Hello. Thanks for visiting our evolutionary philosophy of human sexuality pages. We are currently researching good quality sites relating to our biological and cultural sexual evolution - as a way of collecting and presenting the most important / latest knowledge and research.
Below you will find summaries of articles & websites on Child & Preteen Models, i.e. on the evolution of beauty, child & preteen sexuality, development, psychology, education & protection, fashion, advertising, modeling agencies & services, photography, nudity, child exploitation, pedophilia, child pornography, the internet and the law.
Compared with other search terms, 'preteen model' gets a high number of searches (which suggests that people find preteens attractive - regardless of their motives). It is difficult to believe there is such a demand for preteen models in the advertising industry that it warrants such a high number of searches. We assume that 'preteen' is a 'safer' search for pedophiles - rather than 'child porn' (18,143).
The top ten related searches are;
preteen models (30,079), preteen model (19,861), models nude preteen (2,994), preteen model galleries (2,035), preteen nude models (1,785), nude preteen models (1,641), preteen models art (1,356), preteen thong models (1,016), preteen girl models (896), preteen models nude (846)
Child pornography is a significant problem on the internet. By having
a webpage up on 'Preteens' we in no way support pedophilia. We hope the
following articles & websites are informative and useful to preteen
parents and teachers (such an age can be a difficult time, especially in
our highly media / technology based global society).

The following article (including comments from readers) addresses very important problems faced by society. Is a nude body always sexual? What is art or pornography? Is the work depicting the beauty of children or exploitation? What are the rights of artists to show their work? The law of censorship?
From the website: 'Bill Henson is a contemporary artist whose work is held in the collections of the National Gallery in Canberra, the Guggenheim Museum and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.
Last week (May 2008), Henson's reputation took something of a battering, as New South Wales police and detectives from the Child Protection and Sex Crimes Unit, acting on a complaint from an anti-child abuse campaigner, confiscated 20 of his photographs from the Roslyn Oxley 9 Gallery in Sydney.
The matter is currently under investigation, and police have indicated that child pornography charges may be bought against either the artist or the gallery, over images of a 13-year-old girl in a "sexual context".
For the record, the teenager is naked. She is not engaging in any form of sexual activity. Just undressed. Were these images sexualised, there might be cause for complaint. They are not: as so often in Henson's work, the youths appear to be engaged in some kind of private ritual, outside of society and even time. But the depiction is not carnal, nor in any sense gynaecological. And over two millennia of Western art attests to the principle that the nude - of whatever age - is not obscene per se. On the contrary, it's a legitimate and accepted field of artistic representation.'
From their website: 'If you are serious about helping your child succeed in modeling or acting ... New Faces Models & Talent interactive talent portfolios can help get you exposure. Top modeling agencies, talent agencies, booking agents, casting directors, film/video producers and advertising agencies are using the Internet to scout for talent. ... With over 14 Million hits per month and 9 years of leadership, New Faces is the only web site with a proven track record for launching child talent careers.
From their website: 'Childmodel.com provides online modeling portfolios to children ages birth to sixteen. Child models are needed everywhere, for commercials, magazines and movies. Several companies throughout the world use childmodel.com to find new child talent. The service is free to modeling agencies, casting directors and advertising companies so you can be sure that your child receives excellent exposure.

Child modeling refers to children posing for artistic works, photographs, and/or other media as a regular activity.
Artists have used children as models for countless works over the centuries. Child modeling has become a distinct activity because of the explosion of commercial media over the past several decades.
The visible success of child models who became media celebrities has led numerous children (and their parents) to pursue modeling as a part-time career. In practice, most modeling jobs go to children who have already worked as models and have developed a working relationship with a modeling agency.
Just the thought of summertime sends many females into a frenzy, worrying about getting back into last year's bathing suit. But what if that female is only 8 or 10 years old? Should girls this young really be concerned with the appearance of their bodies? Whether or not they should be, more and more prepubescent girls are concerned about their body image.
According to Vernisha Shepard, a psychotherapist and clinical coordinator for the eating disorders clinic at Texas Children's Hospital, the number of young girls who show an unhealthy concern over body image increases during the summer months. 'It is getting more and more common for young girls to begin to have concern regarding their bodies,' she says. 'Girls as young as 8 are now talking about their bodies and show a concern related to their weight and shape. When summer comes and people begin losing the layers of clothing, more attention is drawn to how we look. Young girls are learning this and basing their entire self worth on their bodies and beauty.'
A new bill in Congress designed to outlaw child sex websites would instead ban nearly all commercial photography of minors.
Rep. Mark Foley (R-Florida) announced the proposal would ban websites featuring controversial images of nude preteen children. 'These websites are nothing more than a fix for pedophiles,' Foley said.
Five legal scholars contacted by Wired News said that Foley's proposal ... is so broadly written that it would imperil perfectly innocent photography and videography of children and teenagers.
In addition to prohibiting commercial photography of anyone under 17 years old, their bill would make it a federal felony for stock photo houses like Corbis or Getty Images to license images of minors from their catalogs - a billion-dollar industry - or for news photographers to sell images of minors.

Jeff Pierson is a photographer who until recently, ran a business called Beautiful Super Models that charged $175 for portraits of aspiring models under 18.
In a federal indictment announced this week, U.S. Department of Justice accuses Pierson, 43, of being a child pornographer - even though even prosecutors acknowledge there's no evidence he has ever taken a single photograph of an unclothed minor.
Rather, they argue, his models struck poses that were illegally provocative. 'The images charged are not legitimate child modeling, but rather lascivious poses one would expect to see in an adult magazine,' Alice Martin, U.S. attorney for the northern district of Alabama, said in a statement.
Pierson's child pornography indictment arises out of an FBI and U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigation of so-called child modeling sites, which have been the subject of a series of critical congressional hearings and news reports in the last few years. An August article in The New York Times, for instance, called the modeling Web sites 'the latest trend in child exploitation.'

The operators of dozens of teen and preteen 'modeling sites' that critics say are nothing more than eye candy for pedophiles have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Alabama for allegedly trafficking in 'visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.'
The indictment charges Webe Web Corp. and its principals, Marc Evan Greenberg and Jeffrey Robert Libman, with 80 counts of conspiracy and interstate trafficking of the images of teen and preteen girls on dozens of Web sites operated by the company.
'The images charged are not legitimate child modeling, but rather lascivious poses one would expect to see in an adult magazine,' U.S. Attorney Alice H. Martin said, 'There are no semi-nude or nude images. The children are dressed in underwear, adult lingerie, high heels, etc., and placed in sexually suggestive poses which focus the viewer's attention on the genital or pubic area. Some are posed with facial expressions and in positions that suggest a willingness to engage in sexual activity.'
From the website: 'The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
found that one in five children age 10-17 who regularly use the Internet
have received a sexual solicitation while online. One in four were unwillingly
exposed to images of naked people or people having sex.
The National Coalition for the Protection of Children & Families believes it is important for people to be educated on Internet safety issues and ways to deal with inappropriate content and contact. Education and parental involvement is vital, but use of technology to monitor, block or filter content is extremely helpful.'

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
