Thread: Age play porn now illegal in the UK?

  1. #1

    Default Age play porn now illegal in the UK?

    Did anyone hear about the long list of sex acts that are now illegal to film and sell online in the UK?



    ... bans the following acts from being depicted by British pornography producers:

    Spanking
    Caning
    Aggressive whipping
    Penetration by any object "associated with violence"
    Physical or verbal abuse (regardless of if consensual)
    Urolagnia (known as "water sports")
    Role-playing as non-adults
    Physical restraint
    Humiliation
    Female ejaculation
    Strangulation
    Facesitting
    Fisting
    Seems quite evident to me that this is nothing more than a dying industry (DVD porn producers) trying to protect their own interests, while also giving the religious zealots a moral high-ground to defend... What other shameful regressions in policy and civil rights should we expect in post-Brexit UK?

    Well, I hope to god Australia doesn't follow this bullshit, half the reason I use a VPN anyway, if they criminalize AB/DL for example, a few years later, might come bite me on the arse and I may end up in jail for example. Listed as some sex offender or some bullshit, who knows. A 16 year old sending another 16 year old nudes, is classed as child porn in this country... quite backwards. Who the fuck is that supposed to protect? That's a backwards law, I know people who happened to have that happen to them and got into a ton of shit. I think family guy made fun of that law, I'm not sure if it just effects Australians.

    Like seriously, we are losing freedoms by the minute, Australia starts spying on everyone on a massive scale, I hope Australia doesn't follow the shoes of other countries.

    Though that article does date 2014 :P Nothing a VPN can't bypass. Oh wait, NM they want to ban encryption, which is somewhat impossible to do since 90% of the internet use it anyway. I'm certain north Korea does the same.

    What next, watches porn, gets head cut off..


    Even Australia is trying to pull stupid shit like that.

    Yeah -- it was in the news two years ago when the law changed. There were protests in front of parliament -- lots of people with whips and leather, sitting on people's faces, etc.

    It's nothing to do with DVD porn producers (who have almost gone out of business in the wake of streaming video), it's MPs.

    The funny thing is that it's not the porn itself that is illegal; it's the filming of it in the UK. Such porn can still be filmed abroad and legally sold/streamed here. Because that makes total sense. :-/

    I think these kinds of bills tend to be weirdly nationalistic. It's not really about stopping the existence of those types of pornography, nor about protecting the actors who engage in making it. It's more about being able to say "We're better people than that."

    Edit: Also "better" being a particularly prudish judgment that looks down on everyone who is non-standard in any way.

    Oh I thought the issue was more recent than two years ago, but I guess I ran across an older article in my Googling. The law seems ridiculous to me, especially since none of these acts are illegal to do or watch... so why would they be illegal to produce with legal adult actors?

    A lot of it's about limiting the exposure of kids to it, in this age mobile phones and all; but i think that I need protecting, too, as my mate sends me some sickening stuff, to the extent that 'headbutting' seems a sane thing to do.

    Oh, and Farage also shot JFK.

    I don't think nationalism was much of a factor in the decision.

    I remember seeing a documentary about the history of film censorship in Britain -- from the early days of moving pictures and underground porn viewings in private members-only "cinemas" (small projectors in back-rooms) that were unlicensed and unregulated, to the founding of the BBFC (the British Board of Film Classification), and the criteria by which they judged and rated (or banned) films, and how that had changed over the decades.

    Anyway, IIRC, they concluded with a portion on pornography and how, over time, taboos had been gradually lifted. The least restrictive BBFC classification is a kind of 18+ rating where films can only be sold in person from licensed sex shops. Being a "new thing", the legislation didn't cover the internet. The documentary presented this as a "loophole" where "depraved porn" that was illegal to buy on DVD in the UK could legally be viewed online.

    MPs saw this and thought it would be an easy vote-winner to close the "loophole". They realised that it would be a mammoth/impossible task to try to control foreign websites, but maybe they could get a nice bit of PR by making internet video made and sold in the UK subject to the same restrictions.

    Despite there being no public interest, they pushed through the minor changes. It was only when they proudly announced what they were doing that fetish porn fans noticed and protested. Hardly anyone else really paid any attention.

    There was already an ongoing debate about how to protect kids from porn on the internet. MPs decided that porn sites should be required to prove that users were over 18 before letting them view porn, and closing this "loophole" was a good way to show that they were committed to reducing the availability of porn to under 18s.

    They're still debating this, and how it's going to work. (Or how it could work!) But I think they're planning to finalise and enact the new legislation soon. I think it will mean that UK-based porn sites will be required to take a credit card number before allowing access... but... I can't see how that would work (in terms of trusting free sites with your credit card number, in terms of privacy fears, or in terms of preventing children from being able to access porn with someone else's card). It all seems very silly and no one seems interested except MPs who occasionally murmur that "this needs to be sorted out!".

    I'm not into porn myself so I'm somewhat disinterested, but these "prudish judgements" about what people should and shouldn't be allowed to film/watch are very odd. It all seems to be a complete waste of time. If only MPs would address the real issues that affect people in this country... :-/

    I'm not sure what the motivation of the Parliament was for passing this. Was this a right wing "Porn is naughty! Think of the children! Sex is bad M'kay" motive, or was this more of "Porn objectifies the people starring in it", "Porn corrupts", "This stuff with spanking, whipping, BDSM, etc glorifies violence and abuse" crowd that identify as left wing. Doesn't really matter since I'm vehemently opposed to this either way.

    I may not be a fan of a lot of the stuff they're banning (Fisting is just...ick. No), but as long as everyone in the porn is consenting adults and isn't harming anyone, you should be allowed to make whatever kind of porn you want to make. We don't need government stepping in and saying "You can't make this ABDL porn, or this BDSM porn, or this Fisting Porn, because it's naughty and goes against our values". No! Just no! I don't care if you are offended or grossed out by the porn. Don't watch it! Afraid your kids might stumble across it? Do a better job monitoring what they watch. Censorship is never the answer!

    I don't even know how they'd enforce this? If two people have a scene, and they record it, and then put it up on some kink website, does that count as being illegal since their consensual ABDL/BDSM/Insert your kinky schtick here was recorded and essentially turned into amateur porn that somebody is going to jerk off to? Is there a way that they could tell if banned porn came from the U.K? It just seems not only anti-freedom, puritanical, and wrong, but also stupid and impossible to enforce.

    Really hope this is contained to the U.K and that this idea doesn't spread across the Atlantic.
