A relatively new word, that deals with the arousal, attraction of people, based on age differences. Includes various other terms, for specific age discrepancies.



In 1986, John Money coined this term.

It is based on the Greek words "chronos" meaning 'time' and "philia" meaning 'love'.

Not yet widely used by sexologists.

More of a catch all, in where the specifics are left to the more individualized terms, but that this refers to those who have a disorder, a sexual attraction, in which age plays a dominant role.
