How to Search For Porn Without Getting Caught

India, in a country that wrote the definitive sex manual, here comes another ban – your favourite porn website is now blocked. It is well-known fact that legislators can watch porn at work, hence please observe a minute of silence for the fact that but you can't do the same, even in a locked room!

The end of porn watching in India was debated over twitter over the weekend. Including Vodafone, MTNL, ACT, Hathway and BSNL all Porn sites were inaccessible on most internet service providers (ISPs). So you ended up on blank pages if you were searching for popular porn sites like Pornhub or Redtube. More than 800 porn websites will be blocked in the country, this might happen for a few more months as reports suggest that. There are over a million porn websites and they can't block all even if they wanted to. I hope these guys know that, which they clearly do.

If you're into that kind of stuff, no one can make you stop watching porn. So here are 5 ways you can still access porn sites, even if they are blocked.

1. Get on a VPN (Virtual Private Network)
A VPN or Virtual Private Network helps you encrypt traffic between your device and the VPN server. This will give you access to your favourite porn website and still keep you safe. On your Android or iOS smartphone, you can get a VPN easily. Get a VPN for your computer here.

2. Change Your DNS Server
A DNS server is like an index with a list of domain names. ISP can choose to redirect the request to a different site or a blank page as in the case of porn when you type in a website address in your browser, your device sends a request to the DNS server. It could open up your connection by a simple DNS server change. There are many third-party DNS services on the internet that are free and fully open. The ones that are run by Google and open DNS are the most popular sites. Enjoy the cache raat just by changing your DNS server settings to theirs and

3. Proxy Servers
When Orkut was blocked in school computer labs, you could just go to a proxy server and access the social network, remember how?

This is exactly the same. Bypassing most of the restrictions set up by the ISPs or the network administrators, you get a lot of proxies on the world wide web that allow you to use their Internet connection. A quick Google search for ‘anonymous browsing proxy' will give you a long list of services available on the web.

4. Go Dark
Just go dark If the normal web stops you from making yourself happy. Download a Tor browser and go anonymous. Many restrictors like to call it Dark Web, this will get you on the Tor network which lets you enter the world of the Deep Web. Everything is accessible to a user on Tor, including porn. To go anonymous and get access, this one is the easiest way. 5. Use Cached Pages

This might give you limited access to your favourite porn website. You won't be left with outdated content as this mirrored content is refreshed quite often. You may not be able to use interactive content, such as streaming media this is the only downside in using this technique. Even a Google search can get you a cached link to your favourite porn site.

Go ahead and enjoy. Just remember to lock the room.

Will IT Know if I Watch Porn on My Work Computer?

Future Tense
There are really two issues to address here—whether you are entitled to a new computer, and whether you actually need one.

First, most companies expect their devices to last three or so years. Check if your company has a policy on the hardware it issues to employees, and don't feel guilty doing so.

If you are not eligible for a new device, your IT person will try to figure out why you think you need one: Is the software struggling with outdated hardware, or is the computer beach balling because you've filled up your hard drive with cat memes and selfies? Given how long you've worked at your company, it's definitely reasonable to ask for a new device, but don't rule out the possibility that you might be your own computer's worst enemy. Just be prepared for IT to troubleshoot what they think might be the cause of your issues before handing over a new laptop.

If you frequently rely on IT to fix issues with your machine, maybe bring them a doughnut or some other delicious treat once in a while to appeal to their better nature.

One possibility is you don't have enough RAM—say, only 4 GB. A few years ago, that kind of memory capacity was more than enough. Today, a typical user will need about 8 GB to multitask comfortably, in my experience. So it's possible a RAM upgrade will end your woes—unless of course, your computer model has the RAM soldered to the motherboard.

What's that? You do have 8 GB of RAM and your IT person had you delete some of those cat memes, but you still need a new computer? It could just be that you want a new computer. It's hard not to run for the latest features, the newest design, and a slimmer product as soon as it hits the stores. But sometimes manufacturers put out a tech a little too hastily. Look at the newest MacBook Pro, from 2016: The first iteration had users mourning over the revamped keyboard, the form of which screwed the function.
