Bullough, E.V.L. & Bullough, B., "Problems of research into adult/child sexual interaction"*, Issues In Child Abuse Accusations, vol. 8, no. 2, 1996.
Vern and Bonnie Bullough of the State University of New York at Buffalo discuss the legal and political restrictions that prevent serious research from being done into adult/child sexual interaction, in spite of the large amount of money available. They discuss media misrepresentation of the issues, mandatory reporting laws, and attempts at character assassination that render such research "dangerous and debilitating."
