I'm an 18 year old woman and I've always had strange sexual fantasies. I'm very turned on by pedophilia, but in the sense that I want to be the child that is being molested. I've always been turned on by older men, I normally date guys four or five years older than I am. Lately, my fantasy has been going out of control. When I read articles about a child being molested, I get turned on instead of disgusted. It's come to the point that the only way I can masturbate is from thinking about being molested. Why does this arouse me? I'm grateful for any help you can provide.
