(WASHINGTON, USA) -- ``Yahoo!'s hardcore pornography offerings to kids and adults know no bounds!'' said Patrick Trueman, AFA's director of governmental affairs. The company has numerous necrophilia (an erotic interest in corpses) pornography clubs available to its users. ``Rob's Necrophilia Fantasy Club'' is an example.
The club has autopsy photos of naked women, and medical school cadavers. There is also a photo of what appears to be an emaciated concentration camp victim lying naked in a mass grave next to a deceased child. A sexually suggestive caption is included with the photo. ``Yahoo!'s support of this kind of sick material is beyond irresponsible, Trueman said. It is shameful. Nearly 3000 Yahoo! users belong to this club and that may explain why the company protects it. The bottom line for Yahoo! is money and users bring in money.''
Yahoo!'s ``Gay Necrodudes Club'' has numerous photos of naked men who are victims of murder, automobile accidents, and hangings. Also included are photos, which, according to the club, are actual World War II photos of dismembered naked soldiers. On this and similar Yahoo! clubs members discuss their desire for sexual acts with dead people. On Yahoo!'s ``Real Suffocation Club'' members trade information about asphyxiation, strangling and drowning, all in a sexual context.
``Yahoo! pornography clubs are open to all, including children because Yahoo! executives want it that way,'' Trueman said. The exposure to children of Yahoo!'s hardcore pornography does lasting damage to children. Yahoo!'s pornography clubs are no place for kids or adults and they should all be closed. AFA continues to urge all Yahoo! users to avoid the site. They are also asked to join AFA's petition drive urging Yahoo! to clean up its site. The petition may be found at http://www.afa.net .
