British Politician Denies Making Gay Porn
The film, “HMS Discovery: A Love Story” depicts naked men involved in heavy petting, according to the London Evening Standard, which obtained a copy of the tape. The film features scenes of men fondling and undressing each other, and a naked man performing oral sex.
Ironically, Barnbrook’s political party had run on a platform of promising to remove homosexuality from society, saying being gay is “wrong and unhealthy for any community.”
“I am not interested in this,” Barnbrook said. “It was an art film — end of story. It was not a bloody porn film. The only nudity in it is a couple of guys running in a river.”
The conservative Barnbrook also denies writing the erotic commentary that accompanies the films’ sexual acts.
Barnbrook is credited as the producer and director of the film, which he said “Is not about homosexuality — it’s about sexuality. This was done when I was a student. It was part of my extra education; part of my studies and that was it.”
The Londoner considers his film a work of art and not pornography despite the sexual depictions.
“Anything to do with my past politics or my past work, I am not interested in commenting on,” he said. “This was sometime back in the mid-80s.”
