Is illegal material that easy to get?

Postby ocdisnotme » Wed Sep 04, 2013 10:50 pm

Hi

I am just after some answers, hopefully to ease my anxiety. I am worried cause I clicked on a link while on an adult site (pornhub). the link showed a girl that looked quite young. it took me to a site but it didn't look like child porn.
after this I started to stress and worry that I may have downloaded child porn on to my hard drive. so I went overboard and smashed it.

I am asking for help from any pedophiles on here to give me answers plz. how do you get child porn? file sharing? is it that easy to get thru google? does it cost money? I guess I am making sure I didn't do anything illegal.

also can I get arrested without a hard drive ? i'm from Australia

I guess I just want to hear that I am ok and that it isn't that easy to find and that I am not in trouble. ( I asked this question in another forum without much help, so I am hoping pedophiles out there can help me)
thanks

I believe kids down to 12 or 13 commonly appear on user submitted porn sites. There isn't much to stop them. I'm not sure this is really enforced against all that much. It is perhaps too common. But people do get in trouble for it occasionally. Sometimes teens themselves.

But younger than that, people wanting illegal material would probably have to "trade" with someone. That is, email with another pedo who is actually collecting and trading illegal material. I wouldn't do this. And don't. Some of those "other pedos" are surely going to be the police. Don't participate in this, as I don't, and stay safe.

You may be able to find some legal pictures on popular image hosting sites. There are a lot of little girl admirers out there. Some of them make use of these types of services (flickr type stuff). There are many thousands of beautiful (legal) pictures of girls (or boys) out there. Some of these people take these pictures themselves and are actually really good photograpers, that I would say are even contributing to the art with some amazing kid related material, whether they are actually pedophiles, or not.

Just to make it even more clear than I already did, I am not suggesting you seek out any content that is illegal. Only telling you what I know about how that would happen. I only seek out legal content myself.

Hi ocdisnotone, I don't believe the Australian law on child pornography specifies where or how the material is obtained. So there is scope within the law for images that were obtained from legal adult sites (such as pornhub) to meet the definition of child pornography.

Yikes, that does sound a bit drastic! I'd suggest that you need to find a better way to deal with your anxiety/OCD before you go looking for more porn (of any type). Otherwise you may end up having to buy a lot of hard drives!

ocdisnotme wrote:how do you get child porn? file sharing? is it that easy to get thru google? does it cost money?

It would be inappropriate for anyone to answer these questions here as it could be seen to be giving instructions on how to obtain child porn and break the law. It sounds as though what you really want to ask is how to avoid getting child porn and coming under the eye of the law. I would suggest that the Australian police are not going to come knocking on your door if you accidentally download the occasional pornographic image that depicts people of not-quite-legal-age. They have bigger fish to fry. But of course the best way to avoid getting caught doing the wrong thing is to not break the law in the first place.

ocdisnotme wrote:also can I get arrested without a hard drive ?

Your internet service provider can give the police data showing which sites you accessed and which images you downloaded. Some people think they are anonymous by using VPNs and proxy servers, but there have been cases where the owners of the proxy servers have simply handed over the data to the police. So smashing your hard drive is not necessarily an effective solution, and it may even count as an attempt to destroy evidence. Perhaps it was effective for you though, because it helped you deal with your anxiety?

Ocdisnotone, have you thought about asking the police? A few times I've gone to the police station and just chatted to one of the cops to find out their perspective. They may offer you some tips on how to avoid breaking child pornography laws.

I'd also suggest posting in the OCD forum for support, rather than the Paraphilias forum. It sounds as if the real problem you need to deal with is your anxiety, not child pornography.

you are right platypus, it's more that I want to avoid being in trouble. I wouldn't search for CP intentionally. I did go on the ocd forum and didn't get my reassurance. I now know that usually cp is traded thru file sharing, chat rooms, news groups


I did smash the drive for nothing but I think without the drive, the cops can't do much, in Australia anyway. :|

Yeah, and it sounds like you have not done anything particularly wrong anyway. People look at porn all the time. We'd need a lot more police funding if the cops were expected to go after everyone who looked at pornographic images depicting teenagers. I don't want to say "you won't get caught" or "you aren't breaking the law" because I don't know those things for a fact. But if I worked for the police and was trying to catch people who used and traded child pornography, I don't think going after you would be worth my time. I would choose to collect evidence and make a case against people who more obviously or deliberately broke the laws, because I would want my work to pay off with a criminal conviction.

thanks for ur reply platypus.

it's this stupid ocd planting ideas in my head! it's so annoying. for the life off me I cannot remember seeing anything 'dodgy' and I only remember going on pornhub. I dunno why I am so scared?? maybe it's cause I got a virus on my comp, the comp technician cleaned it out and then I even smashed it! that virus triggered ocd thoughts. :(

I think that should be the final word on this particular subject in light of the rules of the site.

Good answers, thanks guys.
