Sri Lankan porn websites block

A Sri Lankan court has ordered a dozen websites to be blocked for allegedly containing pornographic material involving local women and children.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Nishantha Hapuarachchi said the censorship order was issued following a police complaint that some videos contained Sri Lankan women and children and that the free access to the sites corrupted society.

The websites' owners have 14 days to respond and if they do not, the TRC has been asked to continue blocking those sites, the magistrate was quoted as saying.

Porn is now banned,Already you can feel the tension in the country as boys (and some girls) keep hitting F5(Windows refresh key) in the hopes that it is a temporary error, but alas, it is not. These sites have been announced as being banned:

www.lankasexclips.com, www.ambalk.co.cc, http://lankasexlalk.com, www.sexylk.com, www.lankasexonline.com, www.redtube.com, www.tube8.com, www.adultfriendfinder.com, www.livejasmin.com, http://www.xnxx.com, and http://xhaster.com http://zvideos.com

Basically Internet providers like to prevent access to these websites. Education and corporate networks such as offices, college, school networks or public libraries and even Internet cafes - anywhere that might have filtered Internet connection. so you may wondering how to access these websites?

BUt some people say it is an 'The Undemocratic Ban on Porn'!

  2. But I think the change should come from peoples' mind, not by law.

  3. There is $3,075 spent every second on adult material, according to CNBC. Each second, 28,000 Internet users are viewing porn; and every 39 minutes, a new adult video is being produced. Not only is porn being made for DVDs and the Internet but also for your iPhone or Blackberry. You never have to leave home without it.
