11 Jenkins, P, Beyond Tolerance, 2003, New York: New York UP. The New Face of Child Pornography term. According to this general opinion, it can be defined as any representation where children12 are engaged, or appear to be engaged, in some kind of sexual act or situation: this is the definition which will be applied in this chapter. Child pornography is illegal in most Western countries. Its production, distribution and possession are considered to be serious crimes. Even though the legislation concerning child pornography may vary between countries, it is important to be aware of the fact that child pornography is always a violation of children’s rights, no matter what shape or form it takes.

Without wishing to perpetuate the myth that the ‘home’ is always a ‘safe’ place for women, it is arguable that a woman charging for a home sex show broadcast over the Internet, where the viewer does not (and cannot) touch her, does not run the same risk of immediate physical violence from customers that the woman selling sex ‘traditionally’ encounters. This is not to say that such websites are entirely without risk, or that physical violence is the ‘only’ sort of violence that may occur. 28 From Hughes’ perspective, although ICTs have indeed transformed the sex trade, these changes are not positive at all.

27 As can be seen, Article 19 attempts to prevent all types of abusive treatment and to create a secure environment in which children can develop. This is complemented by Article 34(c), which requires signatory states to enact legislation to protect children from the specific abuse caused by child pornography. This latter provision also strives to create an environment conducive to international co-operation within this area. The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography,28 which has recently been added to the Convention, furthers these attempts to control and combat child pornography.
