IF everything goes according to plan, Mzansi people will no longer be able to access porn sites.

The South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) has published a discussion paper on sexual offences in South African, in the hunt to evaluate the laws surrounding access to porn and how exposure to children affects them.

The SALRC wants all devices in the country to have a default setting that will block pornographic material, unless the user provides proof of age.

“The discussion paper has six chapters. Chapter one provides an overview of the investigation and includes reference to the legislative developments in a number of government departments in South Africa.

“Chapter two focuses on the access to or exposure of a child to pornography (legal adult sexual material).

Chapter three looks at the phenomenon of children creating and distributing self-generated sexual material (commonly),” the SALRC said.

The commission also wants a clause forcing communication service providers and financial institutions to report such offences.

 “The Commission provisionally recommends the inclusion of an obligation to report the commission of offences pertaining to child sexual abuse material or exposure of children to pornography,” the commission said.
