Porn Laws Around the Globe – It’s infographic!

Funniest thing. Over the past few weeks, we’ve had an unusually large number of visitors from the Middle East
(mostly Tunisia) looking for porn, as in Pornography, eg. sexually explicit material, and landed inadvertently at Worcester Wonderland. Imagine that?

So dem Tunisians got themselves a quasi-democratic government and the first thing they do is scour the Internet for porn. Must be some serious pent-up demand. The same thing happened when East Germany crashed and burned a couple decades ago, they cleaned out the West Berlin pornshops in a matter of days. Democracy, ain’t it sumptin!

The last porn I saw was the PETA billboard on Pleasant St. – the nurse with the prominent boobs. That’s porn right? At least that’s what Councilor Kate implied – she was pretty peeved about it… sumptin about the kids  seeing it.


Anyway, over the past several months we’ve used the word porn in several posts to describe content as chart porn i.e., visually arousing infographics! Hey, maybe dem Tunisians were really interested in the graphs?

From dailyinfographic.com: Porn Laws Around the Globe: … we see a world map showing the legal, illegal, where there is no data, and where there are some restrictions. As could be assumed, states in which there are more democratic governments are the states in which there are the least amount of restrictions in regards to porn.

One of the odder laws I discovered on this infographic was a law Australia has. In Australia women with A-cups or smaller are banned from acting in porn, because the government fears it will encourage pedophilia. One of the more moral laws I saw comes from Brazil, where they require that all their actors wear condoms to endorse safe sex.

Um, wait a sec, gives me an idea about boosting Wonderland’s pageviews.
