Pornhub just deleted millions of videos – Love

Millions of videos are disappearing from the largest porn site in the world. Why this is an important step.

Pornhub is shrinking right now. The world’s largest porn operator removed all anonymously uploaded videos. That affects three quarters of all films. Of 13.5 million videos, only 2.9 million are displayed. Including the most watched amateur video with 29 million views. In doing so, the company wants to radically turn away from a previous approach.

“As part of our policy to block unverified uploaders, we have now blocked all previously uploaded content that was not uploaded by our content partners or members of the model program,” says the announcementfrom Pornhub. “This means that all content on Pornhub comes from verified uploaders – a condition that platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Snapchat and Twitter have yet to introduce.”

All videos that are currently pending verification should also disappear until this is caught up in the course of the year. The announcement has a serious background that has rocked the adult industry over the past few weeks. In one itemsThe New York Times was informed that videos had landed on the platform showing the rape of adults and minors. Deep fake videos with numerous stars were also illegal.

As a result, Mastercard and Visa began checking Pornhub for illegal content. As a result, Pornhub changed its Terms of Useso that unverified users can no longer upload or download any content. On Thursday, Visa and Mastercard announced that they would no longer support the Mindgeek network, which includes Pornhub, Redtube, Youporn, XTube and Brazzers, with payment processing.

Stronger moderation announced

The fact that unverified users can no longer upload or download anything from Pornhub is a development that the porn industry has been demanding for years. This prevents misuse and content piracy. Unfortunately, this is not just a problem specific to the porn industry. Other platforms are also used for this. The announcement by Pornhub cites a report by the Internet Watch Foundation: In the past three years, Pornhub 118 contents found showing sexual abuse of children, while in the same period of time, 84 million pieces of content of this type were discovered on Facebook.
