• Barbie Stripped Bare: When Does A Kid’s Doll Become Kiddie Porn?

    When you strip a child’s doll down to its utter nakedness, what do you see? Do you imagine an alluring sexual pose in the palm of your hand? Or is it simply a piece of tan molded plastic with moveable parts? Does it matter who does the stripping, if it’s a curious boy who sneaks in to his sister’s closet or an older man digging through a church bin of donated toys? This question has become suddenly relevant with the publication of a nude Barbie Doll calendar created by an advertising agency in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    In recent years, pornography has literally leapt off the pages of girlie magazines and into video games, sex toys and even cartoons. This has had a dramatic effect on the way we define pornography and sexual material. On the one hand, we have the U.S. Supreme Court which declared that animation (anime) depicting children having sex is legal. On the other, we have cases like the one where prosecutors used the pre-teen sex doll (called a “muffdoll”s in prison slang) that a jailed pedophile made from a pillow as evidence of his proclivities.

    As for naked Barbies, they have an eerie sort of innocence. Blue eyes and golden hair make you think of the pin-ups of yesteryear– Bettie Page, Marilyn Monroe, Loni Anderson. And even with their clothes on, you can feel the sculpted body shape beneath, perfected over years and years of redesign that make her tall and trim like a fashion sketch. She is lean in all the right places, her feet are so delicate and small (but made well enough that they’re nearly impossible to snap off). But shorn of her outfits, she can be many things in many hands.

    Maybe this is the appeal of a naked child’s toy. Many a young boy, curious about the opposite sex, has attempted to undress the Barbies he finds in school playrooms or a friend’s house. The awkward flatness of her nakedness can be confusing. Her chest does not point or sag as it should, the line on her backside seems unfinished and, of course, there is just a tranquil field of evenness below the waist. Does this answer a youngster’s questions of biology? No, it only leads to confusion and intimidation. The same can happen with your Ken Dolls or marionettes. Naturally, these young people shouldn’t be playing in such ways in the first place. Nudity is not something the creators ever wanted to consider or promote. By stripping a Barbie, you are essentially cheating on your childhood.

    But even so, there is no denying that a nude Barbie is somehow pornographic. Maybe it’s those eyes, or the way you can rotate her arms to express astonishment or hurt. She can also look stern and cold, depending on what you want from her. She entices you or she strikes you down, those sharp little hands posed for a smack. The people behind this calendar surely knew this and went for the perverse, posing out lesbionic scenes, making her slowly undress before you very eyes, outrageously defiling what many a young girl holds precious. Barbie was once a paragon of virtue and clean living, now they have debased her for financial gain like some cretinous inner city pimp picking up a runway teen.

    In the end, the images shown here do not rise to the level of what the law considers pornography. For adults, there is always the option to look away or redress these dolls. For children, the young ones, it is simply a moment of curiosity that fails to result in enlightenment or further sexual explorations. They will drop these nude girls or boys and move on to a board game or tv show, forever filing away that odd moment of bitter castration. For those a little older, your teens and 20-somethings, this nudity is symbolic of their struggle out of immaturity and is, for the moment, indeed pornographic. For these sorts of young people, it is a highway pileup of toy fetishism, sexual desire, gender confusion, masturbation and the loss of innocence. Indeed we should not condemn the child nor Barbie herself, but aim our concerns at the types of people who so brazenly demand such displays of sexuality in anything and everything they encounter. What kind of person thinks of these things? What kind of man could go so far to purchase and strip a young girl’s toy? No, they are not men but cretins and pimps, desperately trying to sell off the last remnants of their excess hormonal baggage.
