Stupid Porn Law.

The UK courts have decided that porn videos can now only be sold over the counter in specialist stores. While I can see the logic in this, it's pretty ineffectual - not to mention ignorant of the overwhelming fact that kids rarely try to buy porn in the first place. With the internet, p2p and their parent's stashes freely available, it's a waste of time and stress and pocket money to actually try and legally possess any.

Another thing I've never understood is this: why, when our legal age of consent is 16 years old (for all sexualities), and kids are blatently having sex much younger, is it still illegal to watch people having sex on a TV screen? You can do it, you just can't watch it? I wonder (*turn on your sarcasm detectors now!*) if this could have something to do with this country having the highest rates of teenage pregnancy in Europe?
