Abstract : This study seeks to explore the world of child pornography. Despite a wealth of literature on the topics of pornography and child sexual abuse, very little information exists on the specific subject of child pornography. The deleterious effects of child pornography on its victims is well known within the medical and social work fields. Additionally, operating as a separate subculture, the world of child pornography has its own organizations and publications that help to perpetuate the industry and the facts, there is not a large amount of research n the subject. Therefore, this study will shed light on this neglected area.
