Chronophilia refers to a group of patterns of sexual arousal is associated with age discrepancy between the sexual partners. The term was coined by John Money, from the Greek roots chronos, "time" and philia, "love".
- Teleiophilia (from Greek teleios, "full grown") is a rarely-used term for individuals who are attracted to older adults. It is usually not considered a paraphilia, and therefore the word is little-needed. It is used occasionally, though, to refer simply to normal adult-to-adult attraction in order to distinguish from pedophilia.
Alternatively, Janssen uses the term "Peripubescent Teleiophilia" in reference to "crush" phenomenon

- Gerontophilia refers to sexual attraction to the elderly among the non-elderly.
- Pedophilia (by definition including nepiophilia) differs from all these conditions in that it is a clinically-recognized disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. This classification and the inclusion of nepiophilia is the subject of controversy.
