A Pommie Porn Ban Is About To Come Into Force

Age isn't just a number, it's also the key to unlock online porn in the UK.

From next month, Poms who watch porn online will be forced to prove their age before they can access adult websites.

Mindgeek -- the company that owns Pornhub, YouPorn and RedTube -- has designed an ID system which forces users to sign up with their names, email addresses and credit card, licence or passport before they can hit the play button.

Basically, it means Brits will have to hand over their personal details to get their fix.

But, it's a one-stop sex shop -- when they've signed up to one site, they've signed up to them all.

The new measures are designed to prevent children from seeing inappropriate content.

Naturally, privacy campaigners are worried about what could happen in the event of a security breach.

Mindgeek has shrugged off the concern, ensuring all details are "hashed", meaning they won't be compromised in the events of a hack.

But for those still concerned about handing over their email address to an X-rated website, as always, there's a way to get around it.

Users can simply buy a special ID card from selected stores for five pounds, which can be used together with an app on their phone to get them in.

Either way, if your travelling to the UK soon, watching porn is going to get more difficult.
