Strictly speaking, there is nothing saying that you must.

 

The Feds have been trying to Stamp Out Online Pornography for years, and the adult industry (and various lobbying groups) have been holding them at bay by saying that the industry was capable of self-regulating. The industry VOLUNTEERED to put up those age confirmation pages, register their pages with RSAC and other parental rating sites (as Daddy is alone in doing among escort sites), etc.

 

It's COMPLETELY volunteer.

 

But every site that does not comply gives the feds more ammunition in the "see? they're exposing kids to porn!" argument, and puts all other sites at risk. Their argument will be "see? they can't all do it!"

 

It's completely up to you. But your decision may impact all of us.

 

(and that's massively oversimplified, for what it's worth)

I have always assumed that given the constraints of the Internet where it is not practical to check someone's age with documentation that can be verified, the age confirmation allows the provider of services intended for an adult audience to claim that best efforts were made. Of course, where financial transactions are involved over the Internet, having to provide a credit card is some assurance that the person named on the card is an adult.
