But sexual exploitation of a child isn't diminished just because other people were also guilty. Nobody forced Hef to publish those photos, and it wasn't an isolated incident (cf. Playboy's nudes of 11-year-old Eva Ionesco).
I hope we can at least agree that publishing nude photos of pre-teens for sexual titillation was a disgusting act, regardless of how many accomplices he had in that.
