Hope you can conform.


"The Obscene Publications Act may be used as a basis. These make reference to sexual acts involving urination, female ejaculation and S&M acts "

Do ya'll get to vote on what "Conventional" means?

Look into what was "illegal" before now mate.

Google when was homosexuality legalised in Scotland. Or anal sex in the UK or Rape in marrage in the UK.

We are getting there and no need to go backwards but understand where we came from in this society.

Well Female ejaculation is conventional and S&M is conventional for most of the Establishment, so I can't quite understand why they would consider those.

The rest of whatever it is they're looking to forbode, I personally couldn't care less.

We've come a long way baby!!

Er, please don’t panic.

This is (I think) to do with the Digital Economy Bill 2016/17 which is going through the House of Lords (in the UK) at the moment. The Bill puts a duty on porno sites to put age verification when viewed in the UK, and the body to oversee what is an “adult website” is the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). The BBFC work with several legal frameworks, including the Obscene Publications Act (OPA). That’s how we get this tenuous link.

The OPA has been tested in court in recent times and really only extreme and violent porno is now in scope, such as rape, sexual injury, bestiality et al.

Besides, who cares if there’s less porn on the internet, or someone has to tick a box saying they are over 18. But it makes a good panic story, doesn’t it?

As long as they don't ban vomit sex, or the caressing of balloons while wearing mascot suits, I'm in the clear.

Combine this with the requirement that our ISPs store all of our browsing habits for 12 months, and the government has just found a way to criminalise pretty much everybody.
