What would you do if you found out your SO had porn on his/her computer?
One of the women I work with had a total meltdown yesterday morning because her husband had girlie pics on his computer. Mind you, these were fully clothed girlie pics---not even actual porn---but suggestive nonetheless. :yoiks: Playing the Devil's advocate, I asked her if she thought he was seeing other women or had mental problems, and she looked shocked. She said, "Absolutely not!" I then smiled and said, "Well, I really don't think there's any harm in having those kinds of pictures." (I think she's from a sheltered background. Oh, and she's a total Repuke. :P)

My take on this subject is that it wouldn't bother me a bit. :) In fact, I might even have a few on MY computer. ;) :evilgrin:

8. you are such a tease
but from a male response, I think most men would find that sexy and erotic that your wife had such desires. I think there are alot of women who do not understand the visual side of men.

39. Perhaps it's because we DO understand the visual side of men
that the pics might offend.

21. full discolsure
at some point early on in the relationship. Better to get it out in open.

"Here is where I keep the porn on my computer. Please note how it's organized by who ties up whom. Over here are my porn DVDs (which consist of a handful of soft core penthouse vids and a couple classics like Deep Throat, Behind the Green Door, etc."

38. Frankly this is pretty stupid on his part
There is no reason not to put them on disk especially now that CD Roms are so easy to copy to. Not that I have any mind you (I don't) but this is akin to keeping old skin mags in the stack of Southern Living and Good Housekeeping ornamental collection in the living room.

Edited on Fri Aug-31-07 04:37 PM by alarimer
Kiddie porn or some of the violent, sick stuff out there- he would be gone from my life. Assuming it was not put there by some spyware or something like that.

Other stuff I might be more tolerant of, again depending on how much time he actually spent looking at it.

I know one thing- no one will be viewing it on MY computer.

54. Really?
Now I really feel old and out of it.

I find porn depressing at best. I'm not into "watching" and not much interested in what other people do (or pretend to do). Mr. Z. isn't a fan, either. We both manage to keep things interesting without it. :evilgrin:

To each his/her own, but I could understand why someone would be upset to "discover" porn on their SO's computer if there was never an agreement or understanding about it. Especially, if the relationship was already rocky.

The issue is being open and honest with each other.

61. I know that he has porn on his computer
I told him that I thought that it was excessive. He said that he wasn't really all that interested in it most of the time. He sends it on to friends who are completely into it. If those friends watch as much porn as they claim (and I have been around when they mentioned watching porn 4-6 hours per day), I think that there is something seriously wrong with them and perhaps a reason that they can't get a relationship to last. I don't know if my husband should be enabling them like that.

After she found her significant other, um, "engaged" while viewing porn on the computer.

The rest of us didn't really see any problem, but the woman claimed it showed that her SO wasn't fully committed to the relationship.

Edited on Fri Aug-31-07 09:15 PM by Zookeeper
to see him engaging his hand, instead of showing interest in her.

I can see why she'd be concerned, especially since they weren't even married yet. You have to wonder what he'd be like after 5 or 10 years of marriage.

Edited for clarity.

76. 18 U.S.C. 2257
requires producers of sexually explicit material to attain proof of age for every model they shoot, and keep those records on hand. Federal inspectors may at any time launch inspections of these records and prosecute any infraction.

Which is good.

I think this law was enacted after Traci Lords almost singlehandedly destroyed the U.S. pron industry.

81. Actually, it was enacted like 20 years later.
It just happened recently, which caused a bit of a hullabaloo for a lot of web sites.

98. Huh. They must have just added something about web sites then
because it was just recently that a lot of websites were up in an uproar, and a lot of message boards had to clear out every picture because they didn't have time to go through everything and see if it was 2257 approved.

83. Actually, his hottest picture
which is on the wall over his computer, *I* found for him. Let's just say it features a wonderfully voluptuous young lady with certain attire that, well, piques his interest. It makes the union MUCH more interesting when the spousal unit participates, don't you think?

84. Depends on the kind of porn.
Edited on Sun Sep-02-07 08:28 AM by philosophie_en_rose
If it's just smutty pics of grown-up people, I wouldn't really care. I'd probably tease him about it, though. (Ha Ha. Found your porn!)

But if it's Republican porn (kids, animals, cruelty), I'd be extremely concerned.

85. I would have no right to get on my wife's case. I've viewed some pretty racy
pics on my computer from time to time. If my wife was looking at hot guys on-line, I'd say she was pretty much normal.

86. Do you have access to your company's intranet?
Can you do work from home using company software, etc.?

If so, I would think twice about having any kind of site that could be the least bit construed as "porn" on the 'puter.

Just my $0.02.

88. I'd be a lot more worried if he didn't have porn.
I know someone who was a conservative Christian- they waited till the wedding night to have sex. The guy felt guilty about masturbating and was terrible in bed- they had sex 3 times during a 10 day honeymoon. The wife bought him a playboy magazine and he called her a whore... that was just the beginning.

When they divorced 16 years later they both said everything had been wrong from the beginning and he always threw the "porn" playboy magazine in her face. She claimed they only had sex 9 times in 16 years, 2 of those times were to conceive their 2 children. She thinks he is gay but he did remarry another fundamentalist christian and have 2 more children.

man with no porn = a little scary
