Highly disturbing piece at NYT this morning about voluntary child porn: youngsters with webcams who receive money and gifts from pedophiles for undressing and doing perverse things in front of the camera. As you plunge through the muck (just having finished it, I feel like I need a shower), the same story comes out: the feature subject (“Justin”) had a dysfunctional relationship with his dad, and his parents were divorced; he didn’t have many friends, but he had a computer in his bedroom and wasn’t monitored by his folks.
He made hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Sick, sick stuff. I think the porners are right: If we just loosen up all those sexual taboos, America will become a better place.
Morons. Send this story to anyone who claims such an absurd thing, and tell them to come out of the sixties.
A few of the cleaner passages from the story:

Minors, often under the online tutelage of adults, are opening for-pay pornography sites featuring their own images sent onto the Internet by inexpensive Webcams. And they perform from the privacy of home, while parents are nearby, beyond their children’s closed bedroom doors.
Not long ago, adults sexually attracted to children were largely isolated from one another. But the Internet has created a virtual community where they can readily communicate and reinforce their feelings, experts said. Indeed, the messages they send among themselves provide not only self-justification, but also often blame minors with Webcam sites for offering temptation.
