Porn in the Mob

#2
errrr im not too sure but i remember a while back I saw in The Sun newspaper that forces were to be banned from pinning any explicit material on the walls on base, bunk wall etc etc....im not too sure if this still stands but i remember that the girls from page 3 had a campaign to get this rule removed

I might be wrong lol

Following the infamous XXX-ex-Porno-Plod-became-a-Padre-then-got-homesick-and-claimed-he-was-exposed-to-shocking-levels-of-onboard-prawnography case.... the MOD have sadly announced that prawn is banned...

However to fair to the poor man, he does seem to be suffering persecution in his new job. Perhaps he should return to the Police Vice Unit he served in before taking the cloth?

Sounds very much like a case of someone who cannot handle service life using discrimination as an excuse to escape, somewhat reminiscent of the LEUT Wheat affair in HMAS Swan in 1989. If this bloke did not like porn films he could have retired to his cabin.

I saw pornography of all descriptions while in the mob. Magazines, movies, live exhibitions - you name it. By the mid 1980s it was being banned due to the increased presence of women at sea and some complaints made by the more sensitive types. In submarines these directives were largely ignored until we could no longer escape the scrutiny of the fleet welfare and morals police in the early 90s. After that it was still around, just not as openly.

From the Standing Orders of a certain Naval Base in the South of England:

1. Despite the increasingly liberal attitude of civilian society towards pornography a naval establishment is no place for unbridled licence. The importation of pornographic material to the United Kingdom is an offence under civil law. The following rules for possession of pornographic material apply:

a. Magazines. No obscene magazines are to be brought on board. Possession of such magazines on board is prohibited. As a guide, magazines more extreme than those on general sale to the public in the UK will be considered obscene.

b. Films, Video Tapes and Digital Versatile Discsâ€. The possession or showing of “Blue Movies†on board is prohibited. Only films/videos/DVDs that have been cleared by the British Board of Film Censors may be shown.

c. Pin Ups. Picture boards are provided in messes. The pictures on these boards are to be selected bearing in mind the likelihood of civilian cleaners entering the messes on a regular basis. Nothing is to be openly exhibited which might give offence to members of the ship’s company, spouses, friends, families of mess members or civilians conducting cleaning or maintenance duties. In particular, no pin up is to be posted which depicts an overt display of genitalia.

d. Computer Media. Possession of pornographic computer equipment (disks, cartridges, CD’s etc) is prohibited.
In fact, I believe that pin ups are now only allowed on the inside of your personal locker.

So cracking one of seven times a day to relieve the boredom is now officially frown upon?

The best Porn stash I ever came across belonged to a gay flag waver, it was boy on girl stuff, good hardcore porn, he'd get off looking at the blokes and everyone else would borrow it and crack one off looking at the girls. Mind you watching animal farm whilst bobbing up and down in the Med can put you off a fried chicken dinner.

I have seen a number of adult magazines on sale in various PX/BX shops, the magazines were always sealed in plastic foil.

As for being banned in HMF, my experience in Germany is that porn is readily available here and always has been. I can still remember a return flight from Decimomannu (Sardinia) in a VC 10 about 30 years ago. On landing at Brüggen an RAF policeman in civvies (SIB) boarded the aircraft and announced that he believed that we had porn on board. Shock, horror, how could that be? Of course there was no porn on board,

we'd hidden it on the Herc with the engine spares. :whew: ^_^;

Porn is banned onboard all HM vessels. On our boat, the XO has even stated that you cant have pin ups inside locker doors, and there are to be no lewd or provocative pictures of your missus on your bunk board, even if she isnt bothered that other people may see them. Apparently someone may take offence at them, so a blanket ban is in force. I may as well castrate myself in case I get a semi hard on in the mess watching Bridget Jones Diary and someone notices and takes offence. FFS its bad enough doing 4 months underwater without the pc brigade getting involved! :censored:

As a First Lt its my job to be the arbitrator of good taste and vigorous testing is a must! Porn is not a problem as long as people are sensible.

It was ever thus. Egyptian AFO's were frowned upon by Methodist and other god-fearing skippers.
Putting ones cokc up her wet cnut appeared not to go down well in most captain's day cabins (Or so they said)

What can be said about a navy that doesn't even have the decency to put doors on the shithouses!
