The Liberty and Democracy Party (LDP) has vowed to legalise pornography and overhaul prostitution laws if it gains any control after Saturday’s election.
The fringe party’s Queensland Senate candidate John Humphreys said the current laws were absurd.
Every other political party has an unhealthy interest in our sex lives. The LDP is committed to getting John Howard and Kevin Rudd out of our bedrooms, he said.
It is already legal to buy X-rated videos in Australia. However, in one of our more stupid laws, it is illegal to sell X-rated videos everywhere except the ACT.
The current laws against prostitution are also absurd. The sex lives of Australians should be no business of the government.
Humphreys said LDP wanted more relaxed laws on pornography and prostitution.
We understand that pornography and prostitution go against the moral and religious beliefs of some Australians. However, we do not generally believe that it is appropriate to enforce religious views on other people, he said.
So long as nobody is hurt, people should be left relatively free to live their own lives.
