    The correct term is ephebophilia, "sexual preference for adolescents around 15-19 years of age."  One could argue that many people of this age are sexually active, however, it is still troubling when an old man cruises for teenagers.  (Just typing this has given me the shivers....)  Such attractions are simply beyond the realm of the possible for most of us.  His justification of his behavior because he didn't go after prepubescent kids is creepy and does not address the appropriateness of such advances toward people over which he has real or perceived power.  I gotta go take a shower....
