Do you think someone making sex in any literary or graphic form can never be prosecuted?

Like, in this case, the case of the Chester the Molester comic artist.

    Not in the US. What would they prosecute for?

      It can be prosecuted if it depicts children in America.

    What do you mean by 'making sex'?

    If you refer to DESCRIBING sexual activity, that is FAR different than ENGAGING in sexual activity.

    In the vintage Playboy (or maybe it was Hustler) magazines up to about 1984, the last I saw of Chester, the comic book character was only named that. The words 'child molester' were NEVER used, and the character was depicted as only having sexual contact, when he was - and it wasn't in every strip, they were jokes more than sex - with adult females.

    So, you gave a poor example. Outside of the US, any graphic depiction of underage cartoon characters is a crime. Under current US law, it is not - it is fantasy, not real. In the US, punishing what fiction one imagines and draws or writes is considered 'thought police' stuff and the society has decided it does not want to go that far.

    If it is something like Playboy and 50 Shades of Gray, they will never be prosecuted. If it is something extreme like pedophilia or the like, it may be brought up to the court.

    They should not be prosecuted. If you don't like it don't read or look at it.

      Even if their content is based on pedophilia?
