Donkey Sex is OK in Australia, but not Gay Sex, censors ban gay movie

I’ve always suspected that the rumours of Australians preferring sex with animals were true. All the jokes about sheep shagging…they had to come from somewhere. New Zealanders will find this latest antigay censorship decision from Australia’s Office of Film and Literature Classification perversely hilarious, given all the mutual sledging that goes on between our two nations over which country has the greatest propensity for zoophilia.

Now the Aussie censors have banned a gay movie because it depicts…shock horror…gay sex. The funny part is the censors allowed a movie that had blokes shagging donkeys.

This movie isn’t banned:

Real depictions of gay sex are apparently more shocking than real man-on-donkey action as Australian censors ban a gay movie that was due to screen at LGBT film festivals across the country this year.

Australian film censors have banned a movie that contains real sex between two male actors less than a year after they allowed a documentary that contained actual depictions of bestiality to screen at festivals. 

I Want Your Love, by American filmmaker Travis Mathews had been scheduled to screen at LGBT film festivals around Australia this year but the Australian Classification Board decided to ban it instead.

The decision comes less than six months after the Classification Board decided to allow the film Donkey Love, a documentary about a Colombian folk tradition where men have sex with donkeys to prepare them for having sex with women.

Donkey Love contained actual on screen sex between men and animals but was given permission to screen at the Sydney Underground Film Festival and Melbourne Underground Festival by the Classification Board.

I Want Your Love tells the story of a 20-something gay artist who negotiates to have sex with his best friend before leaving Los Angeles to move back to his hometown in Ohio.

This movie is banned:
