Yep....All because of this...:
I've only just been made aware of this, via a friend who told me that Nikki Whiplash is about to take down all of her sites, due to a new law in the UK that comes in effect on 1st Dec.
Nikki tweeted yesterday;
"Facesitting, headscissoring and breath play content becomes prohibited for sale in the UK as of December 1st 2014."
It took some digging to find out the source of the new laws, and it appears to be all about the new European Audio Visual Media Services Directive; https://melonfarmers.wordpress.com/category/atvod-vod-censor/
From what it appears, the entire UK adult industry could be impacted, in terms of how stringent the age verification process for the sale of such material would need to be. With specific regard to our interest, the list of prohibited content does include;
- the portrayal of sexual activity which involves real or apparent lack of consent. Any form of physical restraint which prevents participants from indicating a withdrawal of consent
Now, whether this could be interpreted as a femdom (or indeed any mixed wrestling/facesitting video) wherein the victim is being dominated, it's hard to say. Common sense says no, but this law doesn't seem to be based on anything approaching common sense.
Nikki apparently considers it serious enough to essentially close her business. Whether this will have further reaching effects remains to be seen.
