You might think of Scandinavia as quite liberate part of the world, but when it comes to showing nudity and sex on tv. Well, in Sweden and Denmark there are no censorship on tv, but here in Norway its quite different.

Female trainer accuses NRK

Kari Jaquesson is a well known host from her exercise programs in Good Morning show on Norwegian TV2. She have been put to a quite difficult situation as NRK program called “Trygdekontoret” shows a pornographic version of her in a sex video made in USA. Trygdekontoret program is a sort of a debate program, but goes beyond what other debate programs goes as the topics is adult related.

As NRK is a state owned channel. It means that every half year, all of Norwegians that got a TV. They need to pay a fee for watching TV. NRK is as commercial-free as BBC is in United Kingdom. So Kari and the female organization Ottar have put effort in saying that NRK is buying sex. But what they don’t get is that NRK have bought porn which isn’t illegal. Whats illegal in Norway is to show parts moving, but showing breasts is fully legal. So a censored porn is allowed to show or a erotic movie.

“NRK, stop porn culture now”

The main slogan of the demonstration was “NRK gag women freedom of expression” and protesters shouted slogan “NRK, stop porn culture now.”

– Think of all the girls who are now wondering whether they should participate in the public debate, when they see the consequences for Kari Jaquesson. Who will dare to express themselves against boys club now? said Ottar leader Ane Steady to “The Social Security┬╗ -prosjektleder Eirik Sandberg Ingstad, who eventually emerged.

Porn debate taken to a new level

This case have been going on now for many weeks now with last days as the most heated ones. Selling sex is something that should be looked down at, but if this is a porn production. That’s another thing of the whole news topic. What could be debated if these girls in porn movies do it on their own will or if they are pushed. Now that topic would be a more interesting one.
