Since the following post was made in early March, it would seem that the UK authorities have seen a little sense, realising that the scheduled UK ban on pornography for April, is simply not practical to implement! Whether we will see a new date scheduled or whether they will come to their senses and abolish these ridiculous plans all together remains to be seen, but I'll update you here, as and when further information is available...
If you live in the United Kingdom, there are potentially some dramatic changes coming your way concerning your freedom of choice on the web. The UK is about to enter a draconian era of porn prohibition! Although of late, there has been very little official information concerning this proposed move, the UK authorities did decide last year, that as of April 2018, they intend to block "non-conventional pornography" for the UK consumer.
This may of course not even get off the ground and even if it does, it may take several months if not years to fully implement!
If and when this block does go ahead, quite scandalously, it means that potentially thousands of perfectly legal websites will be blocked from UK viewers screens. Paul Bernal, a lecturer at UEA Law School has said "This is legal content and creating barriers for adults to access that legal content is in itself damaging to freedom of speech and access to information". The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) will now decide what you should and shouldn't watch on the web, irrespective of the legality of such websites.
All adult websites will need to have an age verification process to comply with this new UK ruling. The Open Rights Group executive director Jim Killock has said "The BBFC will struggle to ensure that Age verification is safe, secure and anonymous".
Even if websites adopt the appropriate age verification software, the BBFC will still block websites for U.K. consumption if the content behind the age check does not conform to their strict conventional pornography format. From what is known and as far as the BBFC are concerned, "non-conventional pornography" includes almost all of the (perfectly legal) activities you will find on most FemDom websites. The BBFC doesn't think it's appropriate for you to watch a Dominatrix face sitting or humiliating a man in any way. A man sucking on a woman's strap-on cock is humiliatingly unnaceptable in the eyes of the BBFC, however they have no problem with a woman gagging on a man's cock or a man spunking in a woman's face!
Quite frankly, this move is idiotic beyond belief! All of the activities and productions portrayed on FemmeFataleFilms.com are legal to view and download and will continue to be so after these restrictions are introduced, yet the U.K. authorities intend to stop you having this freedom of viewing choice.
Those who want to bypass these restrictions will be able to do so very easily. It will only hurt those non-tech savvy web users i.e. those who have never heard of a VPN.
So there is light at the end of a VPN tunnel! I've always been a strong advocate for people using a VPN, to protect their identity online and of course for those who live outside of the UK and those who already use a VPN within the UK, these crazy restrictions will not affect you.
There are numerous free and subscription based VPN services available. Personally I've been using Express VPN as the most trusted and reliable VPN provider for many years now and I cannot recommend their services enough!
