"child pornography is one of the fastest growing online businesses generating approximately $US3 billion ($3.43 billion) each year"
This '$US3 billion' figure has no credibility and even if it was factual as at January 2008, (when it appeared in an opinion article by Bernadette McMenamin, CEO of Child Wise/ ECPAT in Australia, with citing a source), then it could be regarded as 'good news' because it would mean (based on previously promulgated 'statistics') that there had been no increase at all in the five years to 2008, therefore 'child pornography' could not be one of the fastest growing online businesses.
The '$US3 billion' figure has been promulgated far and wide since at least mid 2003, when Utah-based Jerry Ropelato commenced publishing it, without citing a source, on his web site InternetFilterReview.com, which has since become part of his TopTenReviews.com. According to Texas-based Red Orbit News (5 Nov 2006) Ropelato was formerly chief operating officer of ContentWatch, a Salt Lake City-based developer of Internet filtering and virus protection software. He is also known locally as a speaker and presenter on Internet safety issues, and as a crusader against online pornography.
The fastest growing online businesses claim originated with the U.S. NCMEC, in August 2005, which based its claim on the then two-year old US$3 billion 'statistic' promulgated by Ropelato. (The U.S. NCMEC has a long history of promulgating exaggerated/false statistics.)
The origins and history of '$US3 billion' and 'fastest growing' claims is outlined below.

"child pornography is a $20 billion industry worldwide"
This out-of-date/discredited $20 billion 'statistic' was given new life in March 2008 when it appeared in Australian media reports as a result of a joint media release between the Australian Federal Police and Microsoft. The statistic was disowned in April 2006 by the organisations to which it had been, and still is being, attributed (i.e. the FBI and Unicef).
The history of this number is outlined below.

Booming Cross-Border Business
According to a frequently mentioned statistic, the child pornography industry generates $50 billion every year; other sources speak of a $20 billion industry. In other words, the CAM industry is not a select club of old perverts roaming the web in the privacy of their musty apartment—it’s a multibillion-dollar business of global magnitude, with thriving demand and supply.

Half of all child porn now originates in America. The profits are massive. Estimated porn profits in 2006 exceed combined revenues of Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Apple, Netflix and EarthLink ranging from $3-$20 billion annually.

Remember their delusional mythology about magical pictures?
More than 4 million Web sites worldwide show images of children being sexually exploited, said the U.N. investigator on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography, Najat M'jid Maalla.
Maalla urged international cooperation to stop the child pornography industry, which she estimated to be worth between $3 billion and $20 billion. She recommended countries share information on sites containing child pornography in order to block them faster.

“These cases involve real-life abuse and assault of children. Every time an image is viewed, it’s like the assault happened again,” said Andrew M. McLees, special agent in charge of the Newark office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.

Our department will continue to investigate and prosecute anyone who possesses or disseminates child pornography.”

"It's now clear [anti-trafficking groups] used fake data to deceive the media and lie to Congress," the story charges. "And it was all done to score free publicity and a wealth of public funding."
What's the meat behind those claims? The story details how the Women's Funding Network commissioned a study from a political consulting group run by Beth Schapiro, which devised a totally unscientific method for determining how many online classified ads depicted children. It entailed having a group of adults guess, by looking at a picture in an ad, how old the person depicted was, and then doing it again over time to fuel the charge of explosive growth. Experts interviewed by City Pages point out that this is ridiculous from a methodological point of view — among the many criticisms, there's no way of knowing how old someone is from a picture, there's no way of knowing when the picture was taken, and there's no way of knowing if the picture is even of someone behind the advertised service.
The study, which was funded with public money, was subsequently uncritically picked up nationwide in headlines trumpeting a massive rise in the trafficking of children.
Nevertheless, Dr. Hernandez privately
distributed his study widely, without peer review or any
other oversight, and thus bypassed normal opportunities for
either scientific validation or refutation by experts in the field
of sexual offender diagnosis and treatment. He distributed his
study to a limited but very receptive audience nationally
(and later internationally, specifically Great Britain), including
law enforcement officials and agencies, the Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and state
and federal prosecutors.
But it was the policy makers who especially welcomed the

From both a clinical and an actuarial statistical perspective, an early retrospective study conducted at a Federal Civil Commitment Facility in Butner, North Carolina, inferred an association between accessing child pornography and hands-on sexual offending.3 That study has been criticized regarding its methodology and lack of scientific rigor.4 More recent prospective data have questioned the contention that there is a correlation between accessing child pornography and hands-on offending.5 For example, one such study found that less than one percent of 231 men who had viewed child pornography (but with no evidence of a prior hands-on sexual offense) had gone on to commit a hands-on sexual offense.6 From a purely statistical standpoint (all else being equal) individuals with no history of a hands-on sexual offense against a child, but who have accessed child pornography, are at low risk as a group of committing a hands-on sexual offense in the future.5

McKune provides a single citation to support its statement “that the recidivism
rate of untreated offenders has been estimated to be as high as 80%”: the U.S.
Dept. of Justice, Nat. Institute of Corrections, A Practitioner’s Guide to Treating
the Incarcerated Male Sex Offender xiii (1988). Justice Kennedy likely found that
reference in the amicus brief supporting Kansas filed by the Solicitor General,
then Ted Olson, as the SG’s brief also cites it for the claim that sex offenders
have this astonishingly high recidivism rate. This Practitioner’s Guide11 itself
provides but one source for the claim, an article published in 1986 in Psychology
Today, a mass market magazine aimed at a lay audience. That article has this
sentence: “Most untreated sex offenders released from prison go on to commit more
offenses– indeed, as many as 80% do.” But the sentence is a bare assertion: the
article contains no supporting reference for it. But perhaps the author was merely
offering an estimate based on his training and expertise. The problem there is
that he had little of either.
He is a counselor, not a scholar of sex crimes or re-offense rates, and the cited
article is not about recidivism statistics. It’s about a counseling program for
sex offenders he then ran in an Oregon prison. His unsupported assertion about the
recidivism rate for untreated sex offenders was offered to contrast with his equally
unsupported assertion about the lower recidivism rate for those who complete his

"40 per cent of arrested child pornography possessors sexually abused children"
According to an opinion article by Bernadette McMenamin, CEO of Child Wise (ECPAT
in Australia), published in the The Australian on 8 January 2008: "In 2005 the
United States National Center for Missing and Exploited Children revealed that
40 per cent of arrested child pornography possessors sexually abused children."
The 40% number was in a report distributed by the NCMEC in 2005 and the percentage
concerned research findings in relation to a total of 429 cases during the 12 months
beginning 1 July 2000. However, insofar as the phrasing of the assertion quoted
above appears to imply that 40% of persons arrested for possession of child
pornography were found to have sexually abused children, it does not accurately
reflect the research findings.

More than 1 million are children. Nearly one-quarter are bought and sold as sex
slaves. Only 1-in-100 victims of human trafficking is ever rescued. It’s a booming
business. High profits and low risk make human trafficking one of the fastest-growing
and most lucrative crimes on the planet; the U.N. recently estimated that trafficking
nets $150 billion a year.

It's a pretty good summary of the standard narrative on sex-trafficking these days: it's everywhere, all the time, and we don't even know it; the only way to combat it is to keep throwing cops and money and laws at it; and anyone who questions any of this is only aiding the evildoers. It's almost impossible to argue with people who buy this narrative, because the more evidence you present challenging sex trafficking's pervasiveness, the more they see proof that sex trafficking is so under the radar we need to throw more cops and money and laws at it.

We regretfully want to inform everyone the results of a year long investigation by our highly experienced investigative unit, that Chong Kim whom has claimed to be a survivor of human trafficking is not what she claims to be.
After thorough investigation into her story, people, records and places, as well as, many interviews with producers, publishers and people from organizations, we found no truth to her story. In fact, we found a lot of fraud, lies, and most horrifically capitalizing and making money on an issue where so many people are suffering from.
"The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon" was a series of highly controversial newspaper articles on child prostitution that appeared in the Pall Mall Gazette in July 1885.
Written by crusading editor W.T. Stead, the series was a tour de force of Victorian journalism. With sensational crossheads, such as "The Violation of Virgins" and "Strapping Girls Down", the Maiden Tribute threw respectable Victorians into a state of moral panic, and achieved, as a consequence, the implementation of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885, which raised the age of consent for girls from 13 to 16, and also re-criminalised homosexual acts.

Therefore, as these graphic sexual images populate and spread, we can unfortunately predict there will be more child sexual abuse.
Could making child pornography legal lead to lower rates of child sex abuse? It could well do, according to a new study by Milton Diamond, from the University of Hawaii, and colleagues.
Results from the Czech Republic showed, as seen everywhere else studied (Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Sweden, USA), that rape and other sex crimes have not increased following the legalization and wide availability of pornography. And most significantly, the incidence of child sex abuse has fallen considerably since 1989, when child pornography became readily accessible – a phenomenon also seen in Denmark and Japan. Their findings are published online today in Springer’s journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.
The findings support the theory that potential sexual offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex crimes against children
Remember when they lied and said it's pathological to be attracted to JBs?https://forensicpsychologist.blogspot.f ... three.html
One concern is that the accessibility of online CP has caused increases in child
sexual abuse. Some research suggests that CP may trigger sexual abuse by activating
and validating sexual urges in CP viewers that were previously suppressed or con-
trolled (Beech et al., 2008; Quayle & Taylor, 2003; Wilson & Jones, 2008). There is no
evidence of increasing abuse in the United States, however. In fact, rates of child sexual
abuse have declined substantially since the mid-1990s, a time period that corresponds
to the spread of CP online. Statistics from U.S. child protective service agencies show
that from 1992 to 2007, child sexual abuse declined 53% (Jones & Finkelhor, 2009),
including interfamilial abuse (Finkelhor & Jones, 2006). Evidence of this decline also
comes from victim self-report surveys and U.S. criminal justice system data (Finkelhor
& Jones, 2008; Finkelhor, Turner, Ormrod, & Hamby, 2010), as well as the child pro-
tective services data collection system. The fact that this trend is revealed in multiple
sources tends to undermine arguments that it is because of reduced reporting or changes
in investigatory or statistical procedures.

APA rejects "hebephilia," last standing of three novel sexual disorders
To hear government experts on the witness stand in civil detention trials in recent months, the novel diagnosis of "hebephilia" was a fait accompli, just awaiting its formal acceptance into the upcoming fifth edition of the influential Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
They were flat-out wrong.
In a stunning blow to psychology's burgeoning sex offender processing industry, the Board of Trustees of the American Psychiatric Association rejected the proposed diagnosis outright, not even relegating it to an appendix as meriting further study, its proponents' fall-back position.

In a subsequent study, Freund confirmed the normalcy of sexual arousal to
adolescents. His subjects were 48 young Czech soldiers, all presumed to be ‘‘normal’’
and heterosexual in orientation. He showed the men pictures of children (ages 4–10
years old), adolescents (ages 12–16), and adults (ages 17–36). As expected, most of the
heterosexual men were sexually aroused by photos of both adult and adolescent
females. They were not aroused by pictures of males of any age, and were aroused at an
intermediate level by pictures of children (Freund & Costell, 1970).
Remember when they lied about the harms of sex to JBs?https://books.google.ch/books?id=YqLr5z ... et&f=false
A new study of Bulgarian men has replicated a previous 2013 experiment on British men. In both studies, the same photographs of adolescent girls (Tanner stages 3-4) were shown to one group of men labelled as age 14-15, and a different set of men labelled as age 16-17. Subjects reported more sexual attraction when the photographs were labelled as 16-17. The researchers conclude:
[T]he consistent finding that the same photographs of younger females, but with different age labels, were assigned significantly different levels of attractiveness suggests that cognitive factors beyond biologically driven sexual attraction were involved in making these ratings. In all the three samples, apparently younger girls were rated as less attractive than older girls despite being the same photographs. We hypothesize that this difference reflects some self-censoring mechanism involved in making such judgments. This may involve a form of comparison between participants’ own sexual attraction to the individual girl and the likely social norms surrounding this judgment.
This finding has now been replicated across four samples, including one that is yet to be reported.
Remember when they lied about when full fertility is reached in females through deceptive misinterpretations of research?
The official view is that teens have sex only for bad reasons: because of enticing
media images, peer pressure, hormones, limited brains, and other misguided compulsions.
In such a climate, researchers who find teens expressing positive attitudes about
sex and their sexual experiences often feel compelled to slant their results in a
negative manner--and if they do not, media reports will.
For example, Web MD reported a University of California study of 619 teens, 275
of whom had intercourse or oral sex during their ninth or tenth grade years, under
the headline, "Teen sex may take emotional toll. Girls especially vulnerable to
negative emotional aftereffects." Web MD's headline and article were not fair
characterizations of the 18-month study published in the February 2007 pediatrics.
In fact, the study found teens aged 15 and 16 were quite positive about their sexual
experiences. Directly contradicting those who claim teen sex inexorably leads to
regret, depression, and even suicide, only 2 percent (among teens who had both oral
sex and intercourse) to 4 percent (for those who had only oral sex) said their
experiences had been entirely negative. In contrast, an astounding 61 percent (oral
sex), 86 percent (intercourse), and 96 percent (both) said at least one aspect of
the sex had been positive. Even though researchers gave teens only half as many
positive as negative options to choose from, 8 to 20 times more felt their experience
had been entirely positive. Most reported both positive experiences (led by pleasure,
feeling good about oneself, and making one's relationship better) and negative ones
(led by much lower levels of feeling used, feeling bad about oneself, and feeling
Web MD's headline, then, should have been "Teenagers generally report positive
experiences from sex." That most sexually active teens could think of at least
one negative consequence, as defined by the researchers, not only failed to negate
their generally positive reactions, it indicated a healthy ability to recognize the
complexity of sexual experience. What sexually active adult has not experienced some
bad results (remember the famous "Hite Report" of yore?)?
Female sexual development:
Full fertility is usually reached within 2 years of menarche, between 14 and 15 years of age on average.
But many of the initial cycles are associated with failure of ovulation of a mature egg and so the periods may be irregular for a year or so and fertility is low for about one to two years before full reproductive competence is reached
Remember when they lied about the risks of pregnancy to adolescents?http://www.mamaye.org/en/evidence/mater ... -countries
Adult breast contour with projection of papilla only (mean age 14.5 years).
Adult with spread to medial thigh but not up linea alba (mean age 14.6 years).
Remember when they said the children of adolescents had learning disabilities and so on?http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/content/154/3/212.full
In most regions, the age distribution of maternal mortality follows a J-shaped curve, with a slightly increased risk of death in adolescents as compared to women between 20 and 24 years old
In addition, adolescents in some countries were found to be at lower risk of death than women in their early 20s and even than women in all other age groups
In contrast to the overall results, the MMR for 15-19 year-olds in Tanzania was the same as for women aged 20-24, and much lower than for women aged 25 and over, indicating that there is no excess risk of maternal death associated with adolescent pregnancy.
when maternal education, marital status, poverty level, and race are controlled, the detrimental effects [on the cognitive functioning of the children of teenage mothers] disappear and even some protective effects are observed. Hence, the increased risk for educational problems and disabilities among children of teenage mothers is attributed not to the effect of young age but to the confounding influences of associated sociodemographic factors. In contrast to teen age, older maternal age has an adverse effect on a child's educational outcome regardless of whether other factors are controlled for or not.
Literally nothing they say is ever true.
