The Brits Are On the Verge Of Losing Their Access To Kinky Sex Online

If we thought that Brexit was the worst thing to happen to Britain in recent times, the just-concluded crackdown on online adult content totally trumped that! In 2017, the British censor board will be able to ban X-rated content even on the internet. Internet service providers will soon have to prevent users from accessing sites that have such content. Age verification shall also become stringent as certain content will require you to be of a certain age to watch. With fetishes on the rise, what means will those who “require” it have,to satisfy their sexual desires?

What Brought About The Legislation

Very similar to a situation that came about in 2014 that prevented websites from violating UK obscenity laws, the current legislation, about to come into force in 2017, is an extension that says that videos that are not allowed to be sold as physical copies because of their smutty nature, will not be available online as well. If it feels like the government is trying to dictate what content is good or bad and controlling one’s use of the only “really” free environment around, that is what they were going for. According to Jodie Ginsberg, chief executive of Index on Censorship,

It should not be the business of government to regulate what kinds of consensual adult sex can be viewed by adults.

This is something that resonates with the masses as well. But nevertheless, the British government seems extremely keen on the matter and has gone ahead with the legislation. It has got by largely because it purports to keep “harmful content away from children” – hence the age bar.

What Will and Won’t Be Allowed

As of now, the BBFC has not stated any concrete guidelines on what will be permitted, but the results of years of regulation on pornographic DVDs gives us a clue. The BBFC will also use the 1956 Obscene Publications Act as a reference while framing the new legislation. Based on this, some things that we can predict are: male ejaculation will be allowed but it is almost certain that female ejaculation will continue to be deemed too obscene; nothing more than “light physical vigour” will be allowed in terms of spanking and the like; some things that are obviously out are urination, public sex, and face sitting, or anything involving menstrual blood.

The British government also made it very clear about what would happen to offenders who did not follow their regulations.

In making this assessment, we will apply the standards that we apply to pornography that is distributed offline. If a website fails on either of these [age verification or obscene content] tests, then a notification of non-compliance will be sent to the site.

This could attract fines as hefty as $250,000. On top of this, websites will also be blocked from accepting payments made through credit cards (to access the website’s content).

Ways To Get Around The Legislation

While it is not legal to watch the acts of extremely kinky sex online, there is no law that prohibits them from being viewed. So if one lived in the UK and had any fetishes that needed satisfying, the only way that’s happening is if they can find a willing partner, or leave the country.

First Brexit and now this… glum times ahead for the UK!
