“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.
