Here we go again, folks. We have a report of child porn depicting children in sadistic/masochistic conduct. We have discussed this before and determined that this is not possible as children cannot exhibit masochism. That is in the realm of adult paraphilias. I've written to this reporter to ask for a retraction or correction. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything back. IIRC, a similar case came out of Portland a few weeks ago. We need to do some quick education here. This is much like referring to child rape as sexual relationships. Children do not have the ability nor the right to consent to these actions. The masochism might be feigned or compelled but then it isn't really masochism, is it? http://www.registerguard.com/csp/cm...-41/manning-child-conduct-attorney-eugene.csp Eugene man gets 11 years for child porn A Eugene man was sentenced Tuesday to 11 years in federal prison for possessing and transporting child pornography, though his charges included no allegations of actual sexual contact with children. Dale Wayne Manning, 46, pleaded guilty in October to e-mailing an image of an adult abusing a 5-year-old boy to another man. In the e-mail, Manning falsely claimed that the photo depicted him and his son, and asked the recipient to perform and photograph a sex act with his own son to send to Manning. Instead, the man re-ported Manning, who has no children, to the FBI. After obtaining a search warrant for Mannings home, FBI agents found 138 image files and one video file of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Some reportedly showed young children subjected to sadistic and masochistic conduct. Defense attorney Bryan Lessley called the governments proposed 11-year sentence disproportionately harsh. He noted that Manning has no previous convictions and said his conduct was minor league compared to cases involving far more images and computers as file-sharing servers." more at link I would also have to strongly disagree with the term "minor league". There's no such league when it comes to child porn IMO. Ask the child or the child's family.
