New revenge porn law

As from today 13 April 2015 the new revenge porn law comes into force. Without the consent of your slave, submissive or even the model in your photos. You could be jailed for up to 2 years if they find their way onto the internet, sent by text, emailed or are posted on other message platforms as well as simply showing a physical or electronic image.

Anybody posting a private, sexual images of another without prior consent with the intent to cause distress will face prison.

Previously, prosecutors must have evidence of harassment or copyright infringement when seeking to take some into call. Now with the introduction of the new law greater protection has been offered to victims.

Campaigners hope it will dramatically reduce the number of cases and make it easier to get justice for the victims.

The notion seems to be taking hold among BDSM practitioners that disgruntled submissives will be using the courts to obtain leverage over mistresses, masters and/or their snap-happy flunkeys.

To quote a phrase oft-used by the political commentator and journalist Andrew Neil, it could mean “dripping-roast for lawyers”.

Website publishers are already displaying their skittishness, by rejecting uploads of pictures of unknown submissives on the grounds that they have not consented to publication. If this becomes the norm, it will have a chilling effect on an aspect of our cherished hobby (or lifestyle if you prefer), which is doubtless what the legislators intended, in their drive to capture a segment of the demographic in the run-up to the election. It doesn’t take much to imagine the grey vote from Clacton to Margate spluttering into their pints, ”Bloody pictures of bloody poofters and their whips – thank God for the Tories – keeping Britain safe!”.

Are we heading to an environment where every mistress who deploys a camera requires every submissive to sign a waiver before the session starts?
