Accusations Regarding Child Pornography in Second Life

Well it was bound to happen eventually.

I have been hearing a lot of noise about age play in SL, and there has been arguments back and forth between those who practice it, and those who are against it

For me if you want to run around and play at being a kid again , fine, have fun. If you want to be a child to an adult avatar, fine. If you want to have sexual relations with an obvious child avatar, there I do have a problem, and feel that points to a larger problem. Yes the two people in the post were consenting adults, but as a RL father of a just turning teenage girl, the idea of someone wanting to even fantasize about having sex with a child, and the video of the encounter is disturbing. This is just my view, and I am sure some of you will disagree with me, I feel that I am very liberal as to peoples sexual practices, but what happened here was not acceptable to me.

This is only going to add fuel to the Identity Verification proponents argument…

Well read the posts, watch the video, make your own decision about this.

  1. Robin (Linden) Harper stated “It has happened a few times over the last four years.”
    It happens a lot more than she thinks or realizes and no matter what they do or how they plan on trying to stop this practice, its going to continue. I am not saying its right.. far from it. Personally I find it very disturbing. There are some thing in my mind that I find very hard to fathom, child abuse, child neglect, and child porn. How a person can even think of doing something to a child along this nature, whether it be real life or second life sickens me.
    Why then do I say its going to continue? The couple caught were a 27 year old woman and a 54 year old man acting out fantasies. They can “card” us as much as they like for proof of age but they cannot clamp down on the fantasies.
    As for this 27 year old woman.. I truly hope she does not have children nor ever has any. She has already proven to the world what little value she puts on children with her own sick little fantasy.
    Well thats my opinion.. please excuse me but I’m going to go throw up now.

  2. Sexual age play? Not cool.
    Linden trying to support their age verification decision with this incident? Not cool.

  3. dinee,
    very true, it happens in RL, it will happen is SL. The thing is that unfortunately it is too easy to provide the “child” whether it is an adult playing or a minor who has snuck in behind it. I also can see the advantages of age play as therapy or just a fun release from the real world. So how do we allow the child avatars, and still keep people from using them for sexual gratification?

    I agree, but just like any unpopular action, any thing that can be used to back up the argument to enforce it will be used.
