  • Adult material

    Ive heard from several people in various positions and of differing ages that its not exactly a secret that ships that are full of males have some adult material going around...

    Yet my company say it is forbidden to have it on the ship... Not being daft but i would like to take some for such a long trip - what do you reckon? and whats your experiences?

    Do most people keep it on HDDs?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just take an external HDD - keep it legal for the UK and be aware that some places have very strange laws about it (the UAE for example) so think twice about flying into places like that with anything dodgy, it is normally fine though, I have heard about 'random' checks, but it is very rare I would say.
    Also think about taking some normal movies with you, if you are going to a box boat or something with minimal social life it can get quite boring!

      As safety precautions you should rename files to unsuspecting names, try and password protect folders/files or even resort to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPpo3tsx3e4 , that may only an IT buff will detect you if an unlikely search did happen

          In my experience it was either the Chief Mate or senior motorman that had it....

            In the dark days before DVDs there always used to be a stash of grotty magazines in a drawer in the cadets' cabin.

              thanks for the advice, good idea regarding hiding the file, i will do so on a HDD.

              Ive not got anything 'dodgy' just your usual American Vivid Pictures style stuff.

              Guess its best to carry HDD in hand luggage?

                An AB once offered to put some "movies" on my hard drive. I wish he hadn't, it was some truly disturbed stuff.

                    That was part of the point of this thread...is it worth the risk and what countries?

                      After about a week of being onboard a ship as a young'ish cadet i was asked if i had any. My external hard drive was whipped around the ship at the speed of sound with each crew member asking me for it. But it works both ways. But my HD is full of films, tv series and music too, i'm not that bad
                      my only wish is that i die real.

                        I didn't have "naughty" things on my hard-drive, although I did spend a lot of time fixing others hard-drives and computers and my general payment for such services was "whatever you've got on your hard-drive" so now mine is stock full of movies and TV shows...
