    I'm guessing the suggestion was based on some algorithm of previous purchases for dad? In which case you have prudes who's panties are on too tight about a particular subject matter.

    To be vaguely serious, I think that there are two associated problems here. The first is that Amazon UK seems to have banned all porn from its site. This leaves those who wish to sell such products with no legitimate place to sell their wares. The second problem, caused by the first, is that Amazon UK's search filters aren't effective, leading to people who should probably not be viewing such titles being exposed to them. Since I doubt that Amazon UK can entirely keep porn off of their site, it makes sense to allow porn and ensure, as much as possible, that it remains walled off from inappropriate eyes.

    Not an issue if you don't shop on Amazon. I haven't had one of those smiling boxes at my front door in over 5 years.

    First of all, Amazon is not the only legitimate sales place on earth. Second, UK has gone crazy with banning pornography and sidearms. It's a sick country.

    It's more of what they are attached to. And who else might be attached to who they are attached to. :confused:

    I would be mad if my kid bought porn. It's free all over the place and he paid for it? What kind of idiot does that?

    Ah not the worst thing that has happened. Not to long ago I was thinking of buying something. I did not look it up on any device, it was just a thought and what do you know there is an amazon add for that thing I was thinking of buying.

    Been spooked ever since and I don't fuck with Amazon algorithms unless the brain was off all day.

    Your premise is faulty. It's not that guns are safer than tits, it's that most men do not act responsibly around tits. Civic, workplace and transportation safety would all be enhanced if we acted in a safe and respectful manner when in the presence of breasts.

    We need to start treating breasts with the same respect that we treat guns! If you were driving down the highway would you daydream about putting a loaded gun in your mouth? Of course you wouldn't! Running your tongue around the end of the barrel while lightly pinching the front sight? No! Think about holding a pair of nine's together with your open palms while you thrust Mr. Happy between the pistol grips? Of course ... not, necessarily, although this is America, but you wouldn't think about doing it while you were driving on the highway, except maybe in LA.

    This is why I advocate Breast Safety Classes in our American education system, to be started in grade school when our youth are just noticing that their best friend, Heather, is changing in a curious way. If we nip this in the bud, we can build a better society, a society that ... upholds breasts ... [something here about dignity] ... And I had to tell a friend once that breasts are not binoculars, you can't just grab them and hold them up to your eyes, but even after telling him that I realized I had to try it, and I know that this has nothing to do with breast safety classes, but it was on my mind and you can get away with it if you blink your eyes over her nipples and ask her if she can feel your eyelashes.

    Seriously, though, tits are not guns.



    P.S. I am somewhere between hating myself for acting misogynist, and just rubbing one out.

    Mistakes like this have been happening since the internet became "The Internet." What annoys me is I've never run into them...I only read about them after the fact :(.

    If children are traumatized by this they aren't being raised very well. Tell 'em some people like this some don't if you accidently see it go somewhere else. If they are curious it's probably time for some basic sex ed.

    What the literal fuck am I reading here? Did Amazon put you up to this?

    P.S. I don't treat guns with respect they are inanimate objects. Them Tit's bounce on their own though and I think to my self how the fuck are those two melons bouncing up and down? Are they braking the laws of physics? I don't see that they are attached to anyone, then I'm all like oh yeah must be attached to a woman with a push up bra on. It all makes sense now. That takes about 1/2 second of processing every time I see nice knockers, not toooooooo big of a deal.

    Don’t be too hard on them. It’s the thought that counts.

    I don't get why Amazon.co.uk has issues selling porn. Sure you can sell dildos, fleshlights and casks of anal lube, but porn is bad!

    Completely moronic.

    I seem to recall the UK is trying to crack down on internet porn so maybe it's just easier to go along with the idiot prudes?

    This is isolated to the UK store. The UK has been going all Victorian Era on porn in the past few years.

    I've heard tell that married dads get this sort of stuff from their wives as well.

    Of course women hate sexual intercourse and hate creative sexual intercourse even more, so that's just fake news.

    Oh well, its not like the internet wasn't made to share porn, er... enable and facilitate um... communications.

    Not sure there was a single kid out there that was permanently damaged by checking out his dad's playboy magazines back in the day.

    Paying for porn is Stupid.

    Paying for porn from Amazon means everything else is blocked, pretty much.

    Pinching you finger in a reloading press means you don't need one, you're too stupid to shoot weapons responsibly. Most folks cure that by double loading a pistol round, so it evens out.

    If you equate tits and guns, society has wronged you, and you probably think Mike Pence is a guy you want to hang out with.

    If you can handle a guys guns without permission, he's probably cool with you handling his wife's tits without permission. Meaning, you're getting your ass kicked.

    If you think porn is a scourge of society, you haven't watched the news lately.

    Kyle, I, too hate Chodaboys hat. :)

    For the rest of you, look up choda, it's probably your thing. :)

    "How did I miss those?"

    Nobody ever gets my jokes... :(

    A hint; Chodaboys hatpiece is not a Choda.
