  • Of all the places to surf the one handed web
  • I’d have thought that a busy train in to Central London of a morning wouldn’t be the first choice location for flogging on, but it would appear I was wrong!

    For the second time in recent weeks, I found myself sitting alongside a chap watching bongo on his phone and trying, without success obviously, to hide that fact. It’s not like it’s a location in which you can have a quick shuffle or something is it, so why on earth watch ‘art films’ on a train?

    Most odd.

    ewwww what a rotter.

    Nice…

    Though out of interest, how do you surf two handed, particularly on a phone?

    Did the ‘train go into the tunnel’?

    I’ve experienced this too, but my fellow passengers invariably want me to turn the iPad round so all can join in…. πŸ˜‰

    Poor chap. His mum should have told him not to Skype her at work.

    I’m amazed that someone would think that type of thing was okay to do.

    It would be really good if you reported it. I know it’s not that they can catch the guy as he’s long gone but at least the Police would be more aware it is happening in that location.

    At least take the opportunity to log it on http://ldn.ihollaback.org – it’s not just women getting groped they are looking to log – any unacceptable sexual stuff going on on the street.

    hmmm – well, back in the good ol’ pre-internet days, when I was a stoodent, I worked in pretty grotty pub that had a video jukebox. music videos often feature scantily clad girlies. not something that would have me cracking one off in a pub thinking that because it was all happening under a table no-one could see. but you’d be surprised how many people did

    It’s a bit weird, and not something I’d do – but why should I report it to the police?

    What exactly is “unacceptable sexual stuff”?

    Its anything that makes a woman feel threatened or uncomfortable

    (I am not sure what benefit reporting to police would have here though)

    Well watching porn on the train strikes me as fairly “unacceptable sexual stuff” to me. πŸ˜•

    Someone watching a porn video, without any other kind of interaction with other passengers… is that threatening? And I’m not sure you have a right to feel “comfortable”, however desirable that may be.

    Its anything that makes a womannyone else feel threatened or uncomfortable

    Surely?

    But then, this;

    Someone watching a porn video, without any other kind of interaction with other passengers… is that threatening? And I’m not sure you have a right to feel “comfortable”, however desirable that may be.

    seems pretty much spot on to me.

    It’s a very odd thing to do, I think we can all agree, but it’s not really illegal, and it’s hardly ‘threatening’. Now, if he’d been openly watching it, trews round ankles and fapping away in the carriage? That would be rather different!

    As it is, just a very, very strange place to watch pron.

    I wouldn’t want to see it and I think thats a reasonable expectation in a public space.

    I’m sure my FIL uses the term ‘bongo bongo land’ in his un-ending quest to be the most racist person alive. However, I may need to re-think.

    Perhaps he knows of some magical place that is populated entirely with grot and not indeed full of ‘darkies’ (his term) πŸ˜‰

    Maybe, maybe not – but who are you to define “reasonable”? Should we go for a lowest common denominator when it comes to reasonableness, say a mix of outraged Mail readers and Muslim fanatics?

    I don’t personally think watching porn in public is socially acceptable, but equally I don’t think it should be illegal.

    I’ve been involved in an investigation of a company director. Big, high powered job in a large company, must have been on say Β£400k-Β£500k plus options. Guy gets caught during the working day, watching porn in his office by his PA. He’d had an ADSL line installed in his office to get past the filters we had in place.

    Guys gets pulled in (rather than off) to CEO and HR disciplinary, gets a real telling off. You’re only still here because of your position conversation. I strip the ADSL line out, PA gets a keep quiet bonus (note that I didn’t), everyone carries on as normal. I stick an alert on his user id on the corporate proxy.

    Two days later the proxy starts squawking about anonymous proxy bypasses from him and he’s back on the filth.

    Some people just can’t stop themselves. It’s an addiction. Like those people who are good looking enough to be addicted to sex.

    I doubt many would think watching porn on public transport is anything other than odd and not the best place for it

    The who decides argument can be used for any law so it pointless – elected representatives of the people is the answer

    TBH I did not realise it needed to be made illegal as I assumed everyone had the sense to not do it in public [ or at least so they could not be seen]…southerners eh πŸ˜‰

    So what did you do CaptainFlashheart?

    a. Pointed and said ‘look everyone, he’s watching porn’
    b. Had a few sneaky glances and made use of that hole in your pocket.
    c. Pretended not to notice

    or something else?

    …at least he wasn’t reading the Daily Wail

    or children?

    Unless CFH is a lot younger than I thought I don’t think the “gentleman” in question was looking at porn in front of any kids.

    RB, I glanced across, I believe he noticed that I’d noticed as he shuffled the phone away sharpish.

    I then raised an eyebrow, and returned to my coffee and crossword. (Which I didn’t finish this morning. Am most annoyed)

    Is there any etiquette for dealing with this? Pretty sure it’s not covered in any editions of Debrett’s that I’ve seen! Wondering if the best approach would be to pipe up with, “I say, this chap sitting next to me is watching some gentertainment on his phone, the dirty old horndog!”

    Perhaps comment on the film itself? “I say, that chap’s awfully well-endowed in the trouser department, isn’t he? Must be at least, what, 10 inches!”

    Yeah – ignore it and mind your own business.

    New one on me too. At first I wondered what was wrong with watching drum solos.

    Depending on your phone and brassiness of your neck somewhere on the web there is a flash driven page that screams out PORN or similar. I’m at work so I’m not going to look for it or post a link.

    He’s very fresh faced. It’s probably his youthful good lucks that got the gentleman thinking about these things.

    Jeez. 😐 Anyone else notice?

    I don’t think so, CG. As mentioned on the tribute other thread, Bongoman was on the window seat and self on the aisle seat.

    once had a guy on the bus, travelling from inverness to edinburgh, he had been, er, beating about the bush all the way until about kinross, when he decided to whip it out and go for it.
    the old woman he was sitting next to told me later ‘i dont think he’s right in the head’ !!
    i was like ‘really?’
    there are some odd people about.
    ps, bus **** got arrested.

    “bongo” is a northern thing, worse still is Umbongo, which I believe is from way down deep in the middle of the Congo.

    When the UK “sends aid to Bongo Bongo land” what exactly are we doing??

    Are we shipping well endowed gentlemen to some sort of porn production facility?? Will they come for me in the middle of the night and take me away??

    I think there’s a distinction between bongo singular, referring to rhythm pamphlets and their electronic offspring, and bongo plural, which isn’t.

    For the purposes of this thread, it’s the singular. Bongo. However, if, as mentioned above, this is some Northern thing, I shall have to stop using it immediately. πŸ˜‰

    windows in trains can be quite reflective, are you sure there was someone sat next to you and you weren’t LOOKING AT YOURSELF!?!

    I used to be area manager for a chain of academic bookshops, one of which was located at a university. I took a call one Sunday eve from our HR department who had been alerted to the fact that the store computer had been used to access, for want of a better term β€˜granny porn’ websites. We narrowed it down to a 20 year old lad in the end, and he never turned up for his disciplinary hearing. The best of it was, the book shop had been open when he was accessing the website, and it opened out into the refectory. There was a good chance he had been sat behind the counter pleasuring himself in full view of his fellow students whilst they tucked into their lunch.

    I remember heading into one of those “academic bookshops” in St. Mary’s in Southampton, very educational it was too. Of course, with the rise of internet bongo material it’s probably shut down now.
