lovedoll ukA business selling sex dolls has been fined over its try before you buy scheme. Lovedoll UK, was allowing potential customers a first hand experience of their product using a bedroom on its premises. The dolls cost up to 2,000 and the try before you buy option is 50.

The company's owner was fined 10,000 at Gateshead Magistrates' Court. A massive fine for a victimless crime that is many times more than for some violent crimes that have hit the headlines this week

Gateshead Council workers visited the company's premises after claims that it was a sex doll brothel. They claimed that such a use would require a sex establishment licence, which had neither been sought nor granted.

Germany is considering making state-funded feminist porn and broadcasting it to the public to combat porn stereotypes.

The material, which would include fat, skinny, young and old people will be available on the websites of public broadcasters ARD and ZDF, if the idea goes ahead.

The proposal was voted on by Angela Merkel's social-democratic SDP coalition partners at a general assembly in Berlin. The delegates accepted a proposal from their youth wing to adopt the idea of government-funded feminist pornography for educational purposes as part of their party programme.

In the proposal, the SPD wrote: Mainstream porn generally shows sexist and racial stereotypes in which consent is not a theme and certain "optimal" body types are made as standard. In these films, sex seems more like a performance or competitive sport: everything seems to work right away, there is no communication between the performers, no trying out, failure and trying out new things.

The SPD also proposes that German broadcasters ARD and ZDF buy some of those movies and offer them on their online media libraries.

 Obituary: Peter Stringfellow...

Now in the lap of the gods


Link Here 8th June 2018
stringfellowsPeter Stringfellow, noted lap dancing club owner, has died aged 77 of lung cancer.

He started his career is nightclub management in 1962 in Sheffield. He started by renting St. Aidan's Church Hall in Sheffield every Friday night, operating the Black Cat Club, booking some notable bands at the time. He worked his way upwards with ever bigger nightclubs featuring ever more famous bands.

n 1986, he opened Stringfellow's New York which was frequented by New York celebrities. In 1989, he opened Stringfellow's Miami, and then Stringfellow's  Los Angeles in 1990.

In 1990, Stringfellow introduced table dancing to his New York club with a licensing deal with Michael J. Peters. This became Stringfellow's Presents Pure Platinum. In 1996, Cabaret of Angels, a table-side dancing club was opened for three nights a week at Stringfellow's Covent Garden.

In 2006, Stringfellow opened his second adult entertainment club named Angels in Wardour Street, Soho. He was the first club owner to gain a fully nude licence from Westminster City Council. In 2009, he criticised the Policing and Crime Act 2009, saying the licensing changes with regards to lap dancing were unnecessary and he would be appealing to the European Court of Human Rights if his current licences were not renewed.

In 2012, he was granted the necessary Sexual entertainment venues (SEV) Licence for Stringfellow's Covent Garden and Angels Soho, and was able to successfully market Angels as providing rooms for the entertainment in privacy of young women in lingerie.

Stringfellow's Covent Garden is still operating and will continue to feature table side dancing.

Americans grow ever more tolerant of pornography, especially those identifying as Democrats


Link Here 6th June 2018
us democratic party logoA new Gallop poll has been published surveying the opinions of Americans on the subject of pornography.

For the first time, a majority of Democrats do not have moral qualms about pornography. The poll found that 53%t of Democrats see pornography as morally acceptable, an 11 point spike from last year and the biggest jump since Gallup began taking the survey in 2011.

Across a number of issues related to sexuality and sex, Americans have been adopting a more permissive viewpoint.

The percentage of all Americans who view pornography as morally acceptable jumped 7% this year to 43%. Previously the supportive fraction has risen only one or two percentage points each year.

Republican acceptance of pornographic material has also increased but remains relatively low at 27%.

 Commented: Sham Inquiry from the self-appointed partisan UK Parliamentary Group on Prostitution...

The MPs should jail themselves for causing prostitution by legislating for crap economic prospects for people


Link Here 24th May 2018
home affairs committeeA self-appointed group of MPs, that got together for the sole purpose of lobbying for the criminalisation of sex workers' clients, conduct Inquiry and recommend the criminalisation of clients! No surprise there then.

Cari Mitchell, spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes, commented:

Criminalisation, whether of sex workers or clients, drives prostitution further underground, increasing stigma, discrimination and the risk of violence.

In Ireland, reported incidences of violent crime against sex workers have risen by almost 50%. In France, a two-year evaluation of the law found 42% of sex workers are more exposed to violence and 38% have found it increasingly hard to demand use of condom. In Norway, despite claims that sex workers have been decriminalised, forced evictions, prosecutions and increased stigma are prevalent with migrant workers particularly targeted. One sex worker explained:

Before we did not go far with the customer: we would go to a car park nearby. But now the customer wants to go somewhere isolated because they are afraid. I don't like it. There is more risk that something bad happens.

As for Sweden, the poster child for laws criminalising clients: 63% of sex workers said the law has created more prejudice; plus, there is no convincing empirical evidence that the law has resulted in a decline in sex work in Sweden, which was the law's principal ambition.

The other "revelation" from the APPG is that there has been an increase in prostitution. Ms Mitchell commented:

Blaming the internet for a prostitution "boom" puts the APPG in the same camp as Ian Duncan Smith, who notably attributed the increase in people going to food banks on growing " awareness " of food banks.

If the APPG is truly interested in reducing prostitution why isn't their headline recommendation the abolition of benefit sanctions, directly linked with the rise in prostitution, especially on the street? It seems the APPG is more taken with the sensationalised, sexed-up story of pop-up brothels. Sex workers feel exploited and not by prostitution.

If well-meaning MPs want to save women from sex work then take action against zero-hour contracts, low wages and exploitative bosses in the jobs that are the alternatives to prostitution. Support sex workers like we hope you support other workers fighting to improve pay and conditions.

As for the proposal to clamp down on online advertising, evidence from the US shows that such laws (SESTA and FOSTA) make it harder for the police to identify violence.

Why did this Inquiry even need to happen? The prestigious cross-party Home Affairs Committee did a comprehensive Inquiry and recommended that sex workers on the street and working together in premises be decriminalised.

Decriminalisation isn't perfect -- we are all going to have to put our shoulder to the wheel if we want to win a fairer and more humane society, but it removes a grave injustice suffered daily by sex workers. Thousands of cis and trans women a year are arrested, given prostitute cautions, are victims of criminal charges or civil orders and are suffering other grievous abuse and being denied protection. Decriminalisation as introduced in New Zealand has improved sex workers' working conditions and made it easier for those who want to get out, to do so. Over 90% of sex workers said they had additional employment, legal, health and safety rights (including 64.8% who said they found it easier to refuse clients -- a key marker of exploitation).

Finally, on trafficking. Until there is a public apology for the fabricated statistics  that claimed that 80% of sex workers are victims of trafficking, why should anyone believe this APPG's figures? Research from the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women found that criminalising sex workers' clients does not reduce sex work or trafficking. Instead, it infringes on sex workers' rights and obstructs anti-trafficking efforts.

Offsite Comment: Wrong to suggest criminalising the buying of sex

22nd May 2018. See article from metro.co.uk by Miranda Kane

metro newspaper logoGood to see a supportive opinion piece in the Metro:

Another day, another flurry of media and morality where the world is convinced sex trafficking is around every corner.

This time it's courtesy of a group of self appointed MPs who make up the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Prostitution and the Global Sex Trade.

Spoilers 203 none of them are, or ever have been, actual sex workers. (As far as I know.)

letter writingComment: Agency deniers

24th May 2018. From Alan

Great article by the Metro journalist.

What baffles me is the way this shower of politicians, many of whom self-define as feminists, want to deny agency to women, as do many feminist journalists e.g. Bennett, Ellen, Moore, Bindel (whos so rabid a rad fem that when I first encountered her I thought the piece was a satirical parody). Zoe Williams in the Graun, to her credit, did collaborate with Pandora Blake, but in the main they seem quite oblivious to reason. Confront them with, say, Max Ms lady friend who continued to work as a pro submissive, and occasional dome, after getting her Ph.D. and the silly buggers just ignore the evidence.

 

 Updated: Sin City 8...

An event in Las Vegas hoping to capture the world record for the largest orgy


Link Here 23rd May 2018
sin city 8 logoLas Vegas is playing host to a swingers' event hoping to claim a listing in the Guinness Book of Records for the world's largest orgy..

Sin City 8 is a complete takeover of the Embassy Suites hotel in Las Vegas turning it into a weekend of sex romps with different themes, contests and parties. One of the main events is an attempt at breaking the world record for the biggest orgy, which is currently claimed by Japan when 500 people all did the deed at once.

The event on June 2 has 1,000 people confirmed and expects more than 600 participants to show up and get it on.

To help facilitate the fun, a bunch of amenities are provided:

  • 22 queen size beds
  • designated areas for cuddle pillow piles
  • yoga mats available for use
  • over 2,000 condoms
  • lube, baby wipes, tissues, towels
  • bottled water
  • breath fresheners
  • roaming supply carts

There will also be multiple orgy monitors and an orgy concierge that will patrol in the thick of it and make sure that all participants are comfortable and consensual.

The theme of the party is masquerade masks and an Eyes Wide Shut type atmosphere.

Update: Moved on

23rd May  2018. See  article from lasvegasweekly.com

erotic-heritage-museumThe scheduled attempt to break the world's record for largest orgy will move from Embassy Suites on Swenson Street to the Erotic Heritage Museum.

We're guessing the reason was was that Hilton, the corporate owner of Embassy Suites, ultimately balked at having one of its properties host a Caligula-blushing assemblage of swinging couples.

According to today's news release, Erotic Heritage Museum Executive Director Dr. Victoria Hartmann will conduct a qualitative research project during the orgy to help fill holes in the study of the evolution of group sex.

The remainder of the Sin City 8 program, featuring seminars and pool parties, will still be held at Embassy Suites.
