WASHINGTON: British writer Milo Yiannopoulos' book 'Dangerous' was axed after Republican conservatives released video clips which seemed to condone sex between men and boys.

"After careful consideration, Simon & Schuster and its Threshold Editions imprint have cancelled publication of 'Dangerous'," USA Today quoted the publisher as saying. 

Confirming this, Milo said: "They cancelled my book."

The gay British writer, who has collected kudos as a self-described "dangerous" provocateur, teetered on the edge of disaster on Monday after the videos of the book got released.

The author is heard talking about his own past as a teenager who had sex with men and suggested that some boys might be old enough to give consent to such sexual relationships, USA Today said.
