Hungary May Legalize Porn Involving 14- to 17-year Olds For Home Use

This falls into the category of – YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! If this weren’t being reported by the Associated Press, I’d consider it a hoax. I fail to understand how any sane adult could make this argument.

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — A bill modifying Hungary’s penal code could allow pornographic material involving 14- to 17-year-olds to be made and kept for personal use.

The Justice Ministry said the draft proposal, presented last month by Hungarian Justice Minister Jozsef Petretei, was in line with European Union norms which give members states the right to regulate the issue at national level.

But Opposition lawmakers attacked the proposal as “legalized pedophilia” and a family welfare group described it as “the waiting room of prostitution.”

Petretei said Monday that the proposal had taken into account the age in Hungary — 14 — at which consensual sexual relations are allowed.

“If we consider people 14 years of age to be mature enough to consent to sexual acts, then the chance to make picture recordings of this … can also be allowed,” Petretei told lawmakers in parliament.

The minister added that if deputies felt the issue offended their “moral sensitivity,” they could propose changes to the bill.
