When you search for adult content, your browser will be happily sending your requests to major porn websites around the world. However, this does not seem to be the case in Utah. All users searching for porn on xHamster.com, the famous adult entertainment website, are being redirected to a series of sex education videos website.

Earlier this week, the lawmakers in Utah had rejected a bill that would give parents the option to teach their children sex education. However, xHamster seems to take this rejection seriously and has decided to send all traffic from the country to PG-13 sex ed videos website, The Box.

Utah Porn

‘The Utah legislature voted against comprehensive sex ed in schools in favour of abstinence education. Ironically, over the past few years, politicians in the state have also waged a war on porn, worried that it provides inauthentic views of sexuality. We’ve come up with a solution that we will hopefully satisfy them on both fronts. Beginning immediately, we’re rerouting all xHamster traffic from Utah to our comprehensive sex ed series, The Box. We’ve been working on The Box since last year, producing videos based on questions submitted by porn viewers. While we love porn, we don’t think that it should be relied on for sex ed any more than Star Wars is a substitute for science class. Utahns consume the most porn per capita of any state in the nation. Let’s see if we can turn the thirstiest state in the nation into the most sexually aware,’ wrote xHamster on its blog post.
