Writing fiction takes me everywhere. This month it's juvenile delinquency, and in reading a book on the topic, a serious book published in 1990, I read this sentence:
"Children in pornography are at risk to be sold into white slavery, sexually or physically abused or contract sexually-transmitted diseases such as AIDS."
And here I thought I was reading non-fiction. I shan't mention the author or title of this book, but I will ask a few questions:
1. Is white slavery an anachronism, an urban myth, or a serious threat to today's children?
2. Are you amazed that children in pornography are at risk to be sexually or physically abused?
3. Can you diagram the sentence I quoted above?
4. Can anyone recommend a decent book on this subject?
