Watching a good ol’ porno in the 21st century is genuinely easier than making a piece of toast. I don’t have to explain the ins and outs of it all, but you merely have to search one filthy word into Google and boom – a gargantuan catalogue of smut.

But the innocent simplicity in watching porn from your laptop, phone, or tablet, may all be about to change after government plans to reinforce the over-18 law have gotten a tad bit more serious.

According to The Independent, the government will soon force adult film viewers to prove that they are over 18 by using I.D when they try to access a raunchy site.

The new rules are being implemented as part of a new Digital Economy Bill and were announced during today’s Queen Speech.

Under the scheme, X-rated websites would force visitors a choice of identity providers to register, such as their mobile phone operator, the Department for Work and Pensions, or even their credit cards (which is what gambling sites use to verify customer ages)– all in order to confirm they are adults.

There has also been promises from the government that any adult film website who fail to adapt to the change will be either banned or even shut down – causing many to argue that the laws are just too much.
