Teacher found hanged today was found to have porno pics of children on his pc. Obviously and rightly he'd have been prosecuted if he was alive. Im going to play devils advocate now .

Agreed a shocking crime when you think of the 'victims'. Set me thinking though, what would the legal position be if a person was found with high quality computer generated pictures of normally banned porno subjects?

I watched a documentary about mammoths last night and you'd swear they were alive and real , but of course they wern't, but it shows we do have the technology to offer pictures moving or otherwise where you cant tell the difference.

If there was no primary 'victim' and people were downloading and watching computer generated porn alone in their own homes. Would it and should it still be a punishable crime ?

Chainsawing someone to death is a true life crime, but you could watch a horror movie where a computer could generate a realistic person who suffers such a fate, and I dont think that would be illegal.

presume as there is no victim then it wouldn't be a crime. My lad did his degree in film studies and there is plenty of cartoon porn emanating from Japan.
I was listening to the report on the radio and it said the police had informed 4 parents. Not sure I would want to know if someone had been getting kicks from photographing my kids. If he had actually been touching them then it would be a different story.

It is classed as illegal in this country, although I can't recall the precise piece of legislation. As I recall from an article I read ages ago it is pretty much treated in the same category as the real thing, despite not involving any actual sentient beings. I agree though Venice that as there is no victim, it seems contrary to logic that it should be an offence.

I think the point here is if you were to be watching porn involving children real or computer generated then that would tell me you had an un healthy interest in children, and possibly go on to offend, so my thoughts would be yes it should be illegal .

Its not often that people do what we see in video games and go round killing people but sadly it does happen. I am sure the victims of this and those connected are equally disgusted by this as i would be about the question venice has been brave enough to ask. Its a subject that is raw on every thinkable level.

Rocks and Dilly -- what would you reply if I posted the following

"If I found you watching 'Chainsaw Massacre'then this would tell me you had an unhealthy interest in murdering people , so I think films depicting killing , should be illegal"

(no Simon you havent missed the point )

Obviously the powers that be approve of the type of film you mention Venice, no one could ever approve of films depicting sexual abuse of children. People that do watch such stuff do so for self gratification and are a great danger to all children.

(Devils advocate remember) Two computer generated films. Isnt it just as sick wanting to watch a graphic film of a person being sadistically tortured, eyes gouged out, fingers cut off, flayed, disemboweled to death as it would be to want to watch a film of a youngster being molested sexually but not even necessarily painfully or causing damage or death ? Is one worse than the other when neither is real ? Both scenarios are illegal in real life.Why only one in computer generated terms? Can you really justify the former being legal ,in the light of the latter being illegal?


Hat off. Id have all such scenes banned whether trick photography or generated by computer . Doesnt matter that its not real, it LOOKS real, so I reckon it damages our collective morality and individual psyche.
