Paypal bans Pornhub from using its services to pay porn performers on grounds of morality


Link Here 15th November 2019
Pornhub has reported that PayPal would no longer support payments to Pornhub performers saying that it was devastated by the decision, which cuts off the primary way it pays over a hundred thousand performers.

PayPal told Gizmodo that its acceptable use policy forbids certain sexually oriented materials or services.

Pornhub tells The Verge that the decision affects performers who are part of Pornhub's Model Program, which lets individuals upload their own videos and earn advertising revenue from those videos. The company is pointing performers toward its other payment options including check, direct deposit, the Paxum e-wallet, and the Verge cryptocurrency

Saying that US banks also frequently refuse to allow sex related workers to open accounts, so some of the basic alternatives may in fact be problematic.

A year on from a Nepal government porn ban it has little effect beyond an increase in reported rapes

Full story: Internet Censorship in Nepal...Nepal gets wound up by porn
Last October, Nepal's government blocked 25,000 porn sites, but a new report shows that the effort was inevitably futile.

A year ago the government introduced stiff fines of approximately $4,200 on ISPs that failed to adequately block porn sites.

But now a new report by the Nepalese news site Annapurna Express shows that little has changed. Nepalese porn surfers have actually been watching even more porn than a year ago, Annapurna Express reported, based on data provided to it by xHamster. In fact, according to research by the Nepalese news site, internet users based in Nepal visit porn sites more often than they visit any of the country's news portals.

In another unsurprising finding, the site found that the porn ban has done nothing to curb rising levels of sexual violence in Nepal. In the year since the ban, reported rape cases in Kathmandu have climbed from 145 to 225.

Singapore increases penalties for sex work related crimes


Link Here 6th November 2019

Singapore's Parliament has voted to amend its Women's Charter, increasing penalties for sex work-related offences. The Women's Charter Amendment Bill, passed on 4th November, included provisions to strengthen the laws against online vice.

The Bill amended the Women's Charter to widen the definition of a brothel, to make it easier for prosecutors to prove a premises is being used for vice activities. The prosecution will now be able to use circumstantial evidence as proof that sex work activities are being offered, whereas before they would have had to prove sex work was being provided.

The Bill also increases punishments for people who facilitates sex workers entering Singapore, meaning those convicted face a prison sentence of up to 7 years, and a fine of up to $100,000 ($150,000 for repeat offenders). Penalties are also increased for living on the earnings of prostitution (from $10,000 to $100,000).

The Bill also increases enforcement powers for brothel-keeping offences; brothels were already criminalised in Singapore, but this Bill increases penalties from $3,000 to $100,000 and a 5 year prison sentence. Changes to the law mean anyone letting or sub-letting a property is expected to undertake reasonable diligence to ensure the premises will not be used for sex work, including identity checks and face-to-face interviews.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has focused specifically on those using remote communication services to facilitate the provision of sexual services in Singapore, even if the websites used to provide such services are hosted overseas.

The language of the Bill focuses on women and girls, and has not followed the trend to criminalise se workers' customers.

 

 

Less censorship, more regulation...

UK police body announces a change of direction in policing sex work websites


Link Here 5th November 2019
Moves to shut down websites used to sell sex have been abandoned by the National Crime Agency .

Under a new strategy, the agency will instead advise the adult services websites on how to improve their standards to stop the exploitation of slaves.

Those running the websites will be told how to verify the age of the women or men selling their bodies and to be alert for suspicious signs such as several people being advertised by one person.

Other warning indicators include bait-and-switch adverts, where a photograph of a woman is used to lure a customer who finds a different person when they arrive to have sex.

Law enforcers say this can indicate that one slavery victim has been swapped for another -- or that the woman selling sex is doing so because she is being controlled by organised criminals.

The NCA's aim is to persuade those who run the websites to stop them being used to promote unlawful activity.

I wonder if this is related to the recent government announcement putting an end to its porn censorship regime. Maybe the police would prefer these things to be open and monitorable rather than forcing large numbers of people to hide their internet browsing behind VPNs, Tor, encrypted messaging and encrypted DNS.

 

 

Proving how dangerous it is to hand over ID details to websites...

VTS Media camgirl websites accidentally reveal users' login details.


Link Here 4th November 2019

Several popular camgirl sites have exposed the email addresses and other sensitive information of millions of users and sex workers after a backend was left wide open.

VTS Media, a company based in Barcelona, runs the affected sites, out of which amateur.tv is one of the most popular cam sites in Spain, according to traffic-ranking service Alexa. Others include placercams.com and webcampornoxxx.net.

This data exposure does not come at the hands of any sort of hack or exploit, instead, just an oversight by the company, TechCrunch reported. The administrative backends were left open, without a password, for several weeks. This allowed anyone to access the network's database, which included usernames, email addresses, IP addresses, browser user-agents, private chat logs, login timestamps, and even failed login attempts, which stored attempted passwords in plaintext.

The backend also contained data related to the videos that registered users were watching and renting. Users who broadcasted sexual content to viewers on these sites also had some of their personal information revealed.

With millions of users affected, this is one of the largest data exposures for adult sites since Ashley Madison's massive breach in 2015, and rather highlights jsut how dangerous it is to hand over personal details to porn sites, and just image how much worse it would have been if UK age verification were in place, the date would include names and addresses, birthdates ad passport numbers.

 

 

Mustang Ranch lives to lay another day...

Morality campaigner fails to get Nevada's legal brothels banned


Link Here 1st November 2019
Earlier in the year, Rebekah Charleston, an ex-prostitute turned morality campaigner, filed a lawsuit against the State of Nevada, its Governor and Legislature, in which she attempted to have the laws which allow Nevada's legal brothels declared unconstitutional.

Thankfully the case has now been dismissed by the Nevada District's Chief Judge Miranda M. Du for lack of standing.

Because the plaintiffs failed to meet the standing requirement, the legal issues involved in the case were not discussed in Judge Du's decision, but the judge did make clear why the plaintiffs, aside from their being residents of Texas, wouldn't have met the standing requirements even if they had lived in Nevada. The concept of standing is something along the lines that one has to be an injured party to complain about an injury.

The owner of the Mustang Ranch brothel near Reno had a few choice words to say about the lawsuit's dismissal:

We are extremely pleased that the United States District Court deemed this lawsuit baseless and without merit and, as such, dismissed it, said Mustang Ranch owner Lance Gilman. However, we are equally frustrated at the persistent and reckless attempts by Mr. Guinasso [the plaintiff's lawyer] to ban Nevada's historic brothel industry through incendiary allegations that are steeped in moral judgment rather than facts and education. This was a complete waste and misuse of taxpayer dollars and, from the very get-go, appears to have been done for political gain rather than the establishment of sound policy.

Facebook has updated its censorship rules about sexual solicitation


Link Here 24th October 2019
Full story: Facebook Censorship...Facebook quick to censor
This past summer, without much fanfare, Facebook updated their censorship rules concerning sexual expression on the company's platforms, including Instagram.

The new language, under the guise of preventing sexual solicitation, restricts even further the posts that sex workers are allowed to share, making them even more exposed to targeted harassment campaigns by anti-sex crusaders.

Among the new things that could get someone Instagram's account flagged and/or removed for Sexual Solicitation: the eggplant or peach emoji in conjunction with any statement referring to being horny; nude pictures with digital alterations or emojis covering female nipples and buttocks.

The new rules include:

Do not post:

Attempted coordination of or recruitment for adult sexual activities, including but not limited to:

    Filmed sexual activities Pornographic activities, strip club shows, live sex performances, erotic dances Sexual, erotic, or tantric massages

Explicit sexual solicitation by, including but not limited to the following, offering or asking for:

    Sex or sexual partners Sex chat or conversations Nude photos/videos/imagery

Content that meets both of the following criteria:

    Criteria 1: Offer or Ask

      Content implicitly or indirectly offers or asks for:

        Nude imagery, or Sex or sexual partners, or Sex chat conversations

    Criteria 2: Suggestive Elements

      Content makes the aforementioned offer or ask using one of the following sexually suggestive elements:

        Contextually specific and commonly sexual emojis or emoji strings, or Regional sexualized slang, or Mentions or depictions of sexual activity (including hand drawn, digital, or real world art) such as: sexual roles, sex positions, fetish scenarios, state of arousal, act of sexual intercourse or activity (sexual penetration or self-pleasuring), or Imagery of real individuals with nudity covered by human parts, objects, or digital obstruction, including long shots of fully nude butts

Australian lads' mags close after convenience stores ban them

Full story: Magazine Censorship in Australia...Barely Legal winds up Australia'n nutters
Australian men's magazine the Picture and the 69-year-old People magazine will close at the end of the year, ending decades of printed weeklies featuring topless models and readers' sex stories.

Their publisher, Bauer Media, was forced to axe the magazines after retailers lined up to ban them from sale at service stations; and readership fell to 0.02% of the population over 14 for People magazine and 0.01% for the Picture. They are already banned from sale in supermarkets.

Discussions to close the Picture and People magazines have been taking place, as the magazines have lost ranging [visibility], which has affected their commercial viability, a spokeswoman for Bauer Media told Guardian Australia.

The magazines will be closing at the end of the year and we're working closely with staff to find suitable redeployment.

The latest retailer to ban the publication is BP who own 350 stores at petrol stations. BP's statement followed a decision by the 7-Eleven chief executive, Angus McKay, last month to order all 700 franchisees and store managers to urgently pull the magazines from sale.

 

 

Designing virtuous sex robots...

Ludicrous academics call for sex robots to be designed with a 'consent module' [and no doubt programmed with robot headaches too]

Designing Virtuous Sex Robots

By Anco Peeters and Pim Haselager

Abstract

We propose that virtue ethics can be used to address ethical issues central to discussions about sex robots. In particular, we argue virtue ethics is well equipped to focus on the implications of sex robots for human moral character.

Our evaluation develops in four steps.

  • First, we present virtue ethics as a suitable framework for the evaluation of human - robot relationships.
     

  • Second, we show the advantages of our virtue ethical account of sex robots by comparing it to current instrumentalist approaches, showing how the former better captures the reciprocal interaction between robots and their users.
     

  • Third, we examine how a virtue ethical analysis of intimate human - robot relationships could inspire the design of robots that support the cultivation of virtues. We suggest that a sex robot which is equipped with a consent-module could support the cultivation of compassion when used in supervised, therapeutic scenarios.
     

  • Fourth, we discuss the ethical implications of our analysis for user autonomy and responsibility.
