Interestingly, we are just behind the United States and the United Kingdom.

Center had asked ISPs to ban 827 porn-websites in October

But first, let's talk about the ban.

In October, after complying with a Uttarakhand High Court's order, the Center asked Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to ban 827 porn-websites, including Pornhub.

However, Pornhub launched a mirror website to circumvent the ban. It can be accessed using a new domain- pornhub.net.

Defending the move, the website said watching adult content privately is completely legal in India.

Pornhub VP said they're willing to work with Indian government

Talking about the ban, Pornhub Vice-President Corey Price complained, the "court banned larger sites and left many smaller sites, including ones that offer illegal content." However, they're willing to work with the Indian government to address their concerns and find a common ground, he added.
