You can decide when-and-where to indulge your titillations, and "public transportation" does not have to be one of them.
wrong post sorry.

now adults can no longer even talk about issues having to do with seeing some one else watching other people having sex in a video in public in public.

what?

go hide in a closet if you're going to talk about such things.

It seems to me that what constitutes proper public behavior is a legitimate topic of discourse in the LQ General Forum. It's not as if it's a discussion of the imagery in the works of John Clelan--oh, never mind.

I know there are porn addicts out there, but seriously they can't wait a few measly minutes to get home to get their porn fix?

I see a lot of stupid shit in public, and I don't care about people smoking - but come on now - just wait until you get home, sheesh! *facepalm*

I do care about people smoking in public places. Why should they be allowed to pollute the air I have to breathe? But porn? Is anyone really going to crane over someone else's shoulder to see what he's watching on his phone? I posted this story because I thought it was part of the funnier side of modern technology.

I agree. I'm not sure if my flippant remarks have actually been taken seriously.

Actually I don't think it's in good taste to try to mix sax and violins but who am I to decide what you find entertaining? especially on a 4 inch screen and with headphones.

on public transport? i do.
'snot my fault if they decide to show us intimate conversations or other details of their private life.
or just watch a tv show, even with subtitles!
demanding private space on a bus during rush hour is insane.

That's pretty much my take on things.
I think if somebody is displaying pornography on public transport and it's being seen by kids, for example, then they should be told to stop and not stopping should, perhaps, then become potentially illegal but I don't agree with asking people to actively try to fond others watching pornography and report them that's going too far. In other words -- a polite request to stop doing something if it's an issue should be the first recourse rather than immediately invoking "The Law".
I wonder whether people will be asked to report others reading 50 Shades Of Grey next?

When that trilogy first came out, I saw quite a few people reading it on the tube. I've also seen a lot of copies in charity shops, so I guess those people mostly didn't think it was worth a second read.

The ultimate review of that book is by Kitty Catastrophe:

Yes but if you're willing to "open that door" YOU become responsible for who or what "walks through".
