This video sums up what I'm talking about: https://youtu.be/-92AUypzmAU

So as some of you already know, the UK intends to block all internet access to adult material come July. They claim it's to protect children. That is obviously false as any halfwit with a VPN can get around their "block". This video sums up why it looks like our government is creating the foundation from which they can block any material they don't want the public viewing. Russia did the exact same thing not to long ago and it resulted in massive internet censorship.


It turns out that the PRIVATE COMPANY that will be handling most of the "Age Verification" is also the same private company that owns most of the major adult internet sites. At this point it increasingly looks like some ministers were lobbied to pass this "porn block" with the real intention of both lining "mindgeeks" pockets.

It is not internet censorship and is definitely to protect younger people, watching adult content can destroy people and the relationships that they have

I do believe it's intended to protect younger people. However, it clearly won't, and at the cost of a massive security and privacy risk.

First of all, any and all teenagers who want access to porn, will get it, via worse sites with highly illegal material, the deep web, or by using VPN's, so this solves nothing.

Secondly, sure, a lot of porn is destructive, which is why people should be educated about what a healthy sex life is. There are sex positive porn videos that don't warp peoples minds. Trying to block all porn won't help society, I can assure you that.

3rd, the UK government previously already banned all porn depicting female orgasms, but not male, so forgive me if I don't have confidence in their ability to remain objective when deciding what is good or not for general society.

4th, if they block this, why wouldn't they attempt to block other things they don't want the public viewing? All other governments (bar non) who have passed similar laws did exactly that.

You tell people not to watch this video but you've provided no sources for any counter points. Just your own conservative views.

Have you ever used "the deep web"? It is a nightmare to navigate.

It's existed as long as humans have.

Porn was invented before the written word. No ban will ever work.

Yep, it sure is, but if there is any group of people motivated to learn that ****, it'd be horny teenagers.

Only perverts look at porn. The government would be right for criminalising access to it.

I had typed a reply but it seems I forgot to send it. Anyhow I was saying that my focus is more about the deteriorating state of internet freedom in the UK. Not really so much about porn.

Whilst Theresa May is in office this sort of thing is expected.

Just watch this video of her dancing and you will see, she is a complete nonce.

Police state? Police too afraid to implement force and extra powers to stop this scourge of knife crime - imo powers like stop and search should be increased...


As for this regulation, the epitome of the nanny state, not thought through, policing content and parenting should be in the hands of parents not the government policing adult content...
