A shipment of books bound for the pointedly named Montreal bookshop Priape was seized by the Canada Border Services Agency which declared them obscene, according to xtra.ca.
The books included two volumes of Dads & Boys by British artist Josman. In this explicit tale of a hot youth who “seduces” (that’s the word the artist prefers) his hot father, 35-year-old Jack regards 18-year-old Justin with awe: “My son was telling me he too was gay, and to complicate things even more, he was also flaunting his incredible ERECT MANHOOD at me…. In no time I became ROCK HARD behind my towel…. I just stood there admiring the size and beauty of my boys penis. I was filled with pride — and LUST! … A father is not supposed to do things like this with his own son! … I guess it would be a real shame to let these big ol’ BONERS go to waste, huh? … As a proud father, I felt it was my duty and pleasure to give my own son the best blow job he ever had…. If only his mother could see us now. The poor bitch would have a heart attack!” After a golden-showers session, Justin suggests: “Dad … sit on my face while I eat your delicious butt. Mmm, yummy!” In this interview, Josman muses: “Well, I’m fascinated and turned on by incest. I realise that some people may be disgusted…. Alas, I haven’t experienced twins, brothers or father/sons yet, but I live in hope.”
According to xtra.ca, the books “were determined to be obscene” based on certain factors specified by CBSA spokesperson Chris Williams: “The indicators ranged from depictions of incest to sex with pain and sexual mutilation, defecation and vomiting,” Williams explained. Priape purchaser Denis Leblanc “didn’t know the storylines of the books when the store ordered them,” xtra.ca continues. “CBSA says that if a shipment arrives at a border that arouses a border agent’s suspicion … the agent inspects it and checks any titles against a database of previously examined materials…. If the agent finds anything that might be obscene, it is sent to Prohibited Importations Unit (PIU) in Ottawa, where CBSA says specially trained agents examine the material more closely and make a decision.”
In other news, an author who is also a Washington State University professor sued by a student alleging sexual harassment has resigned his post. “Bernardo Gallegos, a professor of multicultural education … is accused of making advances toward a married graduate student in his home in February 2005,” according to the Seattle Times. “In exchange for his resignation, he will be paid more than $87,000 to buy out his tenure, though he will lose some benefits. His salary was more than $132,000 a year.” Heyyyy, even accused criminals hafta eat. Gallegos is the editor of Performance Theories in Education: Power, Pedagogy, and the Politics of Identity and author of two forthcoming books: Indigenous Narratives, Postcolonial Performances, and the Politics of Identity in Education and An Indian, But a Peon: Criados, Genizaros, and Coyotes in New Mexico.
