South Carolina seeks to ban porn, Pornhub releases sex habits of South Carolinians

South Carolina’s new legislation proposes porn blockers on all new computers sold; $20 for unlocking it, Pornhub says South Carolina’s citizens enjoy porn

It if thought that the United States of America was the epitome of free speech and liberty, wait a second, there is a state in the US that seek to block what you want to see on your PC/laptop. A state legislator in South Carolina is hoping a one-time tax on porn consumption will dissuade grown-up residents from watching people have sex on their computers.

According to the new legislation called Human Trafficking Prevention Act which was filed this month by Rep. Bill Chumley, the PC/laptops in South Carolina can be sold only after installing a  porn blocker. The only way to lift the block is to pay $20 to the state government.

Anyone in South Carolina who loves their adult stuff on their computer screens should now be worried. The state wants to censor NSFW content by forcing tech companies to install porn-blockers on all computers sold. According to Rep. Chumley, this is the only way to prevent children from accessing porn and to protect them from exploitation. Chumley told GoUpstate, “If we could have manufacturers install filters that would be shipped to South Carolina, then anything that children have access on for pornography would be blocked. We felt like that would be another way to fight human trafficking.”

The legislation provides a way out to vendors or customers over the age of 18. If they want to buy a new PC or Mac without the blocker, they can pay a one-time $20 fee per device to get the blockers lifted. So essentially, South Carolina’s citizens wishing to watch adult movies will end up paying the government for their NSFW stuff. While this looks hunky dory to the senator, Pornhub insights reveal a different story. Taking a contrarian view against the proposed legislation, PornHub says that the senator is going against the wishes of South Carolina citizens.

To protect its title of the most popular adult entertainment website in the world, Pornhub wants a censorship free world. So in response to South Carolina’s anti-porn bill, it decided to out the ways in which South Carolinians enjoy their adult stuff.

According to the to insights,  South Carolinians really do enjoy adult films. So much so, that they stay on the site longer than most other states. “Folks from South Carolina visit Pornhub for 29 seconds longer than the U.S. average,” writes Pornhub Insights. “That ranks them 7th for the longest lasting power, just behind Louisiana and Arkansas.

South Carolinians also seem to like spice in their adult films which can be seen from the insights. It remains to be seen whether Rep. Chumley’s proposed legislation can be forced down the throat of South Carolina citizens.

Either way, Rep. Chumley seems to have unheard the ineffectiveness of blocking anything.
