This House Would Make a Sex Tape

The 11th Ordinary Meeting of the 165th session of the Literific took place on the 12th of December in the Senate Room.

Dr Goss, Ben Murphy and Marie-Louise Synnott took the bite for proposition. Goss spoke of the dismal quality of current films of the adult persuasion and reasoned that the talented, ‘saucy specimens of desire’, also known as our members, could create something of a far higher calibre.  Mr Murphy told the House that it was their democratic right to make adult home videos. Ms Synnott explained how well equipped the society would be if it chose to go with the motion as she had many contacts that could help make a high quality product.

Mr Jonny Finlay, Ms Emily Walker and Captain Ciaran Gallagher (QUBSU President for 2014/2015) took on the opposition. Finlay questioned the artistic flair behind it and whether it would reflect the Literific. Emily Walker stated the three reasons you’d want to make a sex tape are 1) for fun 2) to remember the good old times and 3) to make money. C’p’n Gallagher said that there is never any guarantee of secrecy, that once it’s made you can’t guarantee that it won’t be leaked.

The motion went to a vote after the floor debate and was surprisingly defeated.

For more information read about this debate in the minutes: there are two sets of minutes because the original ones were deemed inappropriate for the Secretary of State to hear at the NI flags debate.
