The sale or distribution of hardcore pornography through any channel was prohibited until the rules were relaxed in 2002, however the rules are still quite strict . The possession of pornographic images for private use has never been an offence in the UK. This means that UK citizens have always been able to access content on sites overseas without breaking any laws, except for child pornography.
Adult pornography that falls under the Government's classification of "extreme pornography" is illegal to possess as of January 26, 2009, carrying a three year prison sentence. This was proposed by the Government after the murder of Jane Longhurst, claiming that such material was viewed by murderer Graham Coutts. Critics of the law point out that the law will criminalise images of legal acts between consenting adults  and have criticised the lack of evidence of a link between viewing such material, and violent crime. The perils behind the law are debated in the 2010 documentary Hanging Perverts.
Internet service providers started the Internet Watch Foundation in 1996 to watch for pornographic content that is in violation of British law and report it to the police. The web filter Cleanfeed is used by the largest ISP BT Group to block sites on the IWF's list which includes sites that are "criminally obscene" as well as child pornography.. The government ordered all ISPs to have a cleanfeed system by the end of 2007.
People selling adult videos, including pornography, to children are to escape prosecution after the discovery of a Whitehall blunder that means that the 1984 law regulating the video industry was never enacted.
The disclosure that for 25 years the Act governing the classification and sale of videos, video games and now DVDs was never brought into force is a big embarrassment to both Conservative and Labour governments.

No pedophiles are most likely already dealing with blocks they will be in the "need/want to bypass group", If I could find that article "fiction piece" *not going to happen * you will see what was having to be dealt with in that regard.
No you need to get out more if you think porn isn't mainstream, shall we list some things that really aren't mainstream? Let me just throw LARP in to the ring
It dosen't that's what I've been saying it's a completely unworkable system with so many holes it's not even funny.

You do know that it works by looking for certain amounts of fleshy tones right?
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.

My personal feeling is that this has VERY little to do with pornography, or 'protecting children' per se, and much more to do with Big brother finding another way to creep in and institute internet policing and control of ANY content.
Start with one subject that many will likely not oppose. Get full control of it. Then onto the next subject, on and on.
This is all about CONTROL.

When I hear things like this, it helps me more appreciate living in America. For as we all know, our government is growing and taking more control over its citizens, but at least we have our Bill of Rights, and Constitution, and 3 Branch government, which is slowing down the erosion of our freedoms. Please i mean no offense to any citizens of other countries out there, but America was built on the idea of freedom and democracy, which other countries in the world claim to be democratic, such as France, Russia, etc. But it is not a true democracy.
Then I think about places like North Korea, or China, that are just ridiculously dictatorial countries and I really appreciate what we have. We as American citizens can prevent this censorship in our own country.
but it's going to take work, we need to get off our lazy butts and do some parenting. Teach our kids to know the difference between right and wrong. Guide them in their decision making, and if the stoves hot, they'll get burned and learn for themselves.
Being a poor parent or lazy parent is no excuse not to raise children right, or have your government do it for you. If that's the case then you shouldn't be reproducing. The next generation is already being bred to think it's okay for the government to interfere or control us. they're okay with having cameras and monitors on the school laptops,
and video cameras on every street corner. If we wait any longer to do something about this no one else will, because the next generation isn't going to know any different.
I don't agree with porn, I think it is unhealthy for people to watch porn,it destroys the reality of what love really is. I also think it's degrading for both men and women, and racist. Porn isn't what it used to be, with 2 consensual adults having sex and being videotaped, porn today is violent and degrading, and I do believe people act out what they see on porn and think it's okay, or it's what women want. and That is NOT TRUE.
But i also believe in the right to view it, and think it's up to the individual to do something about it, not the government.
