I'm not completely convinced this is a good thing. Most young boys watch porn without their parents knowing, so if it's succesfully blocked, then where are they going to look for the same sort of satisfaction?

Besides, sex is something very natural, I don't see why it's so important to shield children from that opposed to say Horror Movies and Call Of Duty, to which they are very clearly not being protected by their "Caring" parents. I feel this has more to do with the parent to want the child to remain innocent forever, then that it relates to an actual problem.

I don't think this will go lightly with the porn industry. I know children are not supposed to be watching it to beginning with, but for a large part, its a learning experience. Plus, if the whole house is blocked then the parents can't access their content either. (imagine known your parents watch porn because your house wasn't blocked). People make it out to be some dishonest act, when in reality, its a everyday factor in todays digital life. Boo ISPS
