Pryor Supports Special XXX Domain for Internet Porn

JANUARY 25, 2006 - Posted at 4:25 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Senator Mark Pryor said today that he supports creating a special Internet domain that would include all pornographic material available on-line.

Instead of Web sites ending with dot.com, dot.org or dot.edu, Pryor said all adult-themed and pornographic Web site addresses should end with dot.xxx.

Pryor said he's not saying there should be no adult content on the Internet, just that it should be limited to that xxx domain.

Pryor also said he supports legislation introduced in July by Senator Blanche Lincoln that would require age-verification filters and would impose a 25 percent excise tax on transactions over adult sites.
