Hi,

Any nude pictures of children are illegal and yes joining or looking at it on the web would be cause for a search warrant and arrest for possession of child pornography. Keep in mind that your computer tracks and keeps these sites which would make it possession if it is on your computer.

Child pornography is any picture of a child undressed or half dressed or any picture that could be construed as sexual in nature.

i SAW A WEB SITE THAT SAID NUDIST PICS WERE EXEMPT BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT SEXUALLY EXPLICIT. I GUESS THAT IS JUST A TRAP?

Hi,

Yes it is a trap and yes it can get you in trouble. Viewing pictures of naked children would be considered pornography and can get you in quite a bit of trouble.

Keep in mind these children are being exploited and abused and often spend years trying to adapt to the horrors of being exploited at such a young age.
