The story makes a good point about none of these cases ever having had a ruling on whether or not the photos in question was actually pornographic.
It also raises the proper concerns about making the child both perp and victim.
As for the 18 years olds they are as we all know kids too. Very very few 18 year olds are anywhere near an adult in mind. That age is an arbitrarily chosen number based on the optimum age for drafting soldiers. Old enough to be strong and learn young enough to believe whatever you tell them.
That os not an adult im my opinion.

I had been through 6 years of very violent CSA before I was 12.

I was mentally tough and disciplined enough to be as adult as anyone when I graduated and entered the Marines at 17. Bootcamp was not very hard for me mentally, and I was not reshaped or remolded from who I was before I went in any way.

This is truly moronic. We have guys who are routinely molesting dozens of boys that get probation and counseling while 2 kids playing show and tell using a cellphone are threatened with prison and sex offender registries. Meanwhile some guy in California on probation kidnaps an 11 yo girl and keeps her in his backyard with 2 other girls he fathered for 19 years all the while visited by California's finest. Sometimes I wonder if these prosecutors are just into adding the pictures to their personal collections.

Also, in a town not far from the PA part of the story, my mother fled with me and my brother from an uncle who raped and tortured us us, being met by a sheriff who acted like we were lucky he was allowing us to escape.
