The note reconstructs the doctrinal and jurisprudential panorama on the crime referred to in art. 609 bis, co. 2, n. 1 cp, focusing on the concept of "inferiority condition" and on the different syndromes that can be classified within eating disorders, disorders that, in the reference sentence, determined the inferior condition of the victims. In particular, anorexia nervosa is analyzed, object of various pronouncements of the jurisprudence of legitimacy due to the deep incision that it causes on the psychological stability of the people who are affected. The analysis then continues through some reflections about the correct classification of the legal asset being protected when the crime of sexual violence is perpetrated within a fiduciary relationship such as that existing between doctor and patient.
