Kincaid is an American academic whose studies into the sexualization of children have led him to the conclusion that all adults are secretly sexually attracted to children but use revulsion at the actions of overt pedophiles to hide their inner feelings.

"If the child is desirable, then to desire it can hardly be freakish,” Kincaid wrote in his book Child-Loving: The Erotic Child and Victorian Culture. "To maintain otherwise is to put into operation pretty hefty engines of denial and self-deception."
