Britons Will Have to Decide: Porn or no Porn?

Internet Censorship as Social Experiment in the UK

How sadistic can a government be when it soon will ask its 19 million households that they explicitly tell their internet providers not to restrict their access to pornography? This is what David Cameron is aiming at in the UK. In the future, all grown-ups (yes, those without kids, as well) that make a new internet contract and those who already have internet, will have no access to pornographic content (that includes the legal ones, too). Only if they demand it, they can get it.

While it will surely be awkward for a large number of people to confess to their internet providers that they'd like to watch porn, it could also turn out as problematic for numerous relationships. Clearly, "don't ask, don't tell" is not gonna work when there's a letter in the mailbox one day, asking the question: "Porn: yes or no?" and the wrong partner gets his hands on it.

Other measures that Cameron's administration wants to set in motion are a stricter prohibition of porn featuring simulated rape, a general porn barrier for all public Wi-Fi services and a porn filter for new smartphones. "Soft" pornography, such as topless pictures in British boulevard newspapers are said to be not affected by that. Cameron confirmed that after many criticism stirred up. He himself expects that the censorship will yield a wave of future problems.

The law will be activated at the end of the year. Before then, every household should get mail from their internet provider.
