Pornography and Visual Sex

Freedom CAAN Feb 2009 - Michelle Scrivin 001

The impetus for the creation of CAAN was the Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill out of Westminster which sought to ban “extreme pornography”. Pornography and the visual representation of sex should be allowed provided that the participants and viewers are consenting adults. In Scotland, pornography and visual sex is still an area of debate.

The topic of “extreme pornography” was attacked in the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act. Visual sex is having its wrist slapped through the investigations into “lads mags”. Plain old-fashioned pornography is still legal, but these recent events show that it is prudent to remain vigilant to prevent further visual sexual rights from being eroded.
