    Australia : Declare your porn

    Aussie Customs

    Declare your porn
    May 21, 2010


    Customs said many items of pornography were legitimately bought, possessed and viewed and these items would be returned to the passenger.

    SYDNEY - VISITORS to Australia now have another question to answer in addition to declaring whether they are carrying any firearms, weapons or illicit drugs. Are they bringing in any pornography? The additional query was introduced in September 2009, Customs said on Friday, adding that it was designed to pick up prohibited items such as child pornography at the border.

    But the Australian Sex Party described it as a 'monstrous invasion of people's privacy' which would leave the laptops and mobile phones of anyone entering the country open to scrutiny.

    '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,' president Fiona Patten said.

    The change means that travellers must declare X-rated erotic material that is legal in Australia and potentially have these items examined by Customs officers, she said. 'Is it fair that Customs officers rummage through someone's luggage and pull out a legal men's magazine or a lesbian journal in front of their children or their mother-in-law,' Ms Patten asked.

    Customs said many items of pornography were legitimately bought, possessed and viewed and these items would be returned to the passenger. But offensive material containing child pornography, bestiality, explicit sexual violence and graphic degradation needed to be detected. '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.' Customs said the assessment of adult material would be done by officers trained to be tactful and discreet, and the question was only designed to pick up offensive items.

    Jees, imagine taking the family on holiday, kids are asleep so you and the missus make a little video, gonna be a bit of a shock to the kids when you get to Aussie immigration trying to explain that little fact whilst the kids are behind you.

    Well, most sane people think that way. But can't you see how this is going over the top? The Sex Party is 100% right, is there any bloody privacy left at all?

    More proof that the Aussies are just as stupid as the Americans. Who the fuck is going to admit to having kiddie porn on them? The same people who admit to being a terrorist when entering America, I suppose?

    you miss the point.

    You fly into Aus and you will have to sign a piece of paper.

    " Do you have porn in your possession?"

    What's your answer?

    "Yes" ,

    fine, everything gets searched.

    They find you're not breaking the rules and you're free to go.

    This will have taken hours.

    All the other passengers in the line will have been enjoying your embarrassment.

    And have been infuriated at the the additional delay.

    Alternative......

    "No, nothing to declare"

    You've just come back from BKK, flown into Melbourne at 04.30. Knackered.

    As is the customs bloke.

    You hand him the piece of paper, the one that you've ticked, that says you have no pornography.

    He looks, he smiles.

    "You're fucked."

    Lap top,

    hard drive,

    CDs

    DVDs

    Thumb sticks aka flash drives.

    All is explored.

    Hours pass.......................

    In 2009 you accessed a porn site. !!!!!!!!!

    Bye.

    Getting into Australia is more complicated than getting into the old Soviet Union.

    Last time I visited I was interrogated by some Eastern European immigrant that could barely speak English.

    You hav zee correct papers? Vot iz your purpose in Auztrala?

    A bit off-topic, but a couple of years ago I was changing planes in Tokyo on the way back to Thailand, and I'd been reading "Porno" by Irvine Welsh (the guy who wrote 'Trainspotting')- I had left it on my seat during the lay-over in Tokyo- when I got back on the plane (near the back of the line) the book was prominently sitting on the check-in counter with a large sign with my name and seat number on it.

    Everyone got a good look at it, of course- it was a bit embarrassing...

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    I reckon it is a gross invasion of Privacy and the country is turning into a bunch of woozers.

    Thought Reverend Freddy "the wanker" Nile had died years ago.

    Of you when we were swimming.

    Do you remember, on the beach in Thailand? That lovely beach with white sand and no people.

    we all went swimming.

    You didn't need to wear your cossi cos there where no people there.



    Well, now this nice customs man is going to arrest me and Mummy for having kiddy porn.

    We'll be locked up for a few years and you're going to be fostered out to a pedophile.

    I don't know what/where 'Hibs' is (sounds familiar, though- maybe it was a setting in the book), and I don't know enough about Welsh personally to challenge your assessment, but the book wasn't very good and didn't match his earlier work, imho.

    Hibs are the football team he supports, they are the small club from Edinburgh, in the shadow of their larger and more successful rivals, Heart of Midlothian.

    Pretty good thanks, back up to 1.75 AUD yesterday and rising.

    I expect 1.90-2.10 in the medium term.

    Ah yes- it's been a few years- some of it is coming back to me- I remember a running disdain for anyone wearing a "Hearts" scarf in both books I read- now I get it.

    Now if you are Ozzy you should not have a Thai Wife/GF named Porn and try to bring here back home. She will not get a Visa anyway.

    Back to the Sheeps I think
