Ukraine bans Pornography

Please don't start fooling around about pornography.

"Ukraine has officially made it illegal to publish or hold any pornographic content within the confines of Ukraine. Many groups are asking the President to veto the law that would fine and or imprison you."

 

 

 

This is really stupid. I mean, prostitution/trafficking is illegal in Ukraine, but the government pretty much ignores it.

 

It's basically the same with the download-law here in Sweden (illegal to download anything copyrighted), you're never going to be able to enforce such a law.

 

It's a legit form of adult entertainment. In my view, the money this law will cost, they should spend on fighting trafficking/prostitution.

 

 

 

What's your view on this? And what's your thoughts on banning/regulating this form of "art"?

J'adore aussi le sexe et les snuff movies

Je trouve que ce sont des purs moments de vie

Je ne me reconnais plus dans les gens

Je suis juste un cas désespérant

Et comme personne ne viendra me réclamer

Je terminerai comme un objet retrouvé

I would prefer to see any amount of effort put into banning Legit Pornography to be put into enforcing and cracking down on Child Porn.

 

I agree with that.

 

 

 

and good luck with them enforcing this law. rofl. I don't see why it should be illegal anyhow. Helps stop rapists from becoming rapists.

Agreed

 

 

 

Is there any reason they are doing this now, political pandering or anything?

I think that is a grave mistake. Abundance of pornography is directly proportional to the lowering of sex crimes.

 

 

 

Have a source? I don't doubt the claim, but I would love to read the research on that.

I'm just waiting for Lenin to show up and make some Russian reversal "joke" he does so well.

 

 

 

And also, why ban porn !? No moral qualms here, but how the heck are they going to enforce it ?

Search laptops at airports for .jpg?

 

 

 

big law to enforce.

 

 

 

Define Pornography anyway - erotic ligature? Some people say the bible book song of Solomon is "Erotic". Erotic Poetry is considered "pornography" Art, pictures, not to mention home videos, private pictures - impossible to check everyone for all of that.

 

 

 

 

 

I'd say it's more aimed at searching machines in public places like airports and forcing goverment internet.

That makes sense [not the airport part, that's ridiculous], but for internet censorship, our goverment tried that and it screwed up interent speed. Most of the ISPs refused to support it.

 

 

 

It's going to fall flat on its' face.

I could see them searching personal laptops to use porn as an excuse to jail or detain suspicious individuals

Porn is now illegal in the Ukraine, unless used for medicinal purposes.

 

 

 

Porn has a medicinal purpose?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On June 11, the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) made possession of pornography not extreme porn, but ANY porn a criminal offence. It will be punishable by a fine of 850 hryvnia - which our currency converter helpfully reveals is approximately 69 British pounds - or up to three years in prison. As in the UK, this is a significant shift in the law, which previously only concerned itself with those who produced or distributed pornography.

 

 

 

The problem with this legislation is that the only available definition of porn comes from 2003 legislation, which states, according to the English language version of the Kyev Times:

 

 

 

"Pornography is vulgar, candid, cynical, obscene depiction of sexual acts, pursuing no other goal, the explicit demonstration of genitals, unethical elements of the sexual act, sexual perversions, realistic sketches that do not meet moral criteria and offend honour and dignity of the human by inciting low instincts."

 

 

 

 

 

We want every Ukrainian family not to have a porno mag in the bedroom dresser, but a Bible, said Viktor Shvets, chairman of the parliament committee that drafted the pornography law.
