I'm not going to summarize something for you because you yourself admitted to being too lazy to read.

So maintaining one's innocence,
one's virginity is now considered...
how did you say it "being too lazy".

But thank you for the summary.

Just like a firewall and anti-virus should be default on a computer,
so should safe browsing. Even in the first three pages it was
admitted that turning safe mode off is trivial. But for the
sake of the three remaining virgins in greater Britain

Tell the PM you want default safe mode on.

Um. Who actually pays for porn anymore? Anyone? *crickets chirping*

Ironically the only porn I've paid for is a British one.

Just the parodies....they are extremely funny.

Think porn Glee, complete with dirty songs....

If other blokes want to watch porn which is up to them, fine, no problem but I do have a problem if my grand daughter watches it, she is simply too young. When she is older she can make up her own mind. Too bad you can't handle that. You watch whatever floats your boat. This has nothing to do with good parenting its about what is easily obtainable on the net and kids curiosity. No one can 'parent' 24 hours a day and kids may not access the home computer but one outside parenting control.

So your Grand daughter is too young but she would out somewhere without your knowledge to access this else where and its not a case of good parenting if the parent has no clue where or what their child is doing and especially if they are too young to be doing it at home?

I too am sorry,
as forgetting what it was like
to be virgin, explains why the quote above
assumes that everyone already has an "offensive (to them)" threshold.

Default safe mode
does not
equal tyranny.

Really think something here is being preserved
when all that is happening is virginity is being thrown under the train.

I see you keep calling everyone who responds to you as "virgins" and "wankers" whilst avoiding any intelligible counter-arguments apart from "nuh-uh" coupled with poor sentance structure. We got ourselves a regular disco-stu here.

A new era of innocence comes upon us.

The age of innocence! Our confidence and security will be restored.

Meh, I think we'll always be trying to be perfect and always will fall short. 2000 years from now the government will be trying to bane some evilness and it'll seem like nothing has changed.

This one is a tough one for myself to decide if its good or not, porn isint the healthiest thing to watch out there but it is part of our society, but adults shouldent need there government tell them what they can watch online.

But as a parent i dont think its such a bad ideal.

Tell the PM that
you want all public WiFi
to be default safe search and
one has to choose to click it off.

I want this in the United States of America. That's about all I can really say. If you want it so bad, all you have to do is ask. At least if I were in the UK my boys would not accidently stumble upon hardcore porn it during an innocent google search with a single misspelled word or mislocated letters. Hell sometimes I accidently misspell a word and presto! Porn in my results. When the industry is actually going out of it way to make sure even people who do not want to see porn get exposed to it, something is wrong.

Most search engines, if not all, have an option you can turn on so explicit content is not shown. Google has a SafeSearch lock. I'm fairly sure youtube has this too.

It's logical for a parent to want to block this stuff. IF I had a kid, I'd probably install some software to watch the computer so I know what they're doing with it. However, most people probably aren't aware of how it works. I know that this is a legitimate concern.

BUT I don't fool myself into thinking I can stop a kid from finding porn. Honestly, if a kid wants porn, they'll find it. Ultimately, all I can do is limit what they do with my things. But once they're outside my radar, I really can't control them. Teenagers, especially, are very rebellious.

What I'm primarly against is blocking porn in anyway for adults. I don't care what kind of porn as long as it's not real or if it's real then nobody is below consenting age and nobody is forced. Obviously, if people are harmed too much, the government might have to intervene. For example, what if people derived sexual satisfaction from stabbing each other in a consensual fashion? I feel that the government have to step in and stop it, even if the participants were consenting to it. I feel that as long as something remains a fantasy or is not REAL then it's part of our inalienable freedom. To attempt to remove that kind of freedom is simply absurd and impossible. It's .... psychotic.

What about the privacy side of porn?

Many people may choose to watch porn due to the anonymous nature of the internet.

If they want to keep their internet porn they now have to ring up their ISP and basically declare them selves a pervert.

How nice for them.

Iv heard of young men and women being currupted and sexually twisted due to porn and its not really a need

And I heard Santa Clause was real and would be stopping by my home this December. Does that mean it will happen? No.

Fact is, just cause you "heard" that young men and women were being "corrupted and sexually twisted" does not mean it has actually happened. Do you have any studies or information of any kind to back up this claim? Probably not, because there are no shortage of studies that actually debunk your claim.

Want some real facts and not just opinion?

Over the years, many scientists have investigated the link between pornography (considered legal under the First Amendment in the United States unless judged “obscene”) and sex crimes and attitudes towards women. And in every region investigated, researchers have found that as pornography has increased in availability, sex crimes have either decreased or not increased.

So much for "corrupted and twisted" huh? How about this little gem?

Looking closer, Michael Goldstein and Harold Kant found that rapists were more likely than nonrapists in the prison population to have been punished for looking at pornography while a youngster, while other research has shown that incarcerated nonrapists had seen more pornography, and seen it at an earlier age, than rapists. What does correlate highly with sex offense is a strict, repressive religious upbringing. Richard Green too has reported that both rapists and child molesters use less pornography than a control group of “normal” males.


Maybe instead of banning porn, we should ban religion? Because the truth is, there is more evidence that religion has "corrupted" people than there is that porn has- and the data backs that up.

i hope someday the rest of the world does the same thing . its degrading to the actors and its not much better then prostiution

#1. I don't hope the world follows with this silly idea. What right do you or anyone have to force feed me your version of morality?

#2. Degrading to the actors? No it is not. They CHOOSE to be in these films. No one is holding a gun to their head and forcing them to do anything against their will. I am almost certain that many do not feel the least bit "degraded" when they are cashing their paychecks. How "degraded" do you think they feel when they are opening up their own production companies, adult toy companies, or product lines? If they are "degraded" they are degraded all the way to the bank and degraded by choice and it is their choice to make, not yours, not the governments, and certainly not mine.

#3 Actually, it is prostitution. They are being paid to have sex and have it filmed. Sex for money is prostitution and guess what? There is nothing wrong with it. What is the difference between a man who pays a women for sex outright- or a man who spends money to wine and dine a women that he only wants to have sex with and has no plans on starting a relationship with? Answer: NONE! Both of these guys have paid for sex. So why not just be honest about it and pay someone who wants to sell it?

And it would be about time.

And this kind of thinking from such spiritual person as yourself is in my personal beliefs what is demeaning to humans as a race, to humans as individuals and is a crime against humanity for wishing to destroy a free society or a least free thinking.

Are Hitler, Stalin and Mao your inspiration for such thoughts?

What about in physical form, should sex as an activity/pleasure be regulated and only sex for birth allowed?

[color=gold] It has nothing to do with parenting or some 15 year old male fapping it to a busty 27 year old in a porn video. We're all just frogs sitting in that pot of water and this is just one more thing to increase the temperature.

Well that's really the problem isn't it.

There aren't any busty 27 year olds doing straight porn any more.
In fact, it's just not very good.
The pr0n is all weaponized and super extreme now.
And there always seems to be one or more participants who look unhappy.


Look, without linking and posting examples...there is PLENTY of normal, straight porn with realistic looking people. There is a HUGE market for "amateur" pornography. People are tired of silicone and bad acting.

Hiding your head in the sand by blocking porn won't solve any problems. How about raise kids that don't want to watch, or care for porn in the first place?

Wow, what a concept.

Crazy news! But I'm a 28 year old male, I watch a lot of (non violent*) porn - I approve of this move. And speaking to my peers they do too. Kids need to be protected. And the rest of us can just get the filter turned off. Various ISP's have an auto set filter anyway, I had to get a "safe browsing" filter switched off for this dongle with t-mobile when I first got it. It didn't take much effort.

Still more annoyed that Google turned off live twitter update feed to be honest.

* I like passion and beauty and refuse to watch anything other than TBH. Too much info?

he decriminalized softcore pr0n
and wants "safe search" to be the default.

how dastardly
/end sarcasm

And as to the studies in the post above yours...
isn't it interesting how they never have anything
good to say about virginity, or even the existence of virginity.

This comparison is ridiculous. Everyone may not like olives, but it is undeniable that they are virtually harmless. Many feel that porn, on the other hand, is harmful in someway to those subjected to it, whether it be moral or psychological. So it comes down to differing opinions on the matter. Some feel porn is fine, while others don't. So it seems pretty logical to me to allow the household to choose freely whether or not they want to allow porn. And if you are truly that embarrassed to to tell the other adults in your household that you want to watch some adult movies every now and then, maybe you should reconsider your motives...

I could give a tinker's damn what oither people know or don't know about my viewing habits.

What I don't want to see is a government DICTATING/REGULATING what can be seen or not.

That's MY job!
