Greaves, who was a nurse's aide until he retired because of a disability, said he was not encouraging pedophilia through his book, but, pointing to the case of Mary Kay Letourneau, the Washington state teacher who had an affair with her student, said he believed it was possible "to have a loving, sexual relationship with a child."
While the book was written from the perspective of an adult, he emphasized that he was not speaking from personal experience as a pedophile.
"The only personal perspective it was written from was that I was introduced to sex at the age of 7 by a 10-year-old girl. It was oral sex. And I carried on through that having that kind of sex with children until I was about 15," he said. "And everybody involved enjoyed it."
When asked why he wrote a "code of conduct" that appears to endorse an illegal, abusive act, he said, "I'm not saying I want them around children; I'm saying if they're there that's how I want them to behavior."
Still, Greaves said he understood why hundreds of people on Amazon alone have posted messages condemning him and his book.
"I can see where they would come to that kind of conclusion and to a certain extent I wanted that kind of notoriety to affect the book. ... I wanted it to effect sales," he said.
When ABCNews.com spoke with Greaves Wednesday, he said he had sold just one copy.
"It hasn't increased sales; it just has a lot of negative responses coming in," he said.
Before Amazon removed the book from its store, more than 3,000 customers left comments on Amazon's site, most protesting the controversial book.
"As a mother of a child who has been molested, shame on Amazon for allowing such garbage to be sold on its site," wrote "thirtysomething."
"The author of this book is a predator and should never have been allowed to write or promote this trash that is called a book of information. How many children will be assaulted because of this? Amazon--take it off your site."
