[photopress:China_pornography_crackdown.jpg,full,alignright]There is no doubt that some of the stuff on the internet would make a pornographer blush. Now Chinese authorities have vowed to purge the Internet in China of pornography.
Xinhua quoted the public security ministry’s vice minister, Zhang Xinfeng, as saying, ‘The boom in pornographic content on the Internet has contaminated cyberspace and perverted China’s young minds. The inflow of pornographic materials from abroad and lax domestic controls are to blame for the existing problems in China’s cyberspace.’
Online pornography is already illegal and China takes great efforts to ban offending sites, but cyber-sex remains widely available to anyone who wants to search hard enough.
Xinhua cited a report from a Beijing rehabilitation centre for juvenile delinquents as saying that 33.5% of its detainees had been influenced by violent online games or erotic websites when they committed their crimes.
