Well I'm doing a research about the history and background of Child Sexual Abuse and due to the few sources related to the topic, I've been stucked ,but recently a I found this book "The Encyclopedia of Child Abuse" with a few lines about the topic:
"Prepubescent boys were commonly prostituted in brothels in ancient Greece and Rome" With no references
The problem that it seems to contradict certain aspects of the Greco-roman cultures
first of all male prostitution in Greece was in essence restricted to adolescents (Affairs of the Heart (25–26)).
Second as far as I know in roman society children have "inviolable" status.
Third it doesn't mention anything about girls.
Fourth, please don't start with the "pederasty" aspect. I refer specifically to children non minors (from 12 and higher) which was the age of consent at the time.
So how reliable is this information ? if anyone knows a better source of information please let me know.
