Truly frightening....and not to be forgotten twenty years on. It could happen to YOU.
Back in 1990 Judge Rant (gotta love THAT one...yeh can't make this shit up) in the UK decided "in a complex legal argument" that consensual BDSM was considered assault under the law and jailed 16 people based on a videotape of a play session. This prompted the creation of The Spanner Trust to help defend BDSM people against the predations of the government, moral panic mongers-and lawyers who want to profit from the confusion stirred up by them.
Slavery isn't free.
Thanks for reminding us at The Spanner Trust, bois.
