German Young Socialists Want the Government to Fund ‘Feminist Porn’ on TV

The Young Socialists in Berlin, Germany’s capital, want the government to subsidize “feminist porn,” including BDSM (bondage, domination, sadism, masochism), for television stations and individual purchase.

“Film funding also promotes ‘The Dream Ship’ and Nazi documentaries. We don’t want to prescribe specific practices either. It’s about someone applying for state funding,” Heike Hoffmann, a 20-year-old history student who is a deputy head of state for the Young Socialists of the German Social Democratic Party (SPD), told Welt.

Hoffmann suggested that the government should pay for pornography on the grounds that it is not endorsing the actions, but presenting educational information to the people.
