"Extreme porn" laws tested (This post will make you a criminal)


Viewing this post may make you a criminal!


This will probably not pop up much but it is worth noting that a person is now on trial for possession of so called "Extreme porn".

and strangulation:

both of which I'm sure appear in films, TV and now this webpage it's kind of a stupid thing to prosecute over, especially as the making of these images is not illegal: just their viewing (sorry you are now a criminal).

Anyway stupid law is stupid and hopefully this won't go through
