Mantra Films

EDM number 1838 in 2010-12, proposed by Ian Mearns on 23/05/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Children's social services and Telecommunications.

That this House is deeply concerned that US pornography production company Mantra Films Inc is filming Girls Gone Wild in the UK, which approaches young women, many of them intoxicated, in public places, and encourages them to expose their breasts, simulate sex acts and have sex on camera in exchange for Girls Gone Wild merchandise; notes that Mantra films has been sued in the United States for filming young women in sexually provocative poses, using their images without consent and filming minors in scenes of a sexual nature; further notes that the founder of the company Joe Francis was jailed after pleading no contest to charges of child abuse and prostitution; believes that this is a form of demeaning, exploitative and casualised prostitution; and urges the Government to examine, as a a matter of urgency, how it can protect young women and halt this attempt at sensationalist entertainment.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
