The following is an excerpt from this article that points out just how misguided the perceptions are when it comes to who the perpetrators of sexual offenses are.

Minors coerced into sex for money, minors coerced to perform in pornographic content are part of our current world. But the preparators, in most cases, hide behind a familiar face. One study of 150 adult survivors, who indicated that they had appeared in sexual abuse material as children, found that 82% of abuse was organized by a direct family member, who either shot the content or facilitated others doing. Despite all the warnings about strange men lurking in vans, only 4% of the abuse occurred by strangers when the child was being victimized by one person; 2% when the child was abused by multiple people. The rest were biological fathers, stepfathers, acquaintances of the family, mothers, stepmothers, brothers, sisters, grandmas, aunts, uncles, and trusted members of the community such as clergy, police officers, teachers, counselors, and babysitters.

Instead of allowing the images to perpetuate online in order to catch passive viewers, why not get to the root of the problem?
