A number of very important questions surround the whole issue of public policy in relation to intergenerational love.
* Are sexually expressed love relationships between between the generations intrinsically harmful, or could they be neutral or even beneficial in a more open society?
*How are we to assess the value of bonded relationships between adults and youngsters where erotic affection -- even if not expressed in any sexual way -- is what give energy to the bond?
* Are children sexual by nature, or do they become so only if they are “sexualized” by older children or adults?
* Can children “consent” to sexual activity?
* Is the repression of sexuality in children and adolescents the necessary price of civilized life?
