I don't think it's *porn* or *online porn* that's the problem there. I think you have to narrow it down a bit further than that. There have even been studies done that showed a negative correlation between availability of "normal" porn and frequency of sexual assault, suggesting that men-it's-mostly-men-after-all who are that way inclined seek an outlet one way or the other and will settle for the readily available porn instead of taking risks.
Number of issues with castration, like it being irreversible and verdicts occasionally being wrong (see, for example, original Hillsborough reports, the Guildford Four, the Maguire Seven and so on). There's also the matter of motivation. Taking away the sex drive could reduce someone whose thing is little girls from predator to just some old guy who occasionally sees a little girl, thinks she's beautiful and wishes he could take her on a horse-riding holiday because she'd like that and she's got a lovely smile. Sure. What about someone who's using rape as an expression of hatred rather than trying to get off regardless of the other person's preferences or opinions? Not being able to get it up won't make him hate any less or be any less inclined to act on hate. He'll just find something else to use, like a glass bottle.
Locations of bodies? One sturdy chair, one roll of duct tape, one serrated kitchen knife, a bottle of vodka and a week or so, and they'd be begging to tell the truth. It's probably better for the soul to just stuff the bastard full of barbiturates, ecstasy and marijuana, keep him talking and wait for him to run his mouth.
