The Australian Sex Party's Fiona Patten MP pushed for a broad ranging inquiry into the state's drug laws back in November 2015. Submissions are now being inquiry-into-illicit-and-synthetic-drugs-and-prescription-medicationaccepted and we urge you to make your own. The Eros Association will be making a submission to this important inquiry too, but it is important that businesses and individuals also make submissions.

In a year of increasingly high-profile endorsements, LELO was once again the star of a blockbuster, featuring prominently in seasonal smash hit, Office Christmas Party. The Smart Wand™ Medium makes its show-stealing cameo within the first 15 minutes of the movie, during a scene in which two of the central characters are out shopping for potential gifts for their colleagues.
My book Porn Panic!, which was published in August by Zero Books, is an unusual book, and has had strong reviews - from those on both sides of the porn debate. The book charts attacks on pornography - in part from a personal perspective - and then takes a big step back to take a broad look at the state of our society today; and concludes that we’re not in a good place, nor moving in a good direction.
Back in 2011, a West Australian vape retailer, Vince Van Heerden of Heavenly Vapes, experienced the full force of these defenders of health first hand. A discrete court order for search and seizure was obtained by the WA Department of Health, who sent three black SUV’s to his residence and spent an hour and a half ransacking his place, putting all of his hardware into big, black garbage bags. There was no warning for Vince or his family. Over the next five years, Vince spent over $100,000 battling the WA Department of Health over vaporisers. And in the end, he lost.
California, USA – The heavy-handed California Proposition 60 was recently defeated by more than a seven point margin. The proposition would have seen the demise of California’s adult film industry by making condoms mandatory to wear in all adult films. Thankfully due to the campaign by the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee and the Free Speech Coalition, this backward law won’t come into place.

Employment contracts can be written, oral or a mixture of both. Written employment contracts are always preferable to oral agreements which are difficult to enforce, especially when disputes arise. Employment contracts are essential to any business and employers should use them as a tool to protect the interests of the business and to properly manage staff. Without employment contracts, businesses expose themselves to unnecessary and avoidable risk.
Can you believe the year is almost over? For some of us, the end of this year cannot come fast enough and for others it has been highly invigorating. Whatever position you take, it must be agreed that 2016 has definitely been an eventful year. To wrap up what we have accomplished in 2016:
The recent ACT election was a watershed moment for the Australian Sex Party in the national capital. It was the first time that the party had run a large campaign for a territory election and the results didn’t disappoint. The team ran in three of the five electorates.
Social media has been a part of our lives for over two decades and includes a range of different websites with an emphasis on the sharing of ideas and content between individuals, private companies, government and the community/not-for-profit sector.
At the height of Victorian-era morality in Australia, it became illegal to swim at the local beach during daylight hours. As the flow of convicts from the UK slowed and Australia started to develop its own identity, free from the ‘taint’ of a convict past, the authorities thought that adopting this extreme measure would send a message to the world, that we were now a civilised and moral country who would not tolerate the morally ‘iffy’ business of swimming at a public beach when others could see you.
In September Clare Watson’s sold out theatre piece Gonzo brought together two demographics whose voices are underrepresented in pornography debates: teenage boys and porn performers. The Malthouse play, featuring four teens in conversation with queer kink performer Gala Vanting and sex documentarian Helen Betty Corday (aka Liandra Dahl), posits teens as savvy media-literate porn consumers and reveals the potential in engaging with performers to make sense of online pornography.
If you were thinking that a number of performers’ have a country, city or physical geographical feature within their name then you are getting hotter. Here’s a short list of some geographically-inspired performer names: Alexis Texas; Phoenix Marie, Savanna Samson, Asia Carrera, Houston, Aletta Ocean, India Summer, Madison Ivy, Kylie Ireland, Bambi Woods, Pandora Peaks and Christy Canyon.

There have been a number of scams popping up recently around the market for “legal highs”. The Eros Association warned members earlier in the year about a fake Northern Lights online seller who had setup, was taking money for orders and not delivering them. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recently published a report which found that scams have taken at least $90 million from Australian consumers in 2013 alone. The ABC published a news report detailing the ten most commonly reported scams in Australia. Many of the online-based synthetic scams insist on large sums of money being paid up-front, before any product is delivered. After depositing money, the trail often gets twisted, with claims that product has been sent or claims of ‘difficulties’ somewhere along the line or something of that nature.
