Zeitschrift fur Sexualforschung Vol. 3 #3 pp. 242-245 (September 1990)

At that time I held the view, based on studies of my own conducted at various locations, that non-violent sexual acts upon children do not, in and of themselves, cause any lasting psychological harm. When, however, harm did occur, this was due to the reactions of those in the child's environment.
