Unfortunately, while the PIE might have been outcast and past insouciance towards child abuse removed we are still caught in a 'strange moment in our sexual social history'. 
We cultivate child stars and have them cavorting sexually on Britain's Got Talent. We produce child mags that are sexually obsessed and explicit. We produce children's TV that promotes the myth that the only purposeful pursuits for the young are dating, dancing and performing. Our fashion industry pushes children into wearing make up, the latest fashions and being body beauty conscious. Children's clothes are increasingly suggestive with design lines deliberately leading towards the sexual organs. The music industry produce videos and lyrics that are shockingly sexual directed at a young audience.
Meanwhile we are coy about sex education, remain prudish about handling direct sexual questions from children at home and are incapable of providing balanced sexual information at school. It seems that we want rightly to build an impregnable wall with regard to sexual relations between adults and children, while at the same time allowing adults to deliberately sexually stimulate the young for their own ends yet refusing to be open, frank and informative about sexuality with them.
Perhaps all this represents a paedophilic mindset that has been forced underground and expresses itself in these, at present culturally respectable and acceptable ways, while the base instincts remain predatory and reprehensible.
