Viewers wanting to watching porn in the state Louisiana now have to submit state ID in order to verify their age before accessing the adult sites.

A new law went into effect on January 1 which holds porn sites accountable for content deemed 'harmful to minors' if they do not implement age verification technology. 

It means that anyone wanting to view pornography in the state must now submit a driving license or other age-identifying ID card.

Pornhub is currently the only site requiring visitors to verify their age through the LA Wallet app, a digital wallet for Louisiana state driver's licenses. 

The law, known as Act 440, allows porn sites to be sued for damages resulting from a minor's access to such content and is an unusually severe step in a series of government crackdowns in the name of child safety.
