Though if you're happy to subsidize my past-times (porn and travelling) then I'll happily contribute to the BBC license fee!

It may surprise you, but currently everyone who pays for a TV licence does sort of subsidize your pastimes! Without the licence fee, there would be no Freeview service and thus no free-to-air "Adult" and Travel channels...

Remember the TV licence fee is something the government charges people who want to receive TV, regardless of the channels watched. The government has in a separate decision decided to ring-fence the revenues generated from the licence fee and give them in their entirety to the BBC.
