A short thread on some #porn research (could be longer but I'm sick and trying to finish a PhD on porn also). We have seen a lot of media talk lately in #Ireland, for obvious reasons. I want to share some recent studies in an effort to add some research into the discussion
Im not defending porn (my personal opinion is the idea of porn is fine, however I recognise the industry has some issues- like any industry). But I am concerned with how we use porn as a lazy scapegoat, especially in the media.The last time we had a national conversation on porn,
it was a lot of fearmongering rather than science, and soundbites rather than funding for sex education. See my analysis of this here: dcu.ie/news/news/2018…

The @BBFC #AgeVerification "Certificate Standard" has been published.

This is the document which is being proffered to protect the facts & details of _YOUR_ online #Porn viewing. Let's read it together!

What could possibly go wrong?

@BBFC Well, that was fast:

"this is the foundation of the non-statutory, voluntary age-verification certification scheme (the Scheme)"

"Only age-verification providers that meet the requirements of the Standard…will receive certification"

What happens to the ones that don't?
@BBFC [ Incidentally, I am going through this in real time with a mug of coffee, so there may be some jumping back and forth. Don't expect perfection. ]
