This morning I declined an invitation from the BBC to talk on air about underage access to internet pornography. (I wasn't even dressed!) I did however, offer to send them an email and was told they'd be very grateful if I did. What I was very grateful for was that the email was read in its entirety
Here is the email I sent:
"I work as a webcam model and while I believe a lot of inappropriate viewing is down to lazy parenting (which seems to be the cause of many ills) I also feel many websites do not adhere to the regulations.
It's too easy for minors to click "I am over eighteen" and view the sites. If all sites had to be paid for then only those with a credit card could access them.
Personally, if I get even the slightest hint that a viewer is underage then I ban them from my live broadcast.
The initial responsibility lies with parents, then websites, then individuals like myself. We don't try to restrict access to books if they fall into the wrong hands so let's not restrict the internet, which if used wisely can be a marvellous thing"
I thank you
