While Americans Are Protesting For LEO Reform, UK Citizens are Protesting For ... - December 12, 2014, 10:46 AM

"Protesters chanted: “What do we want? Face-sitting! When do we want it? Now!” Participants wearing gimp masks used mats and blankets to act out face-sitting."
Porn produced in the United Kingdom quietly incurred some major restrictions on Monday, via an amendment to the 2003 Communications Act that bans a long list of sex acts from appearing in adult films. While the new restrictions do not affect porn produced outside the UK (and do not prevent people from watching such porn), they do require on-demand adult films to meet the same guidelines as adult films available on DVD in sex shops. That means eliminating all sorts of different performances, from spanking to stangulation — many of which are typically associated with female pleasure.

According to the Independent, the British Board of Film Censors has banned strangulation, face-sitting and fisting from UK-produced porn under the auspices of preventing potential fatalities (the censorship board considers the acts “life-endangering”). Other banned sex acts include caning, aggressive whipping, penetration by any object “associated with violence,” physical or verbal abuse, urolagnia (perhaps better known as water sports) and female ejaculation. Oh, and yes, spanking.


Mistress Absolute, 39, a professional dominatrix and fetish promoter, said the law was restrictive.

“I felt that this was the beginning of something to creep into my sexual freedom and sexual preferences.

“This is a gateway to other laws being snuck in.”

Several of the now-banned acts (for example, all that life-threatening face-sitting) are cornerstones of “femdom” pornography, which carries explicit (no pun intended) messages of female domination
, agency and pleasure. Additionally, regulations on physical and verbal abuse, for instance, completely ignore that concept of consent, despite the fact that it is critical to BDSM and healthy sexuality in general.

Her friend Neil Rushton, 33, a mature student, said: “They’re very sexist laws. These are very geared towards women’s enjoyment as opposed to men’s.”

The pair will take part in the mass face-sitting this afternoon.

Justin Hancock, a sex educator who runs the website Bish UK, said: “Often the same filters that block these websites block my website, so I suffer from the same kind of censorship issues that the porn industry does.

“This particular regulation will not prevent one person from seeing any porn that they can’t already see elsewhere anyway.

“Them using the argument around sex and young people is completely specious.

“It’s moralising. It’s about saying as a society what kind of sex is okay.”

Hancock also warned that the “state is trying to take control of the internet”.



As pornographer Erika Lust notes in an op-ed for the Independent, the measures seem to be part of a larger effort to suppress sexuality in order to present one normalized view of pleasure, which effectively ignores pleasure for women. The rules have been openly presented as a way to “safeguard children,” but Lust says the government is going about protecting the kids all wrong.

“Is it correct to teach our children that certain sexual acts are wrong and others not?” Lust writes. “When a lot of these ‘R18 rules’ are targeted at censoring female pleasure … doesn’t that perpetuate the poor gender education our children are already receiving? We should be teaching them about the importance of female pleasure, not censoring it.”

Sex workers and campaigners have gathered in front of parliament to protest against changes to UK pornography regulations.

Organiser Charlotte Rose called the restrictions “ludicrous” and said they were a threat to freedom of expression.

Protesters say the list of banned activities includes “face-sitting”, and campaigners planned to carry out a mass demonstration of this while singing the Monty Python song Sit On My Face.

“These activities were added to this list without the public being made aware,” Charlotte Rose said. “They’ve done this without public knowledge and without public consent.

“There are activities on that list that may be deemed sexist, but it’s not just about sexism, it’s about censorship. What the government is doing is taking our personal liberties away without our permissions.”

The protest comes after the government said a list of sex acts has been banned from online porn videos filmed in the UK, in a bid to crack down on “harmful” content.

A quiet change in legislation has ruled that paid-for online porn videos must now adhere to the same rules as content produced for sex shop-type videos.

It means acts that would not be classified as an R18 rating, in line with guidelines laid out by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), are prohibited.

....or Max Mosley.

As for Japan, oh, I don't think anyone will top the Japanese anytime in the near future.

The amount of "WTF" that is generated in that country makes the tales of Caligula seem like pretty tame in comparison.
