Govt looking at tighter regulations for online porn

Drive 11/08/2018

Children's Minister Tracey Martin and Chief Censor David Shanks are teaming up to have a look at what can be done about the amount of online porn being accessed by under 18s.

It it against the law for anyone under 18 to view pornography but that does no stop the ease at which those under age can access it online.

The UK is looking at compulsory age verification checks on pornography later this year in an attempt to make it harder for under-18s to be exposed to explicit material.

Would something similar work here?

Joining RadioLIVE Drive to discuss this is Children's Minister Tracey Martin and Mary Hodson, sex therapist and regional director of Sex Therapy New Zealand.

Listen to both interviews in full above.
