Would you, should you watch porn in public?

Anyone care to discuss this issue?

I've never done it, because I would just be tempted to whack off, which is definitely frowned upon in public.

If the volume is off, or headphones in, I see no problem with it on a device like a phone or tablet. Mags are a little more difficult to be conspicuous about, and I too, would be concerned about someone leafing through a porn mag in the vicinity of a child.

I love my porn probably more than anyone.....but even I can get by till I get home - surely on a bus or train you shouldn't watch porn where there are woman and children using the same area - just get a grip and wait till you get home lol

The thought of Cridder and Matty whacking off is hotter than porn, but anyway....

Even if you could hide the porn from anyone else's eyes, it might not be so easy to hide the boner in your pants. Not to mention that pesky pre-cum wet spot in your jeans.

The power porn has over some people escapes me, so I don't understand it. It seems like it's rude and just demanding new rules and laws. It's like the frustration I feel when I see people boldly light up with pot in the park in the middle of the day with plenty of children around (they can smoke pot if they have a medical card for it), they're just putting the lenient laws at risk for everyone else (though if it were up to me it would be as legal as drinking beer, the morality of it is irrelevant, it's the thought of people who have genuine medical need being restricted and placed at risk because some people have to have a "fuck you, I've got a get out of jail card" about it).

I bet if people were looking at actual magazines that it would be nipped in the bud, and they don't even have sound. It just seems stupid and begging for trouble, though I did know of one man at a library I used to volunteer at who got banned over it, first from the computers, and then a permanent ban from the library after he then snuck onto a computer in the children's section to access porn (this was back around the year 2000). He had to know he was going to get busted.

On top of that, what are the laws about showing kids porn? It seems risky to be viewing it where kids can see it (whether or not kids look it up on their own is irrelevant, I'm talking about how laws are enforced, not whether those laws are justified). I don't know why people would take the chance.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I'm shocked some people think this is even an option.

Have to agree with you Emiliano. Personally I think it is totally unacceptable whether children are present or not.

Yep, get a good grip, and a grope when you're home safely.

Actually, I don't know if anyone thinks like me, but I can watch porn as dispassionately
as I can get excited by it. It's about mood and opportunity. I don't think I'd 'allow' myself to get an erection if I knew I risked being caught out with an inappropriate boner. I'm guessing there are many of us gays out there who've learnt to curb our sexual urges to fit the right moment. What do you guys think? A boner in public is still seen as embarrassing and unseemly, which is weird, when you think about it, because it's like getting goose pimples when it's cold or sweating when it gets too hot.

From what I've read in the article and the reactions, it might seem like a good way to keep people at bay and keep yourself a cosy seat on public transport, if people are first tempted to move away from the offender rather than have to put up with embarrassment, or shame, or awkwardness.
