Xhamster Redirects its Utah Users To Sex Ed Videos After Utah Lawmakers Nix Comprehensive Sex Education Program
Adult entertainment websites always think of innovative things to protest. Earlier when South Carolina lawmakers proposed a new legislation to porn blockers on all new computers sold and $20 for unlocking it, Pornhub decided to release the sexual habits of South Carolinians in order to prove how wrong the lawmakers were. Now another adult entertainment website, xHamster is doing the same to Utah government.
It all started with the Utah Legislature recently rejecting the idea of adopting a comprehensive sexual education program — instead of the state’s existing abstinence-only curriculum. As soon as the lawmakers rejected the initiative, xHamster decided to take matters into its own hands.
Starting this week, the xHamster started redirecting web traffic originating from Utah to a non-explicit sub-site featuring sex-ed videos.
“Beginning immediately, we’re rerouting all xHamster traffic from Utah to our comprehensive sex ed series, The Box,” xHamster wrote in a blog post. “We’ve been working on The Box since last year, producing videos based on questions submitted by porn viewers.” “Utahns consume the most porn per capita of any state, but have some of the lowest levels of sexual education,” xHamster says in a pop-up to the site. “We’re here to change that.”
While the lawmakers aka members of Utah’s House Education Committee acknowledged on Monday that the abstinence-based approach currently used in schools is having little effect in lessening rates of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, they gave no reason to reject the all new comprehensive sex education program.
xHamster also said that it is responding both to the rejection of the bill (which would give parents options other than abstinence-only sex ed), as well as to Utah lawmakers’ attitudes towards porn. Readers should note that Utah had officially declared porn a “public health hazard last year.”
The Box, xHamster’s sex ed series, features answers to user-submitted questions, such as “What Is Queefing,” and a primer on the female orgasm. xHamster also emphasized, however, that it’s not meant to be the only form of sex ed a person receives.
xHamster isn’t the only porn site to have expanded into sex education. The leader of the adult entertainment pack, Pornhub had earlier started its own sex education website for its users. However, xHamster doesn’t have any such plans to launch a full-fledged sex-ed website and just wants to protest against the unjust laws being persisted by the American lawmakers.
