A bill outlawing the possession of "extreme pornography" is set to become law next week. But many fear it has been rushed through and will criminalise innocent people with a harmless taste for unconventional sex.
Five years ago Jane Longhurst, a teacher from Brighton, was murdered. It later emerged her killer had been compulsively accessing websites such as Club Dead and Rape Action, which contained images of women being abused and violated. When Graham Coutts was jailed for life Jane Longhurst's mother, Liz, began a campaign to ban the possession of such images

People have fantasies... some are kinkier then others, some are a lot further out there, and some are illegal if done for real(such as this article is talking about) does that make them killers? No. I know people that have rape fantasies... women and they're on the receiving end. That doesn't mean they want to be raped.

This is in essence no different then blaming violence on violent video games... makes no sense and has nothing to actually back it other then a single terrible incident.

Like the article said - just because there are alcoholics in the world doesn't mean that you ban alcohol.

While I don't personally approve of some of these sexual acts, if no one is being harmed, I don't see why it should be banned. Consenting adults and all that.

Just more Nanny Government, which probably should be expected by now in the UK. Pretty much everything is going to be banned there, eventually.

I would agree with Sequoia. I don't care to have my morals legislated to me. As long as no one is being harmed, the government needs to stay out of my sex life.

There currently are states in the USA where any position except for missionary is illegal. Fellatio? Cunnilingus? Sodomy? Masturbation? Even the selling of toys? All illegal in some states. Oh, freedom!

I would like to point out that those states reside mainly in the SOUTH. They don't count. :p

Besides that, those laws are very rarely enforced (if ever), and are slowly being overturned as they are rediscovered.

Read an article a while back about how somebody that worked at an adult store in some town in Texas got arrested for uhhhh, I forget the charges... because they were in possession of 5+ sex toys. I had wanted to buy about 7 toys, send em to the mayor of that town, and call the cops to give an anonymous tip... just to prove the point that the law is stupid.

Yes...but you still cannot perform the act of cunnilingus , on
a woman , in a shopping cart , in California...it is against the
law...at least if you get caught...:lol:

Awkard. I was under the impression that they are responsible for voting your current president into office... so they do count in some respect.

Ahem! I live in Texas, mind you, and I LOVE going to the adult video/toy store! Very interesting stuff!

They should just overturn those silly laws! There are totally ridiculous ones out there!

I'm just impressed (a little disappointed too) that no one has blamed the "religious right" for this - at least that's who'd get the blame in the US anyway, even though the nanny staters are in all parties apparently.

didnt there also used to be laws banning gay sex in the south? like, if you were in the privacy of your own home and someone walked in on you having gay sex, they could have you arrested.

or maybe ive heard a stretched version of it... idk.:giggle:

Yeah that was it. Some cops in Texas were investigating something completely unrelated and caught two guys having sex in their own apartment which was apparently unacceptable. It went to the Supreme Court and they won.

Excellent! When will those unconstitutional state laws be stricken from the law books?

I looked it up and apparently sex toys are banned in Georgia. Which is pretty funny considering we have a sex toy store chain around here called Starship. And they are all over the place and very popular. :lol:



Not to mention theres a law against keeping donkeys in your bathtub. Darnit.

In Illinois, it is illegal for anyone to give lighted cigars to dogs, cats, and other domesticated animal kept as pets.

In Chicago, Illinois, it is illegal to fish in pajamas.

In Chicago, people who are diseased, maimed, mutilated, or "otherwise an unsightly or disgusting object" are banned from going out in public

It is legal to protest naked in front of city hall as long as you are under seventeen years of age and have legal permits.


Illinois, how I adore thee :lol:

I have no idea, but as I've yet to be arrested, it must not be enforced up here :lol:

• Homer: It is against the law to use a slingshot unless your are a law enforcement officer. (uh oh...)

• It is against the law for a monster to enter the corporate limits of Urbana, Illinois. (DISCRIMINATION, I tell ye!)

The list goes on and on......

They just recently repealed the sodomy laws in Missouri. They weren't being enforced by the law, but when it came down to it other organizations used them against people- especially adoption agencies, who used that to give them a legal right to deny homosexual couples custody. Anyone that can deny you something based on "moral character" etc. could use that against people.

So funny while it is, it can still bite.

As for the article in question, I don't think they quite understand. I know most websites of that nature have a disclaimer somewhere saying that all models consented (sometimes they have a way to prove it) and that the subjects potrayed are fantasy, ie "Don't try this at home kids".

There was a famous site a while back that got shut down for being too kinky. They had every right to do what they did, but they didn't want to exhaust their resources in legal battles. Now the sites that want to be sucessful don't feel they can venture outside the mainstream very far... so porn remains typically low quality.

I think I know too much about this topic.
