Should underage fashion models ( ie 15- 19 yrs ) be posing topless or nude for European Fashion Magazines such as Vogue ....( Italian , French etc )

If so - then is is hypocritical for such magazines to be sold in N America -when our own laws prohibit such ?

Our laws don't prohibit this at all, but our marketing; i.e. the stores which sell the magazines and the advertisers which buy the pages in them don't generally approve of such content as the American people don't generally approve of such content. there is nothing in US law which prohibits the photographing of underage models nude as long as it is not deamed to be explicitly sexual, ask Joque Sturges who did alot of his shoots (now published in books, which are sometimes found in Borders book stores until some mother catches her 14 son leafing through them in a corner and not wanting to stand up, and complains to the manager....) in nudist camps/beaches in California.......and had materials seized but there was never any legal action taken......EVER......because there are no laws and no real precidents.......still, I'm not ready to be the one to pioneer the field....

Because they're sexually confused and it turns them on.

Well I dont know Jock Sturges to ask him such ...... but If what you are saying is true then what say would be the  difference between say his work and a $6.99  magazine availabe at your corner store - that would be filled with  underage models ,all nude , and all all posed in "non sexual poses " ie standing ... Following your argument - such a magazine  would be legal ?

I believe the wording of the law says something about the usage\intent of the photo....
There are naked baby pictures everywhere...but if someone took naked baby pictures for the intent of selling them for a sexual purpose...then, I believe, it's illegal....

I knew I spelled that wrong... I need a spell checker!!!

and I was joking... sorry smile

But, I bet if someone in my city complained really loud. They could get all European fashion mags pulled off the shelves here....

And there would be sermons in churchs about how there was pornography in Vogue... (cuz we jump off the deep end)

it would be perfectly legal, and, ironically, I believe purchaseable by teens/children under the age of 18 (to do who knows what with), but I don't think that they would find any advertisers to place ads in said magazine for only US publication, so it would probably cost at least $20-$40, and only run a once, a few times, or once a year, which makes it a whole lot more like a book, and less like a magazine/periodical

again, I may be slightly wrong on this.....

I did however do a research project in school on Sally Mann, another photographer of "questionable subject matter" some nude or smi-nude photos of her children, sometimes male and female together, ages young child through young teen, and also book of non-explicit, but sometimes suggestive photos named "At Twelve" The redeeming factor in both cases is the artistry involved, whether real or no is determined by the viewer; and the fact that Sturges used 4x5 or 8x10 viewcamera's and Mann often used viewcameras and often even earlier technology of hand-mixed & hand/applied callotype (? I think this is right) process photography on glass plates rather than film.

If a no-tallent pedofile shoots nude "spreads" of little girls and boys with the new Digital Rebel he bought at BestBuy, then it is a different story altogether, and please do not think that I condone any of it. Certainly none of it which is illegal, and also, I wouldn't consider shooting any of it which is legal, and even if it is legal and tastfully shot by someone else, I would feel funny leafing through it in the company of non-artists/photographers.

So it is more than being none sexual , the work has to have "artistic "merit and be tasteful .....

Regarding the concept of aritistic merit , historically arent some of the greatest artists also the ones who shocked people the most ( at the time ) ?

Agreed advertising is needed to keep the cost of magazines down -but some more expensive magazines can survive without it or with little of it ......

the artistry makes it more acceptable, but really should have no legal weight one way or another, it just suggests that the photographer was interested at least in-part in the process/technique rather than just looking at nude kids all day.......

non-sexual/suggestive/partial nudity/whatever u want to call it, i dont think it's right. i dont find it offensive, i just think under aged girls should keep their bits to themselves til they are adults. artistic or not ppl should respect that its a child/teen. would u want ur daughter/sister/neice to appear nude in a fashion magazine for the world to see?

firstly, i dont think youl find 19 years old to be 'underage'....well not in any 'free' society i know of anyway.

what's hypocritical is that young 19 yr old girls can give blow-jobs to [drunk] complete strangers live on stage in front of hundreds of cheering guys at parties during spring break (not that theres anything wrong with that ofcourse), and yet any person, regardless of age, apparently cant be free to take part in a creative and beautiful, non-sexual image - in this case created for probably one of the top magazines in the world by one of the top photographers in the world, just incase credibitly comes into it - as they choose when they choose, and with the permission of their guardian or parent.

i think the main problem is people with nothing better to do making up laws in their head just coz they think it should be that way, and then trying to force them on other people. u have enough stupid, out-dated and overly conservative laws in your country already. pls dont encourage any more.

The problem is that AMERICA is sexually repressed!  Europe's underage is different than ours!  Most of the European Nations Underage is UNDER 16.  Some countries 14. 

My aunt was married when she was 14 here in the USA.  Does that make her husband a pedofile?  They've been happily married for 40 years.

Just because someone is under the age of 18 does NOT mean they are not adult.  There are many people over the age of 18 that are still children.

Age is but a number, when are people going to realize that?

[Poster's comments]

You get a US Attorney who's having a bad day, or under local pressure, and you could find yourself defending your photos against the 2257 requirements, it's easiser and safer to just keep the documentation.  To give you an idea a community group in Salt Lake City, UT filed a under age complaint about a photo currently in my profile and the legal fees to defend it cost $1500.  I won a civil judgement against the group, but you can't get blood from a stone.

Care to guess which one?

First off, 18-19 isn't underage in the US.  Second, as for the rest they're not underage unless you apply US standards to the rest of the world, which we have NO right to do.  Thirdly, as pointed out by several people here, it's NOT illegal ro show "simple nudity" of a minor here, tho as some others have pointed out it's not always a good idea.  But as a for-instance, before the Brit tabloids started upping their age rules the "Page 3" girls were often 16 or 17 and those tabs were widely available in the US.
So no, there's no hypocrisy.  It just serves to underline how ridiculous some feelings & opinions are in this country.

Well maybe not currently,

But I've heard that laws currently under consideration,
will make all nudity illegal except for the express purpose of having sex,
and will limit said sex to your lawfully wedded partner,
and will stipulate that said partner must be of the opposite sex
and the female partner of said couple must be certified to in the acceptable child bearing range of 25-40 years of age.

An exception to nudity statute under 2735.57 sec.c will apply if the individual needs to bath,
but this exception will only be granted if the proper form 2735.75 sec.a is first filed (in triplicate) with the designated nudity police 3 days prior to the expected bath date. 
It is further note the said bath must occur in a darkened room, alone, no exceptions will be granted.

I don't know what the laws are but I avoid shooting models under 18 whether they are posing nude or not.

My friend shot for Playboy and Penthouse for a long time.  One of the Playmates he shot was 16 and pregnant when she psoed for the magazine.

Please be aware that the consentable age is different in some countries than it is in America.

I come from England, the age of consent there is 16.  There have been many Page 3 models (ie: topless) that started their careers at such an age.  Indeed, one or two embarked on their chosen career on their 16th birthday.

Thus a 17 year old posing topless is not illegal in England but it is in America.

What would be interesting is that, technically, anyone residing in America and owning these images is breaking the child pornography law.

Just my twopennorth!

Clothing is immoral. Unless you're actually cold or in danger of getting sunburned, you shouldn't be covering up. If it's 85'F outside, wouldn't you rather be walking around in sandals and some sort of sanitary loin cloth? It's only comfortable!

Thank you!!!!! 

Again people, the US has no laws prohibiting implied or actual nudity of a minor as long as it is not showing them in a sex act or imitating a sexual act...or shown in a sexual manner.

Nowhere in that statute does it say that it is illegal to take a nude photo of a minor.  Actually, Section 2256 is the more applicable one, but what it prohibits is taking or posessing photos of a minor that involve real or simulated sex or a lacivious display of the genitals.

European Vogue does neither.
