Hello Grauniad...it's...it's the Torygraph? You do have to question where all these conservatives banging on about morality were.

Wow, the same type of technology China uses? No matter what one thinks of porn it's hard to see that as anything but terrifying.

I suspect you'll be receiving a ravaging from a certain white knighting Swede soon that will end with a "And no I don't support this" type disclaimer.

Or an authoritarian black who says he does.

This is excellent. This is also being pushed by women's groups. It's a sign pornography is not liberating but objectifying, and morally abhorrent from a left wing approach or a right wing approach.

Do I really care much about the left wing justification for this? No. But the alliance of social conservatives and feminist-progressives has been doing a lot in Iceland- banning strip clubs earlier- @) so the means justifies the ends here.

It's not surprising that right-wingers would support legislation that tells women what they can and cannot do with their bodies and what sexual acts they can and cannot perform consentingly, but it's absolutely disgusting that progressives have been bamboozled into voting for this social authoritarianism.

Probably. That Swede sure does love calling me a sexist for not supporting as much government control of women's bodies as he does.

Do you even know where this started? From what I read the push seemed to have started on the left.

Yes this is a proposal from a minister of the Left-green party. Hes been throwing out a bunch of crazy stuff as elections are coming up and the Left-greens are now only polling at 7%.

Even looking just a current states (ever?), plenty of Muslim states ban not just porn but also any female skin showing and booze and political expression as well. If enacted, this may make Iceland the worst non-ex-Soviet state in Europe, but it would be far from the worst country ever.

Being in Europe and non-ex-Soviet are further negatives to take into account, though. Tongue

Banned in Thailand too, but no need for it because we have a better thing - prostitution.

Did any of you all ever remember hearing about the phenomenon of black guys traveling to Iceland for the blondes (who are apparently crazy for the black)?

I'm glad porn production and sale are already banned in Iceland, but this seems a little excessive. The intention is, I think, admirable, though, and I can't really get worked up about this proposal except on principle.

We know you can't - you've mentioned it to us before.  And with this ban, neither will Norwegians.

Icelanders. As I understand it inability to become aroused without pornography is considered some sort of condition. You all right?

The time honored purpose of pornography is to Substitute for a Real Girl.  One may become aroused by a Real Girl, or pornography, but now these poor Swedes will have to become aroused only by staring at the wall.  Or perhaps a dour, fully clothed photograph of a feminist wearing a dreadlock.
