You Are Your Story - Secret Love: Eros Between Boys and Men

sculpture of a boy and a man"Secret Love: Eros Between Boys and men" is the English Translation of a Book originally written in Germany. It was translated by Jeff Nickel. In it Wolf Vogel describes a number of very different sexually expressed relationships between adults and children. He suggests that, in general, children should be able to choose their relationships just as adults do, and re-assures the reader the they will not remain in relationships which are aversive or harmful to them. In his forward to the book he describes how the book came to be created:

"I'd placed ads in two German daily newspapers, asking adults to tell me about any such love-relationships they may have had. I wanted to know whether there existed sexual contacts (including over long periods of time) between minors and grown-ups for which the label "abuse" seemed inappropriate. The men who responded to my ads provide the narrative to this book. They wanted to describe their feelings as children at the time from the perspective of the present-day; but they also hoped their testimony would contribute towards a more nuanced way of looking at what -- for many people -- is such a difficult topic."

As a resource for showing what such relationships can look like this book is on a level with Sandfort's “Boys on Their Contact with Men.”
