I know right? Me and my 2 neighbors found their fathers stash of penthouse and other hardcore mags when we were kids. We spent almost a whole day oogling them all. I was 8, the older girl was 9, the younger sister was 6. None of us turned out to be anything other than normal adults....

Heh - Saturn sometimes we think worlds apart and sometimes on the very same page.


I had almost the exact same thought with one exception. You'd need the walls and floors padded. Wouldn't want the kids bumping into something and getting hurt. Just turn them out when they are 18 - surely they'll come out ok after being protected from everything.



Hi, presumably in any large city near you there are adult bookstores, take a look next time you're in town. Notice that they say 'over 18s only', maybe even 'over 21s only' in some states? Notice how your local bar won't (lol, or shouldn't) serve a double vodka to a 12 year old?

Do you agree with the restrictions listed above? Do you think they should apply online as well as real world? If not, what to you is the distinction?

I've only seen one porn store that required the customers to be 21 or older. Always found it odd considering that 10 minutes away is another adult shop (same town mind you) only requires you to be 18. I think it may depend on if that shop has video booths (where men and women come and hook up. biggg cruising spots) or not. Who knows.

why is everyone going on about this being a bad thing? The story clearly states that anyone who wishes to vew porn can so by opting in to have those sites unblocked. I dont have a problem with this. I like to watch porn and I can view pretty much anything that porn has to offer for free. Access to porn is easy that even a small child go probably hit a porn site just by having a typo in an internet address. To say parents should be the blockers is laughable unless you are going to peer over their shoulders throughout the time they spend on the net.

Another thing how is this any different than a cable company blocking tv porn channels unless you pay for them? Isps will only be dooing the same type of thing only instead pf paying to view the porn you just ask the isp to unblock your computer.



This is a bad thing because if you "opt in" then you will be automatically "registered" on a computer somplace as someone who likes to look at porn.

There you have it - the government will then know you look at porn and have you as an official statistic.

Absolutely a NO to this - parents should be able to control what their children look at and if they are computer illiterate then there should be guides and tutorials on how to lock certain sites etc.

The agenda behind this is clearly visible. They way this has been worded is also shocking "to protect the children".

Would you want to be on the governments "watch violent porn list" just because in your own time you had your own pleasures which you are your partner might partake in?

UK plans to block all porn in effort to 'protect children'


www.rawstory.com

The UK's coalition government is discussing a plan that would see all pornographic websites automatically blocked in an effort to keep children from accessing them.

Under the proposed plan, which appears to have the backing of Britain's major Internet service providers, the government would provide ISPs a list of objectionable websites, which the ISPs would automatically block. An Internet surfer would then have to "opt in" to be allowed to see the content.

(visit the link for the full news article)



Uh Oh! Arrogant tyrannical oligarchs vs. Web Porno.

Thats not even fair. That is an auto-loss for the fascist regime. I want to see them try an shutdown lesbo porn in the UK. Not going to happen.Lesbo porn is too strong.

TPTB are handling a flaming hornet's nest. The population WILL defend its porn. The population WILL defend its football.The population WILL defend its beer. Those three are off limits and they know it. I sure hope they attempt to pull that off. The passivized cattle will stampede on their tyrannical behinds if Sunday night football gets removed or they jack their Heineken away from them.


Go ahead and try.

I have to disagree with the majority of posters on this thread, and say that I think this is a good idea.

I watch internet porn, but I'm a responsible adult ( well ''an adult'' anyway LOL ), and I would have no objection to opting-in to view this content.

I think that people get too precious about the internet, and I believe that as the internet becomes more and more ubiquitous in our every day lives, then 'real-world' laws should be synchronised with the way that the internet is governed.

You're not allowed to put hardcore pornographic images in a public place or shop window in the 'real-word', and to view these you have to ''opt-in'' to a private adult-shop.
I don't see how this is any different.


I think that some people are missing the point when they are saying things along the lines of ''people will easily be able to bypass this filter'', because the intention of this proposed legislation is not prevent randy teenagers from viewing pornography !

This is to prevent young children from accidentally viewing inappropriate material.


It is very common for me to stumble across a pornographic image or a link to a pornographic site, just by typing in a perfectly innocuous word or phrase, even when the search option is set to ''moderate''.

America suffered a huge loss in pornographic freedoms under the Bush administration with the 2257 regulations. It was a good example of how Conservatives targeting the adult entertainment industry. Also, here's a fun fact:

You're a producer of a few pornographic films, or just one film. You distribute your DVDs or other material throughout the country. If your film crosses through a state with different laws than your own, you face possible arrest or a fine.

Also, the government thinks it has a right to decide what's obscene and what's not. Max Hardcore, a pornographer was jailed because his content was deemed "obscene." Extreme Associates was a porn company that produced some films. They were shut down because they were deemed "obscene." The Feds had EA ship a DVD to Pittsburgh and then busted them that way. They figured they could convict Extreme Associates owner Rob Black easier in Pittsburgh due to it being more of a conservative city compared to let's say Los Angeles.


American porn has been targeted for a long time now. I wouldn't be surprised if the UK set some useless regulations or restrictions on Entertainment.

The attempt to restrict access to internet pornography is part of wider moves by the government designed to prevent the early sexualisation of children.

It recently announced an independent review that will examine matters such as adult clothing and goods being marketed at children and the influence of raunchy music videos on youngsters.

Turn google safe search up to max, and type in "Leg spread Lucy" (ok, maybe not that, but something kinky), and you won't find porn. Mind you, knock safe search off and no matter what you put in, no matter how innocent, you will get beef curtains.


I don't believe that this is correct.

It blocks out all images for certain words, but I managed to get images of ''beef curtains'' by typing in slang words in other languages while the search setting was on the maximum.

When they say 'children' do they mean up to the age of 18?

Because at 16 years of age kids are legal for consentual sex.

Old enough to do it but not to watch it.


Doobydoll - another Notts resident, good to hear from you!!!

Although you are right about the age to have sex, if you check out the adult shops in our own fair city, they say over 18 only on them, well last time I passed one they did, never actually been in one.

Quite true, but that's a much more natural "ease" into porn than suddenly seeing some of the wacky stuff out there on the web. I'm not sure what I would have thought seeing that vs. a stack of nude mags.... Still though, I contend that this is the responsibility of the parent, not government, and there are plenty of tools available IF parents USE them.

Of course people with children could just register for Open DNS and turn on all the available filtering. Its very effective and its free.

If they are old enough to circumvent they are old enough to see boobies.

You don't need to go the Orwellian route unless there is an ulterior motive.

But it wont stop minors accidently seeing porn online it might cut it down slightly while using a browser, but what about all the mislabeled files on the p2p networks and file hosting sites.

You can have children and still oppose this idea. I have a child and I oppose it.

We have enough of a nanny state as it is in the UK.

This is about the future generations and not giving up any more freedom. Its not about the porn, its about what inevitably follows.

Hi, do you oppose your child not being served alcohol in a pub (assuming of course they are under the legal age)? Do you oppose your child not being able to buy - legally - cigarettes if they are under the legal age?

If you do, then following your comments, why? What difference do you see?

maybe if they pass this, in order to protect the children, they can show which neighbors have opted in on a local map..wouldn't want to let the kids play over there
perhaps some sort of registry required and sent to neighbors whenever a household opts in about objectionable material..have the address posted, perhaps a picture of the person so they know who not to let their children hang around with in case it is let into their homes...

I think this is a great idea...lets make a "sexual opters registry" mandatory..for the children.

I'm an American and have no problems in admitting that I am not overly proud of the way our country is run, but it seems like there has been some serious censorship issues as of late and a lot of it seems to be coming from Europe. I have to admit that I for one do not trust the EU. Any type of power that has that much control over that much of an area is trouble in my opinion. However I have to say that it seems Google has a big hand in censorship lately as well.


Actually, it comes from America. The culture secretary in the UK was given recommendations (which by the way will almost totally not be workable) by the Witherspoon Institute based in Princeton, New Jersey - www.winst.org...

Now that's a set of interesting facts - I'm interested, can you actually back any of them up? One will do please - but I want an authoritative source thanks. I'm not suggesting you are wrong but I just fail to believe that any empirical evidence exists that allows you to make such comments.
