Defiant pornographer Steve Crow has vowed to bring Boobs on Bikes back to Tauranga despite council moves aimed at blocking the topless parade.
CVC Group Ltd, directed by John Malcolm Carr, owns the trademark for “Boobs on Bikes” and Stephen (Steve) Peter Crow, a banned company director who was fined $5000 in the North Shore District Court last year for breaching his four-year ban, is Carr’s “business partner”. Crow was fined plus ordered to pay court costs for being involved in the management of a porn company – Eden Digital Ltd (In Liq), wholly owned by CVC Group – while being a person prohibited from being a director.
Eden Digital Ltd (In Liq) which was incorporated in April 2008 to hold the license for Erotica Lifestyles Expo, an event promoted by the Boobs on Bikes event, was put into liquidation on 22 November 2011, with an estimated deficit (subject to the cost of liquidation) of $434,000.
Mr John M Carr, who directed the failed company until just two months before it was put into liquidation, is now sole director of Esprit Events Limited (a recently incorporated daughter company of CVC Group Ltd) which now holds the license for the Erotica Lifestyles Expo.

Tauranga City Council is proposing to make offensiveness one of the grounds for requiring permission to hold a street parade. But Mr Crow said he would fight the council.
“It won’t make any difference to me whatsoever,” he told the Bay of Plenty Times.
“I will take zero notice of any bylaw they bring in. I’m not vaguely interested in what the Tauranga City Council considers offensive. If they want to waste Tauranga ratepayers’ money, let them. I have plenty of money, I’m happy to fight them.” [Read more…]
