A mass facesitting demonstration is taking place outside Parliament in London to protest new U.K. pornography regulations that will hold online porn to the same standards as DVDs: That means no spanking, no bondage, no watersports, no fisting, no squirting, and, of course, no facesitting.
Protestors opposed to the Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014, led by sex worker Charlotte Rose, staged the facesit-in to coincide with a parliamentary debate on what should be allowed in internet porn. Rose argues the new guidelines are sexist, because the list of banned acts seems to target female pleasure.
Lib Dem MP Julian Huppert made a move to annul the new rules, calling it a "very odd" double standard to ban videos of acts that are legal between consenting adults. Huppert "tabled an Early Day Motion in order to ensure that the topic is debated in the House of Commons," the Independent reported.
Protestors had a secondary goal of setting a Guinness World Record for most people sitting on faces at the same time—500 people were expected to show up, based on Facebook RSVPs—but Guinness apparently rejected the record attempt.
