We have been made aware of the fact that Yesmap's (now disabled) Matrix server was entered under false pretenses by the hostile editor of a supposed "MAP" website some months ago. While some screenshots/logs have been shared (including those of members suffering from mental-health and legal problems), no personally identifying information has been leaked. We are currently compiling a dossier of malicious and criminal activity we believe the publishers of this website are responsible for, and will soon publish and promote it.

Ipce (f. 1987) is an international, non-governmental organization that uses online publishing to inform a broader and deeper understanding of attractions between adults and minors, including relationships when and where they occur. The current secretary of Ipce is Frans Gieles.

Contrary to claims sometimes posted (and intermittently corrected) on Wikipedia, the organization has long counseled against such relationships within the present legal and social context.[1]

The group used to run a private forum for the discussion of this literature and held in-person meetings in various European locations on an annual or 2-yearly basis.

History

The organization was created as a preparation by the adult-minor groups to the international gay and lesbian organization ILGA,[2] but after they were thrown out of this organization, Ipce kept on, first as an organization for international pro-pedophile groups, but more recently as an organization of private persons.

Mission Statement

"Ipce is a forum for people who are engaged in scholarly discussion about the understanding and emancipation of mutual relationships between children or adolescents and adults.
In this context, these relationships are intended to be viewed from an unbiased, non-judgmental perspective and in relation to the human rights of both the young and adult partners."

In more detail

Ipce has supporters who are encouraged to make donations to keep the organization afloat. Ipce once published a newsletter and a magazine, both edited by Frans Gieles. Before the electronic Newsletter, Ipce published a paper newsletter, which documented information about group meetings they had in the pre-digital period. The group met once a year to discuss internal and wider issues. Ipce meetings were a good opportunity for interested persons to acquaint themselves with one another, and attracted personalities as wide and varied as MAP Activist Thomas O'Carroll, pederasty researcher Richard Yuill and the outspoken gay activist, Troels Peter Schmidt.[3] Meetings had occasionally been hosted by a female, self-identifying pedophile.

The functions of forum and annual meetings are currently suspended due to lack of demand.

  • The 1999 meeting was online. The 2009 meeting in Hamburg was in effect held at various locations due to sudden illness of key attendees. The 2010 meeting, held in an historic Dutch seaside resort, was run alongside a much larger IBLD meeting.[4]

Controversy

A former member (Tom O'Carroll) has faced some legal troubles (unrelated to Ipce per se). This happened after a police officer who was investigating him infiltrated:

"This is born out of our experience in Hamburg in 2004, where we had a UK police officer as an infiltrator - who, incidentally, did not find any illegality."[5]

Also, in 2004, the former Glasgow University academic, Dr Richard Yuill was attacked and libeled by right-wing journalists for attending a meeting as part of his research. This followed an undercover investigation, carried out by Ireen van Engelen, who passed information on to the Scottish Daily Mail journalist Marcello Mega.

Since these events took place, Ipce's security measures have been tightened considerably.

In 2024, the organization (almost defunct) was described by the Daily Mail, after a woman called a radio show in Philadelphia, claiming to be a representative.[6]
