Ah, the blowing of the horn, the forward jerk, the faster growing puffing, the rocking rhythm, the noise from the coupling....


Ha-ha. Grin Very good Hermes. I spent some minutes trying to do something with this, but, sadly, I lack you're sense of metaphor!

ODM last year had around 400 subscribers for the sex channels which subscribers need to subscribe to as a separate porn package


I need someone to explain to me in little-person words what the problem with that is.

If you trace back the history of this case to its beginnings, the legal issue is that StarSat/ODM commenced broadcasting adult content without first being duly registered with the FPB, which registration is a legal requirement.  So it’s not the broadcasting per se that’s the problem, it’s that the broadcaster’s ducks aren’t all in a proper legal row.

Of course, the thing that surely started this whole, er, rumpus is the doubtlessly blustering moral outrage a handful of Calvinistic prudes felt at the thought that someone, somewhere might actually be enjoying a view of naughty, jiggling bits.  Those would be the selfsame prudes who sneak downstairs at night and browse the web to check up on what they might be missing…

SExactly. Looking at the comments on that article really lifts the veil on just how backwards some people still are.

Sure, the prude brigade got lucky on a technicality, but I doubt this would ever have emerged as such a huge problem had they kept their holier-than-thou noses out of it. I have no need for a porn channel in my life but damn, mind your own business!.
