Porn star Misha Mayfair and activist Pandora Blake warn adults about age verification

Posted at 10:16 on 10 Sep 2018 by Pandora / Blake

Porn star Misha Mayfair and activist Pandora Blake present Curtains for Privacy: a safe-for-work satirical sexual exposé of the privacy risks presented by Government’s new age verification rules.

Mayfair and Blake appear in the viral video, released by ResistAV today, draped naked in net curtains as they warn of the risk of UK adults being outed under the Digital Economy Act 2017’s age verification requirements, with the punch line: “It’ll be curtains for personal privacy”.

The video heralds the launch of a crowd funding campaign on the CrowdJustice platform, to raise legal fees to challenge the age verification régime, designed by obscenity lawyer Myles Jackman.

BDSM Ethics and Practice, and other training for the BBFC

Posted at 17:00 on 14 Sep 2018 by Pandora / Blake

Last week I was invited to visit the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) and deliver a half day of training. This was something of a coup. Three years ago, my ethical porn website had just been closed down by the previous online porn regulator, due to my films contravening guidelines maintained by the BBFC. Now, the new online porn regulator were asking me to come and deliver an expert briefing to their compliance team about BDSM, its ethics and practice, and my recommendations regarding the way BDSM films are regulated.

It was an amazing opportunity to meet the people making decisions that affects filmmakers like me, talk to them about the issues, and create a shared context. I was excited to have the chance to share my knowledge and experience to help the team's understanding as they make classification recommendations on BDSM content.

Consent workshop in London - Getting and Giving What We Want

Posted at 17:00 on 15 Sep 2018 by Pandora / Blake

This is something I've been wanting to do for a really long time, and I'm thrilled that it's finally happening.

I'm facilitating a new workshop in London - Getting and Giving What We Want. I've developed this workshop with my co-facilitator Felix. So far we've run it a couple of times at little festivals and got a really good response. This will be our first time running it in London. It's happening at 7pm on Tuesday 2 October - just in time for the London Fetish Weekend - at the Apple Tree in Clerkenwell, a fab new LGBT venue that has just opened.

We will explore consent, boundaries, and ways to sensitively communicate with other people to create the best experiences possible.
