Death to the UK’s porn block (for now)

Death to the UK’s porn block (for now)

There’s good news from the UK Government: plans to introduce a nationwide “porn block” have been shelved. If they’d gone ahead every porn site serving content into the UK would have had to challenge the visitor to prove they were over 18. Not with a timid pop-up, but with proper verification.

The whole thing was getting silly. Asking people to provide their credit card details just to look at content wasn’t going to help build trust. Other ideas, such as using your passport or buying a verification card from a newsagent, didn’t fly either. When stories emerged that PornHub’s owner was trying to build a national database of porn users privacy came rushing to the front.

For now the plans have been scrapped. Needless to say privacy advocates are happy and the “what about the children?” brigade less so. There’s the usual talk of children being put at risk from harmful content and little about the conversations parents should be having with their children but won’t.

I’ve little doubt the plans will resurface in another form. For now at least we Brits can all enjoy our adult content without filter.
