Angry News Sex Videos

I'm getting really shameless with my post titles lately. It cracks me up how well it works as well. You may well notice how often my "Virgin worship, Anal Sex and Oral Sex" post shows up in the "Top Posts" section. I don't think this is because of the number of people who want to hear my views on sexual repression in the name of religion.

Without it being premeditated, I seem to have been doing a few videos this week on the topic of sex. And the law. But it's more attention grabbing to say I'm making sex videos.

This first video is about the cops in Sydney busting most of the sex shops in Kings Cross - Sydney's notorious red light district. Something a lot of people may not be aware of: hardcore or X-rated porn is illegal almost everywhere in Australia, including Sydney. Apparently we aren't adult enough to deal with images of adults having sex. The thing is, the law basically hasn't been enforced for about 20 years.

"Adult" shops have been selling porn for ages. For a while, the sold it out of "secret" back rooms but that didn't last long and it hasn't seemed to be a problem that they sell illegal porn pretty much out in the open. Now the media have been reporting that the cops launched raids on most of the sex shops in Kings Cross because they were selling kiddie porn. The fact that there is an election coming up probably has nothing to do with the police actions.

If I was living in Sydney I could probably find out if the cops really did find any child porn. I'm sure they'd sell me some if I asked. The NSW police - the best force that money can buy.

This second video is highlighting that there is actually some sanity in the US legal system. A judge has recently thrown out a lawsuit brought by some parents against MySpace. Apparently their 13 year old daughter lied about her age, hooked up with someone via MySpace ran away from home to meet him and was sexually assaulted. An appalling turn of event but it seems the parents didn't feel like taking care of their daughter was their responsibility. Because MySpace didn't take enough care of their daughter they felt compelled to sue.

There's nothing I take more seriously than the safety of my kids. That's why I take care of them myself, I don't expect a fucking web site to look after them.
