Eddie tells the documentary he realised he was a paedophile after using pornography, adding: "When I began to realise the implications of what I had been looking at, I began to really question myself and I was genuinely distressed and worried." He adds that this was at the time in 2000 when eight-year-old Sarah Payne was murdered by Roy Whiting and there was "hysteria that every paedophile is a rapist and everyone is making that jump".
He tells the programme: "I thought I was a bad person.
I thought somewhere along the line I'm going to do something.
"At that time I honestly was just thinking more and more about suicide.
The programme looks at so-called "virtuous paedophiles" and suggests radical changes are needed to child protection that include treatment and therapy for those who come forward despite never having committed any sex offences.
"I, honest to God, won't run away from you and if that is what you want to do to me, you come and do it, because all you are doing in that scenario is just keeping the status quo.
A tube site filled to the top with porn movies, Any Sex gives you plenty of choice when it comes to free porn.
The homepage is jam packed with thumbnails to choose from in a variety of niches and all around 5 to 7 minutes long which I don't know about you, but is pretty perfect for The Porn Dude."It is not a comfortable subject, I don't want to sit with paedophiles, I don't advocate for paedophiles, I feel wholly uncomfortable with them, but ...the damage is done to me and my generation, what I don't want is that to keep occurring because we won't look at new ways and sit down with the offenders before they offend." Dr Sarah Goode, an academic who studies paedophilia, brought the film makers Mr Humphries and German co-director Rudolf Herzog, together with Eddie."Going around abusing children is not acceptable, viewing images of child pornography is not acceptable, but people are just waiting for you to offend before they help you."They are saying 'Do what you want but if we catch you we are going to bang you up', instead of saying perhaps 'Listen, we can help you'.In the documentary he tells Eddie: "Eighteen years ago I was quite violent, I would probably have attempted to kill you." Speaking in London today, Mr Mc Fadyen admitted that the documentary may not be popular with child sex abuse victims, who feel they do not get enough support themselves. He said: "The only reason I agreed to get involved in this was that we can look at this as being potentially another option towards being proactive.
