DVDs in Cars Play Porn: Obscenity?

Good God, people. Get a hobby:

A driver in Schenectady, New York, was arrested last month after rolling past police with a DVD titled “Chocolate Foam” playing on the passenger-side sun visor in his Mercedes-Benz, authorities said.

This is playing on a thirteen inch LCD panel and people on the street are still staring at it?! I think my parents did it up right with erotica with us growing up. All the sex books, Playboys, the Anais Nin… anything other families might consider dirty, was always available for us to read, peruse or ask questions about. Kids are going to encounter pornography at some time and the more prepared parents make them, the better off they’ll be. In our family it was, ‘Some adults enjoy looking or reading these kinds of materials and they are really intended for adults but we don’t want you to think it’s wrong so read all you want.’ There wasn’t any kind of smackdown or forbidden fruit aspect. This is sex. Everybody likes different things. You may or may not. But it it everyone’s right to enjoy their sexuality as they see fit. I think maybe we were raised too mature about sex growing up – it kept me out of a high school skank stage.

You cannot stop kids from enjoying their sexuality so you might as well allow them the maturity to talk with you about it openly and objectively. Whatever you forbid, they’ll do anyway. Abstinence education doesn’t work – given by the recent study saying abstinence-pledging teens get the clap just as often as those whose parents/eduactors had a grow-the-hell-up policy.

    Thanks for the giggle. I wondered when this would happen and now I know:)

    COMMENT:
    Wow! I had never thought to watch porn in the car. This is such a great multitasking opportunity in Atlanta traffic. I will go buy a DVD player for the Miata at once. Imagine what fun I’ll have when I put the top down. Woo! Woo!
