Phillipp moved to Scotland some eight years back and is in a relationship with a woman. Starting his political career, Phillip wants to fight against pornography and wants to highlight the harm it causes to normal human relationships. 

In an interview with the Daily Mail, he said:  "I had a negative view of the pornographic industry even before I joined it, but I needed the money.

"In one year I lost five friends in the industry to suicide and drug overdoses. I have seen the harm porn addiction can do. Not all my experiences with it have been negative though - I met some wonderful people.

"One of the main reasons to run for the Scottish Family Party has been my experience and helping people learn from it."

He continued: "Porn is not a men's problem. Both boys and girls consume pornography and both suffer under its impact."

"When I was younger I was not clear what path I would take. I was pushed into identifying myself as something at the age of 32 that I was not.

"The Scottish Family Party best represent my views on life and society."

Given the party's policies, it is surprising and both refreshing to say least that the party is allowing one of its representatives to openly take about his views on life and society. 

It wants children to be taught 'about the correlations between homosexual relationships and physical and mental health problems'.

Phillipp insisted the party does 'not hate or disrespect' the LGBT+ community in a live stream in March.

According to Pink News, he said: "I used to be a gay porn actor and I know about the struggles and confusion of growing up, being unsure about my own sexuality and identity."

Highlighting the problem, Phillipp also says that he completely supports the party's stance on 'removing gay and trans-affirming indoctrination from school' and claimed the UK's education system is 'forcing LGBT+ lifestyles and pornography on children'.

Phillipp was also the leading cast of BBC's documentary last year in which he shared his journey and opened up why he became a men's right activists.

He said: "You are constantly being silenced. Society as a whole has an issue listening to men's issues."
