The logical next step: Mandatory silicone implants when a girl turns 18 :(

Apparently the official Aussie censors board (or whatever) has decided to start rejecting any porn featuring small-breasts, on the grounds that obviously only a pedophile would find that attractive, or something.

And this hasn't got as much press, but apparently they're also down on female ejaculation. Why? Because it's "abhorrent".
I read about that recently. I keep trying to write some sort of rant about how completely insane and counterproductive it is, but I can't find the words to do it justice.

Update - It's not small breasts alone, it's people who are over 18, but still look like childeren. It takes more than small breasts to earn that title.

Also, they have no actual ruling of Female Ejaculation - only that golden showers are banned, along with other piss play, but the jury is out on if female ejaculate counts as piss play of any sort.

Yeah, I know. As I understand it, the story started with a press release from the Sex Party, who (while obviously healthy, right-thinking people) are not unbiased. Anyway, what they allege is that the censors had recently started putting excessive weight on breasts size (which is a really lousy measure of age) when determining the "apparent" age of models. Apparently they did specifically cite breast size as the reason certain pictures were unacceptable. Keep in mind that "children" just means under 18, so it really doesn't take that much for a person less than 25 or so fall under suspicion.

I admit I'm less clear about the exact nature of the squirting ban, if any.

The problem is that there is no actual measuring stick. It's only "People who appear to be childeren" - I suspect they're not talking about anyone who is just under 18, but appears more in the 13-16 sort of range - because what's the difference in look between someone who is 17 and someone who is 18? - however, the panels often do judge on breast size, this is true.

There is sort of a squirting ban, but it's a bit up in the air - it depends on if the panel of censors decides it's a golden shower or not.

Up next: all porn stars have to have a serial number tattooed on their breasts and vagina to show that they are legitimately 18 and over.

The thing is, it's apparent age that they seem to care about, not actual age. So the next logical step is to mandate that all porn stars get some sort of reverse face-lift to add wrinkles. May as well throw in some implants that make tits saggier while they're at it.

I am... disgusted. Not that people are trying to back up morality (the human species could do with the reminder), but rather the haphazard 'scattershot' tactics being employed, the borderline lunacy required for some of these of these laws to even be considered and the utter idiotic manner in which it's all being done. Don't get me wrong, there's some sick buggers out there who need to be tracked down, tazed and tagged at the very least, but is this really the way to make the world a safer place? By measuring apparent age by breast size?? If that's any way to judge, then my GF is several decades my mother's senior (not that I'm comparing, but Katey's pretty well endowed, no brag).

To sum up Infinity's policy, Kiddie porn and snuff is a no-no, but this is just disgustingly stupid. It'll do more harm than good, there's got to be a better way,surely.

For christ's sake, just don't pin this on the australian people - we're even more outraged than all the Americans and everyone else going "That's horrible and stupid!" because we have to put up with it. This is our government who have done this, and the nutcase evanglical christian at the top.

Seriously - he's like the Smiler, but with a religion. Crazy motherfucker.

Dude, did it seem like I was pinning it on the people at large? That's not what I meant, hells no! To my knowledge Aussies in general have a no-nonsense practicality about their thinking borne of the conditions the nation formed from.

They should do like the Discworld version of Australia does: cut out the middleman and have the politicians spend their terms in jail.

Ah, duly noted. It's way too easy to confuse people on forum's isn't it?

ffft. Yeah, welcome to the USA, circa 2002. Only "we" were too busy fightin' terrists to be going after a multi-billion dollar industry (porn). Yeah, the republicans sure like the religious whackjobs' votes, but when it comes to actually DELIVERING the christianist state they're voting for, kinda FAIL-ey. (because the god they serve is the money-god, truth be told) Lucky for the republican party, their christianist faction is kinda dumb. I think they still haven't caught on.

Things are a little better now, that the republicans are out of office (mostly), and every single thing they tried to accomplish has pretty much ended up in epic disaster. Hey, now it's YOUR country's turn to be the most hated country of asshats in the world. Yay!

Haha. I think the charges here are more concerned with bestiality. ;) Besides, having sex with a dead octopus is gross. Live octopi are more fun! :D

I know. All the same, I'm pretty sure an image fitting that description has crossed this board at some time or other. "Sex with a dead animal" sounds gross when you say it like that, but I suspect the people involved thought of the octopus more as prop than... partner. Some of the comments on that article raise the point, that it was probably purchased as a food item. So essentially it was just a picture of a woman "playing" with her food.
