Abstract

This article deals with an important area: the potential for
the act of offering a young male access to pornographic
materials as part of a sperm banking process to be construed
as a child protection matter. This is a concern that has
already been identified elsewhere and the authors have
sought to consider ways of reducing the likelihood of this
construction occurring. In particular, the authors have
made the case for the supply of pornographic materials to
be seen as meeting a clinical need rather than as a sexual
activity or one intended for the sexual gratification of the
(adult) professionals. This is the core of the argument and
one that merits serious consideration and formal recognition
by health agencies and Safeguarding Boards.
