Amazon UK is under fire for listing hardcore pornography among the top results of the "Dad Gifts" category. While the listing has since been taken down, Google managed to cache it beforehand, and I can confirm the listing featured explicit language and censored imagery on the product page. Needless to say, there's quite a bit of outrage on social media.

After The Sun contacted Amazon about the DVD, it removed the title from its website - but other porn films are still listed online. And we found that when you search for "porn film" on Amazon, explicit DVDs come up even when Amazon states it has excluded "adult items" from the results. Amazon UK says that sellers are "not permitted" to sell any type of pornography on its website - but thousands of pornography items are available to buy.

Unfortunately, there were no user reviews of the film when Google cached the page.

is this an amazon uk thing only? porn is everywhere on the US amazon site lol. personally i just want them to combat fake products and fake reviews and have "good filters". if someone wants to buy something legal in their country go ahead.

The point isn’t that porn is good or bad, it’s that anyone shopping for their dad will see results like this, which isn’t okay. These results should only pop up if you’re specifically looking for them.

My beef with it is that amazon is trying to stuff me full of chinese knock off porn. Maybe if people didn't have a search history covered in porn searches, maybe the algorithm wouldn't 'help them'.

So it’s okay if you break the rules, but not others? I’m not sure why you’re acting this way. My post wasn’t attacking anyone, but you feel perfectly fine being a jerk for no reason.

What does God need with a starship?

Seriously though, when you hang out at someone's house and they say you can't drink the expensive beer, does that mean they can't drink it either.

Kyle is a jerk that owns the site so he has some leeway.

I'm sorry but porn is SUPPOSED to make things pop up....

I couldn't NOT say it someone had to.
Well TBH as much as I hate political correctness, I can see how this could bring up embarrassing moments for children looking for a fathers day gift. Of course where I live, the whole family goes to sauna naked regularly (at the same time, mind you) so nipples or other body parts don't come as actual surprises lol.

I know I can’t win. I just don’t know where the hostility came from.



I understand that.

Your skin might be just a tad thin for this crew.

I ate a ban a little bit ago - for doing EXACTLY what Kyle just said not to do. I don't hold it against him. I threw that voodoo doll away hours ago. No no. No.

But dude, it's his house. Benefits to being the bartender.

Remember everyone, tits are dangerous but guns and violence are O K.

Let's be honest here. How many of you have got in trouble or been hurt over some tits? I know I have.

I've been around guns all my life. Other than pinching the crap out of my finger with a reloader press, no gun related injury.

I'm pretty sure tits ARE much more dangerous than guns!

Do tell, how did tits hurt you? They're pretty soft and comfy things after all.

If tits are handled like guns you will be fine. Make sure it isn't loaded and pointed in a safe direction. Also make sure you have permission to handle them/it. Grabbing someone else's gun is dangerous as is grabbing someone else's tits.

Who is the son, or daughter, buying porn for their fathers or grandfathers?

Bingo. You can touch your friend's guns. But you can't touch your friend's wife's tits.

As a Canadian, could someone give me some insight here? When I think of the US, I think of personal liberty. Guns good (makes sense), sex bad (wtf)? Makes no sense to me.

edit for clarification

Be aware the story was about Amazon UK. That's where your Queen is from.

I learned that from Kids in the Hall.

I blame all those filthy, filthy ice-ed creame soda shops, and that rocking roll, and those sock hops all the youths seems to frequent.

If it weren't for any that then Amazon would be a good upstanding corporate citizen like that nice boy Erik Pricne's company Academi.
