Sri Lanka government to show porno websites for money

Monday, 8 June 2009 - 11:45 AM SL Time

A blue business being planned

Sri Lanka Telecommunications Regulatory Commission has reportedly asked internet service providers in Sri Lanka to filter websites where obscene, pornographic and other sexually explicit material was available for viewing.

However, the sources say that the task has been identified as a complex and costly venture since the magnitude of the number of so-called `bad` websites.

However, the cash-strapped government and the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission have focussed attention to a profitable business of earning money from these pornographic websites, they have identified as popular among the country men. According to the plan, if an adult wishes to have unrestricted access to the internet, then a password has to be obtained from the service provider at a price. The money goes to the service provider and then to the government as tax.

The Sri Lankan girls are ahead of boys when it comes to the first sexual encounter with sex says a recent Health Ministry survey.

According to the survey Sri Lankan girls have their first sexual encounters at the age of 14 while boys lag a bit behind as they have their first encounter at the age of 15.

It seems that Sri Lankan teens are in no way shy as their even more advanced than the westerners. The French who are said to be passionate love birds have an average of 17 years for both boys and girls.

The study also reveled that about 40 percent of school children engaged in homosexual activity although the practice is banned by law and looked down by society.

Dr Kapila Ransinha of the health ministry told media that further studies are needed to come up with more definitive data and this study is more of an indicator.


Sri Lanka has always been treated as a country with an exceptionally low rate of HIV prevalence and strict cultural norms governing sexual behavior has often been sited as a cause but now things may be changing.

The Health ministry figures say that with the last quarter the number of HIV infected have risen.

The study also identifies that about 29 percent of students regularly access pornographic material.

The number of Sri lankan phonographic web sites has been on the increase and according to Alexa the web site that counts the number of user hits these websites with sexually explicit material from Sri Lanka are climbing up on rank.

Expert calls on the need of sex education have been ignored by educational authorities who prefer to listen to moralist.
