In response to a proposal for pornographic film production to be legalized, 77.04% said they strongly opposed it because children and youth would become preoccupied with sex. The group said such materials were immoral, since Thailand is a Buddhist country, and they could also lead to more sex-related crimes and harassment.

Just 20.53% of respondents agreed with the proposal, saying that people should be allowed to produce pornographic films and other materials in the modern era.

The rest, 2.43%, did not respond or were not interested.

The government of Thailand recently banned PornHub and all other pornography websites in a national crackdown.

Puttipong Punnakanta, Thailand’s digital minister, said the block is part of the country’s efforts to restrict access to pornographic and gambling content, which is prohibited by the country’s cybercrime laws.
