Recently, the National Telecommunications Commission ordered for service providers to block access on some top adult sites so that Filipinos can’t get in.
According to CNN Philippines, the Philippines is one of the countries to spend the longest time in porn sites, as to why Pornhub and XVideos have been blocked. This is in accordance of the Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Law.
Some netizens raised arguments on why these adult sites need to stay inside the country.
“Baka lalo mahayok ang mga tao sa pinas pagna block yang mga yan.”
“Pag ginawa nila yan uusbong ulit ang industriya ng porn dvd sa Quiapo.”
“Walang masyadong gastos, iwas sakit ng ulo, wala pang kargo de pakainin”
“I think porn ang solusyon.”
And the best one yet,
“Ang reason kung bakit mataas statistics ng mga pinoy na mas matagal manood ng porn sites is because we have the slowest internet providers.”
