Porn film fined for not being explicit enough

True story!

LONDON: Ever bought a book because of its cover and wish you had never done so after reading it? Or for that case a porn film for a jacket that leaves nothing to the imagination, but actually ends up leaving you, shall we say, more than a bit “let-down” after a ruinous evening of viewing?

Well, for all those who have had to suffer the abject disappointment of these situations there is now hope, after a porn supplier was fined 4000 pounds by Surrey magistrates, for failing to deliver what was graphically promised on the video's cover, following a complaint by a disgruntled woman.

“The company had not shown any interest in the consumer's complaint, so the purchaser turned to Trading Standards” The Mirror quoted the Surrey County Council, as saying.

Pabo Ltd was fined 4,000 pounds for false description and #10,500 for selling porn films by mail order, besides being ordered to pay 75 pounds compensation plus 2,044 pounds costs, the paper added.

“Consumers are often embarrassed to complain about purchases such as these and companies take advantage of them.”, the paper quoted Peter Denard of Trading Standards, as saying.
