Charlotte Rose is standing as a Sexual Freedom party candidate at the Clacton by-elections on 9th October 2014.
Sexual Freedom Party Manifesto 2014
What we stand for
- Freedom from sexual ignorance due to poor, or denial of, sex education
- Freedom from control by others
- Freedom from governmental control
We stand for knowledge, tolerance and respect, whatever a person's ability, preferences, identity, orientation, or job, so long as neither abuse or unwanted control is involved.
Why constituents might vote for us
We alone cover one aspect of life which people really care about: sex. Sex is the second biggest human drive, after survival, and yet it is ignored in politics. Most politicians pretend it is not important, and simply promote family values.
What we bring
Having a Sexual Freedom Party politician in the House of Commons will help towards the sex and relationship wellbeing of British citizens.
The Sexual Freedom Party will bring a new awareness to Parliament and society and work towards ridding this country of the stigma and bigotry which prevents some of our citizens from being sexually free. We will be doing this in these eight pressing
Disabled people and older people in care need to be free to enjoy the same pleasures as everybody else enjoys in the privacy of their own homes. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 makes this law, but it is rarely adhered to in practice.
People with sexual diversities still live restricted lives, for fear of stigma. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people have achieved some social acceptance but this does not often extend to situations like visiting the doctor or going into
hospital, where stigma exists, and gay people actually avoid going asa result! There is still little acceptance of people into BDSM (bondage, domination sado-masochism), fetishism, swinging, dogging, and polyamory.
Those who provide sexual services are currently forbidden by law to work together, which limits their capacity and renders their working lives unsafe. No other profession is limited in this way. So long as no control is involved, sex workers should be
free to work in pairs or groups, or as a community.
Striptease artists and sex workers are being targetted by religious and anti-sex feminists. They claim that sex work is violence to women, yet do not listen to the strippers and sex workers themselves. The professional ones actually claim they like their
work and are in charge of what they do. Striptease establishments are being unnecessarily closed down around the country, and sex workers demonised. In fact, striptease is a delightful, aspirational form of entertainment, and sex workers provide
pleasure, teaching, necessary human contact and satisfaction for millions of men and women across the country.
FGM Female Genital Mutilation -- thousands of young girls and women in this country are forced to have their genitals mutilated: the clitoris and labia are cut off, so that they experience pain instead of pleasure, Sometimes the vagina is sewn up so that
entry is so restricted that the man can only masturbate on her in order to impregnate her! FGM is illegal but only one prosecution has been made* since the law was passed over 25 years ago, and nothing really effective is being done because of
Grooming of young girls -- the recent scandal in Rotherham of muslim gangs grooming and raping young girls, was covered up for 14 years. Those trying to expose it were ignored by the press and authorities, which demonstrates the ignorance and the PC
cultural sensitivity of our government.
Forced marriage -- also ignored thanks to PC cultural sensitivity, where situations such as a young, learning disabled person being forced to marry a relative abroad in order for the spouse to live in the UK. Then they are encouraged to produce a large
inbred family, with perhaps more disabled children. This is illegal under the Forced Marriages Act 2008, and Forced Marriage etc. (Protection and Jurisdiction) (Scotland) Act 2011
but the laws are rarely enforced and do not go far enough.
Sex and Relationship Education (SRE)
SRE could do much to improve the sexual wellbeing of British citizens. This sex education needs to include everything mentioned above, i.e. sex and disability, all sexual diversities, striptease and sexual services and practices which threaten personal
Many brilliant campaigns have failed to get anywhere, and still schools are not obliged to teach SRE, and parents can ban their children from classes in school, so children are growing up in the 21st century, without sexual health knowledge, and often
without the skills to enjoy a happy sex life.
Campaigns against porn use the argument that porn teaches people inaccurate information which corrupts their minds. This misses the point that porn is about fantasy. What young people need is education on reality. Sex education is necessary to prepare
young people to look at porn. For example, in porn, anal sex looks as easy as vaginal sex but anal sex requires the recipient to open up, otherwise it is very painful and can be damaging. Many young porn viewers without this education are currently
experiencing such difficulties.
Considering the above, the level and quality of sex education required is much higher than the "school nurse" or biology teacher is likely to deliver. Experts need to be brought in. A disabled man**, just out of school, declared that the best
people to be teaching sex in schools are sex workers, as only they really know the full extent of human sexual needs and practice.
SRE needs to give people the confidence to enjoy the sex they want without being controlled or stifled. Some women, disabled people and shy people may need more support and there are experts out there who offer appropriate services. Sadly they mostly
work underground and are largely unsupported.
The Sexual Freedom Coalition linking the campaigners across the spectrum of human sexuality
It is reported that 8 women from the campaign group Object picketed the XBIZ adult industry conference in London. They waved banners such as: Porn is censorship, it silences women.
Object told newspaper reporters: Porn scenes often contain aggressive acts , explaining its protest and linking porn to violence and racism.
The independent also report from the inside the conference taking particular note of the adult potential for futuristic virtual reality equipment from Oculus Rift.
Jerry Barnett, the UK-based organiser of the conference, runs an organisation called Sex & Censorship and explains that the British porn industry operates under stricter constraints than those imposed in America and continental Europe:
The UK sex industry keeps a low profile -- there's a continual cycle of moral panic about sex.
Webcam services, involving live performances, have been identified as a growth area Webcam services, involving live performances, have been identified as a growth area.
The conference's key sponsors are billing firms such as Epoch Payment Solutions and Netbilling, better-known names such as PayPal will not touch the porn industry. Another sponsor is an age-verification provider, a reflection of the comparatively strict
identity checks demanded of porn subscribers in the UK. Barnett explained:
It's a very onerous thing and has destroyed the industry in the UK. UK consumers buy their porn from American companies.
A troupe of circus performers has been refused a business account after bank managers described their skimpy costumes as a moral problem .
Entertainer Joshua Morris set up Circus Uncertainty earlier this year and applied for a business bank account with Santander so he could get grants to fund work with terminally-ill children.
However, he claims the banking giant denied his troupe an account because the showgirls' outfits, a fringed bikini and stilts, were a moral problem . He was told on the phone he couldn't bank with the company because staff had looked on the
circus' website and didn't like the look of costumes worn by some acts.
The performers are baffled by the decision as there is no nudity in the family-friendly act - which has performed at Glastonbury and was a centre piece at the Harbourside Festival.
As always with negligent corporate censorship, the censors admit their mistake when caught out, but this rather asks the questions how many other business have been suffocated by bank censorship that haven't had the good fortune to get press coverage. A
Santander spokesman said: We are happy to review this account application following some clarification of the nature of the business.
The trailer of the upcoming erotic film Fifty Shades of Grey is hopefully set to spark a 1 million pound boom in the UK sex toy industry.
The Daily Star reported that the film will play in generating estimated average sex toy sales of 2 pound per adult over the course of the next year.
Lovehoney, who is the official supplier of all Fifty Shades sex toy merchandise, will be releasing a new range of toys to tie in with the movie which is out on Valentine's Day and are expecting a surge in sales and a bondage bonanza .
