Currently being sold on Amazon in the category of Sex Tourism is "Age of Consent: A Sex Tourists Guide." This book promotes pedophilia and, whether the author knows this or cares, he and anyone who purchases this book is directly supporting sex-trafficking and slavery. http://www.amazon.com/Age-Consent-Tourists-Guide-ebook/dp/B005S18YGS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1343951217&sr=8-2&keywords=sex+tourism

A snippet from the book: "On the flipside, there are many countries on this planet where the age of consent is as low as 12 or 13, whilst one country has no age limit whatsoever! Before travelling, whether you are going as a backpacker, for business purposes, or as a sex tourist, you need to invest in this comprehensive guide to the age of consent laws in every country in the world! It will keep your fun legal!"

While what he is encouraging may be legal in other countries, it is unethical in all of them.

These are some quotes from Amazon's code of standards:
"At Amazon, we have a strong commitment to conducting business in a lawful and ethical manner, including engaging suppliers that are committed to the same principles."

Please sign my petition to have Amazon.com remove this title down and prohibit similar texts from being sold on their website.

      Amazon has removed this item from its website. Though we are still pushing Amazon to create some kind of monitoring for self-published books to prevent something like this from happening again.

      This book is wrong and unethical. So many children put in horrible situations and people are choosing to prey on them.
