CNN: 'Face-sitting' protest held over UK porn censorship law

http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/12/world/europe/uk-porn-protest/

But to spare onlookers' blushes (and a potential brush with the law), those taking part in what was dubbed the #PornProtest on Twitter remained fully clothed.

***

One of the protest organizers is Charlotte Rose, winner of the UK sex worker of the year title in 2013 and a free-speech advocate.

She told CNN that the bill could be perceived as being sexist because the banning of certain acts appears to target women's sexual enjoyment.

"This is about censorship, and what the government is doing is they're censoring our consent -- so yes, it does affect women, but it also affects every man and every woman," she said. "It affects anybody who enjoys these particular activities."




While Drinking tea. How Very British.

15. I'm just not sure what the British are thinking, or if they even understand how the internet works.

Maybe they're bored?

6. Just as an aside...

I actually got the Prince Albert prank call to work once. Of course, I probably tried it a dozen times that night, but at least I got one bite. Good times in Norman, Oklahoma, one of the greatest places on Earth.
