Isn't it weird how you can publish photos of naked adult women and then end up with questions about pedophiles? That's the way it is. Some people seem to think such photos are a breeding
ground for pedophiles. From that point of view I can understand why some people are so strongly against it. I've been asked the following question since I first started to publish erotic photos which is why I included it in my FAQs on FairTradeNudes.com:
Will erotica users not get addicted and always want something more extreme? What about the guy who started with Playboy and ended up a pedophile?
Yes, this story went around the world for sure. Apparently this guy started as a teenager watching the underwear section from a mail order catalog to masturbate. Suddenly he needed something “harder” and he turned to Playboy and Penthouse. But after a while he again needed something “harder”. That’s when he got into hardcore porn. There too, he started with normal mainstream pornography, but he’s desire for something more “extreme” took him to anal and gangbang. He also felt the urge to find younger and younger porn actresses, until finally only child pornography good give him satisfaction. The story ends here. That’s the story this guy told the police and the media when he was arrested for the possession of child pornography.
Sexual abuse of children is very severe. It leaves them scared for the rest of their lives. As a society it is our responsibility to protect every child from abuse. So what can we learn from this story? To me it sounds like this unfortunate man was a pedophile right from the start but he needed years to find it out and admit it to himself. If these were the normal stages every porn user will eventually go through we would almost have a billion pedophiles by now. Most porn users are not asking for something more extreme every time they come back, it seems they come back for more of the same. That’s the story that went not around the world. Children rely not only on our protection but also on our ability to not panic for no good reason. I fear we will do them more harm by leading them to think behind every corner could be a pedophile waiting for them. What about learning to trust other people? And what when our children find out that we’ve been lying to them and there are not nearly as many pedophiles as we told them? But what should I tell my children?
Tell them to be afraid of everyone who’s a little bit different.
