Default Major porn sites will be BLOCKED in France without age-verification

[Only Registered Users Can See LinksClick Here To Register]
28 December 2021

Major porn sites will be BLOCKED unless they bring in measures to ensure users are over 18 under new French rules

France's Higher Audiovisual Council will ask a judge to block the sites tomorrow
Adult websites Pornhub, xHamster, XVideos, XNXX and Tukif are facing blackout
The council says they are breaking the law by not having stricter age controls
But porn sites argue such checks would infringe upon adult users' privacy

Honestly, I am actually a HUGE proponent of stricter age controls on pornography. There have some very disturbing trends regarding porn addiction in kids and I really think greater care should be taken over the issue.

I think the far more disturbing trend is the utter lack of parenting that would lead to such a thing becoming a problem in the first place. There is very little chance a child would become full-on addicted to porn without completely negligent parents.

Besides, I think you're missing the troubling implications that come from the government enforcing this kind of thing. They've continuously used age verification and "think of the children" logic as a Trogan horse to pass more and more censorship against porn. So all this will do is open the door to more censorship, especially if America follows suit.

Easy to say, but monitoring your child full-time is very hard, and maybe not the right approach. Do you make sure your kids don't have access to a phone or a computer? If you don't give them a phone, they will probably break down and call you abusive. If they do get the phone, they'll see porn, and maybe get addicted. You don't need to be negligent parents for addiction to win. Addicts are very good at hiding their addiction.

Anyway, there's always the question of what porn is, they'll find plenty of things on twitter and other sites, even if they can't sign up for certain websites.

Well there is certainly plenty of negligent parents out there, no doubt about it. But we also live in very strange times considering that the internet has only really been around for roughly 20 years and we are beginning to see a lot of negative consequences from it. Porn is ubiquitous with the internet. It's accessible on major sites like pornhub and is all over twitter and instagram and many other social networking. I think something needs to be done to protect children on the other end of things. Parents can only do so much. Also, parents are always fighting a losing battle with kids as far as technology goes; or at least in most households that is the case.

I was actually very angry when Nikolas Kristof's article about pornhub caused it to be put in the spotlight recently in a negative manner. There is definitely a puritan sect of society that would love to end the porn industry. With that said, I still don't think that that means we should do nothing about limiting the access to kids who really have no business looking at it at 10 years of age. That Billie Eilish singer recently talked on Howard Stern I believe about her porn addiction that started when she was like 11 years old. Insane and sad.
