Auto-Erotica

Last night on the way to dinner with my family we were driving along when I noticed that the SUV ahead of me was watching TV on a little in car screen. I commented out loud that they were, just because I’m a chatty person, because my family already knows that I think too much TV is watched by kids as they sit at home on their butts. We pulled to a stop at a light behind them and I turned to answer something to my daughter when my husband said “Well I don’t think it’s the kids watching that TV”.

I looked up and stopped at the light ahead of us was the SUV with some incredibly graphic porn playing on the screen clearly visible through their back window. My parents, who are in town visiting laughed, my husband laughed and then I laughed too but only because the seat in front of my daughter blocked the up close and personal penetration scene that played out on the screen ahead.

I have to say, that screen was pretty good quality, but really, why the hell do you need to go rolling with your friends watching porn at 6:30 on a Sunday night? My kid couldn’t see into that car, but someone else’s could have. Don’t get me wrong I would have been just as, if not more, offended at the thought of my child, or any child, watching a grisly scene of violence.

But as parents it is our job to protect our children from things we find inappropriate (even if they shouldn’t be set out for all to see in the first place).

So ignoring my mother hen instincts I have this question; In a time we are already fighting to keep people off their cell phones and PDAs as they drive is their really ever a good time to watch porn while you drive? Isn’t that maybe just a little distracting?

    That would explain why so many drivers drive like complete jack-offs.

    Back in the day when dinosaurs were walking there was a city/state rule that said that you could have a TV in the “car” but the screen had to be off when the car was moving it was called “distracted driver” and I think it’s still on the books but no one will inforce it.

    Did Jackie Chan’s demise in the first Cannonball Run picture teach us nothing as a society!?!

    What is inappropriate about porn for children? They are going to discover it eventually anyway. Might as well present it to them in a mature fashion in the back of an SUV…
