Penetrating insight into John Howard’s sex life

What are our policies based on really?

The Senate inquiry into nanny state laws, set up by Senator David Leyonhjelm, set out to uncover the ways in which the government unreasonably intrudes on the lives of Australians, but Friday's hearing left us with a disturbing insight into the life of John Howard. Friday's hearing heard from the porn industry, represented by the Eros Association's Joel Murray, who told the senators that Australians illegally downloaded porn because of the lack of legal access to adult material. According to Murray, the reasons for these restrictions go back to the former PM:
"Some fetishes used to be allowed within the X classification, and it is my understanding that under John Howard as prime minister, the X classification was restricted in particular because the prime minister was deeply offended by the idea of water sports and female ejaculation. In fact he claims that female ejaculation was not a true thing."
