North American Man/Boy Love Association
NAMBLA is the North American Man-Boy Love Association. Members of this organization mobilize in an attempt to restructure state and federal law to allow for the physical expression of love between men and boys. Specifically, they seek to change “age of consent” laws which require that a child be of a certain age (which varies by state) before they can agree to sexual intercourse.
The group is partially made famous by their defense by the ACLU on the grounds of free speech.
It is believed that NAMBLA actually has less than 200 actual members.
