of course consenting - though also in the realm of fetish and bdsm (so it probably might look non-consensual, but according to descriptions it is)
I've just read some article that there were plans for outlawing it and there were comments that e.g. bdsm might be already illegal? It's more just a theoretical question because I was surprised as the UK seems quite a liberal country to me so I was wondering if people really can get into trouble for visiting a very popular and very easily available website? (I'd assume if it were illegal in the UK it would be already shut down or blocked, the same for if the content would be nonconsensual it also would be already shut down wouldn't it?)
I think it's referred to for example consensual bondage. and probably also consensual sadomasocism, but I'm really not expert in the topic
Thanks for the reply, but I still have the question if somebody can get into trouble for watching eg. redtube online (meaning a video of completely consenting adults but probably in not 100% consenting looking situation) as if I know well the s63 is about possession of images?
can you please comment on this?
btw, the basis of my question was this article, that I've found while browsing about 50 shades of grey: http://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2012/08/08/comment-prosecutors-extreme-porn-and-50-shades-of-grey
