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.

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.

"Real" sex can be found too, just not on porn sites. Porn sites are more entertainment than realistic situations and actions.

I can imagine if you're a kid, don't know about sex and visit porn sites you may get ideas about sex, men and women that are far from the truth and could cause problems now or later in life.

I'm not saying I'm in favor of filters or blocks, but I don't find the argument valid that porn sites offer educational content with regards to sex.

Then a warning should be presented at the beginning of each porn, or at the bottom of the screen during the replay : "these sex stunts are performed by professionals, don't try them at home"
