Where Can You See Schoolgirls Naked, Bound and Tortured? You'll Find Them On Yahoo!

(WASHINGTON) -- Yahoo!'s ``Schoolgirls in Bondage'' club is still available to anyone seeking photos of schoolgirls who are tied up and tortured, according to Patrick Trueman of American Family Association.
Though AFA and thousands of Yahoo! patrons have complained, Yahoo! continues to allow child pornography and obscenity on its servers available to all, children and adults, he said. One photo on this site, titled ``The Younger The Better,'' shows a young naked girl in chains with cigarette burns all over her body, engaged in what appears to be a forced sexual act. Some of the girls shown in this club seem to be minors. The ``Abducted Japanese Beauties'' photos show naked women groped, gagged and in pain. This club will fuel the worst desires of the worst element in society, he added.
Those looking for techniques on how to capture girls for torture and sexual molestation might be drawn to Yahoo!'s ``Chloroform Photo Central'' club, Trueman fears. Photos include the ``Kidnapped and Chloroformed'' series and one titled ``When Kelly modeled her skimpy bikini we knew she needed to get chloroformed.'' On Yahoo!'s ``Teen Bondage'' Club, one of the members posts this on the front page: ``attention victims, 38 year old harsh master seeks 13-24 year-old slave girl to travel with him.'' Should Yahoo! allow its clubs to be used for solicitation of minors for sexual purposes, Trueman asked. Photos on the club include ones titled ``cheerleader'' ``gagged,'' ``punished,'' ``tortured,'' and ``helpless.'' ``Do these clubs reflect the views of Yahoo!'s corporate executives? If not then why do the executives so willingly donate corporate resources to the perverted people who have such views?'' asked Trueman. Yahoo! has the technology to filter out these and similar sites but chooses not to use it. The company is violating federal child pornography and obscenity laws by allowing this material on their servers for their patrons, he said. ``Yahoo! should not be allowed to profit from the sexual exploitation of children and women,'' he added. Trueman is AFA's director of governmental affairs, and was chief of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Criminal Division, U.S. Department of Justice, from 1988 to 1992.
