Stop Apple Providing Porn to Kids

 

Apple is allowing the sale of pornographic applications for the iPhone in its iTunes store, with the content then being downloaded onto the iPhone.  Some of these applications are free to children and adults; and links to web sites that lead to even more explicit pornography are also given on iTunes. And even if teens do not purchase or download these “apps,” Apple provides samples of the pornography on iTunes for all to see. (Click here for a recent article on some of the salacious iPhone apps available.)

 

Typical content has included items with names like “Shawna Lee Private Dance,” which shows a porn starlet with her hand down the front of her bikini bottom fondling herself; “Love Positions Free,” with a drawing titled “doggystyle” showing a couple having sex; “1001 Boobs Lite;” and “Tasty Pasties 18+ Amateurs” (at one point, the 11th most popular “app” out of thousands on iTunes). All of these applications are free – and available to children.

 

Please help us hold Apple responsible for providing pornography to children. Call, e-mail, or send a letter to Apple, and tell them to remove pornographic content from their phone apps and iTunes store.

 

To phone Apple: call (408) 974-2042 (press “0” and ask for “customer relations”)
