Would you surf porn in a public space?

I don't think I'd have the guts, much less the inclination. Still, this story caught my eye:
This Is Your Captain Speaking: Will the Gentleman in Seat 21A Please Stop Surfing Porn!

Blogger Dave Simmer has the opposing view, in Who Asked You, B*tch? on reading Maxim magazine in public.

Maxim, a PORN magazine?! You've gotta be kidding me! :huh:

Still, yeah, surfing porn sites in a public place is not exactly something very appropriate. It's not only that it might be seen by people who should not (or want to) see that, but also because I always considered such things a private matter, and personally, I prefer not to know about what people like to do in their intimacy.

Yes but only because I read mostly adult fiction rather than browse for images. At the worse, you can find me skipping through the sex scenes of an English translated Doujn like I was bored and looking for a plot. I guess that's what gives me the courage if I ever have to do it. I'd probably be too busy either recommending what I'm reading to any viewer for the story or too busy to tell them to skip the title if they ever complained.

Yea, exposing others to visual porn is almost as bad as making me listen to your cellphone conversation at 85db. Some people are super-sensitive. I will never forget the scene my older brother made when he demanded that me and Mom follow him out the door because he was offended by one scene in the movie we were watching: City Slickers (1991)!

He thought the scene -- just a visual, really -- where they were holding icepacks on their crotches was pornographic and no woman should be subjected to it. Jeezus.

____________
Mr. Sensitive sat in the car the rest of the movie while we enjoyed the rest of it.

Nope, I wouldn't. Firstly because I don't really surf for pr0n, second out of respect for the people around me.

I would probably read FHM or Maxim in public though... if I didn't think they were lame, boring, childish and sucky excuses for people who don't have the guts to purchase a real pr0n magazine.

If this foul-mouthed and infantile diatribe is the best rebuttal Dave Simmer could come up with, he's in worse shape than the woman who told him off to begin with.

There's few things more pitiful to observe than some late 40-something guy trying to come across as a 20-something hipster. :down:

Responding to jerks by acting like one doesn't accomplish anything other than to play into the hands of the self-righteous zealots.

Sucky excuses? Don't have the guts?

Wow! You almost make purchasing a magazine containing eye-candy sound like it's a competitive sport - or a political statement of some sort!  ;D

I agree. The brain is the only real erogenous zone. Everything else is merely acrobatics and plumbing. ;D

Reminds me of an older guy I worked with one summer when I was in high school. One of the "young bucks" was eyeballing a copy of Penthouse. When he saw the older guy, he held up the magazine and said "Check this out!"

The older guy glanced over briefly before he lit his cigarette and got a cup of coffee. "Why show me?" he said. "I've seen better - and had worse." :P
