Violent Internet Porn to be Banned in Britain - 08/31/05 01:34 PM

The British government is set to propose a plan that will see the total banning of violent Internet pornography. If the legislation goes through, it will be the first of its kind in any Western country, according to a Cabinet minister.

The legislation proposes to ban the possession of images that show sexual activity with a human corpse or animal, serious sexual violence, or serious violence in a sexual context. The legislation was announced by Home Office Minister Paul Goggins.

Goggins said: "We know from that particular case, the horrendous case of Jane Longhurst, who was brutally murdered by Graham Coutts, that these images do have an impact, do feed the fantasies in certain individuals."
