What is the Proper Etiquette for iPod Porn?
So I am sitting on a flight from San Francisco to Syracuse, New York, beside a guy who seems pleasant enough. He moves his bag so I can sit down. He doesn't use my arm rest. He allows me to look out of the window. He apologizes profusely when he has to get up and use the bathroom, which thankfully is only once during the flight.

But he also inhales three Bloody Marys and watches porn on his video iPod.

What should one do? Ask the drunk to stop? He was turning the iPod so I couldn't see it, but it reflected off the window at one point and I very clearly saw what it was.

Whath do you think?

I can't imagine that he had a wife, but I would be so embarrassed to know that that was my dad or husband!!! Ugghh!!! NO class!!

If I had been alone, I probably wouldn't have had the courage to ask that. But if I had been with someone, I would have asked him to stop. Clearly he's an addict. Who can't go a few hours on a plane without sex? Geeze.

Ick.

I agree with smarty - must be an addict.
Plus what's the point of watching porn (I assume) if you're not in a position to ahem, take advantage (is that what I want to say
?) of 'enjoying' it? Very awkward.

Point being, he's totally an addict since he's obviously 'physically' desensitized to that which should arouse him.

Poor bastard.

I probably wouldn't have the guts to say anything. Nose in a book? Eyes closed and music turned up? (you did have your own ipod, right?) Window shade down to get rid of the reflection?
I guess I feel like what he does with his ipod is his business, so long as he's being reasonably discreet.

Some of these comments are very judgemental. I think that as women it is impossible to understand just how addictive porn actually is. If you want some idea, read the book "Every Man's Battle", written by Christian men who have overcome porn addictions (which they had WHILE they were already Christians). I know a beautiful, spirit-filled Christian man who has been addicted to porn for 13 years - since he accidentally came across it when he was 12 years old. He has been trying hard to get free, even putting parenting control on the computer. He hates it, but it IS an addiction. When porn is looked at, a chemical is released in the brain - this is what makes porn so addictive It is actually in many ways a substance addiction, and like other substances, you need 'fixes' and it eventually starts destroying the brain. This means that even if spiritual bondages to porn are cut off, there is still an addiction that needs to be overcome - same os smoking or heroin.

I am not condoning this man's actions - I think his actions were very unsensitve. That is no reason, however, to condemn to think of him as someone who couldn't possibly have a wife (many, many married men struggle with this, and the church is just as bad as the world, if not worse - it is just more hidden), or as a "poor bastard".

Sorry if I come off as judgemental or condemning - it is not what I meant to do. Just realise that he is a man, and even though watching it so blatently is unusual, there are many men who are just as addicted to porn as he is, and they need our undersanding and support and prayers to get free and healed.
