26.04.08 - Extreme Pornography Law, exploitation and UK law
This maybe worrying to fans of extreme cinema, being that the prudishness surrounding the portrayal of sex on film has led to exploitation and extreme examples of sexual sex as a counter balance.

In the uk, legislation has been drafted that attempts to criminalise extreme sexual acts.

I fear that huge manipulation by christian lobbies and other groups may try and attack legitimate and cult cinema in an extremely damaging way. The law classes possession of this in the same field as child pornography, necrophillia and beastiality... below is a snippet of mps objecting and a small snippet of lanugage that should be of concern if you are a fan of exploitation cinema.

Note the words "appear" and "depictions".
Quote:
Almost unreported, the UK Criminal Justice Bill is slowly wending its way toward becoming law. It includes a section (Clause 63) on "extreme pornographic images" that may, or may not, affect a very large proportion of the adult population in the UK. But that – the Bill's uncertain scope – is part of the problem.


On Monday 21 April, the Bill returned to the House of Lords for further debate. Lib Dem peer Baroness Miller brought forward a set of amendments that would effectively have removed the extreme porn clause from the Bill.

She pointed out that the evidence linking pornography with violence was weak and that the new rules would be out of kilter with the Obscene Publications Act. In her speech, the Baroness commented that "the Minister is in danger of leading his Government into becoming the thought police... we do not have any evidence to justify an intrusion in people's lives".

Further, "the Government's contention is that by viewing it [extreme porn] people are more likely to commit violent offences. Therefore, they justify walking into people's bedrooms and turning them into criminals simply for viewing something."

Labour peer, Lord McIntosh of Haringey added: "What does it matter to the Government whether what we have in our homes for our own purposes is for sexual arousal or not? What is wrong with sexual arousal anyway? That is not a matter for Parliament or government to be concerned about."

From the law
Quote:
acts which threaten or appear to threaten a person's life; this could include depictions of hanging, suffocation, or sexual assault involving a threat with a weapon;

Grouping in exploitation with acts such as child pornography, necrophillia and beastiality is going a tad far.
