Do you guys think the UK might ban porn to be accessed in the UK?

What would the fallout be? I can imagine crime drastically increasing, and even more massacres due to porn being banned. What are your thoughts? Will they ban porn, or is this a joke?

Do you want porn to be banned?
What are your thoughts on porn? For or against?



Not sure if a thread on this subject has been made like this yet, but hell I'm posting a thread anyways. I'm gonna go to work, I'll be back later to read.

i think it may go down like this
followed by massive riots and looting

But seriously even if they do ban porn people will still find ways to reach their favorite sites so nothing will really change, i mean VPNs exist for a reason am i right? :tomgirl:
What they might do is ban porn but don't actually enforce the law so people are free to fap whenever they want and the government gets to virtue signal how pure they are

First off hope you have a good day at work O.P.

No, I dont think U.K will ever ban porn out right because that would be political suicide by anyone who isnt a fundie or completely sex negative. Plus if they did they would fuck it up some how where it will be a waste of effort.

They will make it harder to access it like they are doing now with the porn I.D data base thing.

I'm pretty sure it isn't Puritans and asexuals with any real sway in anti-porn legislation. It's the woke mob.

I remember when people in full on BDSM gear were doing protests out against the time England tried to ban BDSM and other extreme porn under 'obscenity' laws. It got overturned, but we've always had a weird time with porn in the UK.

The ID thing as far as I know is actually involved with Mindgeek and Pornhub and Youporn - So whether or not it only affects those sites I have no idea. There's so much out there that they'd never be able to really hide everything.

I would sooner expect to see the UK nationalize porn than to ban it outright. That's how governments do everything these days...

Funny how people are more apt to get in a tizzy over losing their right to watch other people have sex than over losing the right to defend yourself from violent nonconsensual sex...but hey, that's human nature for you.

I'd say I'd be surprised, if not for the fact that the UK has a history of sexual repression and banning porn since.... forever.

For a little insight, the Victorian Era was practically marked culturally with such modest standards of concealing clothing and codes of mores so inherently strict, even showing your bare ankle was considered sexually titillating. I also remember reading up on how nude burlesques got around the anti nudity and porn laws by having actors stand absolutely still nude for a good few dozen minutes or so, as motion was considered the threshold for arrest.

I hope the streets go crazy in good ol London. The place needs a thrashing every now and then to kick the ass tight snots in the ass for a dose of reality.

I imagine it'll be like pirate sites, the government will block the popular sites and then they'll be in a constant and losing battle to shut down proxy sites.

But since you can upload porn on any site that allows image uploads I have no idea what the plan is, the UK government seems to expect every site to self regulate and then they go 'You need to try harder!' when for example sites like Facebook or Twitter inevitably aren't able to stop all harassment.

It'd be a return to normality really since before the internet the overwhelming majority of porn magazines and videos had to be approved by government censors anyway. Which meant really the most graphic thing you could publish were tits, bush and flacid dick.

hardcore pornography was only effectively legalized because juries never find them guilty.

I'm not in favor of banning porn altogether, but neither am I excited to be living in a culture so degenerate that there is room for furries, polyamory and pedophilia to be normalized by intellectuals and media.

Studying the link between masturbation and dopamine / prolactine has been pretty interesting, as is libido dominandi and how porn can be used for political purposes (much how sex was used in brave new world by Alduous Huxley).

Here's the cliff notes on libido dominandi:


As for the UK; a porn ban will only be a ban on legal porn production; I don't think most people will have much trouble circumventing it. There's still horrible shit even just on youtube. With the internet being the spirits let out of pandora's box and not being able to be back bottled up; at least not without crushing our economies, you can at best hope to throttle it with a ban.

And honestly a little throttling might not even be a bad thing, even though I oppose the UK ban on principle grounds that I don't believe the people support it. The aim should be to change the culture first, not the legislation first. The latter is just recipe for social unrest as much as the current culture (multiculturalism) is recipe for social unrest.

PS. As to the summary of study of masturbation & dopamine/prolactin, in short: masturbation causes prolactin which inhibits dopamine. Lack of dopamine is diagnosed as ADD. The same does not happen with sex, because the oxytocin from skin contact among other reasons. Dopamine is being motivated and feeling rewarded for doing things. TL;DR Masturbation causes ADD-like symptoms.

Most people currently watch porn. Most people in western countries haven't had their life threatened by another person before.

I'm talking about Western countries, such as the UK, in which rape is an ever-increasing danger for women and children (and, sadly, a reality for too many), and the governments and their useful idiots are intent on taking self-defense measures out of the hands of the potential victims. Nobody's rioting over that, but take away their fapfictions and, well, that's just a bridge too far!

What I'm saying is, as always: Nuke England today.

It's almost like if you don't like porn you don't have to watch it.

Sure pop ups hit "adult" websites etc and you may see it if you don't want to, but that's part of the net, those are ads.

Ever watch TV? I see ads about stuff to put in your vag, ED, what to wipe your butt with. I don't like that stuff, so I don't watch TV.

The gov in UK is a horrid shit show in so many factors and banning porn is just one of those little squeaky wheel deals that they can push for because, everyone even the law makers know it won't work. But they look like they do something ignoring the real problems.

Many healthy adults watch porn, are their people unhinged from it? Yes, but fucks sake people have shot each other over awful 80s musics (I don't like monday's killer) and no one stormed to ban the radio. Porn is one of those dirty things most people aren't ok talking about, and good I really don't want to know or care what or if you watch. So it's very hard to fight back socially because you come off as a creeper, even though you are right it's freedom of speech and expression to make a movie where a guy and 6 girls all shit on each other or there's midget fisting. Clearly I'm picking absurd fetishes for a reason.

Most people can't debate worth anything so people will just say "who cares freedom of speech you like watching chicks pee on cell phones you're just a creep" And people fold because of being shamed.

The gov doing it's opt in thing is bad enough but at the same time I really don't think they will bother to do more, but this is UK after all and having any right even asking if it's ok to watch porn soon will be taboo, or should I say Halal.

Oh and one further point to build on my previous one and to give an answer to OP:

Considering that porn causes masturbation and masturbation causes low dopamine (and thus lethargy and depression), yes it's likely to see more criminality if porn was effectively banned (they won't be able to). But you'd also see more work, more studying, more entrepeneurship, more political resistance etc.
