No fans of adult content...

OnlyFans is set to back away from adult content


Link Here21st June 2021
OnlyFans is attempting to attract new investors and brands by moving away from its reputation for adult content and material as it aims to reach a $1 billion valuation.

Bloomberg reports that the company is particularly focusing on getting more athletes and celebrities on the site, along with other backers who can help it become a more mainstream media platform and lessen its reputation for porn and NSFW content.

The London-based website has seen astronomical growth in the last year and a half, with the platform growing at a rate of 100% a year, with more than 100 million users.

 

 

Cease moralising...

A new anti porn campaigner proposes to take legal action against the ICO for failing to keep children's data safe from porn sites


Link Here18th June 2021
CEASE (Centre to End All Sexual Exploitation) is a new morality group campaigning against porn and sex work in the UK.

The group was founded in 2019 and describes itself on its website:

We shine a light on what sexual exploitation is, where it occurs and how it contravenes our human rights. We campaign for new and better laws, advocate for policy change and hold the global sex industry to account.

We're building a UK-wide movement of campaigners against sexual exploitation, and we're amplifying the voices of the very best advocates for change: survivors.

Its latest cunning plan is to hold the Information Commissioners Office (the UK data protection censor) as responsible for failing to prevent the world's porn sites from obtaining usage data from under 18s. The group writes on its website:

We are threatening to take legal action against the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for failing to protect children's data from misuse by porn sites.

The excuses the ICO has given for its failure to fulfil its regulatory duties are legally and factually flawed. What's more, it has left children exposed to a profit-hungry industry which is intent on drawing children back again and again to watch violent and abusive pornographic material for its own financial gain.

The group quotes long time porn campaigner John Carr:

I was shocked and dismayed by the Information Commissioner's reply to me in which they refused to act against porn sites which were collecting and processing children's data on a large scale. If the data protection laws weren't designed to protect children ... I am sure a lot of parents will wonder just what they were designed to do.

 

 

Updated: Popular porn...

Ofcom surveys the most popular porn sites


Link Here18th June 2021

Ofcom produces an annual report on internet usage in the UK. This year Ofcom has added a little about the popularity of porn websites. Ofcom writes:

One in three UK online adults visited adult content service Pornhub in 2020.

Adult sites are another genre of social video. 49% of the UK adult population visited an adult content site and/or app in September 2020, which equates to 26 million unique adult visitors.

The most popular site, Pornhub.com, was visited by a third of UK online adults (15 million) in September 2020, up by 1 million visitors since September 2019. According to Pornhub, the UK is the third highest source, by country, of traffic to the site. Pornhub's average visit duration in the UK is 10 minutes 20 seconds. The most popular way to access Pornhub is by mobile phone; mobile devices made up 77% of Pornhub traffic in the UK in 2020.

The owner of Pornhub, MindGeek, also owns several of the other top-reaching adult content sites in the UK. The Canadian company MindGeek, founded in 2004, owns three of the UK top ten sites: Pornhub, RedTube and YouPorn. MindGeek owns both adult content aggregator sites and production businesses. Its paid site, Pornhubpremium.com, had 3 million adult UK visitors in September 2020, 7% of the UK adult online population.

Looking at use of Pornhub by demographic, 55% of young adults aged 18-24 in the UK visited Pornhub.com in September 2020. Use differs by gender; half of all UK adult males visited Pornhub that month, compared to 16% of females. Female use is higher among younger adult age groups. 33% of 18-24 females and 75% of 18-24 males visited the site in September 2020.

Hungary's parliament passes law banning gay content that may be accessed by under 18s


Link Here15th June 2021
Hungary's parliament has just passed a law banning the promotion of homosexuality to minors. Of course the reality is that gay material will be widely banned for adults citing the possibility that children could be accessing any open media.

Critics claim the law -- which effectively bans educational programmes and publicity of LGBTQ groups -- would severely restrict freedom of expression and children's rights. More than 5,000 people rallied outside parliament on Monday against the legislation, which LGBTQ groups have compared to similar legislation in Russia.

The legal text reads:

In order to ensure... the protection of children's rights, pornography and content that depicts sexuality for its own purposes or that promotes deviation from gender identity, gender reassignment and homosexuality shall not be made available to persons under the age of 18.

It is not yet clear what scale of punishments will be available to enforce the law.

Local broadcaster RTL Klub Hungary commented:

The law could mean that movies that some see as promoting homosexuality, such as Bridget Jones's Diary, Harry Potter or Billy Elliot, can only be shown at night with an 18-plus classification,

 

 

Jailed without consent...

Porn producer jailed for failing to obtain proper consent from performers for the wide distribution of the videos


Link Here15th June 2021

An adult-film actor tied to the porn production company GirlsDoPorn.com has been sentenced in federal court to 20 years in prison.

As part of his plea, Ruben Garcia admitted to threatening and deceiving the women, and paying other women to lie to reluctant recruits, falsely asserting that the footage would not be seen in the U.S. but was intended for private DVD collections overseas.

Garcia pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking by force, coercion and fraud, and admitted his role as a recruiter and performer with GirlsDoPorn.com and GirlsDoToys.com from 2013 to 2017. Authorities said the company lured in young women who had never appeared in adult films.

Other people involved in the company will be tried at a later date or else have fled the US.

Apple bans sexy dating apps

Full story: Internet Censorship in USA...Domain name seizures and SOPA
Apple on Monday updated its App Store Review Guidelines to emphasise some existing policies and add new requirements for apps. One of those changes, guideline 1.1.4, bans 'hookup' apps that include pornography or are used to facilitate prostitution.

The revised guidelines, as Pink News noted, would ban overtly sexual or pornographic material, defined by Webster's Dictionary as explicit descriptions or displays of sexual organs or activities intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings.

Apple's new rules around dating apps won't affect non-sexy platforms like Grindr and Scruff.

 

 

Double standards...

Strippers comment on the sexist Bristol City Council which celebrates gay sexual entertainment whilst condemning straight sexual entertainment


Link Here11th June 2021
Strippers have accused Bristol City Council and feminist campaigners of sexist double standards for trying to ban women performing but allowing men to go ahead.

Dreamboys, an all-male collective that has spoken out in support of female strippers, is scheduled to appear at Pryzm nightclub in Bristol. The performance comes as local MPs seek to shut down all lap dancing clubs in Bristol by changing their licensing rules - with the council currently contemplating a ban on the venues.

Tuesday Laveau, who is based in Bristol and has been stripping for 16 years, told The Independent:

One of the fundamental arguments of anti-sex worker feminists is strippers and sex workers are tools of the patriarchy.

But they have no problem choosing what men do with their body. We are not mad at the Dream Boys. They are just working.

The point is the double standards of local MPs and Avon and Somerset's police commissioner. They have no issue with men behaving sexually provocatively for money.

Major US cable TV company axes porn channels owned by Mindgeek

Full story: Pornhub...An ongoing target of censors
 Comcast Cable (owners of the Xfinity brand)-- the largest cable television company in the United States with close to 20 million pay TVsubscribers is banning cable channels and streaming services owned by Mindgeek (owners of Pornhub).

A Comcast representative said that they were deeply concerned over the growing number of reports against MindGeek for unlawful business practices, including minors being exploited on their sites. As a result of this increasing evidence, Comcast decided to drop all MindGeek content from their cable systems. As of April 2021, all MindGeek material has been removed.

Furthermore, Comcast disabled new subscription video on demand (SVOD) signups and notified all their existing SVOD customers of their decision to remove content and cease distribution of MindGeek's SVOD services. Existing customers were informed of Comcast's decision through bill messages. Once the subscriber notification process was completed, the SVOD content became unavailable on their cable channels.

Pornhub announces project to restore, re-master and preserve vintage porn movies


Link Here1st June 2021

Remastured is an innovative project employing the latest technology to restore some of the oldest -- and steamiest -- erotic films ever produced. With the help of artificial intelligence, you can colorize even the most antique footage.

However, when it comes to the subtle shades of nipples, penises, and all the turn-of-the-century bush, the algorithms simply lack the experience. That's why we used machine learning and 100,000 adult videos and images from Pornhub to give our AI a sexual education and teaching it a new dirty trick: how to colorize vintage porn for a modern audience.

So, come take a trip down mammary lane to enjoy erotica from a bygone era. And who knows? Maybe you actually can learn something from your elders.
