This is the most ridiculous logic anyone could ever posit. Does the shutting down of an entire nation's auto plants dramatically reduce the demand for people needing cars? Did prohibition destroy the market for alcohol? Scarcity drives up demand, it does not deter it. Your journalists should be ashamed of themselves.

Yep, but the men in power in this country seem to be delusional about the way things like that actually work. There's a similar debate going on in Scotland right now about the government actually considering a ban on prostitution a la the USA. The advocates seem to genuinely believe that outlawing prostitution will somehow kill the entire industry and improve the lives of every vice girl in the country. It's a case of putting outdated personal morals above logic and pragmatism.

also I agree that parents should teach their children about sex. I have a friend who knew about sex since she was 3 and knew all about it. that being said, she was actually pretty mature when it came to sex and she never went through the "hurr hurr pen0rs" phase.

(also I read an isssue of cosmo at the doctor's office, and it was talking about MANipulation and had like, 20 pages about "What men actually think of you". oh, cosmo, you secretly misogynistic heap of scrap paper!)
That is pretty awesome, I can't imagine how that'd go over in schools here, I'm pretty sure that our laws on sex ed are really messed up dictate strictly what can be taught and not taught.

Cosmo is terrible lmao but it was around the house, I literally had no idea how to actually execute sex as it were, like for some reason I had no idea that a penis goes in a vagina or how. Hahahaha

which is funny considering I'd been sexual~ from an early age. (with myself anyway lmao)

My ex didn't know what penetration entailed until it actually happened to him at 17

like really

I can't even imagine what that would be like if it happened here, I'd either start reading literotica or banging fuckboys, but more than likely the literotica route, I'm not that desperate.

Let's forget the bigger picture of the government clamping down further on freedom of speech and expression, by eventually filtering and controlling the internet and take this on face value.

So, Cameron and company want to protect children by removing child porn and making those who want to obtain standard pornography opt in.
Let me paint the realness. There are people, many many people with a vested interest in child pornography. That can't be fixed. There's something in their psyche that intrigues or excites them about the prospect. Be shocked, be horrified, whatever, we live in a world where people will get their pleasure out of watching rape, out of watching child porn out of committing acts themselves.

Now, think of the percentage of people whose interest goes no further than viewing images and watching videos. The vast majority of those with an interest in such activity aren't actually committing the acts because their desire can be satisfied by obtaining it on the internet. It's a twisted curiosity. Actually scratch 'twisted'. Who's any one person to comment on what is and is not normal.
Most of us have watched things like A Serbian Film, Human Centipede, we've probably googled executions and death footage whether we admit it or not.
Does this make us all evil, twisted psychopaths? Or do we just live in a day and age where our deepest, darkest questions and curiosity can be answered by the internet.

Now if you are to take away the capacity to allow people to access child porn, what do you think will happen? When people can not play out their fantasies, their desires, urges and curiosity by watching videos and viewing images, their curiosity will not be quashed. They will look for other ways to satisfy their desires. Mark my words, total blocking of child porn will lead to an increase in rape and sexual abuse of children. There will be more and more people who cannot get the kick their looking for online, and will resort to actually carrying out the acts to get what they're looking for.

Look I'm not supporting that, nor am I condemning it. I know the reality of the world we live in. Allowing people to access things online at least keeps them in a manageable environment where they are less harm to others as they are allowed to explore their suppressed tendencies. You don't allow them to explore that and their sexual frustration will build. Just think about it. Remove the ability to get what your mind tells you you want, and the urge to get it will keep building and building until you snap. There are many sick people out there, and they'll only get psychologically worse if you take away what they crave from the internet.
You bring up a great point, but some people won't be able to watch it and will maybe think "I'm sick", and they finally realize it. It could be a benefit. Plus think of all the children this will potentially detract from watching porn. I mean, who knows what will happen.

yeah totally just like when Prohibition happened, all the alcoholics just checked themselves into asylums, they didn't start drinking shoe polish or something, that would just be ridiculous!

People have the option to put the block on, or keep it off. This is just a stricter law to potentially keep kids safe from all that adult shit online. And let's face it, if you're seriously in the mood for child rape and simulated rape, you have serious issues.
