Enjoy this spanking, then go to jail

Here's a risky ad for Dr Martens, supposedly made for MTV. To jaded eyes like mine, there's nothing particularly shocking about this. A man is strapped down to a table and various things involving feathers, spanking and a dominatrix, occurs. It's amusing to me, but maybe I'm a stinking pervert who needs locking up.


If you experienced an adverse reaction to this short film, then put yourself on the side of the perv-bashers behind the latest piece of badly-considered legislation in the UK, which could earn people up to 3 years in jail for "possessing violent internet porn".
The person behind this is the mother of a murder victim. The perpetrator was obsessed with the most extreme type of porn which would probably be beyond the pale for 99% of us.
The problem I have with this is that the two words "violent" and "porn" are extremely subjective and it is harmful to apply this to law. Supporters would argue that the law simply applies existing law to the internet. But the pervasive nature of censorship, when it carries the threat of lengthy jail terms, is such that it causes otherwise innocent people to modify behaviour when there is no need. It brings the invisible nanny into your home.
If you dabble in paedo porn then you deserve everything the law can throw at you, but if your tastes are restricted to anything that involves consenting adults, then this law means it would be dependent upon the whim of a jury whether you are a criminal or not.
