Age of Consent for Porno in the Netherlands?




Umm... How shall I put this?

Is there a risk that porn magazines and Videos that I buy from the shops in A'dam contain scenes with girls that are 16 or 17 years old? You see, I live in Sweden, and the age of consent here is 15 for intercourse, but 18 for featuring in porno. Therefore, if I went home from A'dam with videos of girls who were only 17, I could be arrested for smuggling kiddie-porn.

Needless to say, I wouldn like that to happen!

And I've heard that the age of consent in the Netherlands is 16 for video work, so I'm afraid that if I buy a film with young-looking girls, I might pick one with what would be considered kiddie-porn...

Help me out here, anyone? Age of consent for video work in the Netherlands?

Karl,

If it's a concern of yours, simply don't bring any videos back. You can't be that addicted to porn. I mean porn is porn, whether from the netherlands or the u.s.a or sweden.. just buy the tapes from your home land... it's all the same unless you are looking for the illegal stuff..like kiddie porn. Also, if you do indeed have a kiddie fetish you should be locked up and raped analy for the rest of your life. If you are transporting tapes of girls under age, I hope you get caught. Give these girls a chance to grow up!.... then plow the life out of them : ) don't but such tapes.

Stan, this site would be so much better if the flammers and idoits would just go some where else. Karl, asked very politely if he could legally bring back home, tapes that were legally bought in Amsterdam. If requests such as this upset you maybe you should spend your time on a religious (or at least Republican) forum. For the life of me I do not understand why people hang out on a sex/RLD forum and then get upset when people ask questions about sex.
Maybe it's because this post is under politics and not the RLD section. And a child molester should be raped anally the rest of his life. Too many consenting adults out there to fuck with a child. Get a life.
Ditzler, he did not ask about fucking a child, he did not ask about getting videos of underage children. In fact he asked a question to make sure he only brought home what WAS LEGAL. And this forum is a place where questions about sex, smoking, drinking, porno, churches, etc can be found most anywhere.

You may want to spend your time at www.allchristiantalkallthetime.com where you may be more comfortable.
I find it a little ironic you have a link for christian talk and you are giving it out, especially while you are browsing this forum. Anyways, I doubt any one here is capable of giving actual legal advice dimwit. Can you? Are you a lawyer? So just to take this post serious is an exercise in futility, but if you must take everything so damn serious that is actually laughable maybe you should listen to your talk show posting.

Someone should tell the damn idiot to ask customs or contact the embassy of his country to find out the laws concerning porno. But did you or could you do that? No, I had to. You just spunked your load on your christian talk show station. And I'm sure this a legitimate post under the politics section as well. Yeah.

Ditzler, let me repeat. The poster asked a legitimate question so he would only be doing what was legal. He never asked about having sex with underage kids. That is something you brought into the discussion which says maybe a little more about the demons you are dealing with than the original poster. And you are right questions about medicine, law, future exchange rates, future airline rates, etc should never be asked here. And if they are we should immediately jump on the poster and call them names. That is a much more mature way of dealing with them.

Hope you enjoy the new link I gave you
Karl,

As with all issues of importing things brought from Amsterdam (or anywhere), it's best to use your own judgement. The problem is that even if something is legal in your own country, you might have hassles at customs if the material is found by a customs guard. You're best placed to judge whether you might have problems with anything in particular as (as far as I'm aware) no-one else here is from Sweden. I've been there once, but obviously this doesn't really qualify me to comment!

As ever, if you're not sure, don't take the risk. There is child porn available in Amsterdam, so you would need to check any video you bought all the way through to make sure that all the girls (and boys too) were of legal age)

Guest: I think 'www.allchristiantalkallthetime.com ' is a spoof URL. Still, keep up the good work, eh?

Anyway, as has been mentioned, you kind of chose the wrong thread to post this in. 'Politics' is ring-fenced so that idiots (myself included) can start arguments and make frivolous, unsupported statements. 'Red Light Distric' would have been more helpful and appropriate.

Have fun,

Dazzla.
that the "progressive" attitude towards sex has given Amsterdam the title of "Child Porn Capital"....I am also not terribly convinced that life is that great for the hookers either....
Well, the dutch would say that (as with everything else) no more of it goes on there than anywhere else, they just like to keep it above ground so they can keep an eye on it. And you're currently on the web, just a few clicks away from illegal pornography.

The main frictive issue is the Dutch lower age of consent for sex and pornography than the UK, Scandinavia and the US, so what would be considered legal there would be considered child porn here (I know it's hysterical but here you are put on the sex offender's register if a pornographic video on your possesion features men or women aged 17).

I'm convinced that there's a thriving underage porn industry in every major city in Europe, the US, most of the far East - though the internet has eroded the market for 'porn rings' but in Amsterdam the surface is larger and the roots shallower.

And I'm not entirely convinced that people should be jailed for looking at pictures of naked 15 year olds.
Dazzler, I acquiesce. The Dutch maintain control by their ability to take off their "blinders" and see the world how it really is.

I also believe porn flourishes in numerous cities across the globe. All one needs is a laptop, digital camera, webpage, and an international banking account. I guess the real question is this......Does anyone NOT have these four ingredients??

kdog...maybe you should consider "unionizing" the working girls to ensure their best interests. And when did Amsterdam get the "Child Porn Capital" status? I must have missed that episode of 60 Minutes. From what I hear, central and eastern Europe is much more "child porn" friendly so to speak.
Oh, yeah. Forgot about the 'working girls are abused in holland too' thing.

If you really want to know about conditions for sex industry workers in Amsterdam and the Netherlands, you should pay a visit to Marishka in the Prostitution Information Centre in Ouderskersplein (next to the last kamer before Centraal Station end of OZ Voorburgwal). There are tons of books, leaflets and resources as used by the girls who work in the RLD. Marishka is also happy to talk about anything you care to bring up.

Prostitution in the Netherlands is unionised and sex workers are invited to register with the Chamber of Commerce and pay taxes like everyone else. The owners of the kamers usually live above the rooms with their families and do not have any relationship with the girls renting the kamer other than a business one. A woman working the kamers in De Wallen can make 1000EUR and upwards on a single shift, making them some of the best paid 'manual' workers in the world.
There is a Union for hookers and and Amsterdam does have that reputation as a Child Porn capital...I would contend that this is because it's "above ground" where you can keep your eye on it...which Dazzler thinks is a good thing...
Isn't it Ironic? I ask a question as to the RISK of videos that I buy in A'dam could contain girls 16 or 17, so that I could make sure to avoid them - and I get suspected for wanting to buy them... When I do NOT want to buy them...

Here's the deal: I work at an adult video store here in Sweden, and can buy pretty much ALL the videos published by the major European and American distributors. One such distributor is AVN - Adult Video Netherlands, who have a series called "seventeen", catering to the audience who look for young-looking girls. Of course, all girls in these videos are 18 years or older - they even state so specifically on the boxes, with reference to specific legal clauses.
Now, if I were to buy other videos in the Netherlends - in this young-looking-girl genre - I want to be damn sure that the girls are only that: Young-LOOKING! I really do not want to support abusers financially.

I am looking for smaller video producers, who have not yet made it into the select few who have large international distributors. I am looking for amateur stuff, which always has an audience. I am NOT looking for kiddie porn - if I were I would look on the internet, not in adult video stores!

Ok... Now, to the original question: What is the age of consent for pornographic video work in the Netherlands? Does anyone on this forum know?

Regards
//Karl W
kdog...I just feel like all the girls and kiddie porn stars would enjoy much better union representation with you at the helm. Maybe you can help them out. I have faith in you kdog....

KarlW...you ask a very good question. I don't know the answer, but someone posted the notion of asking customs or the embassy. Sounds like a pretty good idea. I dunno. Maybe even ask a lawyer in the Netherlands. I know all these ideas sound really far fetched......but......if you REALLY want to know I would ask a LAWYER at the EMBASSY. I know I would take their word over an opinion here.......
all you got is a little sarcasm. i suspect you stay away from topic you nothing about...you kinda stepped into the jestful comment about unionizing hookers...But the interest of children that are sexually exploited by dirtbags the world over, would certainly be better represented by a square, uptight conservative like myself rather than a cool, hip, open minded progressive like yourself. I do agree....
Timely response kdog. It only took you six days to respond. LOL ; )

I don't know. Maybe untimely sarcasm is better??? But I did take a stab at the question as truthfully as I could. I would imagine the advice of asking a lawyer at the embassy would be the safest means to find out the legal ramifications of a matter. What do you think? Do you think a lawyer at the embassy might have an answer for this question?
Obviously. Uptight people make excellent managers and politicians.

Jesus...

Karl, to the original question: if these voideos are for business use, would it not be better to buy in bulk and form your own country. That way if they are illegal, you can send them back on approval.



Has anyone else realised how tiwsted and depraved this is?
