“The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct”
Phillip Greaves was arrested in Colorado in December for writing a “how-to” book for pedophilia. He claims that he’s never molested a child and that he has no children. (But of course he said that, who would admit to molesting a child?) Apparently the book talks about “safe sex and avoiding injury to children, grooming and preparing children for sex and teaching children how to lie to their parents.” To me, that’s pretty disgusting. I can’t believe that his book actually got published. It’s even more disturbing that people actually bought that book. He’s on a two year probation and will receive counseling. I was surprised that he’s not going to be registered on a sex offender list. I think that’s pretty ridiculous, considering the book he wrote. If people can be put on the sex offender registry for having sex with a minor (like an 18 year old having sex with their younger boyfriend/girlfriend) then why shouldn’t this guy?
He also wrote another book before his “how-to” guide, called “Our Gardens of Flesh: From the Seeds of Lust Springs the Harvest of Love.” (super catchy, right?) This book is the “study of sex and sexually from its primodial origins through its historical colorations to its ultimate expression as man’s existential celebration of life and development as the supreme expression friendship and love.” Great description, I guess. I’m still not sure what the book is about. I’m pretty sure all that is just fancy-talk for sex.
What do you think? Does he deserve to be put on the sex offender list or do you think he’s not a threat? Also,despite how appalling this book is, do you consider what he did was illegal?
