- Indonesia has banned popular social media site Tumblr, along with nearly 500 other websites, in a massive clampdown on the sharing of porn online.

- The UK government will make all porn sites introduce mandatory “robust” age checks, it has announced. A consultation from the Department for Culture Media and Sport said “commercial providers” of porn should have verification controls to stop under 18s viewing the content.

- Warning for survivors of sexual assault and trauma. This opens up an unexpected discussion about VR porn from a male perspective versus from a female one — and potential unintended effects of VR porn on survivors of sexual assault. “I find female perspective VR porn really unsettling to experience, and I think that’s largely down to the porn industry designing VR porn from a very male centric perspective. … Want the experience to speed up or slow down? Not a choice. Want the experience to spend longer warming up? Not an option? Starting to feel uncomfortable and want to stop? Not an option within the simulation.”

- “Another week, another example of how topsy-turvy our understanding of “sex trafficking” has become in America.
