Pornhub is requiring viewers in Louisiana to verify their age with a government ID as part of a new state law

  • Pornhub is making users in Louisiana verify their age with a form of government ID, Vice reported.
  • The move is part of the state's new law requiring porn sites to vet minors with age-verifying tech.
  • But some experts say the law can increase surveillance and potentially hurt certain communities.

 

Pornhub viewers in Louisiana must now verify their age using a government ID in order to access content, Vice reported.

Before users can browse through the porn site, they must now prove their age through the LA Wallet App, a digital version of their Louisiana drivers' license, Vice confirmed through a virtual private network.

Pornhub didn't respond to Insider's request for comment before publication. 

The move is part of a new law that went into effect in Louisiana at the start of 2023 which requires porn sites to use age-verification technology to crack down on "material harmful to minors on the internet." The law considers minors as anyone under the age of 18. 

 

The law also applies to digital publishers where 33.3% of their content is considered sexually explicit. Publishers who don't abide by the law can be hit with fines.

Similar bills that require age checks have also been enacted in Australia and the UK.

Louisiana's law was co-authored by Republican representative Laurie Schlegel, who has reportedly expressed support for a bill that bans transgender athletes from participating in women's sports and said that she is a certified sex addiction therapist.

"Online pornography is extreme and graphic and only one click away from our children," Schlegel tweeted in reference to the new law."And if pornography companies refuse to be responsible, then we must hold them accountable."

 

But some experts say that the age-verification requirement can cause data privacy concerns. Olivia Snow, a sex worker, academic, and research fellow at UCLA's Center for Critical Internet Inquiry, told TechCrunch that age verification is a surveillance tactic that stems from a "sex panic" which may hurt sex workers and LGBTQ folks. 

"As homophobia and transphobia — especially homophobia in the context of porn — is rising, I could totally see the state zeroing in on people consuming gay porn, or lesbian porn, and either surveilling them further or criminalizing that," Snow told TechCrunch.

So far, Louisiana users can reportedly still access porn sites XVideos and XHamster without age verification, according to Vice, though OnlyFans is stuck on a loading page. 

XVideos, XHamster, and OnlyFans did not respond to Insider's request for comment before publication.

1. I am okay with restricting prOn to adults, that normally means a credit card

2. Although they have worked on it and mostly gotten rid of them, there are reports that Pornhub used to have some very vile content (including revenge porn, violence against women [I don't mean kink, where an actress is well compensated for a BDSM scene and has all sorts of safewords to stop shit if it gets out of hand but where non consenting women were assaulted and raped], and child exploitation) on it and so I am not upset at efforts to make it more difficult to access them.

 

On the other hand

 

3. I am guessing the government of Louisiana has never heard of vpns. So what I guess I am getting at is how do they enforce this law?  I mean this isn't say Kansas Highway Patrol pulling someone over who bought weed in Colorado or Missouri and didn't get rid of it before coming back into Kansas, this is cyberspace where vpns are a thing

And it’s probably your days, porn hub was a place to find a lot of the hidden cameras taking up skirt, videos of women at shopping malls, etc. and a lot of the girlfriend, revenge videos or people would post sex tapes or hidden videos they had made of having sex with women.

Don’t ask me how I know…😁😁

Thread starter has an issue because it protects or prevents minors from viewing porn and it would lessen their chances of being F8eaks like he is. 

 

The "MuH rIgHts" crowd who couldn't wear a mask to protect others because of "state oppression" are now happy that they have to show ID to watch porn. 

You can't make this shit up.

Conservatives are beyond satire.

So instead of letting parents be personally responsible for monitoring their children's internet usage, you think that "big government" is the better option?

Fuckin' commie.

How is requiring someone to provide ID to watch porn going to stop a child from "being groomed"?

Can you explain that process for me?

So I guess it’s a bad thing that big government makes people show ID when they buy cigarettes or booze, right?

I guess we should mail in ordered guns just like our votes. Pretty safe. 

I was talking about showing ID and how stupid it is to make a big deal about ID on a porn site but not when it comes to showing ID to vote
