Comment on "Review of the Role of Two Antilibidinal Drugs in the Treatment of Sex Offenders with Mental Retardation" and Response to Waterman.
Waterman, Laura J.; Cooper, A. J.
Mental Retardation, v33 n5 p340-41 Oct 1995
This comment on an article by A. J. Cooper rejects the suggestion that a mentally retarded youth's playing of a "sexual game" with a child may be innocuous. Cooper reaffirms that such "sex offending" is usually merely a crude attempt to fulfill normal sexual impulses in the context of poor adaptive behavior skills, sexual naivety, and social ineptness.
