graymane (31) Depends on the risks I'd be taking.
If the workplace didn't monitor nor enforce the policy too strictly , I'd then watch nudity as I saw fit. If they were tight with the rules, I'd still watch but be descreet and more careful not to get caught.
Overall, though, I think its a good idea despite what I do.

Monahan (42) Not sure why it should be permitted at all. It's distracting at best and kills productivity at worst.

If you work in a government agency, however, it may be a good thing. Bureaucrats can't fuck things up if they are watching porn instead of spending money or raising taxes.

Capn (28) It would be a distraction, so best avoided.

Wittyguy (95) I'm not interested in going out somewhere and seeing someone sitting at the table next to be streaming porn on their cell phone (I'm just waiting for the day). Why should someone be subjected to it at work then, especially if they don't approve of porn. Part of life is adopting social norms and if you can't live without porn for a few hours then you're best sticking with a home office.

Allow me to better qualify this question more accurately by saying the porn-watching would have to be at times when there's absolutely no chance of somebody else being aware.

I once saw a guy on a plane reading a Hustler, and he wasn't trying to hide it. I can sort of understand Playboy, as it actually used to be funny sometimes, but Hustler in an aisle seat? I'm sure if you looked carefully you could catch someone looking at porn on their iPad or something.

slutty (111) The company is paying for the network and bandwidth, so they can do whatever they want I suppose. Unless you work in certain industries, I don't think allowing people to look at porn on their computers during business hours is a great idea - especially in a cubicle environment!

Although some companies take it a bit far, mine blocks ESPN, the Onion, and many other not-so-offensive sites, even during lunch!

lk2fireone (194) The company sets the rules. You break that rule, you could get fired.

I supervise quite a few ppl at my work and obvious I am a porn member. But personal life is personal life.
You bring porn, your dog or you pot plant to work it not allowed. We pay the employee for work not to fondle their junk with one hand and handle a mouse with the other at my office :)

pat362 (369) I think that it's an excellent idea and I also have no problem if the company wants to limit access to certain site for whatever reason they want. It's their property and they can do what they like with it.

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #6 - slutty :

Have you ever checked the link on my signature? Secondhand smut is apparently a growing problem (insert erection joke here). Though I don't if people will be in the mood to check out a Hustler after experiencing one of the new fingerbangin' TSA security pat downs. : - O

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #5 - graymane :

Then it can't be done on a company computer, or probably even on company property--using your own laptop you would likely still rely on their Internet connection.

I think it's a good rule of thumb to be overly paranoid anytime your on a public computer or using a computer in a public area. Yes, even in the privacy of your own office/cubicle/wherever you should assume something or someone is tracking your browser history and therefore your at-work porn appetite.

The intention is sound; people are at work to work, not goof off on 'tube sites or take care of their morning wood. Save for a few jobs your work probably doesn't involve going through porn videos or pics and it's best such activities remain at home.

yeah I saw that, pretty funny. and you never know, the pat down might put some folks in the mood for porn.

a friend of mine swears he saw porn playing on the TV of some SUV in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Doggone well said, Turbo. One certainly couldn't argue the merits of anything about that anology. The combinations even turned around my thinking on the matter.

Lionheart (47) At work I give 100%, that just the way I was raised. I hate when people slack off when on the clock. Now don't get me wrong I enjoy my time off just as like everyone. So something like looking at nudity would be a distraction.

RustyJ (145) I haven't heard of such rules. Web filters are ok if they don't block necessary stuff. I don't really need nudity at workplace anyway.

rearadmiral (328) I'll admit that my position is untenable and would be completely rejected by the soccer moms (of both genders), but I think that distractions during work should be prohibited. During a lunch break if Jane wants to do some online gambling and Jim wants to look at some porn with his office door closed, so what?

I remember about 10 years ago a senior officer in the Canadian Navy had his career killed after it was revealed that while staying in a private room in an officer's quarters on a base he plugged in his own laptop to the network at looked at (gasp!) Maxim. The bureaucracy hung him out to dry. To their credit, most civilians came out in support of the guy.

If no one else can see what you're looking at and you're on a break, I don't support the fear of sexuality.

Now if you happen to be having a wank while looking at that porn, that might be a little different...

mbaya (356) I take work very seriously. Porn is to be enjoyed in a private setting.

pornwatcher (3) As much as I love porn, I think nudity on company computers is a very bad idea. It is very distracting and open the potential of sexual harassment. Not to mention the distraction. I think anything that could distract you from work, be it porn or video games, should not be allowed in the workplace.

BadMrFrosty (56) I agree that porn does not belong in the workplace but find nothing wrong with having porn on my company laptop which I also use at home.
