This book attempts to move the discourse of children and sex farther by presenting a different framing of the topic. This new framing positions children not only as objects of protection but also with agency in the context of sex and sexuality and as right holders within a broader discussion about sex, sexuality, and related aspects of gender. Indeed, children are not only exposed to sexual environments, they are engaging in sexual conduct and with sexual media in ways that have never been considered before. Thus, this book aims to promote a more enlightened dialogue on the topic of children and sex—one that invites new legal responses reflective of both children's agency and rights.
