 Polk County Sheriff’s Office charges pedophilia guide / training / grooming book author Philip Greaves, 2nd with Distribution of Obscene Material  Depicting Minors Engaged in Conduct Harmful to Minors (FS 847.011(1)(C))  


 

Detectives with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, working with local law enforcement in Pueblo, Colorado, affected the arrest of Philip Greaves, 2nd (DOB 01.13.1963) of 623 E. 2nd Street, Pueblo, Colorado on a Polk County (Florida) Felony Warrant.  Greaves has been charged with Distribution of Obscene Material Depicting Minors Engaged in Conduct Harmful to Minors (Florida Statute 847.011(1)(C)).  The offense is a 3rd degree felony.  Polk County authorities are seeking extradition of Greaves to Florida.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office, working with the State Attorney’s Office for Florida’s 10th Judicial Circuit (Jerry Hill, State Attorney), obtained a felony warrant for Greaves’ arrest based upon Greaves’ sale and mailing (distribution) of his pedophilia advocacy, training, grooming, and guide book to a Polk County Sheriff’s Office detective.  The book contains two graphic stories depicting an adult engaged in sex acts with children, specifically describing adult genital contact and oral penetration with a 9-year-old boy and with a 13-year-old boy.  The book also defends, advocates, and trains adults regarding illegal sex acts between adults and children. 

After Polk County Sheriff’s Office detectives and State Attorney’s Office lawyers became aware of this pedophilia training material, undercover detectives contacted Greaves and offered to purchase his book.  Greaves mailed what he referred to as his own personal copy of his book, signed, after being paid $50, to an address in Lakeland, Florida, within the jurisdiction of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.  Detectives and attorneys reviewed the book, presented the material to Polk County Judge J. Michael McCarthy, who found probable cause that Greaves distributed obscene material depicting minors engaged in activities harmful to minors.  Judge McCarthy issued a Polk County Warrant for Greaves’ arrest, indicating a bond of $15,000 pending first appearance in the Florida 10th Judicial Circuit jurisdiction.  Detectives traveled to Pueblo, Colorado, worked with the Pueblo Police Department, and were present when Greaves was taken into custody.  He is being booked into the Pueblo County Jail in Pueblo, Colorado. 

Excerpts from “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure; A Child-lover’s Code of Conduct,” by Phillip R. Greaves, 2nd, Copyright 2010:

·         “Pedophiles feel great affection for their young partners, and do everything possible to avoid causing them any pain. Because of this, pedosexuals never practice intercourse with juveniles under thirteen, and usually not before sixteen.”  Context:  Greaves was defending pedophiles and attempts to distinguish acceptable acts against different aged children. 

·         “Pedophiles, we must remember, care for and befriend their young lovers.  They are concerned for the wellbeing and pleasure of their little friends, always putting the juvenile’s pleasure and happiness first.”  Context:  Greaves attempts to differentiate between pedophiles who “care for” children and pedophiles who “rape” children.

·         “The actual meaning of the word molestation, however, is to bother, pester and/or annoy someone after they have refused some unwanted attention or another.  Even in a sexual context, bothering someone should be nothing more serious than a misdemeanor.”  Context:  Greaves minimizes child molestation and advocates for lesser or no penalties for pedophilia.

·         “The upcoming accounts describe fairly brief encounters between pedosexuals and young boys.   Of the accounts presented, the first one describes the long relationship of two or three months, with only two sexual encounters during this time.  The second relates a much shorter friendship, of about two weeks, with the same number of sexual engagements.  While such brief, sexual events may actually be ideal for the hit-n-split pedosexual, many would prefer to find an agreeable youngster and just grow older with it and maybe even marry.  The hit-n-split technique is a defensive measure intended to reduce the risk of discovery and prosecution, as is the pedosexual’s practice of being on a first-name-only basis with its juvenile, sexual partner(s).”  Context:  The quote is related to two stories of sex acts between adults and two boys, ages thirteen and nine—both stories involve sexual contact between an adult and a child including obscene acts involving physical contact.  Greaves claims the stories are “90% factual…minor embellishments have been added, however, to protect the identities of the people involved and to give a more complete view of pedophilia and the child lover.”

·         “If both partners are disease free, then it is unnecessary for either to take any preventative measures during sex, or to be concerned regarding any bodily fluids, or their exchange.  When precautions are needed, however, standard condoms go a long way.  Unfortunately, they are much too big to fit boys younger than thirteen.  Luckily, there is a product that is identical to the adult condom, in almost every way, which will do the trick.  Latex, finger coits (sic), intended to protect finger cuts from becoming infected, can provide the same level of protection as the adult latex sheath.  They come in three sizes, small, medium, and large, one of which is sure to fit any child under thirteen.” Context:  Greaves says that protection during sex with children is unnecessary “if both partners are disease free,” but advocates the use of finger cots and condoms “when precautions are needed.”

·         “Understand your [child/juvenile] partner’s physical, emotional, and intellectual limitations, and honor them always: [a] No penetration of anyone under thirteen, either vaginally or anally.  [b] Fellatio may not be solicited from anyone under sixteen, but licking, mouthing, and cunnilingus may be invited, encouraged, and enjoyed.  The tongue and lips may go wherever they please (as tolerated by the child), but no frenching.  [c] Necking may lead to discovery and trouble, it is, therefore, discouraged.”  Context:  These are a part of “standards of conduct” for pedophiles that Greaves advocates.  They come after the four “guiding principles” that Greaves recommends that describe for a pedophile how to groom a child sex victim.  In this quote Greaves gives specific advice on what to do and what not to do in order to avoid detection and to maintain a sexual relationship with a child.  These “standards” are followed by the following quote in bold:  “Do not imagine that you have been given a mere code of ethics.  Instead, consider that the nectar of love has been given from the hand of compassion and grace.

Excerpt from Wikipedia: 

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon.com_controversies

On November 10, 2010, a controversy arose over the sale by Amazon of an e-book by Phillip R. Greaves entitled The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct.[42]

Readers threatened to boycott Amazon over its selling of the book, which was described by critics as a "pedophile guide". Amazon initially defended the sale of the book, saying that the site "believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable"[43] and that the site "supported the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions". However, the site later removed the book.[44] The San Francisco Chronicle wrote that Amazon "defended the book, then removed it, then reinstated it, and then removed it again".[43]

Christopher Finan, the president of the American Booksellers Association for Free Expression, argued that Amazon has the right to sell the book as it is not child pornography or legally obscene since it does not have pictures. On the other hand, Enough is Enough, a child safety organization, issued a statement saying that the book should be removed and that it "lends the impression that child abuse is normal".[45] People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, citing the removal of The Pedophile's Guide from Amazon, urged the website to also remove books on dog fighting from its catalogue.[46]
