John Malcolm Carr (see photo http://www.carr.co.nz/images/jmc.jpg), director of the NZ registered company Eden Digital Ltd, resides in the United States, the country of origin of many of the DVDs containing sexually explicit content that his hardcore porn distribution company imports into New Zealand. A significant number contain “a high degree of degrading, dehumanising and demeaning sexual conduct which, combined with the manner of presentation of this conduct, results in the women involved, and by extension women in general, being highly degraded, dehumanised and demeaned”(see full report below).
Of the seven DVDs Eden Digital submitted for classification to the OFLC that were clasified during the month of September this year, two were classified “objectionable” (i.e. they were banned) based on their depiction of sexual content that degraded women. No opportunity was given for Mr John M Carr’s company to make any excisions. Of the remaining five DVDs imported by Mr John M Carr’s company, two contained sexually degrading content that had to be removed (excised) before the publications could be issued a label allowing for distribution within New Zealand. This was done and advertisements were added promoting the NZ hardcore porn magazine NZX published by banned company director Steve Crow. The other three DVDs focused exclusively on sexually explicit content but did not require excisions before they could be distributed.
Mr John M Carr, whose most recent entries on his websites (www.johnmcarr.com and www.carr.co.nz) were in 2006, is recorded as a certified public accountant (CPA) based in San Antonio, Texas. He is both a NZ and US citizen. As the Society stated on page 4 of its December Newsletter (available on its website):
“In short, the porn sleaze money trail extends from the registered offices of Eden Digital Ltd and Velocity Partners Ltd in North Shore, Auckland, (both properties owned by – Kinetiq Ltd – directed by John M Carr and owned by Velocity Partners Ltd – also directed and owned by Carr) right across the blue Pacific to John M. Carr’s business address in sunny sexy San Antonio Texas.”
The “Texas-Godzone Connection” as we referred to it on page 14 of the December Newsletter, is a “sleaze money trail”, involving US porn directors Antom Slayer, Oliver Brand, Vincent Voss, Stoney Curtis, numerous porn stars and their promoters (see Eden Digital imported DVDs below). [Read more...]
