Is it now legal to buy adult dvds from the US or CANADA and ship them back to the UK.
Also how do customs find out whats in your package if you only order 1 dvd at a time.


Thanks.

I've never ordered an adult DVD from the US, so someone in this forum may be able to help, but the way I understand it, the situation is.......

As far as I can tell, the new law that was passed a month or so ago regarding the legalisation of hard core pornography in the UK only applies to purchases from sex shops, so chances are that any DVDs you import will still be seized.

As for your second point, most online retailers won't ship adult DVDs to the UK, and I would imagine Customs will thoroughly check the companies that are known to ship adult DVDs to the UK. I suggest you get some cash together and get a bus to Soho.

Actually, I've just been to the Melon Farmers site and I could be completely wrong, follow the link for the latest customs details....

I tried to order a hard core porn disc from Express and I was flat out told (via the site after I submitted my order) that they do not ship hardcore titles to my country. I tried to order R rated stuff from Amazon (the Playboy/Penthouse variety) and it came through...
