The Government Has Started Blocking Porn Sites

If you were trying to check out throwback videos of celebrity Maria Ozawa recently on your favorite porn site in the previous hours, you’ve probably seen the message above displayed instead of their home page. Yep, it looks like the government has started blocking porn sites in the Philippines, joining other countries in the region like Indonesia and Malaysia in restricting access to adult content.

Interestingly the National Telecommunications Commission has not issued a notice on it, and the blocked sites in question state that the move is in accordance with Republic Act No. 9775, or the anti-child pornography law.

The block hasn’t been applied equally though across all ISPs – some members of our team can still access these, uh, “art films” on home broadband, while the author can no longer access them via Smart LTE.

    1. that will follow. imagine the bandwidth saved from viewing these websites instead of surfing on meaningful or purposeful contents that take less bandwidth.

  1. You know if pornhub catered to child pornography they would have been shut down by the American Govt. a long time ago. Just saying.

  2. Funny how the government is blocking porn sites for the sake of “morality” when their own president is a proud adulterer…

    1. Well, maybe this is a push from others in the government. One must always make trades in politics.
      I also wonder, if porn is illegal, why is it that porn is not blocked in so many countries?
      Any kid can find it!!

  3. LOL LOL LOL

    let’s all go to davao!!!

    Prostitution in davao is very ripe!! why settle jerking off while watching porn? when we can have a threesome with our president?
    hahahaha

  4. Lahat nlng mai konekta lang ke Duterte. Sige tayo din. This must be Pnoy’s doing since he’s probably still a virgin and could not maintain a proper relationship due to his mental problems. guess this is his payback. XD

  5. DAMN these people who blame people who only voice out their own opinion in a supposed to be free and democratic country, and brand them right away as “addicts” if the context of their comments is against the president or his administration. Be very careful of this dangerous accusation because in this present time, a life can be easily extinguished in a huff by just being tagged as one even without an investigation. Who knows, it could work the other way around and backfire on you and you will end up just a part of the EJK statistics.

    1. Unfortunately I can not look at much of EJK statistics but I do see that they are uni-directional and don’t see to consult the thousands of mothers having lost children to the drugs so massively available in the Philippines.

      It is good to use statistics but the stats must not be one sided and judging by the bit I’ve read EJK seems to pretty much ignore the crises of the drugs and the drug gangs.

      The drug gangs are si infecting of the Philippines that there are daily many drug deaths never counted nor people from the media looking at the mothers suffering from their children dead and dying from the drugs.

      Many of the mothers that have been interviewed refuse to see that their children were even involved in drugs and call upon the media saying that their kids were the best. Of course, this is the common reaction but exploited in the media because these stories sell.

      I don’t see much of anything about mothers admitting that their children were on drugs or dealing because to admit that is very difficult and puts a scar upon the family.

      This, of course, is normal as is the abuse by the media.
