Striking a balance : arguments for the criminal regulation of extreme pornography.

McGlynn, C. and Rackley, E. (2007) 'Striking a balance : arguments for the criminal regulation of extreme pornography.', Criminal law review. . pp. 677-690.


Discusses the Government proposals, set out in its 2005 consultation paper, regarding the criminalisation of possession of extreme pornographic material. Highlights the murder case which helped spur the Government into action, the types of material identified in the proposals and what they aim to achieve. Explores the responses received to the consultation, noting areas of agreement and dissention between respondent groups. Argues in favour of a categories based approach to regulating pornography which focuses on "harm to women" rather than on a tendency to "deprave and corrupt".
