A protest is due to take place at Westminster on Friday against a recent decision to ban certain types of porn from UK production.

Brought in by the Audiovisual Media Services regulation 2014 last week, the ban states that any online paid-for porn such as Video on Demand (VoD) must adhere to the same rules set out for those producing DVDs.

Those rules are set out by the British Board of Film Censors (BBFC), and ban producers from depicting acts such as fisting, female ejaculation and face-sitting in porn for paid consumption.

The #PornProtest, as well as protesting the new rules, will also aim to break the Guinness World Record for “face-sitting”. Lib Dem MP Julian Huppert MP is to put forward a motion to throw out the changes.

Meanwhile a “Sex Factor” game show will take place.

All protest actions will take place with fully-clothed participants. It was organised by Sex Worker of the Year 2013 Charlotte Rose, who deemed the ban “sexist”, and as having taken away “personal liberties.”
