There are many childhood sexual abuse experts, like those over at Thorne (“Digital Defenders of Children“) who feel the term “child pornography” is a disservice to the cause of awareness of what “child sexual abuse imagery” really is; which is very real documentation of the criminal sexual victimization of children. These images are actual crime-scene photos [or videos] that are used for sexual gratification and even for profit by sick individuals. These men come from every geographic, professional, educational, and income level.
According to Section 2256 of Title 18, of the United States Code, child pornography is any visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct involving a minor (someone under 18 years of age). It is a felony, and carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 15-years in prison. Because of worldwide proliferation between offenders via the internet it is considered an international crime.
