2014 CANTOR Elevated rates of a typical handedness in pedophilia: Theory and implication.

Genetics, prenatal stress, and postnatal environmental circumstances are only a few of the many variables that affect handedness. Numerous populations with neuropathology have been found to have a characteristic handedness, whether it takes the form of greater sinistralIty or less lateral preference. A typical sexual tendencies, particularly paedophilia, are associated with lower frequencies of right-handedness. In order to identify the pattern of a typical handedness in paedophilia, this paper analyses the biggest sample of individuals who have ever had phallometric assessment. In particular, this work builds on past research’s dichotomous categorization of participants as either right- or left-handed and/or use of self-reported writing hand by utilizing the laterality quotient of the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory.
