Russia’s media watchdog has extended its crackdown on internet pornography, banning two of the biggest porn sites in the world.

As of Tuesday, Pornhub and YouPorn now redirect Russian visitors to a page that says they’ve been blocked ‘by decision of public authorities.’

In response to the outcry that has since ensued, the agency behind the move has reiterated advice issued on Twitter last year following the ban of 11 popular porn sites – telling disgruntled users to ‘meet someone in real life.’

According to the (Link): BBC, this decision stems from two separate court rulings which determined that the websites ‘spread pornography,’ acting against Russian laws against the ‘illegal production, dissemination, and advertisement of pornographic materials and objects.’

… The Russian media regulator also reminded the internet of a post that they now say is ‘still relevant,’ retweeting a 2015 response to a Twitter user in which it suggested they ‘meet someone in real life,’ as an alternative to browsing pornography websites.

Fans of the popular sites now banned by the government also took to social media, expressing their frustration at the decision.
