Iceland is currently debating banning internet porn (we foresee in increase in productivity). According to Halla Gunnarsdóttir, an adviser to the interior minister, it is not prudishness that fuels the idea.

“We are a progressive, liberally society when it comes to nudity, to sexual relations, so our approach is not anti-sex but anti-violent,” the adviser told The Guardian. According to Ögmundur Jónasson, the ban would aim to curb “violent” and “hateful” pornography. The idea was partly born from a recent survey finding, that on average, Icelanders see online porn from the age of 11.

Such a measure would not be completely out of the blue. It is already illegal to print and distribute porn within the country, and strip clubs have been outlawed since 2010.
