BOYS AND PORN

Recently 3 young kids, two boys and a girl presumably from the ages of 8- 10 years engaged in a 3some sex and had it videotaped and it found its way on the internet. What was shocking was the girl who presumably was the oldest was the one directing the boys on the sexual posture to take and equally was the one who positioned the phone to record it. It was obviously clear they had gotten exposed to porn and were basically acting out what they had seen. What was most pathetic was that it was been circulated all over social media.
