I think this is a complicated question, because there is no way of knowing how it will turn out until you implement the plan. There are positive
things, and negative things that could result. Right off the bat I can think of a few of each.
Perhaps making that sort of porn available would reduce the number of real children being harmed on a daily basis by those with an 'uncontrolable
urge' to involve children in their sex lives. Conversely it might stoke the flames of perversion and lead to even greater depravity and sickness.
There is a thin line between fantasy and reality, but perhaps if we talked more openly about our desires, and got community support for those whos
desires deviate from the norm, the risk of injury to real children in our society would be reduced. There is an excellent book on the subject of the
fantasy/reality border titled "Bad men do what good men dream."
Japan has quietly condoned graphic cartoon images of seemingly underage sex for years and years, and their incidence of child rape and molestation is
lower by far than ours. They don't talk too openly about their fetishes, but there is something available for every manner of pervert on the streets
of japanese cities. Perhaps this provides needed relief from the internal tension unsatisfied desire can create.
Children do have sex, about as much as adults actually. When I was a kid, 15 was the average age you lost your virginity, for my parents it was mid
twenties, I imagine now it's around 12/13.
There is a natural tendency in the human animal to desire the fittest mate, with the most years left to breed. Once a woman starts ovulating, and in
many cases even before, she is considered a viable mate (biologically) in the eyes of every man around. Whether he admits that desire, even
consciously feels that desire, denies that desire, or indulges it, is entirely up to him. In the end we can't change people, so we have to change
society. I'm not advising parents marry off their daughters at 13, I'm simply pointing out a fundamental break between what we feel and what we are
told to feel (under threat of imprisonment or death).
Young girls are in many cases attracted to older men. Biologically this can be explained as a desire for protection and resources. Similarly older
women are often attracted to young men. There are many, many exceptions, but those are the general behaviors we've evolved. Competition for mates
is fierce in this country, despite the abundance of both sexes. Read the book "The moral animal" for more information about our system of 'serial
monogamy' and how it injures our society in a multitude of ways. Perhaps the way around this is structured dating in the early-teen years, followed
by marriage and then sex. In order for this to work, our society would have to completely change its media focus.
Victimless child porn is really the only kind acceptable. So if we must have some form of child porn, it has got to be that. In mexico and many
other places, American tourists take advantage of local children without fear of prosecution in their home country. Thailand is famous for its child
prostitues, as is Canada in some places. To change our system and allow other countries to continue to exploit their children in the sex trade will
only insure one thing, a continuation of American tourism 'round the world. It appears as though we have a serious sickness, though not a wholly
unnatural one, and that is the problem that must be solved or mitigated. I think animation does much to mitigate the problem, and I'm unsure if it
can ever be solved. It took us millions of years to evolve into what we are -- sex crazed murdering sociopaths bent on breeding and destroying all
opposition to our bloodlines eventual domination of the globe. Is it unreasonable to assume we can change that overnight? I think so.
