UK produced pornography has been "quietly censored today" with the following now being illegal to depict in UK produced pornography: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...n-9897174.html

Spanking
Caning
Aggressive whipping
Penetration by any object "associated with violence"
Physical or verbal abuse (regardless of if consensual)
Urolagnia (known as "water sports")
Female ejaculation
Strangulation
Facesitting
Fisting
The final three listed fall under acts the BBFC views as potentially "life-endangering".

Whilst I find the entire thing ridiculous in of itself the one that REALLY pisses me off is the banning of female ejaculation in porn. Now it personally doesn't float my boat and what have you but I don't see how in any way it can be not seen as sexist to ban female ejaculation but not male ejaculation?

Though they shouldn't be banning any of it. Bloody ridiculous.

I don't really look that far into it as sexist. But nobody is taking away spanking from me.

I really don't see how it can't be looked at as sexist.
Why is female ejaculation so abhorrent but male ejaculation isn't?

Though the censoring of all of it is ridiculous.

This is only UK-produced porn. The best produce it in the US so it's not a huge issue.

True it's only for UK produced porn.
But that's hardly the point, the point is that they are deciding what is and what isn't acceptable in terms of sex. No one can censor people's sexuality and fetishes. It's the principle of it.

Unless it is something that is literally illegal (e.g. snuff films), I don't think there should be any censorship at all.
Spanking, really? That is incredibly tame and happens in a lot of 'mainstream' porn... Caning, whipping, strangling are not par for the course so they make slightly more sense (but still not enough to ban it) but seriously, spanking?

I know right? I thought we were becoming at least somewhat more progressive as a country and now here were are going back 100 years. Ridiculous.

Maybe we just shouldn't do these at home - do them in public.

Why is it that stuff like this is only reported on once it comes into effect and therefore it is too late to do anything about it?

I want to know exactly why this has come about and exactly which idiots are responsible for it.

Yeah I don't get the female ejaculation bit.... Plus how is fisting potentially fatal?! Stupid. I suppose only about 0.005% of all porn on the Internet is produced in the UK anyway.

Well that's just daft and damaging.

It's okay to say that it doesn't matter because US films exist but it will have an impact on home grown films in terms of investment but also through educating the people watching these films that things such as female ejaculation are immoral and shouldn't be out in the open.

It reads like a ban on queer bdsm :/
