Netflix Accused of Streaming Child Pornography

Jun 29, 2018  •  Post A Comment

“Netflix has come under fire for a movie streaming on its site that some viewers say contains a scene that is child pornography,” The New York Post reports. “The opening scene of the Argentinian film ‘Desire’ depicts two young girls under the age of 10 playing around with pillows. The scene takes a sexual turn involving one of the girls.”

The Post adds: “The news site PJ Media said it reported the film to the FBI and Department of Justice for child pornography. The FBI told Fox News, ‘Per DOJ policy, the FBI neither confirms nor denies the existence of an investigation.’”

The report notes that the movie remains on Netflix. Viewers, meanwhile, took to social media to complain about the movie and call on Netflix to remove it.

One user tweeted: “Watch the first few minutes of the movie Desire from Netflix promotion of pedophilia absolutely disgusting!! Parents should be arrested for this scene alone!!”

  1. Um yeah!!!! That’s child pornography.

  2. Why would parents be arrested?

  3. Is there a problem with pedophilia? YES!

    IS THERE A CARTOON SHOW THAT INVOLVES KIDS DEPICTING PEDOPHILIA AND SEXUALIZING KIDS? YES.

    Is two 10 year olds having a sexual experience pedophilia? No.

    Is it appropriate to show this? No.

  4. I watched the movie. At first I thought it was disgusting, but I continued to watch the movie and quickly realized the beginning scene is a back story on why this girl is the way she is. Could they have done without the scene? Yes, they could’ve just narrated it. It actually was a good movie. It’s very sexual though.

  5. Why isn’t NETFLIX taking care of this? It’s not a question of a pervert making a bad movie it’s a question of Netflix adding it to their list so NETFLIX is the problem not a preferred director. Perverted directors are a dime a dozen – looks like NETFLIX is trying to make a major statement and push the site over into pornography. See you NETFLIX – Prime Video is way better anyway. Looks like NETFLIX is supporting all of this

  6. The director seems to think that the children had to know what they were depicting. Not so. A scene which depicts an underage child performing a sexual act is what makes this film illegal. Netflix should be severely punished for distributing this film.

  7. As usual all the uproar is good promotion. Haven’t seen “Desire” but makes me want to see what all the fuss is about.

    • You’re disgusting if you’re even remotely curious enough watch it.

  8. We have had Netflix for a long time but i CANNOT support a company that does this. I am cancelling immediately. There are far too many other streaming services. I do not need Netflix.

  9. Just curious Bren, did you watch the entire movie? If not, it’s probably a good thing you are leaving Netflix, no place for close-minded people like yourself.

    • What a POS OPEN MINDED SHHT U ARE

  10. CAN’T BE PEDOPHILIA if only children of similar ages involved. Silly you. However the valid point is it “kiddie porn” depicting sexual acts?

  11. Wow are some people prudish. The opening scene, without revealing ANY flesh, depicts a young girl masturbating, fully clothed, bouncing on a childs toy. Ostensibly achieving her first orgasm. Many women have similar stories they could tell if honest. This is really no big deal. I am not even convinced the girl acting knew what she was depicting, and either way there’s nothing shameful or the least bit pornographic here.

    • It doesn’t have to include nudity for it be considered inappropriate. Masturbation still falls under sexual content, regardless of age and the fact that it’s a MINOR depicting something sexual (again regardless of clothing being involved or not) is highly inappropriate.

    • Many women also have stories of being inappropriately touched by a pedophile, if they’re honest. Since when is shared experience a standard by which it’s okay to normalize a thing?? Further, no big deal by your opinion means absolutely nothing if you’ve neither been nor had any real experience with a pedophile.

    • If you think it’s okay for some one to make a ten year old girl masturbate in front of a camera while they are filming it so you can watch it, and you think the people objecting to it are the ones with the problem, you just might be a kiddie porn addict. Way to out yourself as a pedophile.

  12. Just cancelled my subscription after learning about this and also sent a lengthy email to Netflix before bowing out. Those fools probably won’t respond anyway.

  13. This is Child Porn netflix Are Sick F××kers I Just Cancelled My Subscription F.U. netflix 😠👎

  14. Americans so sensitive, yet have no problem aborting millions of unborn babies. Argentinians see life and art differently yet still love their children just as much. American viewers and in general are so judgemental of what they don’t understand buy have no problem supporting illegal and murderous wars.

  15. Oh for crying out loud – this is no more child porn than Brooke Shields’ parts in BLUE LAGOON and PRETTY BABY. Then there was the uproar over Kirsten Dunst in INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. The main thing all of those films had in common with this film in that NONE OF THEM ARE / WERE KIDDIE PORN.

  16. 10 year olds aren’t sexual. So whatever they did, they must be copying some behavior they saw. But it can’t be sexual because physically, they don’t have that desire or intention. Two kids is not pedophilia. It could be considered child porn, though. It could be that the film is okay in Argentina, but wasn’t screened out for America, which has stricter laws or sensibilities. Netflix is global, now, so may take time to jive all the different laws in the different countries. If that can be done. If the scene IS against the law. I don’t know the law and haven’t seen that movie.

  17. I was so happy to cancel my Netflix subscription . Garbage in garbage out, not at my house!

  18. I think it’s a disgusting cartoon and I just don’t find it funny, there isn’t anything funny about a father telling his son that he can “touch a penis or even kiss it slowly” think that’s absolutely revolting and I can’t believe this is not something I pay for.
    If people can’t see it’s wrong then there is something seriously wrong with them!
    I’m sickened by the fact this is on TV for anyone to see. My twelve year old can access this shite, as if they ain’t pressured into stuff already, all they need is this crap on the telly.

    I’m cancelling NETFLIX!

  19. Any scene of children touching themselves beeing touched or even insinuating of anything of the sort is contributing to the fact that this is a 10 YEAR OLD DAMIT IT IS WRONG ITS DISGUSTING AND SEEMINGLY FEEDING THE EYES OF PEDOPHILES COME ON NOW THIS SHOULDN’T EVEN BE AN ARGUEMENT AND HER PARENTS HAD TO GIVE CONSENT WHICH SHOULD BE ILLEGAL ALSO! EITHER WAY IT GOES. PEOPLE. CHILD+SEXUAL ACTIONS +CAMERA+RECORDING=FUCKING MILD KIDDY PORN ! FOH SOME OF YOU ARE SICK AF

  20. Netflix violating own children 12 and under audience warning by advertising MA-TV show Sex Education. Class Action Now

  21. Notes from the director:
    Of course this scene was filmed using a trick, which was that the girls were copying a cowboy scene from a film by John Ford. The girls never understood what they were doing, they were just copying what they were seeing on the screen. No adult interacted with the girls, other than the child acting coach. Everything was done under the careful surveillance of the girls’ mothers. Because I knew this scene might cause some controversy at some point, there is ‘Making Of’ footage of the filming of the entire scene.

    Everything works inside the spectators’ heads, and how you think this scene was filmed will depend on your level of depravity.”

    This girl had no idea that the director was depicting this scene as sexual in nature or that she was doing anything sexual. There is a lot of documentation on this topic/movie. Not pedophilia, “Pedophilia definition: sexual feelings directed toward children.”

  22. The point isn’t what the kids are doing or any backstory. Its that perverted child abusers will ” get ofg ” on this. Theres no need for it. WHY WOULD ANYONE DEFEND THIS?!?

  23. The point isn’t what the kids are doing or any backstory. Its that perverted child abusers will ” get off ” on this. Theres no need for it. WHY WOULD ANYONE DEFEND THIS?!?

  24. This what happens should when the liberals left decides what is moral. LBGQT and the left sanction NO MORALITY. You asked for this. now you have it. if you saar liberal in public tell them. Leave them with no choice but confrontation. This is what the liberal media and Democrats deserve. WRATH.

  25. Pure scum. I can’t even believe people are in the comments condoning the sexualization of small children. They are either pedophiles themselves and get their jollies off watching children or their pure stupid.

    People had the right idea back in the day with thinning the people through Eugenics. If we had just left it alone we’d have weeded all the unnecessary rejects and would have far less criminals and crazies running around in this world today. We’d also be less populated. It would have been a win win for everyone.

  26. Maïmouna Doucouré,remember this name.this is one of the adults who along with the parents coaxed these children into giving up their innocence, dignity and self respect for money and success based on a false narrative that its “shining the light”on child sex trafficking and the exploitation of little girls,meanwhile this propaganda not only fuels pedophilia but sexually exploits little girls in itself with many other derogatory scenes that should never be allowed to be seen,while we have laws in america to keep the media away from showing this kind of filth and from profiting off of modernized kiddie porn and to keep pictures and videos off computers and phones alike.if an individual can be arrested for having the same exact images and video that were allowed to be streamed by netflix on any individuals person at anytime and is against the law why isnt Maïmouna Doucouré,netflix and the parents of these poor children not being charged with a crime.anyone who has viewed this movie is a direct accomplice to a crime and I say this with complete confidence for like i stated above it is illegal to watch or possess any form of sexual exploits of little kids.there is no justification Maïmouna Doucouré can make,theres no defense strong enough from anyone who can stand in support of such derogatory scenes.theres no explanation or excuse that can ever condone this at all no matter what narrative Maïmouna Doucouré,the media and any supporters who back this explicit content try and push that can swing this kiddie porn in a positive light,with art and creativity being the objective I find it despairing that this was the best choice, that this is what a creative artistic mind can come up with to bring the horrible actions of child exploitation and sex trafficking to light.this is nothing more then a ploy to tear down more families,oppress women by sexualizing them while degrading them and tearing apart their true beauty and independence at such a vulnerable age,americans find it hard to believe that 10 and 11 yr old girls are faced with the reality that’s portrayed in this rhetoric.the normalization and conformity of these actions cannot be allowed,our youth is our future, if this movie is not removed,this will be the begining of kiddie porn being pushed as beautiful and artistic. Doing the right thing is always frowned upon by the left as they go against facts and evidence daily which we see over and over.if this movie is allowed to stay on,this country as we know it has limited time before everything great we once were will now be turned over to an evil we have tried to keep out time and time again.justice must be served,law must be upheld and the actions of these sick individuals who see nothing wrong with this should be held accountable for their participation in such a creation.This will not go unanswered,cancel netflix should be top priority for we have seen the power money and success has when they can get away with targeting and influencing our very children within our own homes without ever facing the consequences. NO AMERICAN SHOULD STAND DOWN FROM THIS UNTIL SOMEONE IS IN JAIL,UNTIL THIS FILTH IS REMOVED AND WE RESTABLISH THE STANDARD WE ONCE HELD FOR OUR CHILDREN AND OURSELVES.THIS WILL NEVER BE SOMETHING WE CONFORM TO AND WE WILL NOT STOP,THIS WILL NOT GO AWAY UNTIL THEY ARE PUT AWAY…PROTECT OUR CHILDREN,
    CANCEL NETFLIX AND DO NOT STOP UNTIL NETFLIX IS BANKRUPT AND PEOPLE ARE CHARGED.I GUESS NETFLIX THINKS THEY ARE UNTOUCHABLE SINCE THE OBAMAS SIGNED A 50MIL DEAL.WHERE ARE THE OBAMAS ON THIS,TURNING THEIR BACKS ON AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN FAMILY ONCE AGAIN THAT WE HAVE CONTINUOUSLY SEEN.A HORRIBLE LEADER AND A EVEN WORSE AMERICAN,THE OBAMA FAMILY
    SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES AS SHOULD NETFLIX,THE DIRECTORS AND PRODUCERS AND MOST OF ALL THE PARENTS OF THESE INNOCENT CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN BETRAYED,TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AND USED BY PEOPLE WHO KNOW BETTER,BY PEOPLE OUR CHILDREN ARE SUPPOSED TO TRUST

  27. Netflix and those who have watched cuties along side the director and producers of cuties and the people who those kids trusted the most,their parents are responsible for this.these kids were sold off to those who have created,viewed and supported this video.its been said that these kids had no idea of what was being filmed,I’m sure if they were told before hand of what was going to be filmed and how they would then be portrayed,those 11 yr olds would’ve been mature enough with the sense to realize it was wrong and it would be disgusting to be used in that fashion,I guess we will never know.the very people they trusted,used these kids unknowingly of what the film would be based on that they were casted for..their defense is the kids were imitating or copying something they saw,in what household is a 10 or 11 yr old watching videos like cardi b’s “WAP”and if they are watching this kind of content how are the parents not charged with a form of abuse and neglect,we find it hard to believe any parent is encouraging their 11 yr old daughters to be a stripper,let alone look and dance like one.Most fathers spend their lives doing all they can to keep their daughters off the pole but yet cuties sets the platform to try to normalize and conform us into excepting this kind of content and behavior using innocent little girls in the worst way.this isnt art,this wasnt creative,this wasnt original nor does it lay the ground work for girls to grow up respecting themselves at a pace that will give them time to come into their own person.
    creativity and art would have come into play if this was created without exploiting little girls sexually and not taking the so called “creative”course most people would take for profit,following the masses isnt unique,following trends doesnt make you original.it wouldve taken real bravery,talent and actual creativity to create a film that can actually have an impact on societies who experience the dangers and damages that come from sexual exploitations and child trafficking..the average age of young girls who are victims range around 14 yrs old,because at the age of 10 and 11 music videos and videos like this start normalizing sexual behavior while conforming the innocence of a child into believing this is what kids their age are doing.This is a real problem both morally and ethically. It’s a shameful and embarrassing day for actual artists and creators to have someone claim this kiddie porn falls under actual beauty and artistic creativity.i question the integrity of anyone who watches this or supports this,these are red flags and each individual should be looked at by the FBI closely and for a lengthy duration.tax payer dollars should be used to monitor and curb individuals like this who create and support this kind of content instead of those same tax dollars being used on programs that tear down this country and the integrity of what we stand for.
    Having images of half naked undeveloped little girls on any device is illegal,having suggestive sexual video of half naked little girls touching themselves or over exposing themselves is illegal.
    So tell me,as netflix,the director and its supporters highly encourage critics to watch this award winning film,if what’s in that video is and would be grounds to arrest an individual if that same exact content was found on someones device,how is this video and all its underage sexual content allowed and does it make those who have viewed these crimes take place, accomplices to a form of child pornagraphy.this is another example of how those on the left,especially those with money on the left feel they can hover above the law while enforcing laws on everyone else when they are the true people we should be protected from and where laws should apply even harder because of their status,they are allowed to do what they want,say what they want and justify any and all actions no matter how much damage they cause,free and clear to break laws that protect us over and over without consequences or ever being brought to justice.this content will be the start of what they will conform people into excepting.15 yrs from now kiddie porn will be on a normal channel,all because we couldn’t stop it with the birth of cuties being normalized today.
    Millions of signatures are being ignored by netflix as they stand in defense of this underage sexual content…its time for every american to cancel netflix,if Netflix’s refuses to remove underage sexual content then it’s time for americans to remove netflix from exsistance cutting off their ability to exploit underage girls in a sexual way ever again.
    Defund Netflix and cancel immediately,
    united together can make the change that’s needed before it’s to late.

  28. I agree with the poster that it could have been handled much differently if it was important to the story and asking a child actor to perform in this matter is not ethical. However, for the poster who wrote that ten year old children are not sexual, you should really become more informed. I don’t say this to judge you but to emphasize that when you have correct information, children you may care for are safer, because correct sex education has been shown to prevent sex abuse. Girls at age 10 go into puberty, some even younger. 10 year old girls are sexual in that they are curious about sex and they explore their bodies, and yes, some have orgasms. It’s normal. Children begin exploring their bodies and playing with each other at much younger ages. Have you heard of kids playing doctor or family? It happens. That said, I don’t think it should be the topic of a Netflix movie. I think it should have been handled more sensitively, if at all.
