Thorn Birds author passes

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Colleen McCullough has passed at the age of 77. She wrote multiple genres. She wrote for money.   She made fucking piles of money. She wrote well and was never precious about it. She suffered from disabilities but never tried to pass as some kind of author saint. She was so real.

Colleen McCullough absolutely rocked for her entire life from beginning to end and the world is worse off for losing her.

No female ejaculation please, we're British

So British-made pornography makers have just been issued with a list of things they may no longer portray.

Female ejaculation or facesitting
Spanking or caning or whipping that is "not gentle" (a.k.a. "the English vice")
Fisting or penetration by any object "associated with violence"
Urine play
Breath restriction
All verbal abuse even if consensual

Because these are all obviously... things. Um, things that people shouldn't do or be seen doing because... um, well one or two indicate a women being aroused. So that's obviously... bad?And then there's inserting things other than penis's that clearly ... um.

Then there is things that might seem violent that are not permitted even between consenting people because that might undicate that people can make their own decisions.

And some fetish stuff (specifically some fetishes especially common in the UK) because fetishes are obviously.... and the way to undermine domination fetishes is clearly to be really strict and authoritarian.

Yeah.

Way to go guys.
