Etymology[edit]

From Ancient Greek παιδεραστής (paiderastēs, lover of boys), from παῖς (pais, boy) and εραστής (erastēs, lover).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (US) IPA(key): /ˈpɛd.ɚ.ɹæst/, /ˈpi.də.ɹæst/
  • enPR: pĕd'ə-răst'

Noun[edit]

pederast (plural pederasts)

  1. A man who is engaged in an erotic relationship with an adolescent boy; a practitioner of pederasty.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The term pederast has sometimes been incorrectly used to describe men sexually involved with pre-pubescent girls, or child-rapists who don't have any ongoing relationship with the child. For an adult fixated on only sexual involvement with prepubescent children, or for heterosexual child-eroticism, pedophile is used instead.
