LONDON — Ben Westwood, son of fashion legend Vivienne Westwood, will lead a group of bound, gagged and chained models through the streets of London this week.

The BDSM-inspired protest is to protest the new British anti-pornography laws that will be enforced beginning 2009. The Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill would deem such acts as "extreme pornography," even among consenting adults.

According to a ContactMusic.com report, protestors from The Consenting Adult Action Network (CAAN), organized the protest.

Westwood, a photographer, and CAAN argue that the government would legislate the sexual choices of adults. Photographer Westwood says, "Government gets away with murder when it comes to legislating about our sexual behavior, because we are a strait-laced nation and far too many of us are embarrassed talking about sex."

The demonstration is scheduled to occur on Tuesday in London.
