I came across someone who specialize in teen glamour (i.e. girls under 18 dressed in lingerie, bikini etc..) I am wondering what others think of it? Would you let you daughter pose in those pictures? Would you let you son look at those websites?

A site that "specializes in teen glamour (i.e. girls under 18 dressed in lingerie, bikini etc..)" is morally questionable at the least. I would not let my daughter pose for that photographer or give permission (because it would require my permission) for her pictures to appear on his website.

This does not mean a clothing catalog might not have a picture of a teenager in a bikini or in underwear--that can be done without an appeal to prurient interest (yes, there is a small percentage of men who are aroused by the sight of a the nipples of a four-year-old of either gender, but we aren't talking about those guys).

The whole point of "glamour" is not just to illustrate a pretty face, the ultimate point of glamour is an appeal to prurient interest. That appeal isn't so much a matter of dress or even pose, but a matter of the suggestion or implication of sexual availability.

When you're implying sexual availability using someone your society has made taboo to sexual availability, then you're over the edge.

Immoral and should not be allowed.
I work with young people and they are very impressionable, they see Pop Stars flaunting and feel that is the norm. We have a perfect example now her in the UK, Jimmy Saville, He is prolific and was allowed to get away with it.

I feel it is our responsibility as the Adult to steer them away until they are of an age when they have the tools and skills to make the right choice. These kind of pictures should not be allowed. A bra is a bra, it doesn't need suggestive posing to sell it. The said item has a purpose and that is to support.

I could go on but will leave it at that. It is hard work trying to educate young people when they are bombarded with this kind of stuff.

I think you'd be treading in some very dangerous waters. There's no way I'd allow my daughters to do something like that. That said, I'm sure there are many girls that would be willing to for the attention and money. So sad.

And another thing, just to clear up something, a pedophile is a person that is attracted to pre-pubescent children, not teens.
