Possibly what you're trying to access has malware, trojans, viruses and ransomware hidden in it🙄  https://www.pcworld.com/article/2034864/just-how-much-malware-is-on-free-porn-sites-.html

What site(s) is it- some should be fine (provided you have parental controls off) but some may have issues as Buffer points out

Hiya @Shamus775 and welcome to the community, sorry to hear your leisure time has been disruption.

Do you have Web Safe turned on by any chance?

You can check this by logging into My Virgin Media here: https://virg.in/myVM and heading to 'My Apps' > 'Web Safe'. You'll then see switched for 'Virus Safe' and 'Child Safe'.

Best,

It's best to ensure that you have virus / trojan protection enabled before visiting porn sites. However, there is still a risk for malware. Just be aware of clicked links and anything attempting to download. Also run a good AV package regularly.
