Paul and Shirley Eberle are American authors. Paul Eberle is a former writer for the Los Angeles Free Press. [1]


In the 1970s, the Eberles published a Pornographic publication called Finger, and from 1971 through the mid 1980s, they edited the soft-core pornography magazine L.A. Star.[2] Finger promoted the radical libertarian philosophy of free sexuality and published uncensored and unedited material that was submitted by its readers.

In the 1970s Paul Eberle published children's books including Mr. and Mrs. Pussycat and The World's Worst Poems.

The Eberles published The Politics of Child Abuse (1986), on false allegation of child sexual abuse in the day care sex abuse hysteria in progress in the USA at the time, and in 1993, The Abuse of Innocence, covering the McMartin preschool trial. Alan Dershowitz called the book, The Abuse of Innocence, "... a wake-up call to those who believe that prosecutors and their experts can be trusted to do justice in the emotional context of child abuse."

In 2006, Paul Eberle published a book on the phenomenon of road rage.
