Youth protection: Brussels tightens requirements for online sex platform

Sex films and porn reach a large number of users online. Now the EU Commission is demanding information from a porn site – primarily to protect minors.

The sex and porn platform Xnxx will have to comply with stricter rules against illegal content on the Internet in the future. The EU Commission classified it as a “very large online platform” under the new Digital Services Act (DSA), it announced. This obliges the platform, among other things, to prevent minors from accessing pornographic content, for example by verifying their age.

Xnxx now has until mid-November to fulfil its obligations under the DSA. This includes conducting its own risk assessments on how it deals with illegal content or the negative impact on the well-being of users. The report will then be examined by the EU Commission.

The platforms Pornhub, Stripchat and XVideos were already classified as “very large online platforms” last year. In mid-June, the Brussels authority asked them to provide more information on the protection of minors and the fight against illegal content.

The Digital Services Act (DSA) is intended, among other things, to ensure that platforms remove illegal content from their sites more quickly than before. In turn, it will make it easier for users to report such content. In principle, large services have to follow more rules than small ones.
