To ask my OH to clear You Porn from my iPad history?!

So I firstly have to say I don't mind if my OH wants to watch porn. We have a good sex life and he's not playing away. I just get so hacked off at switching on my iPad to be faced with a freeze frame of some porn video! This is not the first time he's done this and I don't for one minute think its done intentionally but how can I broach this subject? Get it off my iPad! shock

Why don't you clear it yourself and then ask him not to watch it on your iPad?

Really? Just tell him confused

In your position I'd tell him you couldn't care less that he watches porn but you don't want to see it every time you turn on your ipad. You expect him to clear it from your ipad next time he's watched it. And that if it happens again you simply won't let him use it in future.

Put a pass code on the iPad and don't tell him the code. Problem solved.

Yes, passcode it

Treat him like the hormonal, can't-be-arsed teenager he is acting like, and confiscate the Ipad

I don't get how you're happy for him to watch porn yet not comfortable talking to him about it...? confused

Tinks30 Tue 05-Mar-13 20:38:43

Lol AnyFucker! It is reminiscent of being back at home with my pubescent brothersgrin

I didn't say I was happy I just don't mind but I don't want to have to look at it myself.

AnyFucker Germany Tue 05-Mar-13 20:39:44

do you have dc, btw ?

Tinks30 Tue 05-Mar-13 20:43:00

Yes but they're v young so it's generally kept up high out of their reach

WellSlapMyThighAndCallMeNancy Tue 05-Mar-13 20:44:57

He is BU.

YouPorn is crap.

StickEmUp Tue 05-Mar-13 20:47:15

Tell him to buy his own ipad for porn.

AnyFucker Germany Tue 05-Mar-13 20:53:51

You know why I am asking, dontcha

And they won't always be too young to reach the evidence of "freeze framed" sexual images darling daddy has been gawping at

Tinks30 Tue 05-Mar-13 20:56:03

Tres good point AnyFucker. I shall man up and have a serious chat about this. They already love playing with the kiddie apps on my phone so you're right.....it won't be long.

AnyFucker Germany Tue 05-Mar-13 20:59:35

And his phone ?

Do the kiddiwinks play with his phone ?

I would imagine someone with such poor impulse control coupled with an appalling memory and can't-be-arsed attitude is a prime candidate for having porn on his phone too

Tinks30 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:00:57

No, his is password protected luckily

Beepbeep1 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:01:41

My DH clears the porn.

Tinks30 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:01:41

No, his is password protected luckily

Nagoo Tue 05-Mar-13 21:02:18

Go into your chrome settings and tell it not to remember the history on most visited. A problem for us was if DH looked on another computer it would still remember it on the ipad as he was logged into chrome. Luckily it was me that found it! angry

It's one thing to look at it, another entirely not to secure your children.

Beepbeep1 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:02:46

And (annoyingly) logs me out of MN and FB in the process.

Tinks30 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:03:43

No, his is always password protected. We'll have words tonight. He'll be cool about it if a bit embarrassed at first blush

I think you missed my point, OP. My point was that you're OK with him watching porn, but NOT OK with asking telling him to be a bit more grownup in the way he does it.

SpanishFly Tue 05-Mar-13 21:59:33

Which seems a back-to-front attitude.
