This research employed post-conviction polygraph testing on first offence internet child abuse image downloaders. The study systematically addressed the different child sexual behaviours exhibited by 38 men who were convicted of possessing child pornographic materials. The results indicate that additional risk-profile data are essential for the reduction of future victimization.
