Playboy Primes Polanski and Others For Child Sex Trafficking

In January 2004 Playboy founder Hugh Hefner proclaimed, "WE WON!" with a depiction of the bunny flag replacing the stars and stripes over the US capital. Who was "we" and what was won? "We" were the sexual revolutionaries who had been touting sexual freedom, promising lower sex crime, fewer divorces, less unhappiness, fewer sexual diseases.

What they "won" was the battle against those pesky Judeo-Christian laws and morals that had controlled America for decades. Now the Sexual Revolution had arrived!!! Everything would be fun, frolic and folly! It'll be great! What could go wrong?

Hefner said, "Playboy is the magazine that changed America." Playboy's "Bunny" flag and "morals" would dominate our national worldview.

Decades later that "change" would reverberate as #MeToo #TimesUp, and, a stunned public would ask, "how did this happen to us?"

But, its' been "happening" for sixty years. Hefner rode into the cultural scene on Kinsey's criminal "sex science" hobby horse immediately libeling women who marry as gold diggers.

By November 1954, Hefner's Playboy featured a cartoon suggesting toddlers wanted sex for pay (above) (hence could be trafficked). Hefner is quoted as admitting the "association of the erotic impulse with wanting to hurt somebody." Indeed, torn from love and duty, the "erotic impulse" is hurting everyone.

Playboy Foundation's "chronology of social activism," announced it was financing the de-facto legal arm of the democratic party, the American Civil Liberties Union. Consequently, Playboy would play a key role on the sociopolitical, legal landscape.

By August 1976 an "erotic" photo-story directs Playboy patrons on how to kidnap and abuse teenagers. Photographer Helmut Newton's essay portrays a young girl who is kidnapped after school, locked in a motel room, kept nude for days. She has "consensual" sex with Newton and "several million" witnessing Playboy viewers. His kidnapping narrative was so successful that he republished the photo-story again, concluding "Yes, she is old enough to be your daughter."

Playboy featured many of the celebrities now targeted by the #MeToo movement. Woody Allen was featured in "candid" Playboy interviews, and ~467 cites, none of which mentioned any of the alleged incidents which are in the news now. Charlie Sheen was featured in candid Playboy interviews and ~86 cites in which he mentioned renting prostitutes but not his alleged rape of young Corey Haim in 1986 or his alleged "preying on more children connected to the 1986 film "Lucas".

Kevin Spacey was featured in a "candid" Playboy interview and ~67 articles, but no mention was made of his "gay" persona or his use of young boys that was allegedly common knowledge. Bill Cosby had ~119 articles from 1964 to 2009 and THREE Playboy "candid" interviews, 1969, 1985 and 1985! By 2006, Cosby, settled a lawsuit with a woman claiming rape; other females have similar claims. Harvey Weinstein had only 21 articles citing to him, no "candid" Playboy interview, and no coverage of his history of rape and abuse, apparently of adult women, at this point.

Playboy also devoted a great deal of attention to child rapist Roman Polanski, who was convicted in 1977 of drugging, sodomizing and raping, a 13-year old child. He fled the country before sentencing and has remained a fugitive since then. However, he has continued making movies and winning accolades from his colleagues, many of whom are now part of the #TimesUp movement.

Polanski's sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl was a reflection of the contemporary cartoons in Playboy, such as the two below, which portrayed children as willing participants in sex.

"Why don't we slip off the dress and show on nice Mr. Wolfschnitz the titties." (And, (right) "No thank you nice man, I don' want to go for a ride in your car. Why don't we just go up to my place and ball?"

In January 2000, The New York Times weighed in for the "suffering" Roman Polanski recalling an interview at Il Matriciano, "one of his favorite haunts" in Italy. The "chief of the Rome bureau of the New York Times" Alessandra Stanley was appalled at America's puritanical view of artists. Ms. Stanley gushes over Polanski's "artistic" perversity in her piece on the "Auteur," a sophisticated word for a film producer. She said Polanski "wants nothing more than to make important films." His most recent film at the time, "The Ninth Gate," was "an occult thriller...that features satanic rituals...gruesome deaths." It is, laughed Polanski, "an advertisement for hell."

In 2003, he received the Best Director Oscar for "The Pianist." When the award was announced, Meryl Streep gave Polanski a standing ovation. Polanski's leading man, Adrien Brody received the Best Actor Oscar. According to Vanity Fair, Brody gave the presenter of the award, Halle Berry, an open mouth "tongue job," that was applauded by reporter Dominick Dunne, but not appreciated by Ms. Berry.

Playboy continued promoting adult-child sex and other "edgy" topics though cartoons, which, as it said in August 2006, p. 42, The Playboy Advisor, was due to its knowledge consumers can certainly be and are "sexually aroused from...viewing cartoons... Cartoons and comics constitute one of the few genres that can still push the limits." Cartoon sex "That's going to linger." Playboy's cartooned male offender often resembled the viewer; white, successful, middle class males often celebrating drug use, kidnapping, pimping, adultery, incest, prostitution, promiscuity, bestiality, lesbianism, gang rape, trafficking, etc. Male impotence was a regular cartoon feature.

Playboy's pushing of the limits eventually facilitated an demand-fueled epidemic of child pornography evidenced in Fight the New Drug's report on Pornhub's 2017 summary of the year in pornography. Pornhub, the world's largest porn site, reported that it received "81 million average visits a day" in 2017. Pornhub also reported on the most popular search terms of 2017, the first seven featured below.

The "Fight" blog notes, "if hundreds of millions of people are intentionally searching and viewing porn involving scenarios of moms having sex with sons/stepsons and daughters/stepdaughters (not to mention sex between siblings/step-siblings) what do you think this is doing to our society's collective sexual fantasies and expectations? Is it fair to assume that this massive demand for mom, stepmom, and stepsister porn influences the consumer to think that sex with family members is hot, and acceptable?"

Images are not ideas; "they are action potentials," stimulating, entering into brain, body and memory. Do filmmakers, such as Polanski, and actors fuel the world's growing pedo-criminality as seen in the Pornhub chart, i.e., hentai, stepsister, teen and cheerleader, including the aforementioned "child pornography epidemic"?

Hefner's vision planted a global porn "church" and, brains, minds and memories have been restructured to where porn now boasts "several million" daily viewers. Suddenly, after 80 years of "the casting couch" #Metoo, "TimesUp" far-leftists laser focus on the consequences of sexual exploitation on their "right to work," not on the consequences of child abuse in the industry, or the diminished right to work for conservatives excluded from the Hollywood elite. Restructured brains do not prioritize the abuse of children when such abuse has been part of Playboy's cartoons for more than 60 years. Child sex trafficking is an outgrowth of these restructured brains.
