HOWTO surf adult material online safely

March 13, 2006 – 7:44 pm

Violet Blue has posted an extensive tutorial on surfing web porn safely. It’s full of pragmatic tips on how to avoid popups, virii, and bad link hygeine, and includes helpful privacy pointers, too. Snip (links mine):

I list the bad things that porn (and travel and pharmaceutical) sites do, things you can do to avoid them, how to clean up your computer when you’re done, and I offer basic tips on foiling stalkers and sites that cache your history. Not to mention basics, like not using your real name in fetish forums and marking your Amazon wishlist as private, should you decide to stash some sexy books for later that you don’t want *just anyone* to see.

On top of all that, I suggest a handful of ethical porn link sites (like Fleshbot) and give practical advice for parents who’d rather not trust their kids’ surfing to ethically questionable censorware (for instance, Secure Computing’s “SmartFilter” has the awesome teen advice site in the same category classification as “escort services”, which should turn anyone’s stomach).

It’s written from the POV of a porn-lovin’ girl — me. I’ve been working on it all weekend and I hope it makes wanking online better for all of us; finding good porn is difficult enough as it is. It’s a work in progress that I’m inviting everyone to contribute to, in the spirit of Tiny Nibbles’ open source sex mission.
