Law and Sexuality

A commentary and resource on Law and Sexuality by Professor Chris Ashford and guests

Extreme Porn Event

I was fortunate enough to attend the conference ‘Criminalising Extreme Pornography: 5 Years On’ at Durham University this last week.

5 years on from the passing of legislation to criminalise the possession of extreme pornography, the seminar sought to examine the effect of the 2008 Act. It brought together academics, activists, policy-makers and other regulatory authorities to evaluate the success or failure of the legislation and to asked what, if any, reforms are necessary to secure progress toward this objective.

Speakers included:

  • Simon Walsh (barrister and alderman of the City of London)
  • Fiona Elvines (Rape Crisis, South London)
  • Holly Dustin (End Violence Against Women Coalition)
  • Alex Dymock (University of Reading)
  • Clare McGlynn and Erika Rackley (Durham Law School)
  • Hildur Fjóla Antonsdóttir (Centre for Women’s and Gender Research, University of Iceland)

I’ve put together a Storify of the event which you can check out here.
