LAWYERS for the promoter of the Harry Potter films are clamping down on so-called 'slash porn' featuring the world-famous boy wizard.
It is estimated that there are more than 700 websites worldwide publishing lurid homosexual tales about the lead character in the best-selling books by JK Rowling.
Mainly penned by women, the genre has seen Harry Potter caught in flagrante with a variety of other males featured in the series.
The authors steadfastly refuse to accept that their work is pornography, claiming instead it is an art form.
But now websites used by the 'slash porn' writers are being closed down after legal warnings.
So, question: If Harry Potter is sold to us as "the mythology of our times", don't the concepts then become community property?I mean, no one's actually going to think that JK Rowling wrote gay sex stories involving her characters....
