interesting. That explains why the Child exploitation force of the FBI is doing this. Wasn't there a case recently that ruled that producing fictional representations of sex with underaged persons was a crime? Do you agree with that? Similarly, should fictional depictions of rape be allowed, or should that be banned too? It's a very weird area of thought crime we get into. I mean, I guess I am not too keen on obscenity laws. I think the public square should be kept family friendly, but I am not sure at what point we allow the gubmint to confiscate fictional materials.
No. The opposite. SCOTUS ruled that FICTIONAL representation of underage children is legal. As an example, a 25 year old girl can legally pretend to be a 15 year old high school girl in a movie and it is not illegal. The law that was challenged would have made the person who made the film with the 25 year old guilty of child porn when clearly no children were involved. It was the correct ruling.
Actually, it's exactly the opposite - SCOTUS ruled that such a thing was not a crime.
It is. Personally, if the actress is 18 or older, she is allowed to act in an X-rated film. Period. That's the law. When we start getting into the "fictional representation of children" it becomes subjective. What exactly constitutes dressing like or looking like or "fictionally representing" a child?
However, in Max's films, no effort is spared to make his actresses appear as child-like as possible.
