Feminist porn director Pandora Blake wins right to reinstate fetish website in landmark ruling
She was among UK pornographers forced to closed down her website due to anti-porn laws
A feminist pornographer has won the right to re-launch her fetish website, in what she has described as a landmark victory over repressive anti-pornography laws.
Actress and director Pandora Blake, who runs DreamsofSpanking.com, was among UK pornographers forced to close their websites after a 2014 law brought porn made in the UK in line with rules binding DVDs sold sex shops.
The Audio Visual Media Services regulations (AVMS) banned sex acts that were deemed morally damaging or life-threatening, including strangulation, face-sitting and fisting. Spanking beyond what was deemed to be a gentle level, humiliation, full bondage and restraint (which involves a gag and all four limbs), female ejaculation, and depictions of non-consensual sex were also forbidden under the laws enforced by the Authority for Television on Demand (Atvod), which has since been overtaken by Ofcom.
Ms Blake is believed to be the first pornographer to be granted the right to re-open her website in the wake of the law, and is one of only two UK producers who can legally publish videos of face-sitting, female ejaculation and spanking which leaves a mark.
She told The Independent that she took a “huge risk” in launching an appeal against the regulator, but feels “totally vindicated” after winning the appeal which she launched in August 2015.
“A year ago, knowing that I would likely lose my site, I felt powerless. Now, I feel hopeful, and inspired to keep on challenging bad laws and fighting for our civil liberties and sexual freedoms.”
