This Wont End Well

I think this is going to get clobbered by the law of unintended consequences.

1: Teens are going to look for porn.

2: Find out that all of the legitimate sites wont let them in without a credit card.

3: Go and find stuff that comes from providers that don't give a toss what the BBFC says.

4: End up seeing all of the really nasty / illegal stuff that lurks in the Internets gutters.

Net effect is a massive upswing in viewing / prosecutions for extreme porn!

Trebles all round in the house.
