Amazon.com book defending pedophilia sparks boycott

November 10, 2010



An e-book for sale on Amazon.com that appears to defend pedophilia has sparked hundreds of angry user comments and threats to boycott the online retailer unless it pulls the title.

Nearly 1,700 users who had commented on the title as of 9:40 p.m. ET deplored its publication and vowed to boycott Amazon until it removes the self-published title from the site. At least two Facebook pages have been set up dedicated to boycotting Amazon because of the book.

The stated content appears to violate two of Amazon’s content guidelines for digital publication. The company has not returned CNN’s repeated requests for comment.

The author of “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct” said he published the controversial tome to address what he considers unfair portrayals of pedophiles in the media.

“True pedophiles love children and would never hurt them,” Phillip R. Greaves II said in a phone interview with CNN on Wednesday.

    Shame on you Amazon. I intend to boycott Amazon until they take these
    books off their site. There is no excuse to sell books glorifying pedophilia.
