(London, UK) — Men’s adult lifestyle website HarrietSugarcookie.com examines the pros and cons of the UK’s controversial new Digital Economy Bill in a series of posts aimed at educating UK porn viewers about the government’s proposed age verification regulations.

The site – one of the UK’s largest, with monthly traffic of over 300,000 visitors each month – recently posted “Why the UK’s Age Verification Laws are Good for HarrietSugarcookie.com”, delving into the Bill’s benefits from a strictly business perspective.

“This regulation increases the cost and complexity of launching an independent adult site… shutting out potential new rivals,” the article states. “Age verification actually lowers our hosting costs… filtering our traffic that does not have the ability to pay, thus increasing our bottom line while someone else picks up the bill.”

While HarrietSugarcookie.com may benefit, the UK’s adult industry as a whole could suffer. A new article, “The UK Porn Ban, Goodbye Oral, Hello Orwell!”, further looks at how the Bill could affect security, privacy and the personal rights of the estimated 25 million Internet porn watchers across the country.

The Bill is vague, but the phrase ‘restricting access to online pornography’ allows the government to ban specific sex acts or performances, as well as look into viewers’ browsing history. HarrietSugarcookie.com is more succinct: “Now they’ve set up even more ways of censoring material they deem inappropriate. The new censorship is hidden within the new Age Verification law they will be implementing.

HarrietSugarcookie.com founder and performer Harriet Sugarcookie will post more in-depth articles in the coming weeks about the selected clauses in the Digital Economy Bill and its progress through Parliament.

In addition to Sugarcookie’s personal musings, HarrietSugarcookie.com blends advice columns, celebrity gossip, sci-fi/fantasy reviews, favorite recipes and amateur NSFW sex scenes together to create an adult lifestyle site like no other.
