MAP-related magazines have been published over many decades. Publications vary from erotica titles of the 1970s, thru first wave activist titles, and more recently, online copies which combine features with non-nude photography. The variety of material aimed at MAPs appears to be as diverse and sometimes cereberal as that found in the mainstream, if not more so.

Where nudist and erotic titles are mentioned, all such publications have ceased their activities. We mention their titles only in service of the historical record and advise against any attempts to obtain copies of material that may violate local statutes.


The first known publication devoted exclusively to minor-attraction was the scholary journal International Journal of Greek Love, edited in the USA between January 1965 and November 1966 by the famous numismatist Walter Breen.[1] According to the blurb inside the journal, IJGL was a "quarterly devoted to literary, historical, sociological, psychological and related studies centered around the phenomenon of Greek love, defined as the love between man and adolescent boy." Despite its small circulation, the IJGL managed to have a considerable impact on gay and lesbian scholarship. As expected, the best researched articles are those that have been most quoted. Jonathan Drake's article on boy prostitution in Turkey[2] remains one of the most cited sources for homosexuality in this country, while Hammond's article on Paidikion,[3] an anonymous 570 page pederasty manuscript ostensibly written by Kenneth Searight c. 1917,[4] and Bradley's survey of lesbian "Greek Love",[5] are two other contributions that have been discussed.

Between the late 1970s and early 1980s, in countries like Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and the United States, taking advantage of liberal laws that allowed the distribution of Child Pornography, were published some legal child porn magazines as such Lolita,[6] Piccolo, Boy and others.[7] In some cases, commercial producers such as Color Climax Corporation took over its distribution.[8] In the US were produced magazines such as Nudist Moppets, which showed naked children three to twelve, and Lollitots, which showed naked girls eight to fourteen years old. The USA made illegal in 1977 using children for pornography, however, some of those magazines had never involved any kind of sex act in the first place. Commercial child pornography ceased in Denmark in 1980 when Danish laws against it were passed.[9] The last child pornography magazines out of the Netherlands appeared in 1982.

In 1979 appeared the first issue of PAN: A Magazine About Boy-Love,[10] an international non-pornographic magazine about boylove published in English in Amsterdam by Spartacus, containing articles, photos of boys and other content of interest for boylovers. In total, 21 issues were published until December 1985. Experts such as Frits Bernard and Edward Brongersma submitted contributions.

During the 1980s, in parallel with the newsletters of the various boylove and minor-attracted people's organizations, many magazines were published more or less connected with these movements, such as Palestra[11] (1985) or Gaie France (1986–1993), gay magazine close to the French New Right, founded by Michel Caignet. Also published, were a large number of photographic journals: Backside[12] (1983–1985), Beach Boys (1985–1986), Eklat (1985) and Photokid (1986).

In 1987, Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia was launched in the Netherlands - a scholarly journal, which took a positive scholarly approach towards the study of pedophilia (in the less age-bounded sense used by activists at the time).[13] From the beginning, Paidika was different from other pedophilia-related publications. It had a professional layout and an impressive editorial board which reviewed the submissions to the journal. During its nine years of publication, Paidika managed to remain faithful to Bullough's (1990, 320)[13] observation and publish a great number of well researched scholarly articles. D.H. Mader's study of pederasty in the Bible[14] and Robert Bauserman's cross-cultural study of boylove[15] are two much quoted pieces. Moreover, what we know about "pedophiles" like Karol Szymanowski[16] and Jacques d'Adelsward-Fersen[17] are through articles published in Paidika. The journal was sometimes attacked and discredited as a "pedophile magazine".[18] The fact that it had an activist aspect allowed many people to downplay the importance of research published in the journal. Bullough and others were attacked for being in its editorial board, while "Dr" Laura Schlessinger and others tried to discredit academics that have published or given interviews in Paidika, like Bruce Rind, Robert Bauserman and Ralph Underwager.[19][20][21]

In 1993, the Amikejo Foundation of Netherlands published the first issue of Koinos, a bilingual magazine in English and German about the beauty of male adolescents. It contains articles on art and politics, academic essays,[22][23] interviews, reviews of books and films, stories and photos of boys, with contributions from several professional photographers. Its name refers to the Koine Greek, the common standard dialect used during the Hellenistic period. It was published every four months and could be purchased through international order and a limited number of distributors in the Netherlands and Germany.

Between 2006 and 2010, the Swede Karl Andersson edited Destroyer, a gay magazine focused exclusively on boys and younger men.[24] The magazine, containing features, photos, essays, interviews, reviews, columns, culture articles and fiction, was printed and officially published in the Czech Republic, but distributed globally through its website. It has received a lot of criticism from the media and child-protection professionals for allegedly "sexualising" children,[25] but Andersson has been quick to defend his publication and gives interviews to argue against his critics.


This is far from an exhaustive list, and is biased towards English-language publications. See, for example, Frits Bernard's list of publications in 1985, mentioned in our external links at the foot of the page.

Print Magazines

"The person who edited the Bulletin in the early 90s, it's most high brow and critically favored period (as in numerous famous or quasi famous authors reviewed it and remarked on the great content), subsequently founded and edited Gayme. I think it was a sort of experiment to see how much traction a magazine could get with the gay community if it was aimed at TBLs and did not have the N word on the cover."[27]

According to "Alcibiades", a former PIE member, this was a cheaply produced A5 newsletter for PIE which consisted entirely of members’ letters. After the 1981 PIE trial had rendered it illegal for rank & file members to communicate directly by post, this was the only means to enable them to hear one another’s voices prior to the advent of internet bulletin boards. Published from 1982/83, Contact! 6 resulted in the second PIE trial, of editor Steven Freeman and two committee colleagues, Roger Nash and David Joy, on charges of “incitement” to illegal sexual activities with children – it had contained a letter examining the question of intercourse. Nash and Joy (neither of whom were connected with the editing of that paper) were imprisoned in 1984. Steven Freeman left the UK prior to the trial to seek political asylum in Holland, but six years later was deported back to the UK and stood trial in 1991. He, too, was imprisoned, for “publishing an obscene article”. PIE wound up shortly after the 1984 trial, its committee too demoralized to continue.


Paedo Alert News. English language magazine published from Amsterdam covering news topics in the pedophile movement.

Spartacus International Gay Guide

Nominally a gay travel guide, but helped organize holidays for indulgent MAPs. Still published, but without its former associations.


Paedophile Action for Liberation (PAL) published this magazine in the UK.

Le Gai Pied

Gai pied, or Gai pied hebdo, was a French gay magazine (1979-1991), founded by Jean Le Bitoux. It's name was suggested by Michel Foucault and, during the Jacques Dugué affair[31], the magazine published supportive statements. The magazine denounced “the new clothes of hatred”, and published an interview with a minor who had relations with Jacques Dugué. The minor refused the status of victim, and speaks of his "affection" for Dugué: "society considers the pedophile as the absolute pervert (...) the one who perverts childhood by giving him a different discourse, by teaching him something other than what they themselves or the school teach him, by showing him how to act or think differently. This is what is unbearable".[32]

Signe de Piste and Art Jeunesse

Signe de Piste ("Track Sign", 1976-circa 1984) was a French boy scout magazine published in Montréal, Canada. It featured scantily clad, non-nude photography and art of boy scouts, accompanied by text about scout activities. The same publisher also created Art Jeunesse (Youth Art), a series of non-nude photo-only booklets featuring named boy scouts who appear to be intended as attractive to readers.[33] The magazine is extremely obscure, and bears the same name and logo as a longstanding publisher (since 1937) of popular adventure stories aimed at youth. The publisher's website shows 1976, the year these publications began, as a gap in the their history, where "Des associations similarities vioent le jour en Belgique, en Suisse, au Canada" (Similar associations have emerged in Belgium, Switzerland and Canada).[34] While future research may determine the answer, it remains unclear, confusing, and open to debate about which organization / group in-fact published Signe de Piste and Art Jeunesse during this time.[35]

NAFP Bulletin

Norwegian Paedophile Workgroup.


Better Life magazine

1970s American precursor of the journals and newsletters released by later paedophile groups, “Better Life” (= “BL”) published in Beverly Hills California, was an A4 magazine of artwork, photos, essays and poetry. The Jan/Feb 1976 edition (vol 3/1) carried a Frits Bernard article “The Phenomenon of Pedophilia” (reprinted in the June 76 C.S.C. Nusleter).

Boys International

Early 1970s British nudist magazine focusing on boys in everyday situations such as swimming. Very little is known about it.[36]


Pederastic revival journal - 1970s. One issue only.

International Journal of Greek Love

1960s pederastic revivalist journal.

Online Activism

Uncommon Sense

Activist webmagazine affiliated with Newgon, and coinciding with the early second-wave of the MAP Movement. Short-lived, but preceded and succeeded by a team blog of the same name.

Modern online Pedophile/Hebephile magazines

Modern online magazines tend to cater to MAPs with a low pedohebephilic AoA. This is thought to be because various "teen" publications such as XY Magazine, instagram accounts and popular culture outlets more effectively cater to high hebephilic AoAs, or are covertly designed with hebephilic MAPs in mind. In rough, reverse chronological order:

Imagine Magazine

Imagine Magazine online copy

Boy-watcher type content, running close to 100 issues. Based around user-submitted fiction on boys' mildly titillating early experiences with other boys. Also features music, movies, humor, video games etc of interest to BLs, but uses the term "LGBT"/"Gay" in place of "Boylove", much like the forums and community surrounding it. Said small community seems to focus on utilizing what is already legally available to boy-admirers, rather than entertaining social change - which our reviewer suspects is banned from the community. First launched in August, 2011 and was created by members of the Shack Forum.[37]

We Are Child Love

Proposed gender-neutral pedophile-oriented magazine mirroring the style of Alice Lovers. We are likely to be able to archive this magazine once it is published.

Ethos Magazine

Ceased publication in 2023. Pedophile-focused photographic boy content (NN/"SFW"/candid and generally excludes teens) and serious features.


The successor to Ethos.

Alice Lovers and True Innocence Magazines

Girllove magazine covered in our article on its parent, Visions of Alice (archives available).

Modern Boylover Magazine ( was known to publish a magazine, which went on after its closure, and is now archived:

Youth Attracted Network International

A short-lived effort in 2003. Little exists in the archive.

Fresh Petals

Defunct. Said by Thomas O'Carroll to be an online girllove magazine of the late 90s and early 00s, not much information exists about it.

Photographic/Erotica/Nudist Print Magazines (not currently published)

Little is known (or, perhaps shared) about these titles from the 1960s and 70s, however many such publications were circulated, featuring both boys and girls. Within Scandinavia in particular, they were said to operate openly and on a commercial scale, prior to Child Pornography legislation. Color Climax Corporation produced legal youth erotica in this era. Inside the pages of child porn magazines sold in the seventies and eighties at sex shops you could find the publishing company address and contact phone number as well as a copyright notice. It is believed that there wasn't a huge recognized demand for them, perhaps due to the quasi-illicit nature of the publications.

Holland, Denmark and Germany produced legal child porn magazines and films from the late '60s up to mid '70s, few such productions were made in the United States. Commercial child pornography ceased in Denmark in 1980 when Danish laws against it were passed, the last child pornography magazines out of Holland appeared in 1982.

The US was home to magazines such as "Nudist Moppets" which showed naked children three to twelve, and "Lollitots" which showed naked girls eight to fourteen years old. The USA made CP illegal in 1977, however some of those magazines remained ambiguous even then, as they did not feature sexual activity.

Coq d'Or

Coq d'Or (founded 1969) was a color magazine featuring photos of nude adolescents and young men published by Lyric International.

Naked Boyhood

"Naked Boyhood" - Nudist content published in the 70s by Lyric International, along with other titles listed.

Nudist Moppets

US Pedophilic age-range nudist magazine.


An American Gay-Interest magazine that contained a lot of adolescent material:


(COQ) International - a Danish firm. Erotic magazine. Contained a mix of hardcore and softcore child porn photographs.


(COQ). Erotic magazine. "Boy", consisted of mere nudity, they also produced another magazine called "Uncle Joe".

Anna and her Father

Also, "Bambina Sex", Danish magazines?


US magazine that showed naked girls eight to fourteen years old.

Japanese Photo Journals

Japan was a late adopter of western Child Pornography legislation and its relative lack of sexual violence during this liberal period stands as a clear example of the ineffectuality of such laws. Photo journals have existed, which sometimes featured nude preteens - permitted, as they had no pubic hair. Nowadays, the trend continues, with worksafe idols type content.

  35. The ISSN numbers of print copies of Signe de Piste and Art Jeunesse during this time, lead to records verifying the Magazines' existence, but offer little detail and sometimes confuse the picture. For example, the ISSN of Art Jeunesse is given as 0383-0853, which matches a publication of a different name "Scout-jeunesse" (Youth scout). Did the same magazine go by different names or, having started in 1976 according to available records, did Youth Scout become Youth Art? By contrast, the ISSN Worldcat record for Signe de Piste matches the print version, but its dating from 1980 may be inaccurate. A May-June 1984 Issue, for example, states in English that the publication has been "on the market" for "8 years", meaning that the magazine had been sold since 1976. This date conveniently matches the official website of the more well-known magazine of the same name, which states that in 1976 "Des associations similarities vioent le jour en Belgique, en Suisse, au Canada" (Similar associations have emerged in Belgium, Switzerland and Canada). They may well have been separate publishers.
