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.

The Age Taboo

The Age Taboo: Gay Male Sexuality, Power and Consent[1] is a collection of writings about intergenerational (and especially man-boy) relationships, edited by Daniel Tsang. It was published in 1981 by Alyson Publications (Boston) and Gay Men's Press (GMP) (London).

It is an important text within the wider body of literature on man-boy love, and a full online copy can be found on library genesis in the references.[1] Its contributions are further evidence of historical links between MAPs and the LGBT community, and the book was positively reviewed by Cindy Patton in Gay Community News.[2]
