Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am sorry to hear about this issue- which is an ever increasing problem in today society with people having access to this type of pornography on the internet.
You are correct that downloading child or adolescent pornography is a Federal Crime as follows:
In the 1990s, lawmakers twice passed legislation targeting child porn online. The first was the Child
Pornography Prevention Act (CPPA) of 1996, designed both to close loopholes in existing federal child pornography law and address new technological issues by the following:
The Protection of Children from Sexual Predators Act of 1998 contains further anti-child porn provisions.
The best thing to do at this point is to get help and if your husband is willing to do so, that is a good sign.
This would involve seeing a therapist who specializes in issues related to sexual acting out and pornography addiction.
Detail on this can be found here:
If you send me your Zip Code- I will be happy to check for qualified Experts who can help you with this.
Additionally, you may want to seek legal advise about this from one of the Justanswer Legal Experts where you can get a botXXXXX XXXXXne idea of the potential legal issues.
I will say that these issues are so rampant that the likelihood of the Fed's showing up at your door is unlikely unless your husband has been downloading an immense amount of pornography over a long period of time.

49201. I have so many questions I don't know where to start
I've read that teen porn is the most downloaded porn. Most men have some sort of teen fantasy but I compare it to the rape fantasy. I don't seek out video's of women being raped. I don't want to be raped but I sometimes fantasize about it.
Is this comparable?
I understand and this is going to take some time and that his why you need help from an Expert.
Hold just a second and I will check resources in your community.
I will respond to your other question in a second.
The following link will provide the listings of Experts that deal with Sex related issues. I would select someone in Ann Arbor as this is probably closest to you and with the U of M you get good quality - All are capable of helping with these issues.
The other question regarding teenage porn- you are most likely correct about the statistics of men being attracted to this population.
Fantasies about rape are common and have to deal with desire to be controlled and dominated- albeit
most often - a fantasy and not a desire to be raped as is typically thought of.
Here is the link for the Experts in Michigan- Ann Arbor is at the top:
I don't see a link

How much of an obligation do I have to turn him in? It's not horrible child porn (that sounds so stupid) but I guess what I'm trying to say is it's not 9 yr old's. Is it all the same anyway? Am I just one of those stupid women making excuses because it makes me feel better?
