What do you think?

I think it would be good if there was a XXX domain and all porn sites were forced to move over to it that way parents, Libraries and schools would have an easy way to block all those sites and filter them out. And it avoids those time when you accidently stumble upon porn on the web.

    Couldn't care less on the xxx issue.

    It sounds like a good idea to me. Makes sure that no one is viewing stuff that they shouldn't. Sepends on whether the governments sort it out though.

    I think it's a great idea, both for how easy it is to block them and it is easier to identify! :lol:

    No, just kidding - it's a good idea.

    Yes in theroy it would be a great idea, as it would be easier for parents to block porn sites from there computer, so there children do not view them.

    The same method could be used in schools, workplaces, public access computers such as libraries.

    As DiamondGezzer said "it avoids those time when you accidently stumble upon porn on the web", its amazing what searches sometimes will include a porn site somewhere on the list. I hate that when it happens. Espeacially when from the title of the site and the brief discription you have no idea it is going to be porn before you click on it. (lucky most times its just really soft stuff, or pictures like you find on page 3 in the sun).

    But in practice will the government(s) be able to orgainise it and get the porn site to swicth to it.

    I think all child porn still should be removed and the people taking part in it arrested, but porn sites which purely contain consenting adults, which are avaible only for those over 18 to view is fine as everyone is entitled to enjoy different things.

    Yep.

    How would this make that happen? It's actually really hard to stumble upon proper child pornography websites unless you are deliberately looking for it.

    This is a bizarre thing.

    You can legally have sex at 16, but you have to wait until 18 to watch some porn. That makes no sense.

    As opposed to what?

    Isn't this what happens now?

    Didn't you know you could get videos of child sex abuse from Blockbusters?

    Of course there's no way of actually telling what age someone is when they're looking at it so it's pointless.

    Do you really expect the countless amounts of .com and .net porn sites out there to suddenly just switch to XXX. Not so sure myself.

    A lot would, I think. Most porn sites are legitimate, and just want custom.

    I doubt the established ones would shift though.

    Yeh, this always annoys me too. And that it extends beyond porn, mainstream films are given an 18 certificate for having a sex scene in it, preventing innocent, corruptable teenagers from seeing something they can legally do. Not exactly a well thought out policy.

    I think the idea behind the 16/18 thing is all about privacy.

    I.e. A two 16 year olds may be allowed to have sex in the privacy of their room but a 16 year old looking at three women and shemale in a S&M gangbang session may not be so suitable and tastful.

    But according to the law a 16 year old can actually have sex with 3 women and a shemale, all at the same time if he wants, but he couldn't watch something similar on the internet. Seems like a pretty fucked up sense of taste to me.

    And with privacy, if a 16 year old can have sex in his room, why can't he watch sex in his room?

    Why not, if that's their thing?
