Mull of Kintyre guideline

douglasbgibson:

Mull of Kintyre guideline—a rule that was used by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) to decide whether an image of a man’s penis could be shown. The BBFC would not permit release of a film if the angle it made from the vertical was greater than that of the Kintyre peninsula.  Wiki

Kintyre is highlighted in red. The “Mull of Kintyre” properly refers to the headland at the southernmost end, but in this context the apparent angle of the whole peninsula is the relevant standard.
