Some offenders are known to be willing to accept surgical or chemical
castration to more or less eliminate their sex drive(s).  I heard of one
case of chemical (hormone) treatment being withdrawn from an offender
who begged for it to be restored, as he knew he would offend again
otherwise.  It wasn't restored, and he offended again. This was a few
years back, so I canot quote chapter and verse, but I expect some have
heard similar stories.
