Author & Campaigner

Jerry Barnett is an author and campaigner, who runs the Sex and Censorship YouTube channel, podcast and blog. In addition to his campaigning and writing work he is a photographer, technologist, entrepreneur and parent. He belongs to a large, eccentric, multiracial London family. His book, Porn Panic,  was published by Zero Books in August 2016.

Jerry has campaigned for some years against British censorship laws and regulations, and led a long campaign against the UK’s “porn block”, which would have introduced sweeping internet censorship, and which was eventually scrapped by the incoming Johnson government in 2019. He regularly writes about the dangers facing British civil liberties, including overbroad hate speech laws, and the grassroots intolerance of both the extreme Left and extreme Right. He is dedicated to defending personal liberty, free speech and sexual freedom, and makes regular appearances in the media, at university debates, and as a public speaker.  More info at
