Erotic photographer Ben Westwood, Vivienne Westwood's son, staged a protest featuring bound-and-gagged models in fetish clothing at the House of Commons yesterday. Westwood was taking a stand against the impending Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill 2008, which outlaws extreme pornography and goes into effect January 1. Under the law anyone caught with his 2005 book F**k Fashion: The Erotic Photography of Ben Westwood could face a jail sentence of up to three years. The jacket blurb on the explicit tome describes Westwood Jr.'s photographic focus as "a heady combination of stylish clothing and lingerie worn (or not) by very pretty models with admirably few inhibitions."
