Yellow Triangle

Robert Schofield of Wellington was recently convicted of importing DVDs involving urophilia into New Zealand (seemingly for his own use).

11 DVDs seems like a lot, and the guy seems to have exacerbated his fine (and maybe the new’s interest) by fighting the court and censorship office, but…

1. Likes and dislikes aside, why is the state involved in what consenting adults do in the bedroom? Why does Judge Harrop think it necessary Robert’s clients know his sexual predilections?

2. Why is the act itself legal, but depiction of it isn’t?

(Title being a play on the colour of urine and the song by Christy Moore on speaking up for your rights.)
