Porn better with VPN?

 

Why you should watch porn only with VPN

There are many good reasons to use a VPN. One of them is watching porn. Not only because a VPN allows you to access porn sites in different countries but more importantly to protect your privacy.

Internet statistics show that porn sites like Pornhub and Youporn get more visits per month than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined. Almost everyone who surfs the internet will at least occasionally visit porn sites. It is recommended to always anonymize such activities. This means to hide your IP address by using a VPN service and also using anonymous email adresses when registrating for porn websites and services.

Risk factor: Data records on porn sites

Porn websites are commercial services which users entrust with their data. This is a risk factor for several reasons: Some services abuse your data by using them for marketing and advertising purposes and others might just outright sell your data to dubious third party companies. Especially platforms that offer free pornographic streaming content should better not be trusted.

But even when such a service is not abusing or selling your data, there is the latent risk of a data getting out because of a security breach. This is exactly what happened to the dating/adultery site Ashley Madison in fall 2015 when hackers broke into their servers and downloaded the entire database. Not only that, but for the users the worst case scenario happened: The data was put publically on the internet so that anyone interested was able to look up the extramarital activities of the users.

In this case not only were the e-mail-adresses of the customer leaked but also their private conversations on the site. This was quite awkward for the persons concerned and in some cases had serious consequences like the loss of the workplace.

Such consequences can be prevented if you make sure that your dataset on the website cannot identify you. This can be achieved by using an anonymous handle, IP address and email address.

Data should always be protected

Of course one could take the stance that people who involve in adultery don’t deserve any better. But how would the reaction look like if the datasets came from a hardcore porn or fetish site? Every person has his own sexual preferences or maybe just very bizarre hobbies that he rather keeps to himself. In all such cases one should take care that a compromise of a porn site will not have negative personal consequences.

This also applies to various sincere activities: For instance, communication about medical conditions within the family or a circle of friends. Or maybe you are a researcher or journalist who needs to be sure that his research remains discreet.

And lastly you should not forget that in other countries, different social (and sometimes legal) rules apply, which you don’t think about at home. For example, in many arab countries it is forbidden to access pronographic content.

For all those reasons it is advisable to anonymize such activites and always encrypt all your internet traffic. When using services where you do not want to be identified, use one or more dedicated, anonymous email addresses for this purpose. Additionally you should protect your data, anonymize your IP address and encrypt all your traffic.
