Porn quotas...

Canada seems to be demand that the likes of Pornhub in Canada carries 35% Canadian content


Link Here26th June 2022
The text of a new amendment to the Canadian Broadcasting Act demanding a set percentage of Canadian content on platforms available nationwide definitely also applies to adult content, according to regulatory experts.

The amendment, Bill C-11, fails to clarify exactly how the Canadianness of a porn scene or piece of OnlyFans content should be determined. The bill has already passed in the House of Commons, and moves to the Senate.

The bill required that the likes of Netflix, YouTube and even Instagram will soon be forced to subject their content to Canada's famously onerous strictures on Canadian content.

Peter Menzies, a former Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) vice chair who now opposes the bill -- has asserted that online porn will almost certainly fall within the bill's purview:

The final decision regarding who's in and who's out is to be made in a future CRTC hearing, but it's difficult to imagine Commissioners giving Pornhub and its many hours of user-generated content an exemption.

The CRTC has previously regulated erotic channels broadcast in Canada, including XXX Action Clips and the gay-oriented Maleflixxx, to ensure that at least 35% of their adult content was Canadian, or the equivalent of 8.5 hours of Canadian porn per day.

Under the current mandatory system for TV, content creators must file detailed budgets with the CRTC to prove minimum quotas of Canadian actors, Canadian crew and even the quantity of production costs that were verifiably spent in Canada.

 

 

Impossible contracts...

Japanese lawmakers consider enabling adult performers to cancel any film that they have contracted to, at any time, and for any reason


Link Here15th June 2022
A legislative debate about lowering the age of legal majority in Japan has quickly devolved into a sensationalist campaign about adult performers aged 18-19. It has now morphed into a proposed new law under which anyone who signs a contract to appear in pornographic productions could void that contract at any time for any reason.

Japanese newspaper The Mainichi published a lengthy account allegedly based on two anonymous women's experiences of abuse in the Japanese adult industry.

The report did not identify any specific companies or directors behind the accounts of labor and sexual abuses but it does seem have spurred a group of lawmakers into pushing for some proposals that would make it impossible for the adult trade to continue.

The newspaper then extolled the bill proposed by a bipartisan group of lawmakers which not only allows people who agree to appear in pornographic content to terminate their contracts, but also requires video vendors in such cases to recover the products and delete the footage. Mainichi explained that this novel law also mandates that a month must pass between the signing of the contract and the filming of the video, and four months between the filming of the video and its public release.

The original debate concerned amending a law lowering the age of majority by extending additional contract protections specifically to adult performers under 20 years of age. The lawmakers came up with the bill after Japan lowered the age of adulthood in April, making it no longer possible for 18- and 19-year-olds to cancel contracts to which they have agreed.

 

 

Help United Sex Workers protect worker's rights...

Stop Edinburgh Council from banning sex clubs

Full story: Lap Dancing in Edinburgh...Capital adult entertainment

United Sex Workers are crowd-funding to launch legal challenges against strip club bans across the UK, starting with a judicial review against Edinburgh City Council. We desperately need your help 203 any contributions you can offer will help us fight to keep our livelihoods afloat and our workplaces open.

Strip club bans violate workers' rights at a time of severe economic crisis. They form part of a wider attempt by the state to oppress precarious workers and dictate what women and other minorities can do with their bodies.

We **cannot** stop this without you, so please donate and share!

Background:

On the 31st March 2022, Edinburgh City Council voted in favor of a nil-cap on Sexual Entertainment Venue (known as SEVs) licenses - effectively shutting all Edinburgh strip clubs as of April 2023 and forbidding any new ones to open. The consequences of this for workers, including strippers, bar staff, and security, will be devasting.

This nil-cap is a result of one of the several SEV consultations that have taken place across the UK where workers' voices have been completely ignored. It leaves hundreds of precarious workers unemployed during a time of unprecedented financial insecurity and rising living costs.

Nil-caps are plainly unlawful as they discriminate against women and other marginalised groups, such as people with disabilities and migrants, who make up the majority of strippers. If Councils continue to adopt them, the consequences for workers across the UK will be devastating.

We have a legal team in place to challenge the nil-cap's compatibility with the Equality Act 2010 and are confident we will win. But we need your help!

 

 

Miserable Spain...

Spanish government and opposition unite to ban all forms of sex work including making porn

Full story: Sex Work in Spain...Debating the regularisation of prostitution

Spanish sex workers and adult industry figures are sounding the alarm about a proposed new law, supported by politicians from both the ruling and opposition parties, aiming to outlaw all forms of paid sex work -- including commercial pornography.

Last week, the ruling Spanish Socialist Workers' Party, known as PSOE, introduced a proposal for an "abolitionist law against sexual exploitation," something that had been included in the party's platform.

Prominent politicians within PSOE have taken up the abolition of sex work as their personal cause. These include the party's General Vice-Secretary Adriana Lastra, who last month took to the press to promote a change in the Spanish penal code to mandate up to three years of jail time for anyone paying for sex.

The proposed legislation would revive the crimes of "proxenetism," meaning pimping or pandering, and "tercerķa locativa " or brothel keeping. Both were removed from the penal code in 1995 by a previous Socialist administration.

Noted Swedish-Spanish adult filmmaker, producer and studio owner Erika Lust took to Twitter today to sound the alarm about the impending government attempt to ban all sex work, including adult performance. Lust tweeted:

This International Sex Workers Day, I want to take the opportunity to express my unconditional support to all sex performers currently based in Spain, where the government is once again threatening their safety with prohibitionist bills that claim to 'protect their rights'.
