Internet & Networking "Every household in Britain connected to the internet will be obliged to declare whether they want to maintain access to online pornography, David Cameron will announce on Monday." And so, the UK nanny state turns to straight up censorship. Let's look at some of the authoritarian policies that David Cameron wishes to enact.

Its not like they're telling folks they can't have it, and I think its a good thing to have it blocked by default. I have several teenage sons, and porn has been a problem


How, exactly, is porn a problem for you, then? Sexuality is inherently natural and absolutely nothing to be ashamed of and definitely not something you can just lock in the closet and run away from; teenagers want to and will find ways of experimenting and learning about their own bodies and their sexual feelings and seeing as how few outlets they have for that, how our society seems to consider sexuality altogether something abhorring what other choices do they really have other than porn or actually going out and doing it with random people?

I kind of doubt porn is in any way a realistic representation of how real sex takes place.

Then where are the "real life" screening of sex ? Are parents so eager to "educate" their offspring about this "essential" part of adulthood ?

You'd be surprised how "vanilla sex" is not so "vanilla", And Sex 1 the City such a close depiction of reality.

That's not what I was even saying. I was saying that it fulfills a need, a need that the kids will then satisfy some other way if porn isn't available. And if that other way happens to be with real people it may end real bad.
