I must apologise for my absence here. I've resisted mixing my politics with my porn up until now but I feel the time has come to bring this to the attention of anyone who is interested in what I've been up to and why I do what I do. I can assure you I have been nothing but busy being active in all things adult business even if I've not been shooting for Real Couples. I can assure you that we have plenty couples ready and raring to go when I do get back into shooting. I still have updates to come but things have been uncertain in recent months with the new changes in the law. While I think most of it doesnt apply to me its still an indicator that they are coming, not just for me but for everyone in porn, even the amateur enthusiasts since the law effectively targets all producers of adult content. It's been interesting observing the changes as they happen but I won't bore you with the details. I have the Naked Truth Podcast for that. If you are interested I will be focussing more attention in that area as I have with The Real Couples Podcast and in the last two weeks, The Ben Dover Podcast Show: Aged & Confused. You might notice that Ben Dover has joined the same Real Sex Pass network of sites, so all you fans of Ben Dover can mosey on over and get Ben, Real Couples and all the other sites in the network for the price of one signup.
I was also at that face sitting protest outside Parliament on December the 1st which was run by Charlotte Rose @_Charlie_rose who is a sex worker and trainer running for MP. Sex & Censorship seemed to be the only campaign speaking out against the blatant censorship and reining in of the adult sex business. The real danger of this is, as Myles Jackman@ObscenityLawyer coined the term: “Porn is the canary in the coal mine” meaning that it is the first freedom to go because it is in the forefront of free speech by virtue of it being at the centre of most peoples moral compass. Look beyond that and you can see the dangers that lay ahead with censorship. This means control of the internet and infringement of your privacy which they try to instill that fear in you all the time with the war on terrorism so yes, its a scary time indeed and porn is in the way of that control of the internet.
Without getting too much into it the government should run the country and stop interfering with peoples sexual habits or what they want to watch. Have a look at the video and if you feel strongly about it as I do then follow Charlotte Rose, Sex & Censorship and Myles Jackman.
Where do I fit in with this? I support them by doing what I do to help convey the message where I can via the videos and the podcasts. I actively support anyone who is doing something to defend, protect and promote our business in a positive light.
I've been in the centre of some arguments and every time I paused to weigh up the relevance of those arguments I arrived at the same conclusion that most of attacks on the sex business are simply because people do not know much about the porn business. Left to their own thoughts it's a dark ugly world we inhabit and that thought is conveyed right up the ladder to administrative government quangoes like ATVOD and OFCOM trying to regulate the internet under the guise of protecting the children and have no idea of how this business works so they impose their will by their poorly tought out regulations and order us to obey rules that are totally unworkable for business like outlawing a slew of sexual acts designed to disrupt and destroy the adult business while allowing the rest of the world to go unregulated because its outside of their legal jurisdiction.
Hows that protecting children from seeing porn when they can see it for free on tube sites that don't have any age verification controls beyond an admission to click on a button stating you are over 18?
Making sex acts like face sitting, dirty talking and squirting illegal is like preventing a chef from using certain ingredients in the kitchen to cook a tasty meal.
Having spent many years in this business and 10 years on Real Couples it was a no brainer that I would get involved with the various campaigns to oppose the new legislation. If we don;t then the adult business will decline further than it is now and if opportunists with alternative means think they'll clean up, they should consider that this legislation is set up to outlaw that too so do get involved now before its too late. It was complacency and the belief that this law was so ridiculous that it would never happen that allowed it to slip through so stay alert and watch this space for more info if you want to get involved and show your support.
The protest on Parliament did get attention and positive press. Julian Huppert MP put in a motion to get the new laws annulled and ATVOD hassaid since that face sitting is OK but this is not enough to placate those who are against the act. We want the law repealed. The laws should be brought in line to recognise the changes in attitude and lifestyle today, not the Obscene Publications Act (OPA) that was set up for Lady Chatterleys Lover and Nabokovs Lolita back in the 50′s…Its 2015 and here we are still defending sexual civil liberties.
Believe me, I never saw myself doing this campaigning and protesting stuff but here I am because I believe it has to be done if I am to continue my business of producing porn. What kind of scenes will I be shooting if I had to tell couples a whole list of things they can and can't do? Fans of the content will know that this is simply unworkable.
DEFEND YOUR WANKING RIGHTS! DEFEND YOUR SEXUAL FREEDOM!
On another note, November is the month when adult video producers slow down productions and the parties and events begin. This year has been like party central. The biggest highlights were The Paul Raymond Awards which had an impressive turnout at The Spearmint Rhino. No night is complete without the usual protest from OBJECT banging on about #takedownfaketaxi using it as a tool to promote unlicensed taxis and rapists. As per usual theyve got it all twisted and fail to see its called Fake Taxi because its not a real taxi service.
An equally swish night and more intimate affair was the TVX Babes launch party to promote their song “Coming For Christmas” which is a cheeky play on words for the festive season with some hot TVX babes Angel Long (she was on Real Couples 10 years ago), Victoria Summers, Jess West and the lead singer of the song Brooklyn Blue. The aim of this song with Porn Hub Records was to be the Christmas number one which I thought would've been a nice change to Band Aid 30 I thought it was really well produced and guess what? Its got that geezer Ben Dover banging the drums in it too! Not that you'd notice for all the pretty totty in it.
See? I told you I've been busy and this ain't half of it.
