Consent and the law in the UK

In the previous post, I linked to a story about a couple who were in public play and the woman was tied up naked in the backseat There were spotted and the police were called and they were arrested. You can read about it in the previous post.

Anyway, this is a link to painspleasure's blog about 16 gay men who were arrested and jailed in the UK in 1990 for consensual s@m activity which was videotaped.

Here's the link:


Here's a link The Spanner Trust about defending the rights of sadomasochists of all sexual orientation and to reverse the UK court ruling. And it says a ban on extreme porn took effect in 2009.

Here's that link:


Don't know what our friends across the pond think of all this. Of course, many bloggers just like to spank, but for those who engage in SM, it is a precautionary tale.

  2. painspleasure: I am surprised there is not more controversy in the UK about these laws.

  3. There was at the time and there have been protests made since but it has made no difference. The sadness of it is i think it may well be that submissives that are genuinely abused or/and assulted under a so called dominant will stay quiet because of the potential repurcussions.

    Its like we are going backwards rather than moving forwards and be accepting of people choices.
