There are scientific articles proving Foucault defense of decriminalization of pedophilia and rape.
According to Zizek (2018) in 1968, “the French “progressive” press published a series of petitions demanding the decriminalization of pedophilia, claiming that this would abolish the artificial and oppressive culturally constructed frontier that separates children from adults, and would extend to children the right to freely dispose with one’s body” (p.127). Among the people who signed these petitions, there were Michel Foucault, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre or Jacques Derrida.
In addition, in 1977 “he contemplated the idea that rapists should be punished only for a crime of violence, and not for a sex crime” (Taylor, 2009, p.1) and he added that sexuality can not be the object of punishment under any circumstances (Cahill, 2000)
