About Us

Backlash is an organisation providing academic, legal, and campaigning resources defending freedom of sexual expression. We support the rights of adults to participate in all consensual sexual activities and to watch, read and create any fictional interpretation of such in any media.

Backlash was created in 2005 to collate evidence for an informed debate on censorship and to oppose criminalisation of ownership of material just because the Home Office finds it abhorrent.

It continues to provide legal advice and defend those caught up in these new laws, raise awareness about why the laws are wrong, won’t work, and have unintended consequences.

Backlash is formally the “trading name” of a not for profit company  (registered 05272470).
