Sex and horror have always been inseparable for me. It is a common trap that I am happy to fall prey to. There is something irresistibly forbidden about a really effective horror film that simultaneously manages to arouse the viewer with whatever taboo is being depicted on the screen. Sadly there are precious few examples of movies that manage to succeed on both fronts.

The Ten Steps to Erotic Possession

A cartoon can land you in court, as happened to a man recently convicted of possessing non-photographic images — cartoons, drawings — of a sexual nature featuring children. Clearly child pornography, more accurately called child abuse images, represents horrendous crimes and should have no place in our society. Children are incapable of giving legal consent to sex or sexual posing for nude photographs, meaning each of such images is criminal and represents a crime scene itself. While nobody will disagree that they should be banned entirely, the justification for criminalising the possession of drawn or computer-generated images that involve no real children is not so clear.
