back to article Show more CANADIAN-MADE PORN, insists Canadian government

Canada's official broadcasting regulator has demanded that adult TV channels show more domestically-produced porn, saying that a flood of foreign smut is dominating their output. It seems that Canadian regulations require that 35 per cent of programming on any TV channel must be produced beneath the maple-leaf banner, and …

    Actually, Canada produces a LOT of "special-interest" smut:

    For those into interracial lesbians there's the "Mabel and Brown Sugar" series.

    For those who prefer gay males there's "Man-to-Manitoba".

    For those into sex during a woman's period there's "Maple Leaf Rag".

    For those of a conservative bent (*ahem*) there's the "Northwest Tarry-Tories"

    ...And, of courses, they classic "Poutine Poontang" series.

    perhaps it might be more appropriate for this sort of channel to cater for people with impaired vision and have a requirement for an audio description version of the channel

    The Quebecóis captions

    Are just the same loop of ooohs and aaarhs but with more accents. (And also the occasional mention of 'gros seins' but I wouldn't know about that.)

    And does a French maid count at all towards meeting this quota??

    - Allo madmoiselle, ah av come to fix ze washing machine

    Unfortunately, I can't watch those Calgon ads on TV without thinking about tacky porn films. In my mind the dialogue (translated from German, I guess) would go something like "there's your problem right there! I'm going to have to whip it out ..." (and so on)

    Dear Sir,

    I wish to complain on the strongest possible terms about the previous entry in this file about the lumberjack who wears womens' clothes. Some of my best friends are lumberjacks, and only a FEW of them are transvestites.

    Yours faithfully,

    Does anyone know to whom is attributed the saying that there aren't more orgies in Canada because it would take too long to write the thank-you notes afterwards?

    No, they don't happen because we can't decide if they're a federal or provincial responsibility.

    Re: What's canadian porn?

    Technically, we don't know whether a polar bear's fuckstick is terribly impressive. Sometimes it's just not all that, even when you think, hey, big, tough animal - and then it's like, "pwing", and, omg wut lol!

    Then, sometimes, it's even more impressive than it ought to be; you think, "Yeah, I know what to expect - this is an elephant, he's gonna have a OH MY GOD IT'S PREHENSILE".

    We Canadians have a Constitution; we don't ban much unlike Blighty

    Thanks to the late Pierre Trudeau, Canada has a Constitution that keeps governments in line. Really.

    But this little fracarse is all about Canadian content.

    It's not onerous: Broadcasting Act of Canada, that radio and television broadcasters (including cable and satellite specialty channels) must air a certain percentage of content that was at least partly written, produced, presented, or otherwise contributed to by persons from Canada. It also refers to that content itself, and, more generally, to cultural and creative content that is Canadian in nature.

    Even if the dollies are from another country, the CanCon can be met by the written, produced, presented part of the rules.

    The important word is MAPL. Canadian content in a musical selection must generally fulfill at least two of the following conditions:

    M (music) - the music is composed entirely by a Canadian.

    A (artist) - the music is, or the lyrics are, performed principally by a Canadian.

    P (performance) - the musical selection consists of a performance that is: recorded wholly in Canada, or performed wholly in Canada and broadcast live in Canada.

    L (lyrics) - the lyrics are written entirely by a Canadian.

    There is even a MAPL, a clever play on Maple (tree), logo which will be seen on all records and videos which shows how CanCon rules are met.

    Australia, Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria, Israel, South Africa, Jamaica, Venezuela, and New Zealand, Republic of Ireland and France also have quotas.

    So bring on the girls from the Miramichi, or the wild women from The Rock (Newfoundland).

    I've a Canadian friend who might do well out of this. His parents, Mr and Mrs Harder, named him Randy. It wasn't until he started meeting Brits that he knew they had given him a porn name. Apparently randy doesn't have the same meaning over that side of the pond .

    Too damn cold

    There's a reason why this stuff is filmed in sunny california mainly. Or are they gonna make them fully clothed in lumpy layers upon layers of goretex and down?

    Re: Too damn cold

    Surely most porn is filmed indoors anyway. I wonder if Canada requires condoms in porn. If not, this might be a good opportunity for displaced L.A. porn stars.
