In 2020, Malaysians were spending almost 9 months at home due to the lockdown imposed nationwide. Given that lack of entertainment, it seems that many Malaysians have been killing time by entertaining themselves at PornHub.

This came into light after a statistics shown by the world’s largest adult entertainment site, using keywords related to Covid-19 outbreak. It is also revealed that Malaysia ranks 4th in terms of the highest views of the site, just behind Slovakia, Bulgaria, and Ireland.

On Wednesday (8 December), Kemaman Member of Parliament (MP) Che Alias Hamid has raised the concern about the growing number of people who spend their time on pornography, adding that it is “worrying”.

“How far is the committment of the government in blocking the access to the pornography websites in our country?” he asked in the Dewan Rakyat.

He said the statistics showed that Malaysia is the Asian country with the highest views on pornography websites during the Movement Control Order (MCO) in 2020, but did not explicitly mention the website in Parliament.

Despite the statistics only show the period when the country was under the Movement Control Order (MCO), he explain that there is a possibility that people will be addicted to watching porn.

Therefore, he urged the government to take necessary actions to block all access to pornography websites, as he fears the repercussions that may follow.

“The addiction will produce a generation of Malaysians who are physically healthy but with a sick mind.” Alias claimed.

According to the Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), it had blocked 2,921 pornographic websites from September 2018 to the end of 2020 and they are still actively blocking access to pornographic websites at the moment.

The MCMC has also responded to the statistics released by PornHub, as well as a news report that said three to four out of 10 Malaysians subscribe or view pornographic material every week.

In addition, Malay Mail reported that PDRM saw an increase in child pornography cases, where a total of 45 child pornography cases were reported from March 2020 to April 2021, compared to 18 cases from February 2019 to March 2020.
