Government Should NOT Block Porn in The Internet

I was queuing at the bank when I saw 2 children playing some faking style to each other while their mum was being assisted. I was a bit shock. They were only like 8 and 6 years old. How come they know this such of things? is it their fault? is it their parents'? or is it the government's?

Our government started to block porn sites about 1 or 2 months ago. Now they've been pushing others such as blackberry (bb) services to block as well so bb users cant access the site from their handheld. Currently only some operators block the site. Mine using AXIS is not being blocked.

What sites are actually blocked by the government? It's a bit funny really. I'm not a porn maniac, but I know some well-known porn websites. And only 1 of them is blocked: playboy. Try hustler, redtube, puretna. These three are a lot more hard core than playboy, are not being blocked. FYI: I'm using telkom speedy. I don't consider playboy as a porn website. It only shows boobs and to get more you have to pay and it's expensive. Redtube, on the other hand, you see everything in one single click. And it's not being block. So what are they really blocking? bull shit? it's only a way to get more rating for the next election?

It's either our government don't know those websites, or they don't want to block them. I believe they just don't know these websites. They might be very religious people who put these porn as a taboo. They're not allowed to see porn. How can they know if the website consists of porn? Wrong people for the job, they should employ me lol. Since they don't know hustler which is the second top porn mags in the world, how will they know others? They just won't know.

With the rapid of information exchange over internet and development porn website which is one of the biggest businesses in the world right now, it's almost impossible to block all of them without scarifying other excellent sites. For example, just recently top indonesian artist were being charged because of their xxx video. This video was uploaded to youtube and stayed there for some days. I got the information over twitter and blackberry massager. Then more and more people started uploading the same thing. So is it right to block youtube in this case? Of course NOT! Youtube has been helping all of us for some interesting things such as tutorials, news, etc.

SO what I'm saying, blocking is just not the right solution for everybody. So it shouldn't be done at government level which will affect all of us in the country. It should be done in smaller area such as school, home, etc. There are a lot of tools to do this. By default windows 7 has the facilities for doing this. It's easy. The government can make regulations so that the head of the area responsible for this matter.

Internet is built on a platform of freedom of information. Everyone is free to get and give information. Without this platform, internet is nothing and won't change our life as it is now. This information includes porn. Who needs porn? I do! And I believe lots of people do. For me, porn is entertainment and helpful in my sex life.

I don't think porn is harm in any ways for people who understand it. Those who don't might cause some harm to them and others. Another key is the knowledge. However, here in Indonesia, talking sex is considered taboo. We have to change that thought. Sex is one need of life. It's like eating, drinking and place to stay. Everybody needs it, so why taboo talking about that? I remember when I took my first English lesson in Australia. One subject being thought is sex. Nothing seems wrong with that. It helped us to know about sex culture in Australia so we wouldn’t get kill haha. Yes we have to talk about sex more and more. I mean the government have to talk about sex more lol.
