Abstract

The purpose of this article is to contribute to knowledge about perpetrators of child sexual abuse in India. We do so by challenging certain myths and discuss what perpetrators themselves say about their sexually abusive behaviours towards children. In their own words, perpetrators show that how they think about child sexual abuse is very different from widespread assumptions and beliefs.
