VPN with Porn

Let’s not lie to ourselves, we’ve all probably looked at porn sometime or another, and maybe more than we would like to admit! But many of us don’t even think of using a VPN when browsing the internet for some adult fun.
 
Aren’t using a VPN yet? Here is why you might want to reconsider when watching porn:

 

What is a VPN?

For those of you who don’t know, a VPN is a Virtual Private Network. Basically you’re hiding your computer or device from eyes on the internet. Once connected to a VPN, websites can’t track you nor know who you are. Aside from watching porn, there are endless benefits of using a VPN while connecting to the internet.

 

Browsing Porn Safely and Privately

Accessing a porn site on your computer with no security measures is a rookie move. Once you hit that site, they can see your IP address, location, and other information about you that you probably wouldn’t want them to have. If you are not using an “incognito” window, your browser will even store your history of going to these websites – you might see your browser suggesting some embarrassing sites in front of people you would rather not share that information with! However, if you use a VPN, your IP address is going to be masked, your traffic will be encrypted, and no one will know what site you have accessed while on the VPN. And if there’s no evidence, then it never happened, right?

Disclaimer: Whilst we do not condone breaking the law in any way, there are certain countries where it is perfectly legal to stream porn online but has been blocked by the government due to the sensitive nature of the site. More over, the laws surrounding ownership and consumption of pornographic materials are not perfectly clear in most countries, which also leads to further confusion when it comes to simply “watching/streaming” porn online from legal websites.

 

Legal to Watch Porn Online or not?

From our research, there are many countries where the ownership and consumption of porn is completely legal such as in the U.S, U.K, India, France, and many more. However, there are also equally as many countries where any obscene material owned, consumed, or even watched is against the law. Having said that, the issue with these laws is that most of the time, it’s never enforced. At the moment, it seems that nations around the world are more adamant on persecuting child pornography, which we’re glad to say that almost all countries have strict laws against and heavy punishment for those participating in these disgusting acts.
 
So what does that say about simply “watching or streaming” porn online? Well consider this insight below from PornHub itself. It shows the Top 20 countries by traffic that have visited PornHub in 2017. You’ll notice that many of the traffic sources are from countries where porn is generally legal in most sense. However, take a closer look at Philippines which is ranked 13th despite it’s illegal status according to the law there. More over, the biggest rank changes to the upside are from countries like Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan even though these countries have pretty much banned porn altogether.

So what does this all mean? The answer really does depend on your country’s law. However, here are some rules of thumb to guide you:
 
1) Never watch/stream porn in public areas.

In other words, get a room for maximum privacy.

2) Never share a link to the porn stream.

Yes, you found some good porn, but keep it to yourself. Sharing online porn links can lead you to be persecuted for distribution of pornographic material.

3) Never watch/stream porn without a VPN.

If you’re really not sure on your country’s pornographic laws, then it’s best to put on a VPN before streaming anything. Your ISP keeps tabs on you and reports them to the authorities if they deem any activity as illegal. It’s just like sex, you need a condom for accidental situations, still means you have to put it on every time right? In this case, your online condom is a VPN, and you might want to consider putting it on every time.

 

Unblocking Porn

You might find yourself in a place where the network has blocked “certain” sites from being accessed. This could be due to parental controls, network settings, or even government censorship. For example, Starbucks and McDonalds have blocked users from accessing porn sites from within their premises. But with a VPN, this is super easy to navigate around.
 
With a VPN, you have the option to connect to different servers from countries all around the world. Once you connect to a server located in a country other than yours, you will find that you can easily access that same site! Want to give it a try?
