It turns out that folks over at the House of Parliament might not be so anti-porn after all - at least, that's what recent data might suggest. Obtained thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, said data reveals 24,473 attempted to access a porn site from parliament's network.
For context, that once about every 90 minutes.
Granted, it's unlikely that every porn visit was intentional - I myself have been subjected to surprise porn pop-ups when visiting otherwise pretty PG sites. A parliamentary spokesman had this to say to Press Association:
"All pornographic websites are blocked by parliament's computer network. The vast majority of attempts to access them are not deliberate. The data shows requests to access websites, not visits to them."
Tons of these requests probably were intentional, though. Damian Green was fired for storing "extreme" porn on his work computer, which is something I also do, except with permission. It's a rough life over at Parliament!
All this, of course, comes after the House of Parliament banned many a *legal* sex act from porn for no other reason than be prude squares. (Spanking, female ejaculation, and face sitting are on the list. Sigh.) The only pro of such a tragedy was the Great London Sex Protest of 2014.
