Isn't pedophilia a sexual fascination, or whatever, with pre-pubescent children?
Sorry but being attracted to a 16 year with the body of a 26 year old isn't pedophilia, especially if the age isn't known. It's human nature.
16 year olds in this day and age are way more developed socially and physically than the 16 year olds of fifteen years ago.edit on 4-9-2013 by kimish because: (no reason given)

I think sexual predator is the best term to use as well.
Like another member stated before, to label consensual sex between two individuals and label one of the people a rapist isn't fair to people that have actually been forcibly raped. Not to mention the hell that would be brought upon someone to be labeled a rapist, for example a 24 year old sleeping with a 17 year old. That 24 year old would be ruined by the "rapist" moniker much more than sexual predator.
@Little, I knew you were naughty :p

I know this sounds terrible, but when I was a Senior in highschool I dated a teacher. He was a senior engineering student who filled in for a few months
There is not a one size fits all solution to this.
