Smart phone sexting for minors gets prosecuted again, in Maryland; Canadian law doesn't need images for c.p. prosecution



Here’s another “sexting” case, reported in “The Lily”.

A teenage girl produces her own porn of an incident with a boyfriend, and texts it to her friends.  She is the actor, so there is no victim.

Yet, she still could be charged with child pornography in many states. This case occurred in Maryland.

I still wonder if all the gay YouTube videos, those from overseas, are “legal”.  In some countries it’s probably not certain that the actors were checked for age 18.

And another thing, in many countries, narratives can be considered child pornography even without images or videos (with or without animation).  This is true even in Canada. Would the legal standard the description of explicit intimacy, or only intimacy that could produce arousal in the writer?
