Is age-verification applied to other products?

Answer

Age-verification is currently used for alcohol and tobacco purchase online. Pornography is not suitable for children and young people and as such, the same legislation should be applied. This is a measure that respects adults right to choose and children’s rights to be kept safe form potentially harmful content. Age-verification places the responsibility on the pornography industry to comply with existing classification and protective measures already implemented across other sectors (i.e. Film and Media).
