How do we avoid children or young teenagers from watching adult content ??Possible solutions?
Coming from a country like India, it is almost a sin to watch an adult movie even if you are above 18 .. Unfortunately Teenagers below the age of 18 end up watching pornography without their parents being aware..
Then some of them will be so extremely frustrated to fulfill their sexual need end up commiting crimes like rape and murder of rape victim just to hide their sin.Even rapists end up admitting that they watch too much of adult content and many of them are not even educated .
Even adult website in general does not ask for any validation to confirm if you are above or equal to 18 . All you need to do is click a button and say Yes ,I am above 18 years of age . Is there any work around for this ??
Solution: I feel SSN (Social Security Number in US) can be used as a validation technique to avoid teenagers from watching any adult content for that matter like asking them to enter their SSN if they wish to watch adult content).
This is a global issue which might seem like a tiny speck among all social problems but if this speck of dirt can be removed we are very close to solving all global issues
