Protection of Children Act 1978 


'Abusing Children Sexually'


Collection of information (Terrorism Act 2000 s58)

Terrorism Act 2006

Providing material support for terrorism


We require these questions to be answered; in this Bill ...

What is the statutory definition of 'abuse'?

What is the statutory definition of 'child'?

What is the statutory definition of 'sexually'?

What is the statutory definition of 'paedophile'?

Something on 'advice' and 'guidance', would also be useful.


"The 120 Days of Sodom is the Marquis de Sade's masterpiece. A still unsurpassed catalogue of sexual perversions and the first systematic exploration of the psychopathology of sex, it was written during Sade's lengthy imprisonment for sexual deviancy and blasphemy and then lost after the storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution in 1789.

Later rediscovered, the manuscript remained unpublished until 1936 and is now introduced by Simone de Beauvoir's landmark essay, 'Must We Burn Sade?' Unique in its enduring capacity to shock and provoke, The 120 Days of Sodom must stand as one of the most controversial books ever written, and a fine example of the Libertine novel, a genre inspired by eroticism and anti-establishmentarianism, that effectively ended with the French Revolution."

Will these (or anything like them) come under The Act?

The 120 Days of Sodom

Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom,_or_the_120_Days_of_Sodom
