Most underwear ads and models you see posing in thongs in mainstream media are 13 and 14 years old, same goes for the runway.
Just because they make them look older doens't make it right.
WAKE UP PEOPLE.

Fashion exploits pre-teens and us ALL.

Stop fashion from using children and the rest will follow.

ICKY. This guy is SICK. How is this legal? I thought that using racy photos of underage girls is illegal? Bare bottoms is nudity to me. THis is just WRONG. And if there is no law, there needs to be one made.

What parent in their flippin' mind would allow this? To know that some sicko could get a fixation on your child through this DVD? It's not that hard to find someone if you really want to. This is just wrong! ugh, makes me sick to my stomach!!!

The owner of the site is a genious. He has single handly figured out how to legally profit from photo's and videos of underage girls. He's doing two things at once. One, he providing a valid modeling service to young ladies wishing to put there faces out for possible careers in modeling. Two, he provides {and you cant deny this, but I will say it} provide a "product" to people you have fantasy's of underage girls.

People get a clue!! Everyone here is on the typical tyrannical rant. Fry the perv, pedo this, pedo that.

First understand the laws! There is nothing perverted with admiring beauty across the ages. Just read your history books, review the diverse cultures and societies and then bring your comments to bare. Nothing is more explosive than an ill informed public. Mass ignorance is surely running amok here.

Honestly I am always amazed at how media develops one side of the story, exposes the single side of the coin without exploring the other half. Likewise, people tend to jump on a trumpeting bandwagon without knowing exactly about what they speak.

everyone can keep trying to fault the man who runs this site...and i agree...he is SOOO WRONG...HOWEVER... the parents are supposed to be responsible for the safety and well-being of their children...and although the thought may repulse most of us, these parents are not only condoning these photos, but I would imagine most of them are actually PUSHING their children into getting these photos made. My youngest has taken dance lessons for years, and this year we made the decision to change dance studios. The reason? At 9 years old, the girls were going to dance to "I Touch Myself" and part of the routine included the girls laying spread eagle on the floor. Offensive? YES! We quit...however the routine won 2nd place in a national dance competition held in Houston, Texas. Does this say anything about our society? When parents allow 9 year old girls to dress in 2 piece outfits, and dance like little strippers, just to gain "national exposure" to "further their careers" it is no surprise to me at all that this kind of website not only exists, but thrives due to the blessing these parents give these pedophiles, all in hopes that the person they have given birth to will be their meal ticket into Hollywood.

Oh wow, you people are sad,
get over it,
that's all I have to say.
If a picture would not be considered pornagraphy with a 18 year old in the pic, then that same pic with a child in it can not be considered pornagraphy, either.
so get over yourselves,
just because you don't like it, doesn't mean you need to judge.
You don't shit gold and you don't piss perfume.
Your opinion isn't the only one, your word isn't the last one, and truthfully, you need to stop being so fucking pias and judgemental.
You have no idea what the parents motive was, nor do you know anything about the website owner or the children.
I bet half of you haven't seen the site, you just have your head so far up your ass that you'll believe whatever shit people tell you.
It's not stuff like this that fucks the world up, it's ignorant, self-righteous, judgemental people like all of you.
Good day,
Someone with a brain.

I AM A COLLECTOR OF LITTLE GIRL PICTURES AND I DO NOT FIND THEM TO BE DISGUSTING. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE THESE TYPE OF PICS AND SOME OF THE PICS YOU "BETTER THAN THOU" IDIOTS HAVE OF YOUR OWN CHILDREN? ALL ONE HAS TO DO IS GO TO THE BEACH AND SEE LG'S RUNNING AROUND IN VARIOUS REVEALING SWIMSUITS AND STRIKING PROVOCATIVE POPSES. NEED I REMIND YOU, THESE SWIMSUITS WERE BOUGHT BY THEIR UPSTANDING PARENTS. I DO NOT LIKE TO SEE THE REAL CHILDPORN SO I CAN FEEL YOU ON THAT POINT BUT, SITES LIKE NEWSTARS AND OTHERS LIKE THEM ARE COOL. BEAUTY PAGEANT MODELS ARE OFTEN MORE SEXUALIZED THAN MOST OF THESE NN SITES BUT YOUR NOT RIDING THEIR ASSES TO HELL ARE YOU, NOPE.
I HAVE MET ONE OF THE MODELS THAT I COLLECTED AND LET ME TELL YOU, I WOULD GIVE MY LIFE TO PROTECT THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL. MAYBE IF YOU CARED ABOUT YOUR OWN KIDS AS MUCH KIDS WOULD NOT BE GOING THROUGH THE HELL THEIR GOING THROUGH THESE DAYS.
LASTLY, YOU AMERICANS NEED TO SHUT THE HELL UP CALLING PEOPLE SICKO AND PERVERTS AND WHATNOT, WHEN YOU GO INTO OTHER COUNTRIES WITH YOUR "SHOCK & AWE" TACTICS. NOW WHEN LITTLE SAHIM GOES DOWN THE STREET HE SEE'S HIS BEST 8 YO FRIEND WITH HALF HIS SKULL BLOWN OFF LYING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET. HERES ONE YOU AMERICANS SHOULD REMEMBER. REMEMBER WHEN THE SOLDIERS SHOT UP A VAN FULL OF LITTLE CHILDREN AND A COUPLE OF WOMEN (TEACHERS) IN IRAQ? THINK THOSE COWARD SOLDIERS FELT BAD ABOUT KILLING LITTLE KIDS, HELL NO.
DONT YOU EVER CALL ME SICK WHEN YOU INVADE OTHER COUNTRIES AND MURDER THEIR CHILDREN ALL IN THE NAME THE "GOOD OL U S OF A"!
I HOPE MORE AMERICAN "SOLDIERS DIE IN IRAQ. LETS GET MCCAIN FOR YOUR PRESIDENT THAT WAY YOU WILL STAY IN IRAQ LONGER. BABY KILLERS

I am a pre-teen, and once I found this site called "Little Cuties"....I thought it was about pre-teen modeling, but it was about pre-teen nudity and little teeny 7 year olds in padded bikinis! I was outraged, even though I am not a parent. There were girls around 12 or 12 who were nude! Personally, I think that's disgusting. Someday, I might have a protest about the little cuties web-sites.

I could not agree more. Whats more, a lot of these mighty moral cry babies need to check theirselves because some of the pics in there photo albums that they think is so cute is a lot more revealing than the pics you see on these preteen sites.
Societies like the USA have been brainwashed into thinking that the human body is gross, especially the human child.

Apparently you are disgusted with your own body. Do you walk around wrapped in robes and sheets? You poor soul!

OLD DAVE HATES ME LOL
http://daytonaphotography.com/photographers_h...
I had 2 girls that he paid to do videos when they
were minors they came to me and ask if i could get thier photos and info off his website,.
Since they were too young to really understand
what they were doing, this is where the parnets should have known better. It was I that sent the media after him. Dave sees' nothing wrong with what hes' doing, Once your photos end up on the net they are there. Anyone and everyone can have them, and they can haunt for life, this is what I tell my clients who are 18 and over.

and we have alot of PERVERTS on this site
and you know who you are lol,
Hundreds of thousands of young, desperate girls are trafficked each year as sex slaves. Some are lured overseas with the promise of a good job, only to be enslaved once they arrive. Others are simply abducted.

Yes - a bit more clothing and the words 'disgusting' will be replaced with 'how cute'. That's what's disgusting.

People, you have not spent much time outside the US. This stuff is on ad billboards in parts of Europe, and even on the beaches many girls up to 10 or 11 wear no tops (if they are 4 or younger, both boys and girls may be fully nude, especially in Mediterranean area). And don't get me started about Asia. That said, anyone posting this stuff needs to be knowledgeable of the sensitivities of the location they are targeting. Conservative America is not the place. While this is not illegal, you can stop it with your vote. That's how America needs to do it. Crying online will not do anything but show the rest of the world your closed minds, pursed lips, indignant frowns and pruitan self righteous attitudes. Next to the Middle East Muslim states the US is the most body-sensitive on earth. Child porn is strictly defined in US statutes, and it is illegal practically the world over. Sorry, then, this is not child porn. Otherise the site would be folded and parents arrested.
