In landmark legislation the Department of Media, Culture and Sport will require pornographic websites to carry news, educational or community programmes, or face shut down.
“We’re not censors,” said Junior Culture Minister Nigel Cranley. “We recognise some people want this kind of material. At the same time, we are in favour of choice, and public service. These sites are very popular, and we feel they should be offering options and giving something back to society. So, this year we’ll be putting in place a scheme where pornographic sites have to balance their content with public service material - local news, history, or health-based content. We’ll be looking at how much public service and educational content a site will need, by law, to feature, probably on a per-vagina or per-penis basis. A certain amount of, say traffic news and weather for every nipple or bottom shown."
Perhaps surprisingly, not all industry insiders have been critical of the scheme. Gerald Farmer, owner of Hefty-Throbbers.com already has some ideas about how he will make the scheme work: “In my spare time I am an almost fanatical stamp collector, so I’m looking to make really interesting material about the history of the British postal system that will complement the unnaturally massive breasts we have on offer!”
“Adult” sites will be required to offer public service content.
