New laws passed in the United Kingdom will restrict the types of sex acts that are allowed in pornography. The Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014 requires that video-on-demand online porn follow the same rules as British sex shops.

According to The Independent, the banned acts include the following:

  • Spanking
  • Caning
  • Aggressive whipping
  • Penetration by any object “associated with violence”
  • Physical or verbal abuse (regardless of if consensual)
  • Urolagnia (known as “water sports”)
  • Female ejaculation
  • Strangulation
  • Facesitting
  • Fisting

The British Board of Film Censors particularly considers those final three to be “life-endangering,” meaning those Brits are into some pretty kinky shit.

The ban really only affects the production of porn in the UK, as citizens can still use this little thing called the Internet to find whatever nasty things get them off at night. Jerry Barnett of the anti-censorship group Sex and Censorship says the rules make no sense, telling Vice UK, “They’re simply a set of moral judgments designed by people who have struggled endlessly to stop the British people from watching pornography.”

Critics also point out that most of the banned sex acts are more associated with female pleasure rather than male. Itziar Bilbao Urrutia, a British dominatrix, also told Vice, “The new legislation is absurd and surreal. I mean, why ban facesitting? What’s so dangerous about it? It’s a harmless activity that most femdom performers, myself included, do fully dressed anyway. Its power is symbolic: woman on top, unattainable.”

The British really are a bunch of fuddy duddies, aren’t they?
