Thomas Pidel is a twice-convicted sex offender and military veteran from New York. He was a longtime poster on BoyChat and many Google groups.

Thomas Pidel AKA "Tom" AKA "hitom" and other user names is a known pedophile and convicted sex offender from Pine Hill, New York. He began posting on BoyChat as early as 1997 and was a very prolific poster to Google groups for just as long. He was also a long-time child pornographer as cited by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the federal law enforcement agency that investigated Pidel in 2004.

While in the military, Pidel was convicted of sexual assault charges involving a minor; he was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force in 1994 and spent three years in prison. In 2004, ICE began investigating Pidel's involvement in a Website with images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Once charged, he was ordered to have no unsupervised contact with minors, undergo a mental health examination and register as a sex offender. In 2005, he was convicted of producing and receiving child pornography and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He also admitted to taking sexually explicit images of a 9-year-old boy between 1999 and 2003 and that he had engaged in oral sex with the boy. He further admitted his attraction to boys and that he took medication to control the urges. In the course of the investigation, law enforcement officials seized computers and disks; hundreds of images of minors engaged in sexual conduct were found, having been downloaded from a variety of sources on the internet. He was sentenced in April, 2005 to 12 years in prison.

Jack McQuade, ICE Resident Agent in Charge in Albany said, “We have put a very evil and dangerous child predator behind bars for more than 12 years.”

What's ironic about his conviction is that he adamantly cautioned fellow boylovers against seeking out child pornography on the internet. Aside from his boylove interests, Pidel was fascinated with castration and penectomy. He regularly posted to Google groups dealing with the subject and also had his own Website devoted to it.

My interests are wide, but one major interest, and the reason for this site, is my fixation on castration and penectomy, both to be done to myself and of others that have had it done to them already. I'm 34 years old, and have had this fixation since early childhood.


In a nutshell, I do NOT condone KP or it's distribution, that is about as plain and short as I can get on it.

I still like many pics, but they do not drive me like they did when I first started on the net looking for them.

I spend my entire life working HARD NOT to have the sex but I get three years in jail and kicked out of scouts for molestation anyway

I took pictures of MYSELF masturbating at 13, I was alone, I had my own darkroom where I developed them, I obviously did not abuse myself in doing so, yet when the law discovered them in a search of my place that it was me did not change a fucking thing.

I am much into photography myself, so I appreciate a good image when I see on, and my favorite categories are nature and architecture, in B&W many times, as well as children....

I used to worry about my urges sexually towards boys coming out as my pushing myself on a boy one day, but I no longer do, I have learned that I DO have the control, exampled by many years of real offers and opportunities I did not accept, let alone many more opportunities I could have turned sexual and desired strongly to be sexual but did not do so.

Additional Quotes[edit]

I had talked to Robbie and DN by mail of my own times when I came VERY close to having sex with several boys, and in those cases they WANTED and even asked, and in one case, the boy exposed himself to me, the two of us completely alone, he knew of my interests, and had a hard on, right there, in front of me, pants pulled down.

I am 34 years old, born on April 2nd, 1965, a great year in my opinion, and a very nice month of the year, in New York State in the USA. I am white, 5' 5", about 155 pounds, muscular build on the husky side, and people say I am very handsome, though looking in the mirror I don't see myself that way, and I am a bear, though I hate lots of body hair myself.

Yonkers is where I grew up, South Yonkers to be exact, a very hilly city, with great views of the Hudson River and NYC from the hill range I was on.

I am well known here, people watch me, and I do not live alone, I live in a two family house, my mother lives downstairs.

It sure would be funny, and I would have a huge laugh here myself, if it turned out to be true, and a year or so from now we see busts of thousands of people that used that site to post illegal materials, thinking that using it was actually protecting them, when it very well could be the cops themselves, giving them a gateway to abuse, so they could much more easily catch them.

At first, after jail, I stayed away from boys as much as I could, hoping it would prevent them from getting harmed, feeling that if I did befriend them that I would risk the past happening again and them being harmed in the process, like before. Well, a ten year old boy kept coming to my door, IN SPITE of some harsh reactions by my mother forcing him to leave, and in spite of my asking him nicely to not come around.... The thing is that I knew it would bring up accusations again if I tried to befriend him, so I turned him away, again and again. This went on for about 3 years. Why he kept coming back I don't know, maybe I was the last stop on the rounds in town, hoping for anyone, maybe he heard the rumors about me and so felt I would pay him attention since I liked boys and no one else wanted him, I don't know, it is anyone's guess, and he can never tell us this.

I am gay, I been in gay pickup areas as a kid a lot, I hustled myself.

This is what I was thinking, but I guess not saying. That before I could take any boy home, I would have to both get to know him, and earn his trust, and that takes time, it takes hanging out with them on the streets too. In my past I have done this, not taking them home but hanging out with them on the streets, trying to help where I could.
