Perverts and Predators is the only available work that deals in-depth with the laws against sexual offending and highlights the significant role of the media in shaping sex offender legislation. The authors provide analysis of sexual offending from the unique perspectives of sexology and criminology, maintaining the premise that sex and sexuality are positive and healthy and that the only way to deal with the issue of sexual offending is through sex positive education and counseling.
