PornHub....what the f##k ?!

Go to CruxDreams.com
Hi.Has anybody been on PornHub lately ??
I went on there,hoping to perve over some nude women on Crosses...
And what do I find ?!
NOTHING !! :( :(
I thought,that was a bit strange,because there used to be about two pages,or more....usually stuff from the old Hufkens site,etc....
Have they pulled them all,due to a change of sex policy,or what ?? Is there a Legal precedent ??
Answers will be gratefully received and appreciated.

Probably grown too big and well-known. I heard some mention of it on BBC, they were talking about it as if everyone listening would be familiar with it!
Actually, the stories have been circulating for a while about both underage models and revenge porn on the site. Then the New York Times ran the story. Mastercard saw that and told PornHub to sort itself out. They took the nuclear option of deleting anything that wasn't certified as a consenting, legal-age model.

Yes, it was Nicholas Kristoff who wrote the article, and he has long been an advocate for exploited children all over the world. I'm no prude, or I wouldn't be here and certainly wouldn't post stories here, but we do have to recognize the problem. PornHub is huge with tens of millions of videos, thousands posted every day, so how would you moderate it. CF has about 20 mods (who do a fantastic job) for a tiny fraction of the posts and vids are much harder to control than stories or even pics. Many porn actresses who are over 18 deliberately try to look younger. And how would you tell revenge porn from consensual amateur stuff? So, I understand their dilemma. They have also disabled downloads, because once people download a video, deleting it is more or less beside the point. There are limits to every right and when you run a giant site, people are going to abuse it and post illegal and/or really awful stuff.

I remember the early days of the internet when it was said that if everyone is free to post whatever they wish, they will fill the net with wonderful, edifying stuff and the world will be a far better place. Yeah...

One correction-an article above said they were a British site. They are actually owned by a company called MindGeek, based in Montreal, Canada, which also owns a bunch of other sites. Their servers are in offshore places with loose regulation.

I saw it as less an attempt to stop the minuscule amount of revenge or underage porn, and more an attempt to cash in on the onlyfans style of making direct money of off selling. They took down over 10 million videos (about 2/3 of all content) and now it's only verified professionals, largely with paid content sections any only small advertisements that are free.

As far as downloading goes, didn't know you could do that, at least not without membership. I use the Ant Video Downloader plugin that rips any video content from any website.

In the end, while this is a major loss of content, xvideos and xhamster are still superior. With heavy-r and motherless there for the real spicy stuff.

I do think we have to recognize that.

If the approach is "we are going to assume all uploaded content is ethical and above-board and good to go unless the opposite is 'obvious from looking at it' or we literally get a court order against it" then there will be harmful things. And even if it is only a small percentage, the harm done to the victims is on a different level, than the discomfort of not being able to access free content.

Pornhub has the Problem it is amateur and professional content, differently to say newbienudes. If they would concentrate to commercial, but now free of charge stuff, such as old porn videos, for what I love them the problem does not happen. The other, such as newbienudes, truenudist and the like must take precautions.

the video downloadhelper add-on for Firefox still works with most porn tube sites, although it sometimes struggles with HLS Streaming videos. 9xbuddy.com and tubeoffline.com get recommended a lot but I've never had much success with that one but there are lots of video downloader options available as long as you're running a good browser (ie. Firefox) on a real computer and not a mobile toy.
