With the exception of acts that involve children, adults incapable of giving consent or animals, porn stars in the United States are free to do pretty much whatever they want. There are some condom laws and disease testing guidelines that needed to be followed, but in general, if it’s not against the law, Uncle Sam is fine with people filming it and selling it for money. In the United Kingdom, that is definitely not the case anymore.
Earlier this year, the Audiovisual Media Services Regulations, or AMSR as the people who work there probably call it, took a big red marker and crossed out more than a dozen popular fetishes that some normal human beings are into. According to London 24, members of the British bureaucracy felt the availability of such materials was encouraging folks to take part in risky activities, some of which are allegedly life-threatening.
Below is the entire list of the 13 things British porn stars are no longer allowed to do…
I think I speak for every open-minded, fetish-driven porn enthusiast when I say, ‘Seriously, England?’
I have no idea why the British are interested in dissuading people from sitting on each other’s faces. I also have no idea what the Queen could possibly have against spanking, one of the most vanilla fetishes in the entire world, or against female ejaculation, something a fair percentage of women experience in real life. But I guess the British Parliament have their reasons for wanting to impose a rigid definition of sexuality on the population.
In response to the censorship, porn stars, sex professionals and random, forward-thinking people have banded together to break the world face sitting record in front of Westminster on December 15th. It’s unclear exactly how many people might show up, but right now, the figure being thrown out is 500. The protest likely won’t get the law overturned, but it will at least weird out a fair number of people who will pretend like they’re above pornography as they walk by.
Thus far, no laws have been proposed that would restrict the sexual behavior of the British People in anyway. So, if you’re going on vacation to England and feel like peeing on your partner in the shower, go for it.
