WARNING – Upsetting Material
I earlier posted the chapters by Peter Righton and Morris Fraser in Brian Taylor (ed), Perspectives on Paedophilia (London: Batsford Academic and Educational Ltd, 1981). Here are the introduction by Brian Taylor, and the chapter by Ken Plummer (about whom an article can be read here at Spotlight – I could not personally endorse any censorship of this work, though). Please not that – as with many things I post on this blog – in no sense does posting constitute an endorsement. Perspectives on Paedophilia (like other collections of essays such as Mark Cook and Glenn Wilson (eds), Love and Attraction: An International Conference (Oxford: Pergamon, 1979), Joachim S. Hohmann (ed), Pädophilie heute (Frankfurt am Main: Foerster, 1980), Daniel Tsang (ed), The Age Taboo: Gay Male Sexuality, Power and Consent (Boston: Alyson, 1980), Loving Boys (New York: Semiotext(e), 1980), Mark Cook and Kevin Howells (eds), Adult Sexual Interest in Children (New York: Academic Press, 1981), Larry L. Constantine and Floyd M. Martinson (eds), Children and Sex: New Findings, New Perspectives (Boston: Little, Brown, 1981), Warren Middleton (John Parratt) (ed), The Betrayal of Youth: Radical Perspectives on Childhood Sexuality, Intergenerational Sex, and the Social Oppression of Children and Young People (London: CL Publications, 1986), Theo Sandfort, Edward Brongersma and Alex van Naerssen (eds), Male Intergenerational Intimacy: Historical, Socio-Psychological, and Legal Perspectives (New York: Haworth Press, 1990) or Joseph Geraci (ed), Dares to Speak: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on Boy-Love (New York: Gay Men’s Press, 1997)) is a book with many contributions by paedophile activists and members of the Paedophile Information Exchange (or sister organisations in the case of some of the other books), despite the veneer of being a scholarly publication. In a future post I will attempt a survey at the many ways in which paedophile ideas have infiltrated a whole variety of scholarly disciplines. Some of the material below may also be upsetting to some.

Very useful. But: could you not just scan then, instead of taking photos?
Somone else did the photo work. Sometimes these books are in.libraries or archives. Try asking for a scan of a book and see what happens

AN EARLIER WORK BY BRIAN TAYLOR
I’ve just come here because I was looking for a copy of Ken Plummer’s article. I have found what you have posted very interesting. You might find it useful to have a look at an article in the The Times Higher Education Supplement by Helen Newman in 2009 (‘Paedophilia research both riles and titillates the academy’), and also my two books on paedophilia, ‘Understanding and Addressing Adult Sexual Attraction to Children’ (Routledge, 2010), and ‘Paedophiles in Society’ (Palgrave, 2011). In both of them, but particularly the second, I discuss academia and attitudes to adult sexual contact with children. Best wishes.
