Child Nudity & Sex Trafficking Books
Amazon.com is selling books featuring collections of Jock Sturges, Sally Mann, and David Hamilton photography.
These publications contain numerous images that many, including experts on child sexual exploitation, consider akin to child pornography, or at the minimum, content that eroticizes children.
These same publications are replete with pictures of nude prepubescent and adolescent children—many of which display their pubic areas or genitals. These are not images reminiscent of a family photo album of children at bath time but are haunting displays of provocative child nudity.
While these publications (and films) are widely available and have been in circulation for many years, such material is unfit for sale by any reputable retailer. Retailers like Amazon should strive to prevent the dissemination of material that gratifies perverse sexual interest in children, not cater to it.
Last year, Walmart.com was also selling Jock Sturges publications, but upon receiving a letter on the matter from us, took swift action and removed his books from their online store within 24 hours – you can thank Walmart for removing these publications here.
We ask that Amazon act responsibly and do the same.
Here are examples of how-to books for becoming a sex trafficker.
