Criminal profilers have told police that the month Grant spent working with pensioners formed a key stage of his spiral into becoming a gerontophile
- someone who wants to have sex with the elderly.
Twenty- two- year- old Mahaveer, a resident of Sakaran village in Uttar Pradesh's Sitapur district, is not a gerontophile
- an extremely rare deviant who only targets the elderly - has attacked 98 women and 10 men in South London.
According to criminal profilers, the attacker is a 'gerontophile
' - someone who enjoys sex with victims over the age of 50.
Psychologists say he is a gerontophile
- someone who is attracted to older women - as he spends up to four hours with his victims and sometimes shows _ a tender, caring side.
But psychologists have branded him a gerontophile
- someone who is attracted to older women - as he spends up to four hours with his victims and sometimes shows a tender, caring side.
Psychologists say he is a "gerontophile
", a sex attacker obsessed with elderly women.
However, there are also men called 'gerontophiles
' who experience specific sexual attraction towards the old, and this group accounts for a small proportion of the attacks mentioned in the press.
The existence of gerontophiles
of any age is a great comfort to the older man, and the reason at least one friend of mine has the wonderful younger partner he does; though this is apparently not the solution for everyone.
