Are Abby's Days Numbered?

A recent thread mentioned their company, G Media, offices being raided by police because their porn was illegally explicit. These types of stories seem to rarely have happy endings, as porn and the law do not have a good relationship.

So, does anyone know what's going to happen? If any current members get news or updates from the site about its status, could you please pass it along here or in the above mentioned thread. I have yet to be a member of this site, but it's on my list, and I am steeling myself for the reality that it might not exist in the near future. :(

RagingBuddhist (65) No idea what's going on, but something must be happening behind the scenes. I've noticed there haven't been any webmaster replies here lately and they're definitely not honoring their policy of giving a response within 24 hours to emails for tech support. I guess, if your future is in jeopardy, little things like that go to the back burner.

Abbywinters office raided.... (Austrailia HeraldSun)

Original Link of News
http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,25641940-2862,00.html

Basically, the first post quotes a newspaper article stating that it's illegal to make money from porn films in Victoria, Australia, and that the police raided the office of G Media, which runs the Abby Winters web sites.

The long-term future of the G Media company, and its web sites, is apparently unclear.

Abby winters is a major internet porn site, and this is really a kick in the head to the porn community.

Thanks for posting the link to the thread.

I still can't believe they see this site as explicit, since, at least as far as I know, they shoot girl-only content -- which technically isn't even hardcore -- and it is not exactly "hard" girl-girl or solo girl content at that.

Explicit is in the eyes of the beholder, the same as personal taste. In the United States, Playboy used to be prosecuted for obscenity, and that is a softcore magazine that in those days basically showed a few solo girl spreads with nudity but no masturbation or any sexual
action at all. Around the 1970s, I think (not really sure, my memory is really poor sometimes) a lot of drugstore and convenience store chains in the U.S. were forced to stop carrying Playboy because of public sentiment and lawsuits. Those stores that did carry Playboy (and Penthouse and most certainly Hustler) had to keep the magazines hidden away from public view because minors might be corrupted by the magazines. So the stores that carried Playboy kept the magazine in a special adult section or hidden away under the counter.

I don't know if Playboy is still being prosecuted for pornography in the U.S. today, but back in the 1960s, 1970s, etc., when it was being prosecuted, it was more softcore than what you find at Met-art or Femjoy, which are major softcore sites today. By that, I mean the pubic area back then was covered with natural pubic hair. Today you see the bare look at Femjoy and Met-art, with no hair covering the pubic region, so the pubic region is much more exposed, or completely exposed today.

jd1961 (95) I don't know anything about Australian porn laws, but I do know Australia is on the cutting edge when it comes to censoring the internet. Seems to me they may be using AW to further their cause.

SueAnn (In-Active) Hiya everyone!

I'm Sue-ann, I'll be your contact here on pornusers.com, answering all your questions and comments. Well, maybe not everything - a girl's gotta have some secrets... :)

The team here at abbywinters.com did have a little bit of an upset but it's business as usual this week, the photographers are out shooting and there are still loads of cute Aussie babes walking through our doors...we're not going anywhere.

The main website will have a complete revamp towards the end of the year. It's very exciting and there's a bunch of new, way cool features I know you'll love. Stay tuned.

Regarding newbie 100 scores: abbywinters.com has never and will never post spam reviews. When a member sends in great feedback our customer support team have asked them to spread the word, posting here and on other review sites their personal experiences with us. We won't do this anymore as it seems their passionately positive reviews are annoying some people..

Anyway, questions are most welcome and I'll do my best to help
Love ya later!
Sue-ann
