Well it seems Australia has been updating forms without telling anyone. In particular someone has updated the forms you must declare if you are bringing in Pornography into the Australia.
It’s started to come to light, mainly thanks to the Australian Sex Party.
To quote,. Fiona Patten, president of the Australian Sex Party, said:
“If you and your partner have filmed or photographed yourselves making love in an exotic destination or even taking a bath, you will have to answer ‘Yes’ to the question or you will be breaking the law.”
Meanwhile on the other side, Australian customs say this:
“The inclusion of the question on the passenger card is intended to give a traveller the opportunity to declare adult material if they are uncertain as to whether their material would be deemed prohibited,” a Customs statement said.
“Declaring the goods will minimise any action that would be considered against someone possessing such goods, unless it involves child pornography.”
Obviously, this brings up the classic privacy question, as quite frankly there is some content you don’t want to share in the world. And then we get to the icky definitions of what is pornography.
Just another forbile to be aware of when travelling globally…
