  1. AUSTRALIANS are more concerned about the level of sex and violence on television than their English counterparts, according to a new study by the broadcasting watchdog. But the Australian Communications and Media Authority report has found excessive commercials are our biggest bugbear. The focus groups and survey of 1250 people over the first half of this year found 44 per cent of Australians had general concerns over risque television content. In a result attributed by experts to looser laws in Australia, ACMA noted the proportion was more than the 40 per cent identified by a similar British Government study. The report found 45 per cent of Australians listed excessive commercials as their biggest concern. Television violence (43 per cent) was the second biggest concern followed by too many reality programs (36 per cent).
  2. I'm sorry but I think 11 is too young for a little boy to decide he wants to become a girl:no: A LESBIAN couple in California who say their 11-year-old son Tommy wants to be a girl named Tammy are giving their child hormone blockers that delay the onset of puberty, so that he can have more time to decide if he wants to change his gender. The couple's supporters say the Hormone Blocking Therapy has only minor side effects and is appropriate for a child who is unsure of his gender. "This is definitely a changing landscape for transgender youth," said Joel Baum, director of education and training for Gender Spectrum, a California-based non-profit group. "This is about giving kids and their families the opportunity to make the right decision." But critics of the treatment say 11-year-olds are not old enough to make life-altering decisions about changing their gender, and parents should not be encouraging them.
  3. Following the transmission of ABC's Four Corners program earlier this month, which aired allegations that criminal gangs lure women to Australia and then force them into slavery in Sydney and Melbourne brothels. Australia's student visa program will be investigated following allegations that women entering Australia on student visas are being forced into the sex industry. It said that if they refuse, the women are beaten and their families are threatened. The Immigration Department routinely carries out compliance operations in the sex industry with the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The operations are designed to ensure brothel owners are not employing foreign nationals working without a valid visa. But Immigration Minister Chris Bowen says following this month's "particularly serious and disturbing allegations", a thorough analysis will be done. "Allegations of illegal work and the exploitation of workers in any industry by unscrupulous employers or migration agents are taken very seriously," he said in a statement. Mr Bowen says if any links to human trafficking are found they will be referred to the AFP for further action.
  4. Hi everyone, I've managed to get most of the my documents ready for my application. The remaining section I need to cover is evidence to prove my relationship with my long term (same sex) partner. A bit of background: we've been together for over 9 years (we met in June 2002), dated for 8 and didn't move in together until June 2010 as we had to first finish studying and also get our families to accept our relationship. We've lived together since then, we've even moved once. My question relates to what evidence I need to provide. I propose the following: We have a lease for our first and second apartments, both leases are in our name and cover a period of more than 12 months We traveled to Australia in 2009 - I have our e-tickets and iteneraries, as well as the ETA date for my passport and the immigration/emigration stamps from his passport Photos - we have photos of us together at parties, as well as on holidays (including the trip to Australia). Unfortunately the photos aren't dated on the actual photos though. We can get friends to write letters vouching that our relationship is true and genuine - while I'm on this, do these need to be made under oath at a police station? Or can they just be signed? We share the cost of living - for practical reasons we don't have a joint bank account. We do have records of who spends what, and then we settle at the end of the month (whoever paid more gets re-imbursed) - we can get bank statements showing the transfers between our accounts and I can provide the records (it's just an excel spreadsheet) Would this probably be sufficient? Has anyone been through this before?
  5. BRITAIN may not boast the best weather but that doesn't stop us indulging in alfresco love-making, an exclusive Sun sex survey reveals. Just over half of the 2,124 people questioned said they'd romped in the great outdoors. The survey reveals that raunchy Brits are also a fan of sex toys — with 43 per cent admitting to using them — while 40 per cent owned up to getting jiggy in a public place. A third of those quizzed said they had watched porn with their lover, while 18 per cent of ladies and nine per cent of blokes confessed to dressing up in a fantasy costume to please their partner. But while we might be having adventurous sex, we're not having it very often. When asked how many times they would get busy in the bedroom each month, nearly one third claimed NOT AT ALL. 48% of men had never looked at porn online. 8% admitted looking regularly. The rest of the survey can be found here http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/3817615/Its-great-outdoors.html

    Sex please, we are Aussies

    But only a small minority are getting as much action as they'd like. A survey by dating website RSVP found 37 per cent of Australians - male and female - consider three to six times a week the ideal frequency for sex. However, 46 per cent want sex three times a day or more during the first month of a new relationship. And only 16 per cent of those in a relationship and four per cent of singles are having their preferred level of sex. "Physical contact and sex are important elements of healthy relationships and yet these results show us that across the board the majority of people in relationships would like to be having sex more often," RSVP's John Aitken says. The survey of 5300 people, carried out by Nielsen, found Generation Y (generally those born in the late 20th Century) are most likely to want sex up to six times a week. As age increases desire for frequent sex falls, the survey found. More than 90 per cent of Aussies rated sexual chemistry as "important" when selecting a partner http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/breaking-news/sex-yes-please-were-aussie-nielsen-survey-says/story-e6frf7jx-1226140892346
  7. OMG what has happened to PIO, I only posted one little news article and now all CTF has gone sex mad, maybe we need to have an XRated Forum:tongue::laugh:
  8. love,and trust are the most important things i feel in a relationship--so my hypothetical question is does sex keep you together--lets say in the:Randy-git:department of the relationship--your partner does not fulfill you--would you allow your partner to have sex with someone else who fulfills them in that department--and allow them to keep the relationship with you the same--which is based on love,and trust--for me the answer i:no:how about you,and why do you think like that:wubclub:

    Man sued by wife for lack of sex

    It's bad enough when your wife divorces you over a lack of sex and the judge rules you "solely responsible." It's worse when she takes you back to court two years later and garners 10,000 euro in damages. But this apparently happened in—where else?—France, where a man known in court documents as Jean-Louis B. was ordered to pay out around $14,000 to his ex, answering the prayers of dozens of stand-up comedians and talk show monologue writers: The 47-year-old ex-wife then took him back to court demanding 10,000 euros in compensation for "lack of sex over 21 years of marriage". The ex-husband claimed "tiredness and health problems" had prevented him from being more attentive between the sheets. But a judge in the south of France's highest court in Aix-en-Provence ruled: "A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent. The ruling is based on "article 215 of France's civil code, which states married couples must agree to a 'shared communal life,'" which the judge holds includes sex.

    sex and the city ....

    i actually watched 3 episodes the other day and found it quite funny .....never watched it before .........im sure my wife would enjoy it too ......so ...is it worth us watching it .........
  11. Hey there... this is my first time on here so hello Quick summary of my position...I had a 175 visa granted in July 2010, I'm in a civil partnership and my partner, Michelle, is included on my visa. I'm 33 and have always wanted to start a family..we've looked into options here in the UK and its very doable at a clinic so we were going to try for me to get pregnant. Before we did I thought I'd look into our options regarding the visa etc It seems if we have a baby over here we'd have to apply for a separate visa for the baby after they were born which can be time consuming and expensive..is this right? Alternatively we could get pregnant here and go to Oz and I could have the baby there? Am I right in thinking the baby is then an Aussie citizen? That would be fine...but over here if we go through a clinic both our names go on the birth certificate..would that be the case in Oz? And if not are there any alternative to give my partner legal rights? Option 3 is to wait and go to a clinic in Oz when we get there to look into getting pregnant...however I understand that the laws are not the same in all states..we were looking at Adelaide as our starting point? Would we as a same sex couple get access to fertility services in SA? I understand we'd have to pay, thats only the same as here. Apologies for this being a long one..We're hoping to move to Oz ASAP but selling our house is keeping us back and now we feel all confused over all this. Please help!!!! Thanks, Claire

    457 de facto same sex

    Hi All I'm new to the forum and this is my first post, having had a look around existing posts to see if i could find an answer to my question and i haven't been able to, i'd appreciate any advice that people have to offer or experience of those that have had this issue. My partner and I are in a same sex relationship, we have known each other since March of 2010, have been in a relationship since August of 2010 and have lived together since October of 2010. We have decided to emigrate to Australia and i wanted to seek some clarity around our visa situation. I can get sponsorship from the DHS for a 457 Working visa and i know that this includes family members, however, our relationship does not seem to meet the criteria of what is defined as 'same sex defacto' for the purposes of the visa. ***** What is the relationship requirement? Applicants seeking to demonstrate a de facto relationship with their partner must provide evidence that for the period covering at least the twelve months before the visa application is lodged: they had a mutual commitment to a shared life to the exclusion of all others the relationship between them is genuine and continuing they live together, or do not live separately and apart, on a permanent basis. ***** I would appreciate any advice that can be offered, thanks for your time!

    Same Sex Defacto Visa

    We are hoping that someone can give us some help here. My partner and I commenced our relationship in May 2009 but she had to leave Oz due to threats from my ex-husband... she came back to Oz on a 3 mth ETA in July 2009. We have been living together ever since. On expiry of her 3mth ETA we applied for a 12 mth long stay visa with me as her financial sponsor. We have applied for her police clearance and once this is through are looking at applying for the defacto visa.. Our question is ? Has anyone else been granted a defacto visa from a Long Stay Tourist Visa (676)? We are well aware that oz immigration recognises same sex couples but not sure about the application for a defacto visa directly from a Long Stay 676... has anyone else applied from a 676? We have been advised that under special circumstances the 12 mth living together period can be waived if you can prove you have been in a committed relationship for 12 mths? Any advice on this? In addition, what happens if at the end of her Long Stay .. in July 2010... can she travel to NZ and apply for an additional 3mth ETA to allow us to finalise the Defacto Visa process? We are scheduled to see an Immigration Lawyer on receipt of her Scotland Yard check but any tips./hints/advice in the interim would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks
  15. Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum, and was just after a little help. My partner moved to Australia with his family last year as perminent residents, and I followed 2 months after on a working holiday visa as it was the fastest and cheapest way for me to join them. Now we are ready for me to apply for perminent residency, but before we do I just thought I'd check a few things... We are applying for a partner visa, which I know covers same sex relationships, but I am a little worried as to what we have to include to prove we are actually a couple. We don't have joint bank accounts or tennancy agreements because we have both just entered out twenties and lived with out partents in the UK. We do have things like travel documents, diaries, concert tickets, photo's, etc. Will this be enough? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks in advance :wink:

    Sex & Migration - A Link?

    Hi all. I apologise to the ladies of PIO as to the title of this post, there again there may be some ladies who are of the same persuasion as the men, (I wish, never met one yet:biglaugh:), read on to figure that one out. Anyway I think I may have discovered a link between sex and migration, it has yet to scientifically proven but I am going with it. Allegedly MEN think about sex every seven-seconds, APPARENTLY. If it were true I would imagine the world would come, (no pun intended) to a grinding halt. So here is my question. To those of you who are just starting out on the migration process, or those who are well down the road in the migration nightmare, do you find yourself thinking of Australia ALL the time. Has it impacted on your daily lives to such an extent that to be able to function as a 'normal' rational human being is nearly impossible? I know the original tenure of this post was rather glib and humourous (I hope so anyway) but I am very serious about my question. Have you for all intents and purposes become a shadow of your normal self. Do you wake and rise in the morning with thoughts and emotions of Australia on your mind, and no matter what you do the thoughts you are having cannot be ignored. Have you become a migration snob. You know, where all you do is talk and pontificate about Australia to all and sundry. Do people cross the road to avoid you because they KNOW that Australia will eventually raise its head and they will be battered into submission and eventually have to engage in a conversation that they have little interest in? Do you find yourself changing into a wholly different person? One that is unrecognisable to all those around them? Have you become rather short tempered with all and sundry? Have you found yourself not being able to carry on a 'normal' daily life because Australia is all encompassing? Or have you been fortunate enough to have been able to carry on with your lives with little thought of your application? Have you more the attitude of QUE SARA SARA, and except that the whole process is to some degree out of your control once the application has been submitted? I only ask as when I applied many, many years ago I for one found it extremely difficult to act rationally and objectively at times. My life was turned upside down and each and every second of each day was filled with thoughts about Australia and what my future held. I know that any application to emigrate is for the most part a 'voluntary' action, one we take which is free from outside influences, so in essence surely it can't be THAT important, can it? Do you wish at times that you had never started the whole process, because to have to face the possibility of rejection is a bit too much? Or will you except the final outcome and take it in good spirits and except the decision arrived at by the immigration authorities? If the link between sex and migration can be proved by this post then all of you will have contributed to the good of mankind (womankind, thingy kind, PC kind, non-sexual kind) I'm not going back to that thread again,:wink:). But there again I have a feeling that your thoughts about your migration plans will far outweigh those of sex. Thanks for your interest and looking forward to the responses.

    Same sex partner visa

    Hi everyone! I am currently in Australia as a visitor and will be applying for the partner visa onshore (my partner is an Australian citizen). Yes, we are in a same sex relationship. We've been in this relationship for almost 2 years now. We have so much evidence that our relationship is genuine and continuing.. but there's one bloody issue I am worried about.... My partner's family/relatives know everything about our relationship and they treat me like a real member of their clan. On the contrary, we have kept our relationship a secret from my side of the family due to acceptance issues and values. Will this affect the decision of the DIAC on my partner visa application?? Pls. help. I'm stressed!!! :arghh:
  20. I have lodged my application on 15th June 2009, before 1 July.. from what I read my application should be processed as the Interdependent Visa 826 then 814? but on the receipt from DIAC Melbourne its says that I am being considered for the 820 Visa?? Also, can I check the status of my app online when family residency is concerned??
  21. Hi This question is on behalf of friends of mine. They are both ladies (50) in a same sex relationship of about two years. They got engaged last Christmas. The problem is one is an Australian Citizen living in Australia and the otheris a British Citizen living in England. They see each other as often as they can about every 3 months but cannot live together without a visa. Is this possible as they want to be together in Australia. Is an Independency Visa possible? They have proof of their ongoing relationship letters, phone calls, e-mails, photos, engagement cards, travel documents and commitment to each other ie joint bank accounts etc. Thank you for any help. Susan PS I am applying for a CP143 visa

    Same Sex Partners

    Hi All, We have applied online for a 175 visa and awaiting a case officer (like many of you!). Have read some conflicting information on the web which stated that same sex partners are not eligible for interdependency status on a skilled migration visa. Desperately hoping this is not true - Any information gratefully received.

    Interdependency (same sex) Visa

    Hi to all. This is my first post, as I only discovered this site today!! My partner and I are planning on moving to Oz next year. I'm Australian, he's British, and we've been together for over 6 years. Does any know how long the above visa types are typically taking to process?? And also, I'm investigating using a migraton agent to help with our application. They seem to be exthausionately expensive, I'd be interested to hear views on whether it's worth using one, and any recommendations on who to use.... Looking forward to your replies.. Cheers Cam
  24. I have lived in the UK (as an AUS citizen) for 20 years and am about to apply for an interdependants visa for British partner for (17 years) and wondered if anyone had any experience in getting this visa. I am going to be his sponsor him but would like to know exactly how much money they like to see you have for partner support for the initial 2 years. Obviously we will both be seeking work but he is a university lecturer and self employed It consultant and more likely to find work quicker than I as a musical composer.

    same sex couples!!

    Hi All!! Going to see a migration agent in couple of weeks, but there is one thing i'm unsure about. As i am in a same sex relationship we thought we could migrate as a couple, but we were advised to go as friends as the Oz Government were pretty conservative about these issues. Is this right or is the agent just wanting more money???
