Russian Porn Ban: “Meet Someone in Real Life”

The Russian media regulator ‘Roskomnadzor’ banned two of the world’s biggest porn sites ‘YouPorn’ and ‘PornHub’ in a move designed to motivate porn addicts to “try and meet someone in real life”.

Russia Bans Porn Sites

The Russian media regulator ‘Roskomnadzor’ banned two of the world’s biggest porn sites, ‘YouPorn’ and ‘PornHub’, in a move designed to motivate porn addicts to “try and meet someone in real life”.

The Russian porn ban comes as scandals involving sex-trafficking have rocked the industry, which is already suffering due to declining traffic from ‘No Nut November’.

The move follows the abolition of abortion in an attempt to
reverse falling
birthrates
among Russians.

It’s not the first time the Russian state has moved to crack down on the porn industry. In 2015, the department banned 11 major porn websites, claiming they had failed to protect children from “information harmful to their health”.

In one exchange from 2015, Roskomnadzor tweeted at one angry citizen, “Dear Lyolya, as an alternative you could try and meet someone in real life.” This week they reiterated their point: “Dear lovers of the Internet, this piece of advice still stands.”

Pornhub PR tried to shrug it off with humour, while Pussy
Riot lead singer Nadya Tolokonnikova described the ban as a “blow below
the belt”.

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh has been crusading against pornography for some time, now the movement is gathering momentum.

To many, the harms propagated by the porn industry are no joke.

Despite protestations from pornographers, many young men are
throwing off the shackles of porn addiction, which has come full circle to be a
sign of counter-culture.

‘GirlsDoPorn’ Federal Lawsuit

‘GirlsDoPorn’ owners and employees have been pursued in federal court by the DOJ over charges related to “sex-trafficking crimes in connection with a scheme to deceive and coerce young women to appear in sex videos.”

In just one heartrending case, a young woman from a small country town, eager to begin her modelling career, was lured to California with flights paid for, only to be told upon arrival that if she didn’t want to do porn, she would have to pay for the flights and hotel.

When she made it to the front page of a major porn website, she began to notice people looking at her differently, the shame drove her to lose her employment and withdraw from public life.

The next time you log on to sate your base desires, think about the lives ruined by the industry.

The Russian porn ban shows no sign of lifting under Putin’s rule, the impact it will have upon the birth rate remains to be seen.
