  Child sexuality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Theories of sexual development may be broadly divided into two types: those which tend to emphasize innate biology (which may be encouraged or disturbed during childhood) and those which tend to emphasize sexuality as a social construct (with child sexuality strongly influenced by the larger society).
Sexual exploitation of children was freely indulged in until the latter half of the 18th century, when it was repudiated.
Child sexuality is a complex topic that raises much controversy and a pragmatic way of viewing it in any society is to refer to the legal situation as being a consensus view of public attitudes.

 Prostitution of children - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The prostitution of children is seen as forming part of the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), and is sometimes connected to the trafficking of children for sexual purposes.
It was the limitations of the term child prostitution that led to the development in the mid-1990s of the term commercial sexual exploitation of children as a more encompassing description of specific forms of sexual violence against children related to trade.
The act of prostituting a child is in fact carried out by another party, as had been made clear in the definition provided by the Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography.

 IPT Journal - "Antisexualism in Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Programs — Good Touch, Bad Touch ... Don't ...
I have chosen to reframe the concept of child sexual abuse as "sexual misuse." For many in the prevention field the child is viewed and presented as asexual.
The psychologist informed me that he hadn't really discussed any of the child's sexual behaviors (even though the foster parents had observed the compulsive masturbation at home and were also concerned with it), because he saw them as secondary to issues of anger and feelings of violation of trust which need to be resolved first.
Consider a child who has learned to accept his or her sexual feelings and sexual explorations, who feels good about the sexual parts of the body, and who understands that there may be times when an adult may wish to misuse his or her sexuality for adult gains.

This sexuality of the child is a territory with its own geography that the adult must not enter.
We may even agree that it was he who seduced the adult; but we specialists with our psychological knowledge know perfectly well that even the seducing child runs a risk, in every case, of being damaged and traumatized by the fact that he or she has had sexual dealings with an adult.
But, after all, listening to a child, hearing him speak, hearing him explain what his relations actually were with someone, adult or not, provided one listens with enough sympathy, must allow one to establish more or less what degree of violence if any was used or what degree of consent was given.
