I see a stormy passage ahead for this legislation from the porn viewing public  :lol:

A nine-month countdown to the introduction of compulsory age checks on online pornography seen from the UK has begun.
The age-check requirement applies to any website or other online platform that provides pornography "on a commercial basis" to people in the UK.

The watchdog will be able to force internet providers to block access to non-compliant services.

The act also sets out other new laws including punishing the use of bots to snatch up scores of concert tickets, and mandating the provision of subtitles on catch-up TV.

I wonder if the legislators have missed out on a trick here, surely deaf porn viewers would also enjoy mandated subtitles and it would only require a few added sentences to the bill,

Whats the world coming too eh folks. :gum:

"It may make it harder for children to stumble across pornography, especially in the younger age range, but it will do nothing to stop determined teenagers," Dr Nash concluded.

'determined teenagers' ... yep ... well at least someone knows what they are talking about in this article ...

make it harder for children to stumble across pornography? And what about those minors uploading pornographic selfies...
Parents should get more aware of the doings and where a bouts of their offspring.

parents today are little more than children themselves that have no business raising a child... and i dont say this as 'grumpy old fart', i say this as someone who has observed many 'parents' not paying attention and letting their children do whatever they want at the local supermarket (among other observations)... a child needs structure, instruction, and occasionally a little discipline (and no, spanking isnt needed at all; there are other ways)....

The society of today is something thats in constant flux, with rapid changes going on at a faster pace than has been the case in times of old the moral compass of many gets somewhat "bent" towards a certain kind of short term outlook, the common sense of yesteryear is attacked and old ways of doing things discarded simply because they are so historical.

In times past  access to pornography was limited to a select strata of society based on having enough revenue to afford a glossy magazine and being of a certain age where the prerequisists to ownership of such mataerial, today no money is required to view such images online and further to this theres no "gatekeeper" to control  access, the game has changed and we as a society need to work harder on moral and social rules to police ourselves if traditional roadblocks are no longer relevant, thats my view on this matter.

the idea of young folks seeing images is not my key fear as they will in time reach maturity and maybe be thankful for some basic knowledge on the subject but what does concern me is the loss of childish innocence, during puberty a ton of hormones will make the youths of any generation want to go and pro-create, why cant we ask everyone at all levels of society to make it a bad thing in folks mind to discuss sex and such related matters in front of the children, lifes a mean hard road to travel surely a few years of ignorance and a helpful parental focus on something worthwhile in life prior to those hormones arriving is a good thing ?
