"The most horrific materialI have had todeal with."
—Detective Noreen Waters, Vancouver Police Dept.
- Written by Robin Sharpe 1982 - 1994
- Seized as child pornography - 1995
- Charged as child pornography - 1996
- Law on written material upheld by Canadian Supreme Court - 1999
- BOYABUSE ruled at trial not to be child pornography - 2002
BOYABUSE was never intended for publication and would probably would never have had more than very limited circulation if the collection had it not been the subject of criminal charges and a series of highly publicized trials. Having succeeded in court I continued to be subject to hysterical political and media vilification campaign, and harassment by the Vancouver police. One way I can defend myself and my writing is to distribute my works as widely as possible so that people may judge for themselves. I must publish. The credit, or blame for this must be awarded to Detective Noreen Waters of the Vancouver Police Department, the crusading anti-porn activist. She was the principal lobbyist for adding written .material to the definitions in Canada's child pornography laws. She and the other police advocates got practically everything they wanted resulting in the most restrictive legislation in the Western world at the time. She personally took over my case when it was withering due to the marginal nature of the material involved, she reactivated the case, placed me under surveillance and organized a team to arrest me early in the morning. She fed the media sensationalist descriptions, appeared on TV. Not satisfied with distortions she lied to the media and other enforcement officials. My case was to be the crowning achievement of her career.
What is BOYABUSE about? For those who don't see abuse in every instance of child sexual activity or exposed underage genital or anal region the stories are about agency, courage, fortitude. Boyabuse extols virtues currently in disrepute. I intended parts of it to be blackly humorous. I like to treat the most bizarre situations as if they were ordinary, everyday events subject to ordinary concerns and etiquette. My stories are mostly about consensual acts, in the sense of consensual before the word was appropriated and corrupted by activists and legislators. Willing, often for a price, may be more descriptive. While many of my characters are indulgently sadistic only my few villains are really violent or cruel, or practise humiliation. I love playing with serious absurdities.

This is a fictitious chronicle of the schooldays of England’s best known flagellant (today we would call him a spanking fetishist) at the famous flogging school of Eton College.

He was radical, a free thinker, a supporter of unpopular causes, and a uranian in those pre gay times. The year 2009 will mark the centenary of his death. All the story’s characters agree that there is no torture, a little blood mind you which adds a nice touch of colour, but absolutely no torture. You have now read my disclaimer.

- A shocking exposť of child sex tourism (early 1990s).
I started this story early in 1995 while I was staying in Sri Lanka but my notes were seized on my return to Canada. However I started working on it again occasionally during my legal troubles and this eventually became the basis of the version here. After my acquittal on my written porn charges in 2002 the original notes were returned and used to revise this newer version.
- Abandon your rectitudes and tune in !
In 2003 I wrote: Who (or what) am I? I suppose most Canadians already know: I am the nation’s most notorious child pornographer. During my more than fifteen minutes I was also the most reviled man in Canada. If that’s not enough I offer the following.
Well, I am a retired jack of all trades almost. I am a second generation English English Canadian who grew up in working class Victoria B.C. in the 1940s. As a young boy I was a nerd, a loner and religiously Anglican. I had no friends until my early teens and didn’t start to overcome my hypermoralism until I was liberated by booze which has remained my drug of choice... Rest....
