Violent porn media to be illegal to possess in UK

The UK government is soon to pass legislation that would criminalise possession of certain types of "violent" pornography, even if it was part of a consensual session between two adults.
Lord Wallace of Tankerness pointed out an ideological schism during last week's debate in the House of Lords.
"If no sexual offence is being committed it seems very odd indeed that there should be an offence for having an image of something which was not an offence," he said. "Having engaged in it consensually would not be a crime, but to have a photograph of it in one's possession would be a crime. That does not seem to make sense to me."

First they came for the people that viewed "violent" pornography, and I did not speak out."
