Believe me, I understand having a fetish for bad boys. We've all entertained certain fantasies after seeing a particularly rousing episode of Prison Break. What woman wouldn't want to spend a night with a tattooed alpha male who looks like he's been carved out of stone. Can I reserve a cell for two please? But some woman take their carnal cravings for a law breaker a little more seriously. When imagination just won't cut it, they look for the real deal and seek real life inmates looking for love.
What is Child Exploitation? The very words exploit means to use unfairly for one's own advantage. Sexual abuse can take the form of child exploitation for example, by photographing the child in a compromising situation, with the intent to either use the photos for their own sexual stimulation or to sell the photos as pornography. It can also mean kidnapping and selling children into prostitution, or even just forcing someone younger and weaker to do your will.
Has your comfort zone become your prison? Taking time to reflect on your life right now can give you the answer. Knowing yourself is the first step in bursting out of your prison. I know there are many schools of thought on this. One is to take baby steps, just put your toe over the zone and see how it feels. If it doesn't feel good then go back to yourself imposed prison!

For those who question the maxim, 'love conquers all,' the Los Angeles Times feature, "A Quarter-Century Marriage To A Man Behind Bars," by Joe Mozingo, is a must-read. Meet Pamela Dowden and her husband, Robert Griffin. Dowden. The couple married in Folsom State Prison, beneath a guard holding a .30-caliber rifle, and the bride later drove off the prison grounds to spend her wedding night alone. The best man had recently been caught in metal detectors hiding knives in his rectum; the groom, an inductee into the prison's racist Aryan Brotherhood gang, wed wearing jeans and a prison-issued shirt. Most surprising in this 'love conquer's all' story is the couple's divergent life choices. Griffin's adolescence was marred with heroin addiction, robbery and violence; Dowden married him her first year out of law school. Their pairing is unlikely, too: the couple used to be in-laws. Dowden had previously been married to Griffin's brother, and met her now-beau on his high school graduation day in jail. She grew to know Griffin intimately (that is, emotional intimacy) while writing him letters on behalf of the family. She debated his racist beliefs and mailed him feminist books, like The Second Sex and The Women's Room.
