What’s a porn passport?

Last week, we learned the federal government will trial age verification measures aimed at blocking children from watching explicit adult content online, as part of a range of measures designed to lower the rate of gender-based violence in Australia.

‘Porn passports’ aren’t a new idea, either here in Australia or around the world, but we’re yet to see any sort of programs introduced domestically. Today on the podcast, we break down whether this trial could be the first step on the road to age verifications on porn sites, and how would these verification processes would even work.
