RIP your porn habit.
Thursday’s FCC vote to end net neutrality will kill many of the things you enjoy most about the internet in its current form, but chief among them is your ability to access copious amounts of free adult entertainment.
At the moment, porn makes up a massive portion of our online consumption. Last year Pornhub viewers alone used 3,110 petabytes of bandwidth. And people are paying almost nothing for it.
But now that internet service providers will have the option to control what we can access, they’ll be able to stop the free flow of what we all want most. Platforms like Pornhub and YouPorn have been vocal in the fight against net neutrality, and the loss of it will likely reshape the entire industry.
Clearly this will affect anyone’s ability to freely and anonymously consume whatever it is they’re especially into. But it will also severely impact anyone’s ability to upload their own amateur videos — meaning the adult landscape could get considerably more boring.
Of course porn will never completely disappear — it’ll likely just cost you a lot more to get off. ISPs will now be able to make you pay through the nose for the content you crave, and they’ll also be able to track exactly what you’re watching. Ugh.
So you’d better go out and get your fill now, before watching “Sloppy Throat Games” or “Voyeur in My Closet” costs you more than you’d earn in a day.
