Residents of a quiet cul-de-sac have let their neighbour know they are not happy with his home-based livelihood - making pornography films.
Bristol porn protest
James Edwards (L) walks past his neighbours protesting outside his home
James Edwards, who lives on The Coppice in Bristol, runs a porn movie studio from his premises.
Locals believe living next door to a blue film set is a "disgraceful situation" and have demonstrated outside Mr Edwards' house.
"Everyone is angry, we pay high rates in this area and expect some support from the authorities," resident Zena Robbins said.
"This is a nice area we chose to live in but it is no longer a happy community."
Holding placards bearing slogans including "Pimps out, Values Up" the 12 protesters confronted Edwards, 42.
The residents claim men come and go from the detached property in the affluent cul-de-sac on a half-hourly basis almost every day, often hiding their faces as they leave.
This is a nice area we chose to live in but it is no longer a happy community.
Zena Robbins, a resident of The Coppice
Another neighbour Fred Hillberg said they wanted action because their lives were "being made a misery".
However, Mr Edwards claims his "health is deteriorating because of the stress" his neighbours are putting him under.
He told the Bristol Evening Post: "The police have fully investigated the complaints from my neighbours and as far as I am aware the police don't have an issue with me."
Two years ago Mr Edwards signed an 'acceptable behaviour contract' - a voluntary agreement made between someone involved in anti-social behaviour and the police - after it was claimed "pornographic activities" were taking place in his front garden.
South Gloucestershire Council said there were no breaches of that six-month agreement and police said there was no evidence of any criminal activity since.
And an Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: "We believe the occupier is legitimately running a pornographic recording studio."

Sex film maker in attack on wife
A sex film producer has been given a suspended prison sentence for pouring a kettle of boiling water over his porn star wife.
James Edwards caused Gemma Johnson unintentional grievous bodily harm after she threatened to leave him in August 2003, Bristol Crown Court heard. Edwards, 38, who has spina bifida, was given a 12 month sentence suspended for two years after admitting the charge.
His estranged wife was earlier cleared of trying to help him commit suicide.
Gemma Johnson, 21, had been accused of feeding Edwards paracetamol tablets and making him a hanging noose because she wanted his money.
She had denied aiding and abetting the suicide attempt in December 2003 and was found not guilty by a jury at the court on Tuesday.
The couple, who had married in February 2003, split up in August when their relationship became violent.
Mr Edwards, who directed films and appeared with Ms Johnson, told the jury he had wanted to die because he still loved her and wanted to make her happy.
A friend of mine who is escorting, had photos taken by the person who apparently runs Sugarbabes escorts out of Bristol. She did not agree for the photos to be used or profile to be set up on *********.
Both of these have now happened and has made her out to do all sorts of things that she would never consider or want to do. The photos have been published without her consent, even though ********* say they have got a copy of the model release form (which is false).
It is causing massive upset in her life and just wants the profile to be removed permanently.
********* have given no help whatsoever and Sugarbabes do not answer their emails.
Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated, on possible ways to solve it.
P.S. The reason no consent was given as the person taking the photographs got a little rough and harassed my friend with threats etc after the shoot.
Just saw this thread after posting a similar reply on another.
From the girls that I have spoken to there seems to be no reasoning with the man. The best advice would be to get her to get a solicitor to right to him a letter asking for her to be removed. He can easily make up a release and sign it himself saying she signed it so it may be a bit tricky. But saying she is offering services when she is not is illegal so she should go along that line. I think most people who saw the site and anyone who knows anything about him will know that most these girls are not working for him anyway. Why would they?
I am so glad someone has highlighted this issue. Let me assure you this man has not given up. He continues to harrass escorts and models to the point of life threatening abuse.
Not only did he threaten my family and advertise my parents house as an incall place, he also breached his restraint order that I had filed against him by posting my pictures up on A****W*** and making money from them.
If any girls are thinking about joining sugarbabes escorts or wanting to become a glamour model this is the last person to go to. He has no ties with the industry at all and makes out he is some big shot who knows lots of people. All he has done is made a bit of money from selling films that he made with his ex girlfriend and money he makes from false advertisment.
He will also try and scare you by showing you a gun, he tells you it is real and that it is for secuirity. When the police searched his house, they found out it was fake, it is in fact an expensive BB Gun so do not fall for this one, it scared the hell out of me.
I think the reason for him being so obbsessive and nasty is that he has a crippling disability called spinabifidor (That is spelt wrong but you get the drift) so he doesn't care how he treats other people.
The amount of drugs he does (or has done) probably does not help his mental frame of mind either.
I cannot stress enough that this man is DANGEROUS. He likes his girls young and innocent looking.
He will try and get you to stay in his bed, if you say no he will basically kick off and get aggressive, if you do stay in his bed...well you can guess for yourself what he wants.
The pictures/films I was shown on his computer were disturbing. Women in nappies, women cutting themselves while sniffing drugs, him being violated from behind. It's scary and I knew I had to leave.
I had in fact contacted the police, like many other girls I have spoken to that have gone through similar circumstances with him and for some reason they ARE interested at whats going on but seem to be relluctant to do anything about it. I will let you decide on why you think they choose to be relluctant....
His harrassment went on for the best part of 5 or 6 months but some girls have been dealing with him for years!! One girl still gets hassle off him 6 years later.
Be carefull girls, all the best. x x
Not all of the pictures he took - he actually stole photos from a friend of mine's *********, told them she stole them from him and had her page taken off. He sent them a fake release form and in order to actually get any page back on there (as he kept finding the profile and having it taken down because he had all her photos) she had to email a scanned copy of her passport.
She was lucky it seems, she went on tour in Bristol for him and let him pick her up in London and take her down, take her out while she was there etc.
She is no longer working but her pictures are once again up on a fake page for her but ** don't listen and haven't taken them down.
The guy has a terrible reputation throughout the west country and beyond:http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...=james+edwards
I think that his ex-wife has also caused trouble for him:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/4114943.stm
