"Most men look at porn because their wives don't look after themselves. The moment they get married they pile on the weight and stop bothering with their appearance."

hmm

ROFL @ the argument that it's because women don't look after themselves - given that the article is illustrated with pictures of Jacqui Smith and husband. Question - Which one of these has 'let themselves go'?
grin

What a stupid crappy article. Very dubious science, the same old ridiculous clcihes, no recogniton AT ALL of the fact that lots of couples like to look at sexually explicit material togehter and plenty of women like to look at it themselves.
But it's the Daily Fail, what do you expect.

The key thing is this '*if you ignore him once the children come along or use sex as a weapon in a relationship*'

What about men who (gasp, shock horror) just enjoy porn as well as having a healthy relationship with their partner? Surely they're not suggesting that looking at porn is along the same lines as being unfaithful?

Their whole point seems to be that all women find men looking at porn to be disgusting. And you can bet your ass that the journo's husband does have a look occasionally.

I'd really like to know if other countries in Europe have Daily Mail equivalent [I suspect Italy at least does] or whether we are unique in our vapid, misogynist, misanthropic opinions.

Real journalism, eh? Nothing new to report on, so we're reporting on internet porn.

I think it was poorly written and not newsworthy at all. Even the sensationalist title is disgusting.

Totally one sided (only men look at porn?) and tries to put the blame on a minority group (classic DM tactic).

Yuck.

Hard porn is most detrimental and insulting to women and promotes disrespect. Internet port is
really bad but I do ask mothers here, because none has referred to it, via just a couple of clicks of the mouse one can view the worst kind
of output. Most children aged ten years can find it in a matter of seconds.
Why are you not concerned about this?

what reality said smile

Surely one should be concerned about Internet porn that is available to children via just a few clicks of the mouse - no one is referring to it.

PuzzleRocks Wed 05-Aug-09 09:50:16

Yup, just what Reality said.

magicbev Wed 05-Aug-09 09:52:56

My previous post was placed because I had thought my original one had failed - cant remove?

I do think it is very sad that kids can tap into the vilest porn within a few seconds. Person here must be equally sad to disagree with that

JRocks Wed 05-Aug-09 09:56:37

Nobody disgreed with that, as far as I'm aware. But that wasn't what was being talked about. It's not just the vilest porn that's available on the internet - there's all sorts of gruesome stuff out there that children need protecting from. Like Reality said, that's what internet settings are for.

PuzzleRocks Wed 05-Aug-09 10:00:29

Straw man anyone?

magicbev Wed 05-Aug-09 10:03:09

Internet settings are fine in your house! But what of the large number of our population who have access to computers whilst irresponsible parents (or single parents) are out on the tiles. One child (female!) was murdered recently aged only five years by a child minder of just 15 years. What sort of parent is this?
Anyone here who is saying that all house computers are safe is living in a dream world.
Most kids are great (poor little sods) it is the adults who need looking after.

"Internet port is really bad"

Now I quite like the idea of internet port. Plug a tap into your USB and away you go. Look, here you are

UD - What about your poor little children? How would you stop them becoming alcoholics?

"single parents out on the tiles" hmm How very dare they!

UnquietDad Wed 05-Aug-09 10:10:03

Internet pawn would be quite good too.

Oh, we've already got it. It's called eBay.
