Getting Free Porn On The Internet Could Be A Thing Of The Past

Oh yeah. Nobody was worried about net neutrality last week but the minute that the killing of free porn on the internet is mentioned, everyone's interested. 

On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided that it would kill net neutrality rules that provide for equal access online to all types of content.

The decision is likely to reshape the whole porn industry for years to come. 

When the Irish public were stuck inside for the whole day during Storm Ophelia, they turned to porn in a big way to help pass the time but accessing sites such as Pornhub with such ease could be coming to an end. 

The internet service providers will now be able to control what users can access and charge a range of prices based on the type of content.

“Without [net neutrality], the cable and wireless companies that control internet access will have unfair power to pick winners and losers in the market,” Corey Price, vice president of Pornhub, told Motherboard.

It will change the public's ability to watch porn and to upload their own pornographic content. 

The likelihood of porn disappearing entirely is very unlikely but sadly, it's going to start costing more.

Merry. Fecking. Christmas.
