The René Guyon Society was a possibly mythical American group that is said to have advocated sexual relationships with children. It was named after René Guyon, a former judge who served on the Supreme Court of Thailand for 30 years and who, apart from traditional judicial work, wrote on sexual ethics in his work The Ethics of Sexual Acts.[1]

The entity's motto is said to have been "sex before eight, or else it's too late."[2] According to some sources, it was based in Beverly Hills, California.[3]

The René Guyon Society has been identified, along with the North American Man/Boy Love Association, as an organization "challenging the assertion that sexual abuse is bad because of its effects on children."[4]

In his 1980 book "Listen, America", Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell mentions the Rene Guyon Society as an organization threatening American morality. However, the same book also mentions a "cartoon" called Animal Farm featuring a woman performing bestiality with a pig, when in fact the only known cartoon with that name, an adaptation of the George Orwell book, contains no such scene, thus calling into question Falwell's overall credibility; the claim may derive from pornography starring Bodil Joensen, whose infamous bestiality videos were sometimes referred to as "Animal Farm" in the UK.[5]
