Here’s what it looked like at the U.K. face-sitting protest outside Parliament

On Friday afternoon outside Parliament in the U.K., pro-porn protesters organized a massive demonstration against new regulations from the British Board of Film Censors (BBFC). The demonstrators are angry that the new rules ban specific sex acts in porn, including face sitting, female ejaculation, fisting, spanking, and “penetration” by any large object.

When the regulations took effect earlier this month, feminist porn filmmakers and performers immediately took umbrage at them, calling them sexist and saying that banning an act like female ejaculation “appear[s] to take aim at female pleasure,” as one sex worker told the Telegraph.

To register their displeasure with their government, British sex workers and adult performers gathered for a “face-sitting” protest outside Parliament. And boy, did it look like they were having a lot of fun:

At one point, the protesters launched into a spirited version of Monty Python’s “Sit On My Face.”

There are a number of great vines capturing the scene. Many feature protesters chanting “What do we want/Face-sitting/When do we want it?/Now,” which sounds at least ten times funnier in plummy British accents:

Good on you, face-sitting protesters, for petitioning your government in an eye-catching way. Keep fighting for freedom of expression and show David Cameron what’s what. Your friends in the former North American colonies will be standing (and sitting) alongside you.
