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! 🙂

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! 🙂

NEW REPORT: Gail Dines of Stop Porn Culture on their UK conference this past weekend!

[Independent] — If you turn on the television, flick through a magazine or look at billboards, you will see that porn has now become a blueprint for how the media represents women’s bodies. Whether it be Katy Perry writhing around almost naked in a music video, or Miley Cyrus “twerking” with a man almost twice her age (who seems to have a “blurred” understanding of sex), the images that bombard us daily look much like soft-core porn did a few decades ago.

Today there is almost no soft-core porn on the internet, because most of it has migrated into pop culture. What we are left with is a porn industry that is now so hard-core that even some of the big-name porn producers and directors are amazed at how far they can go.

Feminists from six countries convened in London this weekend for a Stop Porn Culture conference that focused on how porn culture shapes our ideas about sexuality, relationships, masculinity, femininity and intimacy. Recognizing that porn images have now been seamlessly woven into our pop culture, thanks mainly to the internet, speakers addressed the multiple harms of bringing up a generation of girls and boys on misogynist images.

One of the key issues discussed at the conference was the way porn fans are becoming increasingly desensitised and are looking for more hard-core content. According to porn director Mitchell Spinelli, fans are becoming “more demanding about wanting to see the more extreme stuff.”

Here’s another excellent article on @Belle_Knox that notes how porn is overall still oppressive to ALL WOMEN.

[The Week – Excerpt] – It’s notable, for instance, that the major media venues who are now airing Knox’s feminist editorial are only doing so because she’s a curious sexual tabloid spread. That women’s bodies are easily marketed is no strike against the patriarchy, and that a woman can get attention for her political views only after appealing to male sexual desire certainly doesn’t seem to indicate any serious move in the direction of equality.

But let’s leave aside whether this theoretically breaks the barriers of sexuality and focus on a side of porn that has gotten far less attention in this debate. What material good do women gain from the porn industry?

At the performer-level, porn is a notoriously treacherous place to make a career. While female performers might make more than their male counterparts, most of them just don’t get paid that well, thanks in part to the rise of piracy, cam sites, and the glut of material online. And dwindling profits mean not only pay cuts for performers, but an increased willingness to jockey to meet the demands of a mostly male audience. This competition has two major negative outcomes for Knox’s anti-patriarchal project.

First, it means that male consumers dictate the terms of what’s depicted. As a result, male desire impacts the work and health of performers. For example, a 2012 study found that porn performers in LA had higher rates of STIs than prostitutes working in Nevada; the study authors chalked the prevalence of infections up to the reluctance of studios to enforce condom use because visible condoms aren’t arousing. In other words, the industry drive to respond to male sexual desire could well be the reason performers like Knox are in danger of contracting life-threatening illnesses like HIV. Is this what bucking the patriarchy looks like?

In case you missed it, the Nordic Model for prostitution was approved last week by the European Parliament! Yay team!! 🙂

[IB Times] — A vote at the European Parliament that supports the ‘Nordic Model’ of prostitution has been voted through with a large majority.

Put forward by Labour London MEP Mary Honeyball, the model of prostitution law criminalises the client instead of the sex worker.

At the vote, 343 members voted in favour of the report, 139 against and 105 people abstained. Commenting on the outcome, Honeyball said: “Today’s outcome represents a vital signal from MEPs that we cannot continue to tolerate the exploitation of women. Rather than blanket legalization, parliament has backed the more nuanced approach already practised in Sweden as a means of tackling prostitution. This punishes men who treat women’s bodies as a commodity, without criminalising women who are driven into sex work.

“The idea that prostitution is the ‘oldest profession’ leads some to think we should accept it as a fact of life – that all we can do is regulate it a little better. This course of action leads to an increase in prostitution levels, normalising the purchase of sex and ingraining the inequalities which sustain the sex industry.

“The outcome of today’s vote symbolises the changing attitudes of EU countries on this issue, and the desire of member states to learn from one another. I hope today’s result will encourage member states including the UK to be radical and ambitious enough to go Swedish.”
