Interesting news! The UK is no longer allowing certain types of abusive and BDSM pornography to be made or sold.

The list includes some life threatening acts, such as strangulation, facesitting and fisting. Also: “spanking beyond a gentle level, full bondage and restraint (in conjunction with a gag and all four limbs restrained).” Finally, abusive language during sex, depictions of non-consensual sex, and urinating, if “performed onto another person or consumed.”

———-

Wow! This new law is limited because people in the UK can still watch all of the porn with the above content that is made in other counties. But still, it seems they are trying to do what they can to stop the worst abuses in pornography that they have control over.

What do you all think of this? Please let us know. Thanks! 🙂

On Wednesday a landmark vote in the California senate could specifically require condoms for all porn shot in California.

The porn industry is already legally required per CAL OSHA general health and safety standards to provide protection from blood borne pathogens and potential sexually transmitted diseases, but this bill, AB 1576, would specifically address the porn industry.

Despite a recent UCLA study showing how much higher the STD rates are in the porn industry than the general population (see: http://www.aidshealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Adult-film-poster-STD-Prevention-2014.pdf), the porn industry is fighting this bill in a really big way, including with expensive lobbyists they’ve hired. They don’t want anything cutting into their profits gained by exploiting their workers. (Many of whom are young and uninformed, and often survivors of sexual abuse.)

READ THE FULL ARTICLE ABOUT THE UPCOMING VOTE:

http://www.edgeonthenet.com/news/aids/News/161031/%E2%80%99condoms_in_porn%E2%80%99_vote_looms_in_ca_state_senate

To elaborate, technically barrier protection from blood-borne pathogens and STDs is already required countrywide in all workplaces by OSHA standards. However, because the porn industry likes to avoid any such regulation, they have not been complying with these standards.

So Measure B, to specifically require condom use in porn, was passed in Los Angeles *city* first of all, then Los Angeles *county.* So it is now specifically required that condoms be used in porn films in those areas. This has resulted in more filming taking place outside of those areas, such as Ventura County and San Francisco, etc. But many, if not most, just continue to shoot in Los Angeles County, but don’t get the film permits they are supposed to, and still don’t use condoms.

Regarding the entire state of California, CAL OSHA standards still currently apply, but aren’t yet being fully carried out or enforced, which is the motivation behind getting the bill similar to Measure B, called AB 1576, passed for all of California. This is the bill that is going up for a vote this Wednesday in the California Senate.

The porn industry has continually threatened to move out of state if condoms are specifically required state-wide, and if this law is regularly enforced. However, many see this as an empty threat, because technically pornography is only legal to film and California and New Hampshire, and the likelihood of them setting up in New Hampshire is very slim.

Currently some filming does illegally take place in Nevada and Florida, and some other states, but the Aids Healthcare Foundation has made it clear that should the industry decide to actually start filming in great quantity in Nevada, Florida or elsewhere, that they will get similar legislation as Measure B and AB 1576 passed in those other states.

Since this is a bit of a complicated issue, here are two other articles which give a few more details which might be helpful:

We will update you Wednesday or Thursday as to what happened. Hopefully we’ll have good news that the porn industry will be held to the same standards as every other industry, and will have to protect their workers!

Yay! Prostitution is now illegal in Canada! Plus there’s a new focus on DEMAND — through prosecuting pimps and johns — and on helping women exit the sex trade and transition to better lives. See basic details below, and the full press release covering all points at the link.

“The Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act is a “made-in-Canada” model, which directly targets the demand for this dangerous activity. The Act would introduce tough action to crack down on pimps and johns. For the first time, the purchase of sexual services would be criminalized, with tough penalties for those who exploit others through prostitution. The proposed legislation would also protect and safeguard our communities-in particular women, children, and those who are at risk of being drawn into prostitution-from the dangers associated with prostitution, including violence, drug-related crime, and organized crime.

“This model involves a significant overhaul of the Criminal Code’s treatment of prostitution and related activities. It would:

— Criminalize those who fuel the demand for prostitution, i.e. purchasers of sexual services;

— Continue to criminalize those who financially benefit from the exploitation of others through prostitution, such as pimps, and those who procure others for the purpose of prostitution;

— Prohibit advertising for the sale of others’ sexual services in print or online;

— Immunize those who sell their own sexual services from criminal liability for any part they play in the purchasing, material benefit, procuring or advertising offences;
Protect our communities by criminalizing communicating for the purpose of selling sexual services in public places where a child could reasonably be expected to be present;

and

— Increase existing penalties relating to child prostitution.
“These measures will be supported by $20 million in new funding, including to support grassroots organizations dealing with the most vulnerable. Assistance will be provided to those who want to leave this dangerous and harmful activity; therefore, there will be an emphasis on funding programs that can help individuals exit prostitution.”

NOTE: We acknowledge that this is not the same or as ideal as the full Nordic Model that abolitionists were hoping and working for, but it is still a HUGE improvement from previous laws, and an even greater leap from what pro-sex industry people were going for. So we consider this to be a significant success and an enormous step in the right direction. Go Canada! 🙂

Here is an Interesting article about one good man named Adam Steinbaugh (@AdamSteinbaugh) who’s doing everything he can to hold revenge porn profiteers accountable. Hopefully he will inspire others to step up and just SAY NO to ALL types of porn!

“I was really pissed off at what was being done to these men and women and wanted to do something about it,” says Steinbaugh, 31. Once exposed, the men are subject to public shaming. Sometimes people will take sites down when they get wind Steinbaugh is going to expose them. Others lash out at him. “I get death threats and threatened with lawsuits,” he says. He hasn’t been sued yet but those he has exposed have.”

Apparently watching porn can also make MEN sick, LITERALLY, as a Chinese “porn identification officer” learned — the hard way…

“At 59 years old, Chunqi Liu has been working as a professional “porn identification officer” for five years, assisting police investigations on cases involving illegal distribution and possession of pornographic materials in China. He has seen over 600,000 adult videos to date. That averages out to about 329 videos per day! Does that sound like an awesome job to you? He says it makes him throw up.”

If someone DIDN’T feel sick after watching that many porn videos, we think there might be something seriously wrong with them! What do YOU think?

Here’s a thought-provoking article by Katha Pollitt (@KathaPollitt) calling out the Left on their support for prostitution. Go Katha!

“It’s one thing to say sex workers shouldn’t be stigmatized, let alone put in jail. But when feminists argue that sex work should be normalized, they accept male privilege they would attack in any other area. They accept that sex is something women have and men get (do I hear “rape culture,” anyone?), that men are entitled to sex without attracting a partner, even to the limited extent of a pickup in a bar, much less pleasing or satisfying her. As Grant says, they are buying a fantasy—the fantasy of the woman who wants whatever they want (how johns persuade themselves of this is beyond me). But maybe men would be better partners, in bed and out of it, if they couldn’t purchase that fantasy, if sex for them, as for women, meant finding someone who likes them enough to exchange pleasure for pleasure, intimacy for intimacy. The current way of seeing sex work is all about liberty—but what about equality?

I thought the left was about that, too.”

PLEASE NOTE: This article was written by a feminist Leftist and is not criticizing ALL people who identify as “Leftists” or “feminists,” only those who support “sex work,” because, as the author correctly points out, such support is inconsistent with the stated true ideals of both the Left and feminism.

Important new research has been released showing how to best reduce DEMAND for sex trafficked women and children! It also clears up certain myths about certain ways of reducing sex trafficking…

“As well as profiling buyers the Immigrant Council of Ireland examined if the men ever came across women they believed were being controlled by pimps, were frightened or were trafficked. The results are startling, with over one in four admitting they had come across women and girls they believed were in such situations. A significantly lesser number considered to report this to the authorities, dispelling the myth that buyers are helpful in tackling human trafficking.”

Much more vital info at the link below! Please check it out and share! 🙂
