Education, Not Censorship, Is The Key To Addressing Children’s Access To Porn

For the vast majority of MPs debating the Digital Economy Bill this week, porn was paid for when they were young.

With no need to register, or provide credit card details to access sites, age verification will be difficult. Problems with enforcing age verification on free to use sites can be seen with the likes of Facebook and Snapchat – both theoretically require users to be 13 or over, however this is easy to circumnavigate, and regularly is: more than 75% of children between 10 and 12 years old have social media accounts despite being underage.
