This is disgusting. I found the website and as a mother, a human being... I find this website repulsive. Even if it is within the legal limits- IT IS ENCOURAGING PEDOPHILLIA!!!!!! STOP THIS WEBSITE!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah how can this be legal?? Because the parents are ok with it?! Something is wrong here and I don't understand how this schmuck can get away with blatant child pornography! Wake up people! 13 year olds in thongs etc is not's child porn and this guy should be put out of business and put away.

The guy is sick and should be put out of his misery. I saw his website and its disgusting. What kind of parent would let their child pose for a sicko like this? I am sorry, but they are just as sick. I feel so sorry for the children. Our world needs a serious makeover. Evil has taken over.........

I haven't seen the web site, nor would I even look for it. I have an 11 y/o and 17 y/o daughters, and could not imagine letting them pose in pictures that would be sexually suggestive. This may be legal, but that does NOT make it acceptable. Somehow, some way, this has got to be stopped. Isn't there a law aggainst exploytation, even if the parents gave consent.

Parents beware. My son received the following email on his my space:

Have you ever done any modeling or adult work before? I recruit for a San Diego based company looking for male talent to do solo work, which is a masturbation scene. The company does cover airfare, hotel, ground transportation, and food while you’re here. Usually models are here for 2 days. This shoot is for a solo masturbation scene only and it does not involve any girls or guys. It is usually a one time deal and pays $1500. This is a legit offer.
So let me know if you would be interested and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
Thanks for your time,

Does this sound innocent/legitimate to you? This is the type of thing that makes the internet bad news for both kids and adults. I am very concerned. I do not have a daughter but as you can see above, my son is in just as much danger. I wonder how could anyone allow a young girl to model this way??

I wonder if people like John Mark Carr are enjoying this site right now. Nothing more than fueling their fire.

It's certainly bad, but no worse than what area parents do when they dress their prosti-tots up in skirts up to their rear end and parade them around International Plaza. The problem is much deeper than just this site - it's an entire industry and culture based on the sexploitation of kids.

Just because it's legal doesn't make it right!

Just because it's legal doesn't mean there is nothing wrong with it. What kind of "parents" would let their child do this?? Your neighbors SHOULD be against you!

Where are the laws protecting the children. Is this not a form of CHILD ABUSE proliferated by the PARENTS?
Do we not have laws protecting children from sexual exploitation? Where are child protective services now?
Sure, legally the website owner isn't doing anything wrong, but morally it is depraved.
However, aren't the parents of these children breaking some law somewhere? I don't know, but it seems to me that the children are being exploited and are being endangered and if we don't have laws for this already then there is more wrong with this world then I ever imagined could be possible.
I didn't think this would be possible in this country and in this age.

I'm glad to see you monitor your children's myspace. I hope you check for a second account, and/or his internet use.

if you google, you will see what other things this guy is up to.
