Now Peachez was operating legally with a SEV Lecense issued from the Council back in October 2017 as there were no indications of any illegality and as followers of the blog know you cannot apply moral judgements on venues. Now the councillors
Phil Davies and Jean Stapleton decided to use planning laws to close the venue by declaring it as unsuitable for the location. So Peachez appealed and the national planning inspectorate had to make a decision on if the club was suitable. And this
is where it gets exciting and has much wider impact. Well the directorate has ruled in far of the club and it said it creates a positive impact on the night time economy.
Nepal's Government will soon ban porn sites in the country. The Ministry of Communication and Information technology (MOCIT) has instructed the internet censor, the NTA, to ban porn websites and any other sexually offensive/indecent content.
The government cited an increase in the rate of rape incident in the country as the reason fir the censorship. It also claims that the easy sexual content access increases sexual violence in the country.
The ministry also requests all the ISPs, telecom operators, social media operators, and Internet users not to distribute, publish and broadcast such sexual content in the country.
Some popular porn sites have been blocked for some years. Whereas some websites are still operating freely.
Attempting to read a censored websites leads to a page simply saying: This website has been blocked as per NTA's Policy.
The often contentious subject of pornography is explored in a new book, which seeks to contribute to the ever developing academic debate on this topic.
The book, Pornographies: Critical Positions is published by the University of Chester Press.
The book is also a milestone in academic writings on this topic, as it marks the shift towards studying pornography beyond the idea that it is simply a manifestation of dangerous patriarchal oppression and provides valuable insights into
contemporary culture and politics, and our ideas about gender, sexuality and bodies.
The volume has been edited by Dr Katherine Harrison, Senior Lecturer in Media at Leeds Beckett University; and Dr Cassandra Ogden, Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Liverpool John Moores University.
Dr Katherine Harrison said:
Pornography is no longer considered to be a single, homogenous 'thing'. Nor are debates about pornography limited to the reductive anti-porn versus anti-censorship controversies of the mid-20th century. Whether we like it or not, porn is a major
part of global culture, economy and society and -- if only by that virtue alone -- deserves to be studied seriously. The Internet is ubiquitous in our everyday lives and its significances and effects are widely studied on Social Sciences
degrees. However, one of the major uses of the Internet is the production, dissemination and consumption of pornography and this is rarely studied directly at undergraduate level. The book aims to address this omission by making the academic
study of pornography accessible to readers at all levels. It is worth noting that one of the contributors, Professor Feona Attwood, is Founding Editor of Routledge's international journal Porn Studies , the pre-eminent publication for porn
research and scholarship in the world.
The Biennial of International Performance Art and Noise took place in Croydon recently with an array of bizarre sex toys and avant-garde performers. The festival programme explained:
Always sculptural and gracefully schizophrenic, each sex toy will embrace a different mood, from poignant to playful. The actions and objects are designed to enrapture rather than repel, in an effort to demystify the anus.
One performance, by Arianna Ferrari, saw the artist taking laxatives and lying down on stage. She then urinated and defecated uncontrollably in a display supposedly meant to allow the body to manifest itself. During the display, she had a
microphone attached to her belly so the sound of her bowel movements could be blared out.
Another performance by Joseph Ravens - who once appeared on TV's America's Got Talent - involved multiple butt plugs.
Arts Council England, which is funded by the lottery, paid out £38,000 to support the event . And Croydon Council added another £10,000 in funding for the festival.
James Price of the Taxpayers' Alliance whinged to The Sun:
Croydon council, like councils across the country, have raised council tax year on year, and now we can see where some of that money is going.
Turin authorities closed a new sex doll brothel after just nine days citing hygiene concerns and other offences. All eight of the dolls have been seized for forensic examination by the authorities.
Until its sudden closure on Wednesday, LumiDolls in Torino, northwestern Italy charged clients Euro 80 ($90) for 30 minutes of alone time with the hyper realistic dolls which cost roughly 2,000 euro each..
Authorities are concerned over hygiene at the establishment and also insufficient information on the materials the dolls were made from and their country of manufacture. The brothel owners claim that they clean the dolls for two hours once a
client has finished with them.
Police are also fishing around for other offences, whether the brothel breached Italian laws on renting out accommodation and alleged but unspecified illegal activity.
LumiDolls franchise began in Spain and boasts sex doll brothels in Barcelona and Moscow.
