The government of Iceland has opened a consultation process into whether violent pornography should be banned completely. VoR's Tim Ecott asked Halla Gunnarsdottir, political adviser to the interior minister, why the Icelandic government was so concerned.

With a population of just over 300,000 people, the island has a reputation for high levels of social care and a tight-knit sense of community.

This at the matter of concern because the mainstream porn Internet today it’s not just a sexually explicit material or a set of images of people having sex but it’s a very violent and degrading material.

So it’s very much the idea that the Government in Iceland is wanting to consider - whether this very violent, what you would call hard-core pornography, is likely to be affecting the minds of young Icelanders?

Yes, it affects their sexuality development and it affects their ideas about themselves and about gender relations. So that’s the matter of concern. And what is referred to, as you said to hard-core pornography that most people agree is unhealthy, it is in fact the mainstream pornography on the Internet today.
