BACKLASH PRESS RELEASE: Embargoed to 12.01am Tuesday 4th October 2016

BACKLASH KINK OLYMPIXXX - CHANGING THE RULES FOR ADULT GAMES

SEXUAL LIBERTY CAMPAIGN CALLS FOR JOINT COMMITTEE ON SEX LAWS

BEGINS:

The feminist pornographer Pandora Blake and obscenity lawyer Myles Jackman have united civil liberties campaigners including the Open Rights Group and NO2ID in a protest against the risk posed to personal privacy and sexual freedom by the Digital Economy Bill currently before Parliament.

The Backlash Kink Olympixxx will feature surreal and satirical games including Fisting Volleyball, a Spanking Relay Race and Squirting Waterfight in a playful parody of the sexual acts that are legal to perform in real life, but illegal to represent, possess or publish under UK sex laws.

The Kink Olympixxx will be held outside Parliament between 12-2pm on Monday the 17th October 2016. There will be speeches from the organisers and civil liberties organisations including Backlash and the English Collective of Prostitutes.

Myles Jackman, an award-winning specialist in obscenity law, commented that:

“Whilst the Kink Olympixxx was conceived as a playful protest, the Digital Economy Bill poses a serious risk of users’ personal sexual preferences being leaked; will adversely affect sexual minorities’ ability to freely express their sexuality; and most frighteningly, imposes State censorship and surveillance of consensual adult sexual content in the UK.”

“Chinese State censors and surveillance agents will envy this Hadrian’s Firewall.”

Pandora Blake, the feminist pornographer and sexual liberty campaigner, added that:

“The Digital Economy Bill will introduce compulsory age verification for all adult content without any measures to safeguard the privacy of web users. Consensual adult sex should not be criminalised, yet this Bill will prohibit the publication of depictions of sexual activities that are legal to perform.”

“We are calling for a Joint Committee on Adult Liberty to update our retrograde sex laws.”

ENDS.
