About

The Republican governor of Utah has ed legislation requiring all cellphones and tablets sold in the conservative state to automatically block pornography. Critics are calling the divisive move a ificant intrusion on the First Amendment right to free speech. No immediate steps toward implementation will be made unless five other states enact similar laws — a provision introduced to address concerns that it would be difficult to implement. The American Civil Liberties Union of Utah said the constitutionality of the bill was not adequately considered and that it will likely be argued in court.

World population review

Pornography has been around since time immemorial. Now, with the pandemic-imposed lockdowns, social distancing and a collective despair about the future, many have been finding instant pleasure in adult content.

However, the increased traffic on pornographic websites is not the concern or what this article is about. The worrying trend is that a recent survey found a spike in the of children surfing adult and porn sites.

The reasons range from the schools and colleges being closed in the country, leaving many students with more free time on their hands, to the easy access they have to adult websites because many are online on their mobile and other hand-held devices for online classes. The development is naturally worrying the parents, for young children watching pornographic content could be a recipe for disaster especially couples with the conventional patriarchal ideas of Indian society.

Shravan Bharati, who is currently in his thirties, reasons that besides it being an outlet for instant gratification, porn is something kids would easily prefer to enjoy watching rather than discussing it with friends, teachers or their folks. The Indian administration has to-date banned over 3, porn websites in the country. Yet, India ranks third in the world, followed by America and Britain, in terms of consuming pornographic content.

Clearly, then, banning the above website has not had much impact, note experts in the field.

Demand for porn, however, seems strong. pornhub, an adult entertainment website included in the ban, last year said india ranked fifth for daily visitors.

Ritesh Bhatia, a cybercrime investigator and security consultant, for one, calls out the ban as useless while pointing to something more potentially dangerous. So what could a ban to pornography do?

Banning will certainly not make sense. Ritesh further points out another frightening trend with respect to kids and their exposure to adult content.

Apart from the conventional content, he says, children are now also exposed to child pornography. Saying it should ideally be referred to as child abuse material, Ritesh points out that these child pornography videos are in huge demand. You see something and want to see if you can do it as well or better, only in this case it is something as dangerous and child nudity and exposure on the net. Children are exposed to several things while growing up, and for better or worse, many of those things have a lasting impact on them.

Now, with an excessive exposure to technology, children are glued to video games and social media apps most of their free time. Experts point out that the excessive use of social media has also caused a rise in the of children accessing adult content especially as most of the content available on these forums is sexually arousing in some form or another.

While the uttarakhand high court has asked to block websites, the ministry of electronics and it (meity) found 30 portals without any pornographic content.

What they see in the environment is what they get attracted too. While the Internet could be a boon or a curse, depending on how it is utilised, parents also need to provide sustainable solutions to tackle the concern. Clinical psychiatrist Alpes Panchal points out that curbing cannot be a solution though talking about sex and everything related may be a better idea.
