Matt Hancock, the Minister of State for Digital, has signed the commencement order for the Digital Economy Act, which received Royal Assent in April 2017, meaning the law should come into effect April 2018. The Digital Economy Act outlines new regulations regarding access by under 18s on a website or platform that provides pornography on a ‘commercial basis’.

The Paradox Suffocating Female Virginity

This article was inspired by a conversation I overheard on a bus a few months ago between a group of five guys all aged 16. The lot were trying to decide which girl their friend should choose to date. The first girl was identified just as “hoe” and they talked about how she had a few sexual partners in her life.
