Florida Child Porn Suspect Sexually Aroused By 'My Little Pony'

| by Lauren Briggs

A Florida child porn suspect told police that he is a “clopper” – someone who is sexually aroused by the children’s cartoon “My Little Pony,” reports the Daily Mail.

Alexander Carlsson, the 25-year-old from Longwood, Florida, was arrested on Wednesday following a police raid earlier that day. Officers discovered caches of child porn images on three separate devices that Carlsson owned.

Authorities took him into custody and questioned him. During the interrogation, Carlsson confessed to police that he is aroused by young girls between the ages of three and 16 as well as their depictions in anime cartoons. He added that he also enjoys Japanese Hentai porn depicting abused young girls and children, and he performs sex acts while watching My Little Pony.

His illegal porn activity began nearly a year ago.

Carlsson used a TOR network to anonymously browse the Internet as well as to download and upload child porn, according to WESH.com.

While TOR is supposed to be an anonymous way to access the “dark web” of illegal activity, including child abuse images, drug dealers, illegal weapons, and even hitmen, the FBI caught onto his activity and was able to trace his identity and location. They passed his information on to police, who obtained a search warrant on Tuesday and raided his home on Wednesday, where they found proof of his illegal obsession.

Officers booked the “clopper” as a federal prisoner in the Seminole County Jail, although the Daily Mail reports that he is currently at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Florida. He was denied bond.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic first aired in 2010. The Hasbro toy line-based cartoon will air their sixth season later this year.

On the show, the main characters Twilight Sparkle, Princess Celestia, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie solve problems together in Ponytown. Each pony stands for a different aspect of friendship.

The show’s target audience was originally young girls, although it has become popular with males of all ages, who identify themselves as “Bronies.”
