The title of this thread should be "'e' for 'ephebophilia'", if one really wants to make this a punchline.
The correct description of the alleged relationship would be "pederasty." The Greeks had a word for it, as they say.
Ephebophilia is the Greek term for the preference. Pederasty is the Greek word for the relationship (unsurprisingly they had more than one word). Either would work perfectly fine and would be - unlike the current title - not misleading at all.
Some knowledge, even in this age of Google, is pearls before...
