Virtual nonsense

What could possibly go wrong?

Two sex therapists have sparked outrage in the Netherlands by calling for 'virtual' child porn to be legalised to relieve the urges of paedophiles.

Amsterdam hospital sexologists Rik van Lunsen and Erik van Beek claim allowing perverts to view drawings or computer-generated images of children would 'regulate their desires'.

The Netherlands outlawed all sexual representation of children in 2002 as technology made imaginary images too realistic.

Ugh. Just too creepy to take seriously, but too possible to ignore. "Regulate their desires" indeed. Stupidity squared.

All kidding aside, what do you propose doing with pedophiles? I assume no one chooses to be a pedophile. Would you simply jail them for life? Castrate them?

I have no good answer, so I won't dismiss the virtual porn idea simply because it's creepy.
