‘Explicit porn movie’ remains on YouTube, users disgusted (Updated)

Explicit

Update – 01/05/2016

The video covered in our news story has now been removed from YouTube, after spending over half a year online. So that’s that.

A highly explicit video (NSFW) featuring a couple having sex has been uploaded to YouTube and is yet to be taken down, much to the frustration of angry commentors.

Whilst the raunchy video in question has been on the video-sharing website since March, the 2 minute clip has recently been doing the rounds online once more, with a new wave of surprised YouTube users furious that the clip is still online.

The age-restricted video, which has now been viewed over 20 million times, has been categorised into YouTube’s Science & Technology section, presumably staying online because it offers ‘educational value’. Many YouTube users continue to argue over what should or shouldn’t be classed as ‘educational’ when it comes to sexual content.

Is YouTube doing enough to protect younger viewers from questionable material?

Unsurprisingly, the comments section on the video is busy. One viewer wrote: “How does YouTube allow this!?!?” Another added: “Why is this on YouTube?”

In similar news, The Daily Star recently reported on another explicit YouTube video causing a stir, although since the article was written the video has been removed.

Writing about the x-rated movie, journalist Oliver Barnett wrote: “[The video] shows full and uncensored footage of a naked woman in bath. The three minute “sex tape” was posted on YouTube a few weeks ago and has already been viewed over three million times”.

Should YouTube keep ‘educational’ sexual content online or improve censorship? Share your thoughts by tweeting us at @TubeChum.
