CDN Government Decides Penis-Measuring Lie Detector for Children - Not A Great Idea

    Oh boy—where even to start with this one. Use of penile plethysmography (PPG), which measure your penis for arousal while viewing questionable content, is being ceased by the Canadian government. After being used on kids for 25 years.

    PPG testing, almost too perverse to believe it was actually a government-sanctioned procedure, was employed in British Columbia as a means of interrogating child sex offenders. A sensor was strapped to a child's penis, monitoring blood flow while the kid was subjected to images of other nude children, and audio descriptions of rape. Reread that sentence if necessary. The reasoning—if you can even call it that—behind the test was to discern whether a child offender was lying about his or her desires, though we have a feeling this treatment probably created far more sociopaths than it screened. As Boing Boing points out, and as any adolescent can tell you, erections aren't exactly the most objectively predictable phenomenon, refuting entirely the purpose of the test.

    British Columbia's Minister of Children and Family Development has put an end to PPG after the revelation that a technician administering the test was himself a sex offender. The levels of perversion-within-perversion here are dizzying. The Canadian government will now begin an official inquiry into trauma victims among the children subjected to PPG over the past decades—an investigation we have a feeling will not be a short one.


    seriously? this was going on for 25 years !@!!!!

    CTV British Columbia - B.C. permanently halts sexual arousal testing - CTV News

    B.C.'s minister of children and family development has ordered a permanent end to a controversial sex testing program for young offenders after learning one of its government technicians was recently charged with sexual assault.

    The penile plethysmography tests, or "phallometry," require boys as young as 13 in sex offence treatment programs to view pictures of nude and semi-clad children and listen to audio descriptions of forced sexual scenarios while their arousal levels are measured.

    Minister Mary Polak said although the tests are intended to help develop treatments for sex offenders, the questionable nature of the procedure outweighs any potential benefits.

    "Like most British Columbians, I was immediately concerned to learn of the testing being conducted involving young offenders, which is hard to fathom," she said in a statement sent to media Thursday.

    Polak also said the ministry was forced to take swift action after discovering one of the government workers who conducts the tests was charged with sexual assault earlier this month. The charge is not work-related.

    The BC Civil Liberties Association and the group Justice for Girls first raised concerns over the testing earlier this week.

    B.C. Children's Representative Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond is investigating the 25-year-old program to see if any of the participants were traumatized.

    Something is wrong here. Very, Very Wrong.

    Let me get this straight. The government has a collection of kiddy porn to show kids to see if they get boners? When I was thirteen, a slight breeze would give me a boner! How would this prove anything other then some sick Dr. came up with a procedure to become a legal Peddy.
