Big Brother is Watching. Your Porn


[Media: Article]

Suicide Girls, of which I used to have a membership at, has been taking down certain pictures because of the FBI's new anti-obscenity initiative on the Internet. They're basically taking down any pictures of bondage. SG's Olivia has this to say on the SG message boards:

I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to the "War on Porn," SG will be taking down a bunch of photosets and individual photos today.

Even the FBI agents paid to surf for porn find this ridiculous, but apparently sending people to jail for pictures of two consenting adults enjoying a little rope bondage is more fucking important than.... I dunno, pick any one of the million of better causes out there that the government could be focusing on.

So, I apologise heartily for having to do this, both to the SuicideGirls whose art is being fucked over and the members who are being treated like babies, but we really don't want to get shut down and sent to jail. As soon as legally possible, the photosets and pictures about to be taken down will come back. Until then, bid a fond farewell to your favourite blood-bathing beauties, rope-bound babes, and handcuffed honeys. Apparently they've no place in today's society.


There's been a lot of grumbling about this, even coming from FBI Agents about how wasteful these resources are, I encourage you to read up on it.
