Why is Japanese Porn “mosaic blur” Censored?

Unless you are a pure individual, you probably know that Japanese porn is censored. Male and female genitalia are censored using a mosaic blur. If you watch Japanese porn expecting to see the female crotch area, you will likely see something like this instead:

Why is this so? Why does Japan, one of the largest markets for pornography in the world, force film makers to censor their films?

Porn was first seriously restricted in Japan in the Meiji Era, when materials deemed “injurious to public morals” were banned. After Japan’s defeat in WW2, American occupation authorities changed many of Japan’s laws to guarantee freedom of speech and expression. Sadly, the occupation authorities decided that the pre-existing law regarding pornography didn’t need to be changed. It has remained in effect to this day.

While the 60 years after World War II saw the acceptance of uncensored pornography as freedom of expression in the West, Japan continued to consider it “injurious to public morals.” One still cannot legally buy a movie featuring fully visible hardcore action.

In recent years it seems that the definition of “injurious to public morals” has been relaxed. Ten years ago, pubic hair was censored: now it is not. Last year, the American film Kinsey was allowed to air in Japanese theaters uncensored. The scene in which Dr. Kinsey is giving a slideshow of penis/vagina picture made history as the first ever scene showing human genitalia allowed by the censors.

Does this mean we will be seeing uncensored porn anytime soon? Probably not; the display of genitalia in a serious educational setting is a far cry from pure porno. Until then most porn consumers within Japan cannot legally buy uncensored porn.

The uncensored Japanese porn that exists does so because 1) It was made for foreign export, or 2) It was illegally produced/uncensored. Certain machines are supposedly capable of removing certain types of mosaic censoring. Various knobs are used to adjust settings to match the mosaic censoring, while a small joystick is used to target a certain area of the video. This doesn’t stop Japanese guys from shelling out hundreds of bucks for such machines. Smarter men go onto the internet, where the uncensored movies made for export are downloadable from sites hosted outside Japan. such as Mininova, Piratebay and famous Limewire p2p clients

Censorship is enough to completely turn off most Americans to Japanese porn. They are so used to seeing hardcore penetration shots that the fact that they can’t actually see the genitals make the porn useless to them. It’s a shame, since Japanese pornography often far superior to American adult videos. Japanese porn doesn’t focus on the penetration shot, instead using a variety of direction styles to create a sex scene. Without censorship, most Japanese directors would be as lazy as their American counterparts, who rely heavily on close-ups of penetration. I believe that most of Japan’s wacky and innovative porn is a partial response to censorship.

How to Secure Squid Proxy

How to Secure Squid Proxy?

Configure an NCSA-style username and password authentication

lets assume that squid is installed and working fine following the guide here

Tip: Before going further, test basic Squid functionality. Make sure squid is functioning without requiring authorization

Step # 1: Create a username/password

First create a NCSA password file using htpasswd command. htpasswd is used to create and update the flat-files used to
store usernames and password for basic authentication of squid users.

$ htpasswd /etc/squid/passwd xmodx

Output:

New password:
Re-type new password:
Adding password for user xmodx

Make sure squid can read passwd file:
$ chmod o+r /etc/squid/passwd

Step # 2: Locate nsca_auth authentication helper

Usually nsca_auth is located at /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth. You can find out location using rpm (Redhat,CentOS,Fedora) or dpkg (Debian and Ubuntu) command:
$ dpkg -L squid | grep ncsa_auth

Output:

/usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth


If you are using RHEL/CentOS/Fedora Core or RPM based distro try:

$ rpm -ql squid | grep ncsa_auth

Output:

/usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth

Step # 3: Configure nsca_auth for squid proxy authentication

Now open /etc/squid/squid.conf file

$ pico /etc/squid/squid.conf

Append (or modify) following configration directive:
auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth /etc/squid/passwd
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm Welcome to xMoDx Proxy Server
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours
auth_param basic casesensitive off

Also find out your ACL section and append/modify
acl ncsa_users proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow ncsa_users
