David Riegel

David Lee Riegel AKA Veridicus AKA Researcher uses his real name in most of his online dealings, but sometimes uses the alias Veridicus to post on news articles when he's involved with the activities of BoyLove Media Watch. He has also used the nick "Researcher" to complain at BoyChat about BoyLinks not being up, as he claimed he needed that for his "research."

He is an author on the subject of pedophilia and has been involved in many online pedophile organizations, including Safe Haven, Free Spirits Coalition. He seems to believe his ideals about "boylove" are superior to the rest of the pedophile community and has specifically said that he does not condone their organizations or activities; however, when reading his writings, it is hard to distinguish his thoughts from those of other pedophile activists. The goal is the same: to use Pedospeak and propaganda to try to make pedophilia more acceptable and to discuss ways to change the laws so that he can legally have sex with children.

His "studies" are pseudo-scientific in nature, and are very thinly veiled attempts at trying to "prove" that sex between adults and children is not harmful.


There is a tendency when discussing these issues to conceptualize boy/older male sex as some the older “does to” the younger, whereas this report indicates that “the evidence indicated that consent, in the “simple” sense, was common, enjoyment was more characteristic than displeasure or trauma,[and] encouragement rather than resistance characterized sexual interactions…

From his website on responsible "Boylove":

The relationship also includes a definite pedosexual attraction on the part of the older, and may include a desire for sexual experimentation, exploration, play, and gratification on the part of the younger.

Radio commentator Laura Schlessinger denounces a study, published by the American Psychological Association (APA), that reexamined the results and conclusions from 59 earlier studies of child sexual abuse (CSA) in more than 35,000 college students. Schlessinger views this study as a "pseudo-scientific" attempt to convince people to accept pedophilia as normal. Author David L. Riegel summarizes the major findings of the research in question, and criticizes the dismissal of scientific research that challenges common assumptions about CSA and its effects on children.

Amazon.com Editorial Reviews

"Is there such a thing as a legitimate sexual relationship between an adult male and an underage boy? Most civilized people would answer emphatically "no," and Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers won't convince them otherwise. Defensive in tone and amateurishly produced, this monograph uses both pseudo-scholarship and anecdotes in its attempt to justify its target audience's actions and feelings." - Christopher Hart

In the December, 2001 issue of the Psychological Bulletin of the American Psychological Association (APA), Stephanie Dallam and others called him a pedophile advocate, and rightly so. His response has now been published in the Winter (2005) issue of Sexuality & Culture 9. ref
