    He's talking about "adults exploiting children" and "children abuse others" which is very rare and most of the time it's something completely different as you will know. He's old though so he's not got a clue what's happening.

    Do you not think the main issue with nudes happens when a young person sends it to another? And that it's when either they both do it with consent or one sends it spontaneously?

    Because what Good Bloke seems to think adults are the main issue here.
    Doesn't really matter if the main issue is between two underage people rather than an underage person and an adult given that's not what they objected to to start with. The objection was to Napp complaining the government were busy bodies for trying to police distribution of underage images. Problem is once it's out there, you've lost control of it and it can end up anywhere - production of child porn is still production of child porn even if it's planned to just be shared between the child in question and their partner.

    Just don't send nudes. Literally don't understand why people do it. Just waiting for someone to get their hands on them and show people you don't want seeing them. Seems like a stupid thing to even consider

    He thinks no such thing. The biggest problem is more likely to be with those that further publish pictures they have received from other young people. There is no particular problem when all is friendly and with mutual consent. The problem arise when a desire for revenge over a terminated relationship cuts in or some clown thinks he has licence to show his mates what he has received privately.

    I have suggested that society has a sanction against such people if dissemination of indecent pictures of minors is illegal but wouldn't if it were not (though it cannot prevent the problem). You have declined to answer my attempts to elicit your take on it, so we are left to believe you don't have one.

    "It is illegal to either send or receive nudes of someone who is under 18."
    The law is actually quite complex in this area. It is 18, or it is 16 if sent between people who are married or living together in an enduring family relationship.

    Well this contrasts with what you were saying earlier on in the thread.

    A sanction on people who send it or a sanction on people who spread it? Harshly punishing those who sends it seems excessive and gives the impression that both are equally bad when really it's spreading the images that does most damage.

    A Manchester mum won a legal review to dispute the police keeping a record of her son's naked photo details.

    Fourteen-years-old at the time, the boy wasn't actually arrested or convicted, but the police are keeping a report on their database under the section 'obscene publications'. His mum is worried this will hang over him for the rest of his life.

    So how much do you know about the laws around sending nudes?
    Doesn't say anything about the girl when she showed numerous people an under aged boy's dongle. Got any info on that? She could be charged with stuff as serious as possession of child porn and distribution of child porn.

    Both parties are idiots imo, I'd never send nudes and if someone was to send me them then I'd not show others.. Just common sense not to considering it's the internet and you don't know what others do with your photos.

    I actually thought that was interesting too. It'd be good to understand what happened with the girl, although I know when it comes to minors there's not often a lot of information.
