'Nude photos of youngsters typical of family albums' are pornographic

(Bowles et al., 1998: 5--6). In similar cases throughout America, persons
who are found to have family snapshots of naked kids are frequently detained for
the possession and production of child pornography (Kincaid, 2000). The warmed-

Different nakedness from the sexual feeds the hysteria around the debates over
'pornographic' word pictures of children. This area serves as a useful example of the
instability around contexts in which nakedness could be viewed as independent from the
Child pornography -- an issue which, according to Laura Kipnis, is so
emotionally charged that it has become difcult to approach it rationally (Kipnis,

(ECPAT, 1996: 4). For the Australian Ofce of Film and Literature Classication,
child pornography is characterized in the following scheme: (1) texts including
(hardcore); (2) photographs of naked models under 16 which have sexual over-
tones such as sexually suggestive poses; (3) texts devoted in the main to naked
children in a non sexual context. Such recent determinations of what makes up
child pornography concentrate on the textual image and are not concerned with
the picture as a record of the sexual abuse involved in their own production. In that
Esteem, child pornography is normally dened through its reading rather than its
production, and most laws of western states governing the criminality of
child pornography possession, viewing and distribution determines the interpre-

While it's certainly true the practice of recording sexual abuse of
record of a naked child can now be qualified as obscene because it is under-
stood to sexualize the child. For https://s3.amazonaws.com//viva-naturist/nude-in-beach.html , in a case in California, authorities were
called in by a photo programmer when he found 'family snaps' of an 8-year-
old boy and a 6-year old girl together in the bathroom eating sausages. What alarmed
the programmer and caused the police to contemplate the photographs as 'indecent' and
'degenerate' were the sausages, despite the fact they weren't, as James Kincaid
puts it, 'being licked, stroked or fit' (Kincaid, 2000). In https://s3.amazonaws.com//viva-naturist/young-nudist-photos.html

Oberlin, Ohio. The laboratory contacted the local police, who discovered the photographs 'over the line' and
Detained the mom for, among other things, snapping in the same frame with her daughter a

These are two cases in which the record of youth nakedness under the gaze
of the parents was deemed to be obscene through processes of sexualization or,

What exactly is occurring here is https://s3.amazonaws.com//viva-naturist/group-sex-on-the-beach.html between the frame in which the
parental gaze at the nude child (and its lmic record) is presumed harmless, and
the framework in which nakedness is seen as sexual. As with all textual interpretations,
the meaning resides in the reading. In Tony Bennett's post structuralist formu-
lation of reception theory, the meaning isn't held by the text, but actively
Created in the action of reading, and in the relationship between the text and the
reader. For Bennett, the productive activation of significance is governed by the
'reading foundation' or the 'set of intersecting discourses which productively
activate a given body of texts and the relations between them in a specic manner'
