What I define as "adult" is not going to show up on Wikipedia outside
of an educational context. Kids are naturally curious. I'd sooner they
got the giggles over someone's penis on a web site and had the
opportunity to learn something about their own bodies from a
probably-accurate source than browsed porn sites and learned something
about the profits that can be had from exploiting people.
