So, naked boy/girl = child pornography? What about little children that bathe topless in swimming pools? What about any other very common circumstance where a child's private parts could be exposed momentarily?

This is going to be seen by just one guy for a couple of seconds. It's probably not gonna be sexual at all - dude will be just doing his job. So why the hell do we always think that being naked means we're being sexual?
