The term has a range of definitions, as found in psychiatry, psychology, the vernacular, and law enforcement. The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) defines pedophilia as a “disorder of adult personality and behaviour” in which there is a sexual preference for children of prepubertal or early pubertal age. It is termed pedophilic disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and the manual defines it as a paraphilia in which adults or adolescents 16 years of age or older have intense and recurrent sexual urges towards and fantasies about prepubescent children that they have either acted on or which cause them distress or interpersonal difficulty.

Online Predators vs. Sex Offenders
In some aspects, online sexual communications may be safer than in-person encounters with sex offenders.
For one, the lack of physical proximity to an offender may stave off physical contact. A youth initially drawn in by an online sexual interaction may reconsider, or the interaction may be discovered and shortcircuited because online communications can be more readily intercepted and confirmed than in-person conversations.
Also, online interactions may increase the probability that an offender will be prosecuted and convicted because incriminating evidence can be collected from cell phones and computers.
On the other hand, online communications may facilitate certain sexual offenses that do not require physical contact, such as child pornography production with adolescent victims, arrests for which appear to be growing. Education programs should warn young people that sex offenses include online interactions by adults who send minors pornography, expose themselves on webcams, or solicit sexual images or cybersex from minors.
