Welcome to the Homepage of the Ipce Web Site

Ipce started as a forum for people who are engaged in scholarly discussion about the understanding and emancipation of mutual relationships between children or adolescents and adults.

In this context, these relationships are intended to be viewed from an unbiased, non-judgmental perspective and in relation to the human rights of both the young and adult partners.

In the course of time, the function 'forum for discussion' has gradually ended. The remaining result is Ipce as a large library:
this web site.

Ipce has had a long discussion about ethics:
The conclusion is in terms of concepts: Make a distinction between ‘pedophilia’ meaning: feelings, and ‘pedosexuality’, meaning: acts.
The conclusion in terms of ethics is the statement: “First, do no harm”, followed by: “and do not take the risk”.

Articles from before 2010 may link back to libraries '1, 2, and 3' (of which library 2 and library 3 still have a separately-indexed page). The combination of these three 'libraries' is indexed manually, on:
