New Law Spells Death For Social Porn?
Social networking didn’t just revolutionize the way we interact online (and caused a lot of very, very ugly profiles to appear); it has also revolutionized porn. Believe it or not, YouPorn, a site that lets its users post erotic/pornographic images and videos of themselves is currently the most visited adult site out there. It’s bigger than CNN, and that’s a lot of traffic. But, the proposed changes to a US law 18 U.S.C. 2257 might be the end of sites like YouPorn, because they would require every performer (this would include social networks like YouPorn) to disclose about his/her age and identity. Want to post that raunchy picture of you and your girlfriend in the bathroom? Your ID, please.
