Put soft porn out of view: experts

Graphic images delay censor report 

And also invited readers to vote in a poll: Poll - "Should 'soft' pornography be banned from sale in newsagents, milkbars and service stations"  

Classification system held in contempt 

For more background on the issue see these blog posts here, and here  and pieces in Unleashed  and On Line Opinion.  It is clear Australia’s classification system is being held in contempt. In Senate Estimates hearings in February, Director of the Classification Board, Donald McDonald, informed the committee that he had issued 1000 ‘call-in’ notices  for porn distributors to remove magazines and films containing prohibited content – including promoting sex with little girls and rape and incest themes . When asked how many had responded, he replied: “none”.

The problem of lack of compliance and lack of enforcement must be addressed by the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General in its meeting this month.
