Russia Has Just Blocked Access To PornHub And YouPorn

Russia just blocked access to Pornhub and YouPorn and told its citizens to go 'meet people in real life' instead.

The state watchdog, Roskomnadzor, announced the move. The watchdog is responsible for monitoring the internet and blocking sites that the government doesn't want to be used.

Pornhub itself responded to the news by tempting the agency with a premium account.

"If we gave you a guys Pornhub Premium account, will you un ban Pornhub in Russia?" the official account tweeted.


It's not the first time the authorities have attempted to stop people from bleeding the weasel. Back in 2015, the agency announced Pornhub had been blocked.

Somebody tweeted the agency and asked them to "suggest an alternative" to the popular site.

However, they replied: "Dear Lyolya, as an alternative, you can meet someone in real life."

Smh. That's not the point, really, is it? Sometimes you've just gotta wonker your cronker in peace, ain't you?
