Sexual Politics=Not Sexy

GreenPenis.jpg&bull The Moroccan government sentenced thirteen men to prison for “producing gay pornographic films” and “inciting prostitution” on the internet. In a country filled with architecture shaped like penises, we find this a bit surprising.

Three of the men received sentectes of six years each; one of the men is a French citizen, who received a one year sentence. (The group’s total prison sentences total thirty years.)

The majority of the defendants (the models)…aged between 18 and 20, these impoverished Moroccans found themselves involved in a very dirty adventure, risking their reputation for a very insignificant sum of money and a promise of immigration to France.

The name of the site has not been released, and the Moroccan government blocked access to the site. We can’t imagine that life in a Moroccan prison is anything like what we see in those prison-porn movies, either. Yuck.

&bull Speaking of politics you’d find in a Third World country: unbeknownst to most gay people, abortion is NOW ILLEGAL in South Dakota, and legislators are pushing to pass similar bans in several other states, including Mississippi. The goal is to bring a case to the Supreme Court, which will most likely overturn Roe vs. Wade. Although now that sodomy is legal again, it was only a matter of time before people got itchy for another sex law to fight.
