Response to “Porn Stars Who Look Like Kids” February 10, 2006

In response to Milly’s February 9th Blog Entry.
I respect Milly’s argument that younger-looking porn stars may promote child pornography, but I completely disagree with both her argument and her hastily-drawn conclusion.
First, wouldn’t we rather satisfy a potential child predator with pictures or movies of naked legal-aged, but looking under-age, adults, rather than have them go searching for the real thing? These predators are going to search for such images or movies regardless, why not give them the opportunity to stop looking once they find this safer alternative? I believe that some of these child pornography viewers might feel bad about what they watch, they just have an uncontrollable impulse- why not give them the chance to view young looking adults instead? Maybe some children can be spared some humiliation in the process.Second, how in the world would we regulate such a law? Are we going to have the local police department approve each porn star for the age that he or she appears, rather than what their driver’s license says?Lastly, who is going to police and divide the porn stars into the two groups- one group of those who try to look innocent to promote “child pornography” (as Milly’s argument goes, although I have issue with “promote”, because I actually think this would demote, as my first argument explains) and a second group of what can only be called serious ( =0 ) porn stars who are eighteen and may happen to look fifteen, through no fault or effort of their own. How do we prove who is trying to look underage, and who just naturally looks that way? And what happens then? Do we tell the young looking ones they’re not allowed to participate in pornography until they start looking eighteen? I can’t wait to see the age-discrimination law suits there.
I believe this is a matter which cannot and should not be policed. There is no up-side to policing the matter, and every reason to roll with the punches with this one.

I understand your argument about not being able to regulate such a law. Yes it would be a difficult task. However we should not be, in any way shape or form trying to satisfy a child predator’s needs. Your basic claim is that allowing them to view porn stars that look like a children will in some cases prevent them form actually seeking out children. As I said before I think that it will increase a greater danger to children because no one viewing these materials is ever going to meet these young looking porn stars, so when they start to want more than just watching young girls who do you think they are going to seek out? They are not going to go looking for the porn star in the video. They are going to look for any child that they can get next to. We should be offering child predator’s help not another way to satisfy there obsession with children. We don’t offer alcoholics more beer, their offered AA meetings.
