RustyJ (145) I had to choose other. I don't really hide anything but it's not in sight to visitors either. Maybe if I had Disney's, they'd be next to each other. But no, not from wife and there are no kids to worry about either. To be honest, I have maybe less than dozen physical copies of any porn left, some DVD's and blurays only.

Jay G (67) When I went digital I tossed the magazines,dvd's and, yes, the old videotapes. It was like leaving old friends, but it was time to move on...and much more convenient.

otoh (54) I chose other. All my porn as such is digital, and kept on an external drive; it's not hidden as such, but neither is it labelled PORN.

I've also got a collection of racy books - nude photography of varying explicitness - which I started with before online porn. The milder, pinup ones are fairly openly stacked on a shelf; the more explicit are more subtly hidden in a cupboard, out of the way of eyes that might be shocked by it :)

messmer (137) I don't know what category password protected external hard drives, sitting next to my computer, would be under, but that's where all my porn is situated. Not hidden, but not available to anyone else either thanks to True Crypt. I guess I will have to vote "other."

I would argue that having it password encrypted makes it hidden, as you'd have to know the password to see it.

Cybertoad (Disabled) Mine is hidden, for the only reason is we share printers on our home network and even some account information. I do so do not want this accidentally being seen by the wrong people.

jberryl69 (Disabled) For the most part, it's all digital and not very well hidden from someone who knows their way around a PC. I do have some DVD's I've edited for viewing on my big screen and they just sit next to my DVD player, though if my mom comes over I do stick them in a box.

It's nobody's bizness cept my own and I have no one to answer to family wise. I don't feel like flaunting it except on here but then that's why we're here so we can freely express yourself.

It's a poll, it's kinda the point to ask a question so people can have a discussion about it :)

Mine's all digital and kinda hidden. Nobody else uses the computer so it's just in an unobviously named folder somewhere. It's not so much hidden but not easy to stumble across.

Drooler (220) I keep all of mine in one room which is off limits to prying eyes. I'd hate to be asking, "Now where did I put that?" or be asked, "Hey, what's this?"

Terio (0) My digital porn it´s on my pc and cellphone. I don´t have to hide it because no underage person use them. But my magazines collection it´s practically hidded. I have more than a thousand books, so i have to put a lot on boxes. My porno end up with my National Geographic and Men´s Health magazines.If i have enought space, i will have them on the library. Nobody on my family likes to read anyway.

elephant (67) I don't hide mine and ditched all my dvds and mags, sometimes I would love to have a look at some of them old mags as they were awesome at the time but had to see bye bye to them, this was 5 years ago. Would like to also get rid of some digital porn now and get it down to just my best stuff. Probably never get around to it though.

gaypornolover (38) As a gay man I gave up on closets a long time ago!

Seriously, Other - my physical porn is in a closet, but not a locked one.

I trust my guests not to go poking around and if they do, well hey not my fault if they find something they don't like! If they do like it - well it might lead to some fun!

As for my digital stuff, it's not right on my desktop so I suppose it's "hidden" in a folder but it's not password protected or anything. The folder names also bear the name of the website!

It's my computer and only I use it, so no need to hide anything.

It might be worth pointing out that in my apartment I use a giant dildo as a door-stop, so I don't worry too much about what guests think! It's my space!

I think your argument makes a great deal of sense, hodayathink! I will change my vote accordingly.

rearadmiral (388) I chose other because what I have is a bit of a blend. First, I no longer have anything that is readily identifiable as porn and I'm glad those days are gone. One slip up, like leaving a drawer unlocked, and your secret was out. Now with external drives there is less of an issue. For me now, the issue is the sheer number of external drives that would raise suspicion (I have almost 20 external drives - not counting backups) so I keep all the externals in a locked briefcase and the backups in a locked drawer in a separate location. A friend of mine points out that when I die there will be several of my male friends vying for ownership of that briefcase.

tangub (155) All the old dvds and video tapes got thrown out years ago, all i have now is 4 external drives sat on my desk, not hidden in anyway but not obvious to visitors or anyone else what they contain.

skippy (52) The only non-digital I have could be considered collector stuff, "Oh God, She's Nude!" and similar, hidden away in a dusty box I last saw about a year ago. The best of my digital stuff, dating back more than 15 years now, is on a protected hard drive on one of 3 computers in the man cave. Older stuff and archives are on protected external drives stored away. Like any data, you can't exactly call it valuable, but it is worth backing up because it would be very expensive or impossible to replace.

Next good question: Do people have backups?

lk2fireone (196) It's on my computer. Does that mean it's hidden?

Ambition (15) My porn has become digital only. I save it to a NAS especially for porn called "Adult Entertainment", so it's pretty obvious and available within my network and on any connected device.
