to convey to my neighbour that his viewing choices are available for all and sundry to see?

The OverTheRoaders have front bay window, with a massive tv on show.

Erm, they are rather fond of watching ThrustingAndMoistChannel and everybody on the road would receive an eyeful if they passed at the wrong momnet iyswim?


So, I'm wondering wether I should screw my courage to the sticky place and HaveAWord? Or perhaps I should suck it up and just rely on my stiff outer lip?

I was thinking of the neighbourly route of excess baked goods as an excuse to pop over and start a conversation?

Spotted dick?

Would you speak about it or just let it lie?

Oh god - I'd send an anoymous note. Through the post. Typewritten.

Please draw your curtains before watching porn

Do they have Pampas Grass in the front garden ?

I like the note idea. How about "If you're going to watch porn, can you move the chair a bit so we can all see? And do it earlier, I have to be up for work in the morning. Ta ever so"

Post them some net curtains.

I'm usually on the side of "you shouldn't be looking in their window", but in this case a little hint about net curtains might be acceptable. If you can carry it off then face to face is nicer than a note. I'd find that a bit tricky to get right though.

No pampass grass.


They have, over the years, had shuffke around in their living room. The Tv was previously in this highly visible position, and had obviously been turned around, but I noticed last night that it's back in its explicit place.


I could ice a message on the spotted dick?

LaurieFairyCake Wed 31-Aug-11 17:55:31

Is he also bashing his bish at the same time?

He's really not watching it for the story and character development ..........

ExitPursuedByATroll Wed 31-Aug-11 17:55:43

Sorry to be naive, but is ThrustingAndMoistChannel real or something you made up to illustrate your point?

I would go with the anonymous note. But I am a coward.

eurochick Wed 31-Aug-11 17:56:02

They presumably know but don't care? I'd stay out of it.

stripeywoollenhat Wed 31-Aug-11 17:56:08

they've moved the tv to facilitate neighbourly viewing? maybe they are hoping that you'll knock in...?

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 31-Aug-11 17:58:45

Spotted dick

MrGin Wed 31-Aug-11 17:59:58

Could always covertly attempt to use your remote control on their telly from outside.

HalfTermHero Wed 31-Aug-11 18:00:26

I think I'd ignore it too. They must realise that their TV is visable from the road. They must love a bit of hardore and just don't care who knows. In fact, it might be a honeytrap to see if anyone comes knocking for a bit of wife swopping.......

ChaosTrulyReigns Wed 31-Aug-11 18:01:50

Please will someone say YABU/YANBU to ratify my thread palcement please?


thisisyesterday Wed 31-Aug-11 18:03:12


you may find that they're rather hoping that people will notice, and come round....


karlmarxthespot Wed 31-Aug-11 18:04:20

YANBU. Here's something to take the note and cake over the road on.

BaronessBomburst Wed 31-Aug-11 18:05:34


Pissing myself laughing at this. grin grin
I'd just knock on his door and say, just thought you'd like to know, the whole street can see you watching porn. grin

GreatNorksOfFire Wed 31-Aug-11 18:05:44

grin @ Chaos - worried Bibbety's going to get you?!

YANBU. Of course you should convey that to your neighbour. Why don't you suggest an alternative to him - something to suit your preferences more than 'ThrustingAndMoistChannel' does?

PlatonicMitten Wed 31-Aug-11 18:05:58

Just tell them it is so good that they have chosen to have their tv on that wall, as it means you can watch their programs without paying.

BaronessBomburst Wed 31-Aug-11 18:06:55

karlmarxthespot They're sold out! was that MNers again?

GreatNorksOfFire Wed 31-Aug-11 18:07:07

Now, Karl have you been buying all of those up?? They are currently out of stock. What fine taste you must have.

I can't believe I'm saying this but Won't somebody please think of the children? grin

Seriously though, I'd hate for ds to see that stuff. That's why I'd want to do something about it (although I am a wuss, hence the note thing).

I like the idea of posting nets through the door. They're piss cheap.
