When is a picture no longer art but child pornography?

There is a news story attracting a fair amount of attention concerning the work of photographer Nan Goldin, or one picture in particular. The story is carried by the BBC and they ask what is the difference between art and porn.

It seems rather strange that a picture owned by Elton John, which has apaprently been publicly exhibited several times since 2002, has only now been identified as an item of alleged child pornography.

At the same time, here in the UK, children are now more prone to allergies than ever before, probably because kids are kept cleaner and away from infections that fine tune their immune systems.

The link between the two is - are we over-protecting our children in this modern age? If so, who is to blame?
