This paper looks at the similarities between child abuse and pornography and the relationship between them. The author explores the world of pornography and its complex relationship to the world of child abuse. Pornography is discussed in detail investigating its effects and whether it creates a predisposition in certain individuals to commit violent sexual acts.
From the Paper:"Before delving into an analysis of child abuse, child rape, and child pornography, the issue of pornography itself must be examined. Pornography is an extremely muddy issue. Does sexually explicit material have a detrimental effect on the individual? Does access to pornography contribute to misogynistic tendencies and sexism? Or on a more extreme level, does it create a predisposition in certain individuals to commit violent sexual acts? Indeed, even the definition of pornography is somewhat in dispute.
There are two types of material that are often considered pornographic. In the first type, males or females of an appropriate age are depicted in erotic poses. They are presented as equal partners without subjugation or any sign of violence. This first type of pornography is often referred to as erotica. The Playboy or Penthouse magazines would be an excellent example of this type of pornography that has been developed for males. Conversely, Playgirl magazine or one of the many romance/erotica novels available at local bookstores would be the equivalent for women."
