A German sexologist wants to export his controversial approach, but the idea faces legal and cultural hurdles.
KLAUS BEIER is the archetypal German sexologist. Terse, bald, and, during a Zoom call last fall, wearing a blue blazer and clear-rimmed eyeglasses, he exudes annoyance at questions about his work with pedophiles — which, he suggests, is now widely accepted in his country, and is supported by politicians and major philanthropies. Beier heads an institute at one of Europe’s biggest university hospitals and has appeared on numerous national talk shows. In 2017, he was even awarded the Order of Merit, Germany’s equivalent of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Probably the longest article about Project Dunkelfeld ever written. With interesting (and sad) point of view from US, recommended.
