Men’s adult lifestyle site HarrietSugarcookie.com is offering UK fans essential tips to circumvent the country’s Digital Economy Act, a restrictive – and personally invasive – law set to go into effect this summer.
“In order to continue browsing porn, users could be asked to hand over their phone number, passport, driver’s license, allow a lookup on the electoral roll or even pay a visit to the post office,” writes site founder Harriet Sugarcookie in her new article How to Bypass UK’s Age Verification and Unblock Porn Sites.
“Do you want to hand that information over to a porn site? No. Neither do we,” adds Sugarcookie of the newly-passed law that will restrict online access to over four million adult entertainment sites worldwide, exposing the public to threats of hacking, blackmail and fraud.
Using a colorful infographic, Sugarcookie details six simple methods to get around the Digital Economy Act’s limitations on online porn viewing, from connecting to a VPN (“it’s an easy way of tricking websites into thinking you are browsing from another country… pick a VPN location that does not censor porn” to using a DNS server, Tor browser or a proxy site.
For all the hysteria, however, “it’s worth noting that there are lots of gaps in the Digital Economy Act 2017,” writes Sugarcookie. “Social media sites are not affected. You can access as much porn as you like on Reddit or Twitter, so it’s always worth following your favourite sites and companies on social sites. You will never be completely cut off.”
“Plus with 4 million porn sites and growing on the web. It won’t be possible to block everything. With a little luck, the UK government will just quietly forget about this law as time goes on. Hopefully before too much harm is done.” The British adult star’s award-winning online destination – currently the U.K’s most-visited adult site with over 300,000 monthly visitors – offers its audience advice columns, celebrity gossip, informative articles and favorite recipes to fully engage and entertain fans in an atmosphere created uniquely by Sugarcookie herself.
