U.K. Blames Porn For Causing Teenage Anal Sex

Why we’re covering this: “Protecting children” is popular cause among those who wish to police other people’s sexuality and gender expression. Those who utter it deserve scrutiny (and often mockery).

“There is also a question about the effect of pornography on ‘unwanted sex’ – for instance more young people are engaging in anal intercourse than ever before despite research which suggests that it is often not seen as a pleasurable activity for young women.

“While the increase in anal sex cannot be attributed directly to pornography consumption, it does feature in a large percentage of mainstream pornography (for example, one content analysis found it featured in 56% of sex scenes).”

A consultation document from the co-chairs of the U.K. Council for Child Internet Safety to the U.K. Department for Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) to help DCMS decide whether to require age verification for online porn sites throughout the U.K.. You may recall that India also tried censoring porn throughout their country last year — it didn’t go so well

Pink News notes that the U.K.’s fear of teenage anal sex seems especially weird when you consider that they decriminalized sodomy nearly half a century ago. Pink News goes on to quote Jerry Barnett from the group Sex & Censorship as saying, “The government has given up even trying to make a credible argument for censorship… the suggestion that it is somehow government’s role to prevent anal sex happening is surreal in the extreme.”

Of course, if the U.K. is really worried about it, they can try providing childhood sex education like they do in the Netherlands (y’know, basically the opposite of what the US does).
