A MAPs Journey is a podcast about non-offending, anti-contact minor-attracted persons (MAPs) "MAP" is an umbrella term for nepiophiles, pedophiles, hebephiles and ephebophiles. While society believes "pedophiles" to be responsible for all child sexual assault, research has proven this to be untrue: most MAPs do not sexually offend.
These podcast episodes explore some of the issues a MAP goes through, from self-identification (which usually occurs in early adolescence) to reporting abusive images, to having a family, to advocacy and education work.
This podcast contains no discussion about promoting child sexual abuse in anyway. It is intended as an introduction for therapists, students of sexuality, family members of MAPs and people who are interested in child sexual abuse prevention.
