Why has female ejaculation been banned in British porn? / The Daily Beast

“What has the British Board of Film Classification got against women’s orgasms? Unsurprisingly, sexist double standards are at play.

I wish I could have been a fly on the wall in the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) when it composed the list of DVD porn regulations that, as of this week, now apply to all video-on-demand (VoD) online porn. I wonder if the Board’s members realized there would be such an outcry when they banned urolagnia (or that across the pond a naïve reporter would have to ask what “water sports” means). I wonder if they realized how much people enjoy watching fisting or facesitting, or at least support people’s right to enjoy watching fisting or facesitting. But mostly I wonder why they felt compelled to specifically ban images of female ejaculation.

The list of banned items from the BBFC seems altogether ridiculous and excessive. If consenting adults spank or cane each other on film—and if people get off watching them do so to each other—then god-speed. Any attempt to restrict sexual acts between legal-aged people who want to participate in them or watch them seems downright puritanical from a country that aired Skins—a fabulous show filled with butt-naked teenagers doing tons of drugs—on network television.

Yet, the specific ban on female ejaculation is even more egregious. The fact that female ejaculation is even considered to be in the same category of offense as the abovementioned acts that are, one could argue, potentially physically harmful, is ludicrous and pretty plainly sexist. It doesn’t take too many logical leaps to get the message: physical expressions of female sexual pleasure can be dangerous and are certainly illicit.”
