Bondage aficionados in the UK are getting hammered hard by their politicians…it’s horrible to read about. Just was chatting with Hywel (apologies if I spelled that wrong) from Restrained Elegance (who do some WONDERFUL stuff, by the way!) about it…here’s a snippet:

To use a UK term…bloody HELL. Ridiculous. BUT…you CAN film bondage in mainstream movies (girlfriend gets kidnapped by the bad guys, hero rescues her…you know the drill) with no problems…and it’s not illegal for a UK citizen to PURCHASE bondage via the net…but IS illegal for UK producers to MAKE it. WTF?!
Like I said to them on Twitter: The politicians in the UK need to get laid. 😛
I just can’t fathom it. The archaic nature of it all…bondage and the sexualization of it has been around for a VERY long time and no set of laws are gonna stop it; it’s ludicrous to think that they can stop this from happening. In the meantime, my heart goes out to my friends across the pond…Restrained Elegance, Bondage Bob, Jasmine Sinclair (of BoundHoneys.com…and who needs to visit Tucson, AZ; just saying. :P), James Bertoni, Bound by Bhowani and the many multitudes of others…hang strong, this WILL go the way of American prohibition of liquor in it’s own time.
Anyway. Soapbox removed.
Cobie’s stuff on C4S has been VERY well received…my store broke the Top 30 Bondage stores this week ( 🙂 ) and her appearances are in no doubt a part of that. She’s also visiting the UK now and will be working with them soon…here’s some of my Cobie shoot. 🙂
