New Porn Law Could Criminalise Millions

In a week in which Brown plans on turning millions of cannabis users back into criminals it’s no surprise to hear that up to 2 million people could be criminalised by a new bill expected to be brought into law next week.

The new bill outlawing the possession of “extreme pornography” will carry a possible prison sentence of up to three years as well as leading to the perpetrator being placed on the Sexual Offender’s Register.

UK fetish contact sites have already warned that they may have to remove photos of people who have partaken in entirely legal and consensual acts from their profiles. A last minute campaign to lobby the House of Lords is being pursued by Backlash amongst others.

It is unclear as to the scope of this new bill, presumably leaving it for the courts and the CPS to sort out once it becomes law. The wording of the bill says that violent porn means:

(a) an act which threatens a person’s life,
(b) an act which results, or is likely to result, in serious injury to a person’s anus, breasts or genitals,
(c) an act which involves sexual interference with a human corpse, or
(d) a person performing an act of intercourse or oral sex with an animal (whether dead or alive),

Zombies are said to be spitting blood at this breach of their civil rights.

  1. I am in favour of this it develops peoples minds and encourages a small minority of those into raping people and sexually assaulting people. it also is very degrading.

    The idea is wrong though – not for possession but for hosting porn or making such porn would be a good idea.

    Go on any porn site there will be pictures or videos of this – get stored in your cache then go to jail for 3 years?

    Another example of NL. Like NMW, New Deal etc. the general concept is good.. but it is implemented wrong!

  2. I am certainly not in favour of this. This is Government trying to censor what we see, trying to control our indoor lives. I’m not interested in “violent porn”, but I’m interested in stopping the Government from gradually taking away small liberties till the point where we can’t even eat what we want. Oh, that’s the case already, anyway, (Psilocybin mushrooms), carry on.

  3. Two million Brits? Is that a valid approximation of people in the U.K. who receive sexual gratification from viewing videos with scenes containing sadism, masochism, beastiality and/or necrophelia?
    Sorry, Dan, but this is NOT a case of the thin edge of the wedge! The fact is that is there is a market for these types of films, there will continued incentive by those who make them to maintain ‘realism’, to the point where men and women will continue to be subjected to rape or torcher, animals to be violated, and corpses desecrated.
    These films are NOT in the same group as male or female erotica (or pornography if you prefer), as the proposed banned films, if truely showing the acts, all involve acts of NON-CONSENT.

  4. I have to agree with Dan. “Extreme pornography” isn’t a government issue and shouldn’t be written into laws. A government is put in place to protect it’s citizens and the welfare of the people. People like Peter who believe that these people “who receive sexual gratification from viewing videos with scenes containing sadism, masochism, beastiality and/or necrophilia” are in danger of committing the acts that the people portray.

    I think that people who are suddenly derived from viewing these acts are MORE LIKELY to commit them unto people, then before when they could watch as much as they wanted in their own private setting.

    The adults in the “extreme porn” industry know before hand what type of actions they will be performing and are not being abused in any way.
    The people that perform the “extreme pornography” know what the outcome may be whether or not it actually injures them or what-have-you.
    A fetish with “extreme pornography” is not a danger to the welfare of your country, and should not land a person in prison for having possession of it.
    Two more cents from across the pond.
