A regional office of Nigeria's National Film and Video
Censors Board said it had burned pornographic films valued at millions of naira.
The burning of the pornographic materials, which took place at the Benin Centre office of the Board in Edo State, was performed by the Executive Director of the Board, Alhaji Adedayo Thomas. He said that there is no hiding place for sellers of
pornographic materials, stressing that the Board will continue its clamp down on their activities.
Adedayo noted that the Board will continue to engage the stakeholders and enlighten them on the dangers of dealing on pornographic materials to the society. He added that the Board has set up a special squad charged with the responsibility
of tackling the menace of pornography on the youth.
Germany is considering making state-funded feminist porn and broadcasting it to the public to combat porn stereotypes.
The material, which would include fat, skinny, young and old people will be available on the websites of public broadcasters ARD and ZDF, if the idea goes ahead.
The proposal was voted on by Angela Merkel's social-democratic SDP coalition partners at a general assembly in Berlin. The delegates accepted a proposal from their youth wing to adopt the idea of government-funded feminist pornography for
educational purposes as part of their party programme.
In the proposal, the SPD wrote: Mainstream porn generally shows sexist and racial stereotypes in which consent is not a theme and certain "optimal" body types are made as standard. In these films, sex seems more like a performance or
competitive sport: everything seems to work right away, there is no communication between the performers, no trying out, failure and trying out new things.
The SPD also proposes that German broadcasters ARD and ZDF buy some of those movies and offer them on their online media libraries.
