The Porn protection League - Politcal Satire
This is really rather obscure and british, but I just had to mention it somewhere. So here it is.|
Newspaper in the UK called The Express owned by a guy that also owns lots of porn-related media services. I know this place is pro-porn (like, duh) but personally I prefer my porn a little bit more separated from my mainstream media. And for my government not to be in the owner's back pocket. (Or front pocket, or general crotch area.) Anyway. he refuses to recognise his connections to the porn industry, generally it's just amusing, more proactive people than myself are poking fun at him and are possibly a little more pissed-off by his two-faced-ness.
Cut to the point, there's a writing competition. The 'Express Meets Forum' Writing Competition (Forum is the porn mag):
Write an erotic story (1000 words max.) from the point of view of an editor, journalist or any other member of staff of The Express. All characters must be fictional, and the judge's decision will be final. To make the story as authentic as possible, it should be in keeping with the editorial practice of the Express (i.e. with all the rude words f**king bleeped out).
The people running this aren't involved in fic or slash in any way to my best knowledge. What d'you say? Wanna let loose and shock 'em all?
