🏛️ Legal

You will never find any illegal content* or pornographic images on this website and we will not knowingly link to webpages that contain these. We may discuss topics related to pedophilia and child sexual abuse, but these discussions will never contain explicit wording.

🛟 Safe

All of the support resources on our list are evaluated using our Content Guidelines, which are based on the latest research about effective support for minor-attracted people and are designed to prohibit resources that contain illegal or harmful content.

🤝 Helpful

Adding new resources to our list is not something we take lightly. We work with the community to ensure included resources meet the support needs of real MAPs. Resources that could negatively affect MAPs' mental health are excluded or listed with a warning.

✅ Genuine

We continuously review all content to ensure accuracy and remove any language that could be stigmatizing. We may use artificial intelligence to supplement our writing process on rare occasions, but all content is held to the same standards, regardless of its source.

🔎 Accurate

Every piece of information on our website is based on up-to-date research, and we regularly refresh our content to ensure accuracy. Our Research page links to resources for those who want to learn more, and our Facts page provides citations for common claims.
