Email address:. X-rated websites were set to be blocked on 15 July this year, but now the new laws have been delayed again. It is still unknown how far the porn block implementation will be pushed back, with an administrative error causing an indefinite wait.
Tumblr was never explicitly a space for porn, but, like most things on the internet, it is chock full of it anyway. Or at least it was. In the hours after the announcement, sex workers panicked, users threatened to leave, and—in classic Tumblr fashion—online petitions calling for change gained hundreds of thousands of signatures.

The South African Law Reform Commission SALRC has published a new discussion paper on sexual offences in the country, seeking to review the laws surrounding adult material and how children are exposed to it. The lengthy page document covers everything from how easy it is to access adult content in South Africa, to how children are affected by it, and how exposure may be reduced.

Our new research, published in the Journal of Adolescent Healthshows that one in five youth between the ages of nine and 17 will view unwanted sexual material online. Unwanted exposure includes seeing sexually explicit images or videos in pop-up windows or spam emails, as well as on websites — without intentionally seeking or expecting it. Unwanted online solicitations can include requests to engage in unwanted sexual talk or activity, or to provide personal sexual information or images to another individual online.
Generally, nudity and depictions of sexual activity in art are protected under the First Amendment. But some of the most extreme sexually-oriented speech is not protected, and sexual content more broadly is frequently the target of criticism, and sometimes the target of state and federal regulations. First Amendment case law has developed related to sexual content in almost every mainstream communications medium to emerge in the past century, including the Internet.
