You can look but you can’t touch….or can you?
Many of us dream of having the perfect children born and nurtured in enviable settings, in the house with the white Pickett fence growing up to be a great success. Often this is not the case, our children take up a profession that we did not want them to or worse still they develop a sexual preference that will not carry on the nuclear family tradition. As trying as this outlook maybe it is more bearable than what has become a voyeuristic and exploitative world technology and business expansion has created over the years. This is a world where women have the option of joining lucrative industries where they have sex and other activities for money, the traditional role we once knew of as the prostitute bent over a car offering sexual services for cash in hand is soon to be a thing of the past. The naïve girl who degrades herself for the taste of the highlife is of a different calibre these days apparently she purposes ‘I know what I signed up for’, ‘I love sex why not get paid for it?’ ‘My partner supports what I do’ is now predator to the legal sexual industries widely advertised and always recruiting. But if you look closely behind the image broadcasted by these industries of young make-up laden girls you see a trance like stare screaming ‘help me’, ‘I didn’t know it was going to be like this’ you often will find the same masquered girl who if not for the ‘innovation’ of technology would still be trailing the streets at ungodly hours looking for that middle class client who will be the difference between coming down and the next drug fix.
If we imagine the socio-economic history of one of these girls we often will see the girl who had the best start in life, hopes and dreams where did all go wrong? No its best not to answer that question as a producer of an xxx movie or porn viewer all we care about is the girl standing in front of us and what she has to offer, how far she is willing to go to induce pleasure for the attentive audience. It is not just those within the industry who fail to acknowledge so many little girls lost who walk into a studio and claim to love their job, everyday folk cannot get away from X-rated images, just open the Sun Newspaper and turn to the 3rd page everyone can read this paper and with the average reading age ability set at 8 years old it’s really painful to question who is exactly are there target audience? Those of us within the corporate world are too wrapped up in with the demands of working life to study and question the images we are bombarded with each day and the worst of all is the sexualisation of young girls craze. For centuries we have been told we must fight to illuminate the appearance of ageing and who is this for? Well it certainly isn’t for our best friend Lucy is it? No it is for men who have bought into this ideology and some might say this originates from pornographic images of young 18 ‘teen’ girls who are portrayed in a childlike manner. The porn industry may argue they are merely just playing on the biologically wiring of men as scientists claim they like to mate with young women as youth is a sign of fertility and attraction is based on the desire to procreate. As ever the technological world is always advancing and one has to fear what could be next to break the boundaries of voyeurism and bring sensuality to life from the comfort of a customer’s home.
