Nice article, but I suspect that somewhere in the first couple of paragraphs you really should mention that it relates to the United Kingdom, for the benefit of bemused third parties... smiley - smiley

I only point this out in the interests of fairness, since one of my passtimes is sending complaining e-mails to US sites who have great special offers on the front page, ask you three pages of questions about yourself, then ask for your address... including ZIP code. At the foot of the fourth page or so of the form, in tiny print, it will inevetably say "open to residents of the United States and Canada only"... smiley - grr

Strangely enough, US obscenity laws seem to be based pretty heavily on 'The Hicklin Case' in any event, though tempered heavily by the Constitution.
