Porn protest takes place in central London
12th December 2014

People working in the adult entertainment industry have staged a protest in Westminster today over changes to porn laws.

From December it became illegal to include a number of activities in paid for online sex films. So in protest, a mass ‘face-sitting’ took place where the campaigners recreated some of the sexual positions, fully clothed, in public.

The government says the move means website and shop bought videos now face the same restrictions, to crack down on what they've called ‘harmful' content.

Acts now banned include spanking and strangulation. Campaigners have accused Ministers of pushing the new law through without telling the public, and threatening freedom of expression.
