PornHub blocked in Thailand, again


Thais will be out on the streets protesting again. This time over an apparent blocking by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society of the porn portal ‘PornHub’. The site was started in 2007 and has developed into one of the world’s most popular adult porn platforms and is the ‘go to’ favourite of Thais, well until yesterday anyway.

Logging on (people told us) resulted in either a blank screen or various messages relating to the Computer Crimes Act of 2007.

It isn’t the first time the website has been blocked in Thailand over alleged violations of the countries draconian computer crimes and obscenity laws. The Pattaya News reports that the problems are usually “quickly restored” and report as a “technical glitch” by the government although several internet providers admitted to being told to block the website.

Back in May, at the peak of Thailand’s lockdown, the porn site was also ‘locked down” drawing outcry on social media and a quick reversal of the situation.
