Bill to Band Suggestive Teen Modeling

February 19th, 2008 by flanews

New legislation would make it a crime to take pictures of young children in suggestive poses. Some modeling agencies specialize in taking pictures of girls 13 and younger in suggestive clothing and post the pictures on the internet. Attorney General Bill McCollum calls the pictures a gateway to hard core pornography.

Were dealing with children being exploited and were dealing with the potential, especially for those who are viewing this material, that theyre going to whet their appetites by the erotic nature of these children, young children, in pictures and theyre going to want to get something more hardcore, more truly, technically pornographic and then act on it, said McCollum.

The legislation utilizes the same standards that make it illegal to sell a Playboy or other such magazine to a minor.
