Porn Sites In Hong Kong Temporarily Shut Down To Encourage People To Protest

Porn sites in Hong Kong are even encouraging protesters to take to the streets.

The past two weeks in Hong Kong have been far from ordinary. As things get hot and heavy in the city’s political climate, with millions of protestors taking to the streets to reject the extradition bill, businesses and civilians are finding cheeky ways to project their opposition.

Local stores shut up shop in commemoration of the march, obvs with hopes to get everyone out on the streets. During the protests people were even handing out free face masks to boost attendance (very necessary). However, one of the more interesting forms of protest in Hong Kong this week came from two porno sites.

Two adult video streaming services, AV01 and ThisAV, shut down temporarily to encourage those sitting at home to take to the street. Quite literally their goal was to turn frisky users on to opposing the extradition bill. Talk about sexy.

ThisAV sent a message to users to get out in “the life or death protests” instead of “jerking off a home.” And I’m just baffled. But considering the mass amount of turn out, you have to think that every bit of encouragement helped.

AV01 said, “There will be no more safe place or security. The government has failed you, the system has failed you, the society has failed you, do you want to fail yourself?”  I mean, when pornography sites shut down and even offer bits of wisdom, something’s definitely fucked up.

Civilians in Hong Kong fear the extradition bill will tank absolutely their judicial system. Yet the termination of the bill isn’t the only thing protestors are fighting for. They’re also hoping to push Chief Executive Carrie Lam out of office.

The extradition bill would extradite criminals out of Hong Kong, which civilians seriously fear doesn’t encompass Hong Kong’s values. So, while it’s crazy that porn sites are getting political, every bit of protest is adding up to be one of Hong Kong’s biggest demonstrations in history.
