This law also makes it an offence for an adult to expose a person to any indecent matter, 'without legitimate reason', where that person is under the age of 16 years, or the adult believes that person to be less than 16.
These provisions have extra-territorial effect in relation to the location of the adult or the child, by the use of the words 'either in Queensland or elsewhere'.
It is no defence if it is in fact impossible for the child to engage in the sexual act intended.
To 'procure' includes knowingly enticing or recruiting for the purposes of sexual exploitation.
If, however, an adult approaches a child with the intent of engaging in sexual activity, but no sexual activity actually takes place, that may or may not constitute an offence.
Whether or not it is an offence depends on the available law.
