back to article Isle of Man plays catch-up on extreme porn law

Just when you thought everything had gone quiet on the extreme porn front, up it pops once more. This time, it’s the Isle of Man doing its best to save us all from unnatural vice, and demonstrating in the process the oddly fractured nature of law-making in the British Isles. The Isle of Man, along with the Channel Islands is not …

Yet another reason

To avoid the place. Though to be honest those bloody three-legged monster things that apparently roll around the countryside there were enough to scare me away in the first place.

It's okay

I've got my leather boots, and Jeans ready for when the Christian psychopaths in charge of our country want us to march on the unclean and the heretical.

How much of the tory front bench belong to a fringe Christian chapter of the party? Just so I know if I should polish my stomping boots? Also whether I should step up creating the image of a well adjusted heterosexual vanilla sex person that only has sex as a utilitarian step towards furthering the nation/religion/party agenda by increasing loyal population.

As bad as Scotland then

I live in Scotland, and after being told that taking photos of kids trespassing in my garden could be classed as "harrassing behaviour" if their moomies complained (big fecking surprise,soft on crime, soft on criminals, blame the innocent), despite making it clear it would be simply to be able to show the cops the faces of the little scrotes.

I wrote to complain to the justice minister and got the biggest pile of waffle back from his lackey, phoning said lackey got the biggest pile of crap spouted about "need to protect kids" and my local MP and MSP are no help as they are both SNP also

Tories just as bad (Ted Brocklebank you are a t*sser and a spineless one at that), labour didn't bother answering any letters and the lib dems are HOPELESS

Also wrote about the idiocy of criminalising naturism and got a letter from another lackey claiming no change being made and a letter contradicting that by basically saying that "nudity will be presumed to be a sexual offence on the view of the complainer" so the usual prudes go to a nude beach, phone the rozzers and get to scream "PEEDO PEEDO" to the papers.

This country sucks, I'm glad I plan to leave....Perhaps it would have been better if Britain had been subsumed into the US.....at least in a few states the attitude seems to be, "no where near you, dont like it...dont look"

Also liked NZ court ruling which said being walking naked around your house even with curtains open is fine, people shouldnt be looking in your windows.

Unlike Scotland where people have been arrested for it

Scotland....Welcome to the christian Iran

Um

The cartoon is the same one for both links - even the link is identical. Just so you know. Which you clearly did and now I've ruined it.

Bugger.

An innocent youth asks...

What the hell is "indirect sex", and why is it only illegal with a human corpse whereas (by implication) sex with an animal carcass is illegal only if it is direct?

Change the record

Typical tabloid comment that the IoM gave up birching 'recently'.

That's like saying recently, the X-Files had it's first UK broadcast, recently Jurassic Park and Indecent Proposal were first screened in the UK, recently anti-racist were held across London in response to criminal charges being dropped against two youths accused of murdering black teenager Stephen Lawrence.

Given you live in Scotland, I would have thought you would be completely aware that there is no such thing as trespass in Scottish law.

As long as the person causes no damage whilst crossing your property, you have no case. If they damage something, then you'd go after them for a criminal damage proceeding.

@ Ken Hagan

I was going to ask too, Ken.

Can any of El Reg's oh-so-erudite commentards tell us WTF "indirect sex with a human corpse" actually means?

And do we get a Playmobile reconstruction?

WTF?

Ummm...

Extreme porn covers BDSM so what happens when the police turn with handcuffs and the arrestee becomes aroused?

Yeah but, but yeah........... Yeah but..............

Liberties are being taken away from every area of our life,

in the name of 'protection' as always.

If we don't watch out people, we will nod our way into the gas chambers.

RE:@ Ken Hagan

Its a sexual act resulting from badly drafted laws baning things that don't even make sense.

I demand the banning of vacume shlobing! It is also an evil and non-sensicle made up thing! Oh, and also this cake drug I hear all the kids are taking!

@EvilGav

Actually the "no trespass laws in Scotland" is an urban myth, you can be easily be charged for refusing to leave property / making a nuisance of yourself / breaching the peace / playing others in a state of fear / alarm / attempted burglary / loitering with intent to commit burglary and many other charges. Also being in someone else's garden without a valid reason especially after dark will have you answering difficult questions from the cops IF they catch you.

Source for that is the consultation on the right to roam bill, where that point was covered in detail.

I can forgive the Manx almost anything...

...just as long as the white circular sign with the black diagonal bar continues to mean what it does over there :-)

A title is required and must contain letters or digits

"indirect" sex with a human corpse - perhaps it when you mastibate outside a morturay or as a funeral prosession passes by. I'll be arrested when Paris Hilten passes away.

WTF?

SO I guess lambskin condoms are outlawed?

"widening the definition of extreme porn to include ... and sex with the carcass of an animal."
