So Now, "simulated Rape Porn" Is Illegal In The Uk

7 posts in this topic

Is this all UK jurisdictions or just England and Wales?

 

I knew there was already a law against "extreme porn" but now we also have "simulated rape porn". Note the word simulated means it is still illegal even if it depicts consenting adults playing out a consensual role-play.

 

But how does this affect BDSM porn and porn involving bondage in particular? Example if there is a porn movie of a woman is handcuffed to a bed having sex does that mean it is now illegal to view even if it is clear she is having fun?

And the penalty for watching such material is apparently the same as the penalty in the USA for committing actual sex assault.

So how does this pan out for anybody with a copy of The Accused on DVD? :rolleyes:

Or even Downton Abbey.

 

Could be fun for the lawyers. In the real world it is often argued in Court that it was not rape but consensual sex.

 

No doubt we will see the argument - No Milord this was not rape porn but consensual sex porn.

I think I support this.  But I'm torn, since there are video's like Jodie Foster in The Accused that are now banned.

I just watched a clip today which I didn't know the theme of and it turned out to have such a scene in it. 

 

If I stop it as soon as I know the subject where do I stand?

 

Is it the film makers, the distributors, the viewers, all of these who are at risk of prosecution?

Nothing new here.Under the bbfc rulings,one of the few things that they can refuse to certificate a film for is for scenes depicting sexual violence.They were found to be exceeding their authority a few years back with regards to other genres,ie old school video nasties but not on this score.They may allow some scenes through which they consider "integral to the plot"subject to some cuts.Purely for sexual gratification however is a different matter.
As for BDSM porn.In the UK as far as ive understood,if you buy a film from a legal,licensed distributer then the women can be bound,punished ie whipped/caned but by other women and definately no mf sex.

Everyone stop worrying. 

 

As soon as Rhoda Grant gets her internet watershed in place it will be a moot point.  :blink:

 

I dearly wish that woman would stick to Stornoway black pudding, which she would appear to know more about.
