Pornhub open to working with PH gov’t to fight child pornography




A few days after the Philippine government started blocking adult sites in its effort crack down on child pornography, Pornhub has stated that it’s open to working with the government to meet their standards.

Pornhub vice president Corey Price said in an email as sent to GMA News Online that “non-consensual and child pornography is strictly prohibited on Pornhub.” The company also expressed disappointment about the block “as it will just drive people to use less vetted, riskier, smaller websites.”

“We’re open to working with government officials to meet their standards in the Philippines,” said Price.

The Philippines was ranked #14 in Pornhub’s Top 20 Traffic Countries in 2016.

Back in 2014, the NTC has sent out a memorandum circular requiring ISPs and telcos to block sites with child porn. On January 14, 2017, we reported that ISPs has started blocking popular porn including Pornhub and Xvideos. Interaksyon has also reported that the NTC “has ordered all internet service providers to block 21 websites for allegedly violating the country’s anti-child pornography laws.”

While everyone agreed that sites that contained child porn should be banned or blocked, many complained that the ones that were blocked just recently were all legit adult sites. We asked around and several inside sources explained the rationale behind the actions. You can read all about it here.
