What Porn is Forbidden by Law

It must be said in the first place that in many countries, shooting just any porn movies, even the one where all the parties are consent and are willing to perform, is forbidden by the law. These are not some third-world states, but rather well-developed and modern countries, which, at the same time, do not consider taxes taken from a legal porn industry appropriate for the well-being of the country. Other states, like the US or Netherlands, do not object from getting official taxes (and these are huge sums) from the legal industry to the benefits of their citizens.

In the vast majority of countries, watching porn online is legal. It means that there is no official law saying “dear citizens, you are totally allowed to watch it online, have a good time”. It is just that these states support the freedom of information and freedom of access to this information, which includes free Internet and therefore, access to sex videos. There are some states that may not allow official porn industry, but watching it is ok.

There are also some states (not many, but still) where even watching foreign porn is a forbidden activity. These include Muslim countries, North Korea, Cuba, Russia and other states that do not support freedom of information and free access to information. In these states, access to any porn sites is blocked and forbidden by the law.

In Muslim states, porn is forbidden because of religious concepts. However, it is not fully clear why other more or less modern and developed countries deprive their citizens of such a harmless entertainment. This especially makes no sense if one recalls how many loopholes there are in cyberspace, including different VPNs and so on.  

These are general facts about where porn is forbidden and why. At the same time, the states that actually allow the production also has a row of limitations about what kind of it is forbidden to shoot.

One of the most widespread and the most reasonable legal ban considering the porn shooting is the one with people who gave no consent to participate (including mentally challenged, sleeping, in the state of coma, unconscious, or dead). This is totally reasonable in order to avoid crimes connected to this type of demand, and also to avoid development of addiction of viewers to these highly disturbing types of preference in porn.

The next reasonable ban in terms of shooting porn is the one with individuals not reaching 18 years of age. Despite the fact that teenagers at the age of, say, 17 are totally aware of their ability to consent, and that many teenagers actually start sexual activity at the age of 14, this ban is reasonable and legal. At the age of 18, young adults are fully granted the rights of an adult citizen, and therefore the right to be employed as sex actors. However, before that age, participation in the sex industry is illegal, and the studio will face huge problems in this case.
