    I'm not sure where I stand with this. Sure, lots of exposure for small kids is not good. Catching a glimpse/a one time incident (if that was what it was -I don't know) will likely cause few problems. I mean, at five you barely know what you're watching and at eight you've probably already seen a hundred or so dead or dying people on screen... It doesn't have to be a problem I guess is what I'm trying to say. The scary part of it, the way I see it, is what this, in the bigger picture says about your ex and him having the kids. The "stash" is usually something you hide away, like far, far away (I know guys with their own apartment where they live alone, and still the "stash" is stowed away in the darkest part of their basement, behind the old washingmachine and under a pile of rugs. True story) and I can't help but think about what other things might be lying around. I obviously don't know anywhere near enough about the situation and probably the bigger picture is in your concern as well, Kalle, but I really don't think a one time exposure will have any major effects on your kids... If, however, this incident can be used as leverage against a not so perfect childcarer, swell.

    As for porn, wow, what a tricky subject. It's a bit like the drug business, in the way that for a lot of people, the overwhelming majority of people, drugs and porn are no problem. They can enjoy it without misusing or losing control of it it. But then there's all the sorts of things that comes in the wake. Like the little people involved. Sure, for the Silicone Valley hotshots the pay is good and they are probably living a decent life, just as your local, comfortable weed-dealer is, but what happens before you get to that point, in the washed out, poor provences where the nasty shit goes down?

    There are of course many facets, so incredibly many more than I can get my head around, but I think it's a troubling business. Prostitution too works well in some places, with safe environments for the workers and decent pay, with people choosing it as their job, but the problem about supporting places like that is that you're supporting a business where so many other problems reside, and that one brilliant shimmering of a place serves to numb people towards the less shiny side.This is of course the problem of most businesses, but I really think that porn has a side that's darker than most.

    Another "note" is of course that rates of rapes and reported sexual agressive acts against women are pretty neatly aligned with porn consumption. Of course it's only correlational, but the numbers are quite clear.

    So umm, I'm with Buck I think, because I actually don't think it's all bad, but there are issues to consider, ehrm. Yeah.

    or like the scrambled channels that you were pretty sure had porn but you would never know for sure because you could never get a clear picture of what was going on. or maybe that was just me
    May you have warm words on a cold evening,
    A full moon on a dark night,
    And the road downhill all the way to your door.
