Stodgy Brits try to block Girls Gone Wild filming

Nobility yes, “nubility” no.

Research concludes paid girlfriends love cheap caps and T-shirts.

Girls Gone Wild researchers conclude paid girlfriends love cheap caps and T-shirts.

That’s the word out of unjolly old England, which is trying to block the filming of Girls Gone Wild events on the once-important island.

According to an article in The Telegraph, the stodgy fellows who run the area of Newcastle, a town that parties so hard they named a famous beer after it, are asking the “Home Office” (not a tax deduction, but the U.K.’s version of the Department of Homeland Security) to ban the filming of nubile wenches nationwide.

They’ve clearly got their crumpets in a wad. Here’s the text from a motion they’ve concocted:

“This House is deeply concerned that U.S. pornography production company Mantra Films Inc. is filming Girls Gone Wild in the U.K., 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.”

A curious reaction for a country that served as the cradle of capitalism.

A spokesman for the Girls Gone Wild tour said public toplessness is a “really fun celebration of freedom and youthful expression.”

Here’s to all who lift a pint — and shirt — for freedom.

Granted, Kate Middleton is pretty hot, but don’t most Brit women have nasty teeth like the men? Not that GGW is concerned with dental hygiene (something they share with the Brits, apparently), but, for me, when a naked, pretty girl smiles at me (not that THAT happens often) the appeal is lost when the front incisors are missing and all the rest are crooked. Might as well save on travel costs, go find a rural county in Alabama, and do GGW: Ladies of Meth.

Roekest – Sure, Kate Middleton’s hot… if you can ignore her Adam’s Apple…

You know absolutely nothing about British television. I should imagine the authorities in the UK know just who runs this show and are aware of how often he’s had legal trouble. Why import criminals? Here in England we have plenty of our own.

I’m no prude but why is the AJC allowing one of their bloggers to protray a porn producing company like GGW as a good thing? This outfit has a history of using women for profit. The owner has been successfully sued by women for using videos of them without permission. George Mathis, unless you’re totally ignorant, these guys video a lot more than women showing their ta-tas. This posting has no place in a mainstream newspaper like the AJC. Maybe TMZ is hiring.

@George If it upsets you so then dont read it! Dont know what you think the AJC is, it is a newspaper and this is news because, while this may not be something that appeals to the masses, it is a free enterprise system (not that the US Govt would have you to believe) and if there was no market for it they wouldn’t be doing it. I dont like seeing the repotrs about “Idol” that are ALL OVER this paper so I dont read them. Something made you look and read the article so just “turn the page” that are and move on.

“Stodgy Brits”, “once-important island”?

Sounds like it’s Mr. Mathis whose crumpets are in a wad.

Britain, unlike the United States, has and appreciation for something cerebral and something with social value in their television programming. Girls Gone Wild is the pinnacle of America’s declaration
this all its good ideas are behind it.

I guess, Ramzad, that the page 6 girls are considered “cerebral”……(or is that page 3?)

GGW might have better luck if they approached Steven Moffat and asked to be a part of Doctor Who. Imagine the drunken buffoon parties you could have in the TARDIS…….

Not sure what the Brits are complaining about…check out Babe Station…comes on at 11:00 every night here in the UK on Free View (which is like basic cable in the USA).

@Goose454: I am not “offended” by news stories since they portray real life events. This blog is not a news story. It’s a piece of trashy commentary. It’s indicative of how the AJC is getting desparate for readers.

And featuring underaged women in porno films aka paedophilia is something that the AJC is promoting and trying to export to the UK? This article smacks of misogyny, pedophilia and xenophobia, you give Georgia a bad name, some please fire George from the AJC.

I guess the Brits are still far behind their counterparts throughout Europe where boobies galore is the order of the day on European television. How can you not like to watch gyrating hotties? That is tantamount to not liking oxygen, in my book anyhow. (Of course, it could be said that my book is Hustler Magazine :P ) Come now, old chaps, what would James Bond do?

I can see that you are a bit overwrought, t, but you really should not make accusations that are totally unfounded. All girls in the productions are certified to be 18 years of age or older. And really, while this obviously isn’t your cup of tea it’s very unfair of you to attack George as he is only trying to make folks smile and not steal their life savings or something equally evil as a person might would think from your post.

lol…..if you think those girls are being filmed against their will, I have a bridge to sell you. Joe Francis has gotten nabbed for tax evasion and that’s about it. I think the guy waving the “pedophilia” flag is saying more about himself. Psycho.

Bottom line: GGW wouldn’t be going there if there wasn’t a market for their product. . .

Georgie Mathis is clearly a fan of scumbag entertainment. This is a new low the the AJC. Mr. Mathis should be submitting his articles to porn magazines, not a big city newspaper. How embarrassing.

And Mr. Mathis, your little comment about The UK being a “once important island” is both ignorant and incredibly stupid. I daresay The UK (England specifically) is far more important to the rest of the world than, oh say, you are to journalism.

Piece is total rubbish, start to finish. In a decent world, GGW wouldn’t exist. Brits don’t need it and have had the nowt to say so. Good on them.
