Porn in the Mob

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Given the availabilty of ' porn ' just about everywhere from the cinema ( mostly soft porn ) to the PC and TV/DVDs ,it is surprising that porn is apparently banned in US armed services . This is about to change it seems according to the below link . Although I saw no real porn in my time is it banned in UK services ?

  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
     
  3. 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?

  4. 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.
     
  5. From the Standing Orders of a certain Naval Base in the South of England:

    In fact, I believe that pin ups are now only allowed on the inside of your personal locker.
     
  6. "Porn is essential to release pent-up manhood."

    It goes without saying.
     
  7. It also means you can have sex with someone you love without having to talk to them :p
     
  8. 6 months P7R.. Seems he is working his ticket again...
     
  9. Apparently it is due to a bad wrist injury sustained whilst at sea. ;-) :)
     
  10. I remember a bomb scare on Kent six or seven years ago. There was a suspicious black bag seen on board. Cue evacuation, bomb squad etc. Turned out to be one lads stash of porn mags. :)
     
  11. Better to be sure than sorry , could have been a blow up doll in there

    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.
     

  13. :thumright: :lol: PMSL :thumright:

  15. 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:
     
  16. Animal Farm arrr memories, one of the squadron winch weights decided to show it in the house I was sharing with 3 wrns I came out with the chicken curry wheh the blokey was .......... a chicken.

    nobody wanted any after that
     
  17. Don't I remember, many years ago, something about a government minister called Barbara Castle going to Bangkok?
    ;-)
     
  18. 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.
     
  19. 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)
     
  20. What can be said about a navy that doesn't even have the decency to put doors on the shithouses!
