Do you have child porn on your phone?

My one and a half year old daughter and I were playing in our pool. I took her wet clothes off when we got out and let her run about naked outside to get dry. She went to smell the flowers and our cat was hanging out with her smelling flowers and letting her stroke him. I saw a photo opportunity and got some lovely shots of her with the cat and the beautiful flowers.

My dh said "I wouldn't have those pics on my phone. Just incase". I thought "shit, maybe he's right?" She is naked but it's obviously not sexual!!! Ew! I never even considered it. But in this day and age, I wonder.... should I delete them or is it ok because it's my kid and obviously innocent?

I remember my mom having naked baby pics of me - cute ones obviously. Nothing was wrong with it then. But now i just don't know!

What are your thoughts, ladies?

I have naked pics on my phone and computer. ::shrugs:: nothing sexual about them IMO so I really don't care what others think. I don't share them onFB or anything so if you are looking at them then you are snooping through my phone and that is your issue, not mine.

Nude pics are not porn.

I wouldn't call that porn, but... There was a story a year or so ago about a soldier who's sister sent him pics of his niece playing naked in the pool and they brought him up on possession of child porn charges. I think cute nude kid pictures are okay to take but you shouldn't send them online.

I've heard stories like this too. That's what concerns me. What if I lose my phone, someone finds it, decides it could be some kind of porn and hands it in to cops? R they gonna charge me with possessing indecent images or something?! Where's the line?

I don't see anything wrong with it. It's just cute pics. 

But I read about a law-suite against Walmart few years ago..  Parents printed some pics of their 3 kids playing in the tub, naked. An employee called CPS and children was taken from them. They were given the children back since the judge decided the pics were not child porn. But those kids were in Forster homes for about 4 months. The parents sued Walmart afterwards.

Ffs. That's exactly my concern. Anything could have happened to those kids while in foster care.

I know.. Sometimes the laws are so stupid and harmful.

PS: I just googled it up and the kids were girls age 1.5, 4 and 5. CPS took them for 1 month not 4.

Personally I would take them off of my phone. What if you lost your phone and some pervert did get a hold of those pics. What we see as cute and innocent those people see as sexual. And who wants their kids pics passed around like!? People make me sick but it is something to think about! I have pics of my boys when they were little nude but they are in baby books or photo albums. It's sad but it is the reality we live in.

There are apps you can download that have passwords on them so people can't look at the pictures in them.
