Proxies and time to fill my hd with enough porn to last a century

****ing ******s the whole reason why porn is so widespread is that sex is still viewed as something taboo at the back of peoples minds because of the last 2000 years and not something thats just normal. If people viewed it as the latter they wouldn't need to be titillated so much and be forced to w***ing off at a computer, they might actually go out and just get their socks off with someone and be done with it.

Humanities ****ed.

...asking the nation's Internet service providers to block porn from going to home Internet users.

Yes, all the access from home is inundating the servers and interfering with access from work. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Internet porn block 'not possible' say ISPs (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12041063)

It sounds to me like something the government has come up with just to sound good to their supporters, even while they know it can't be done. So nothing new there...

How ****ing dare they anyway. If this has something to do with the wrong age group viewing it then maybe their damn parents should put filtering software on their computers.

Are little Chinese people running around Whitehall? I'm starting suspect it after the previous Labour government and now this.

When I was young we stole dad's porn magazines from under the bed to read them. A decade later teenagers were sneaking a peak at the parents VHS Swedish porn tapes. These days they just get it off the net.

Nothing really changes.

In my case, upbringing. Prudish is definitely the word for my upbringing. It was (and is) BAD. Don't want to be, but there's always that voice "What would Mother think?" Oh, what I'd love to do to that damned voice. Sometimes I wonder when it'll allow me to live my life instead of the one my parents want me to live.

Then, of course, there's VD. None of the real persuasion, but there are plenty of the electronic type on the web. Still, I can fix my computer a whole lot easier than I can fix me.

That is an immensely stupid law, by the way. How much more can Big Brother be watching? Sheesh.

They say that "you are your language." English speaking states tend to be rather prudish. Be it this case in Britain, the insanity of the religious right in the US, the tight controls of the internet in Australia (where, by the way, any porn involving women with small breasts is now considered pedophilia http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif ,) and so on. There's also the consideration of the effect that the American occupation of Japan: MacArthur imposed censorship laws that stand to this day.

The puritanical nature of English-speaking societies is pretty much ubiquitous. It's an interesting anomaly in the 21st century (western) world.

In terms of Australia its more a case of the puritanical minority are fanatical and control freaks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Roughly 80% of Australian's are easy going and are relatively fine with abortion, gay marriage, voluntary euthanasia and liberal sexuality. They also understand the need for environmental awareness and are compassionate about refugees and understand the great hardship people fleeing oppression are going through.

However they are not politically very active. The racist/puritanical 20% on the other hand are obsessive, loud and obnoxious about pushing their views and they regularly shout down the more sane majority.

btw ... in my personal experience "moral" Christians tend to be far worse at relationships and staying married then their so called immoral counterparts. Many of the christian girls I know married young and divorced young. Also while very prim and proper about sex BEFORE marriage, apparently once your married and divorced all bets are off and its open season.

This won't happen, it's impossible. It's also a breach of "human rights", something they're so keen on, just this week they allowed a child murdering immigrant to stay in the country.

I've been wucking it to net porn since I was 13/14, and i'm just fine. Sex is part of life, and if teenagers have access to it on the internet, so what? Nobody is forcing them to watch it.

If it weren't for Pornography:

1. We'd have no streaming video.
2. We'd have hokey pokey bandwidth
3. We'd all still be on dial up.
4. Zip and all other forms of portable media would be in their infancy.
5. The internet revolution would barely have happened.

Porn in the U.S. alone is a 13 to 14 BILLION dollar industry. There's is no way Britain or any other Govt can stop it. They can curtail, they can make it difficult to get, but stop it NEVAH!!!!

Just a fact man.

The Sunday Times said that Britain's largest ISPs will be asked to a meeting in January to talk about the proposal, which is "being presented as a way of stopping children from accessing porn," according to TheNextWeb.

"We are not coming at this from an anti-porn perspective. We just want to make sure our children arenít stumbling across things we donít want them to see," Conservative MP Claire Perry says in the Sunday Times piece.

Maybe a compromise to the perceived problem would be to keep the restriction limited to folks who have underage children in the house?

Though the downside to this would be that there would be a worldwide internet crash because of the amount of UK computer activity the night before the restriction went into effect. It would be like shopping on Christmas Eve.

Yep http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Having had teenage stepdaughters, I can tell you now they rarely needed to go surfing the web for porn, the really hard core stuff they saw was sent to them through IM and social networking sites by all sorts of random people. Interestingly their response was more one of amusement then anything else.

Blocking porn websites is going to have a minimal effect on exposure of young people to porn.
