back to article An early iPad adopter? You smut-ogling filth-gobbling perv!

Seems that people who fell for the fondleslab early like to fondle more in general. Early adopters of tablets are more likely to watch porn than those currently without a tablet, suggests new research. A 156-page report into the subject of the mobile porn industry by Juniper Research, published today, has suggested that …

    Shock finding!

    It's usually single people who don't have lots of serious personal commitments, lots of free time and more expendable income than those with family commitments, that buy the latest bleeding-edge techno-gadgets!

    Where's my huge grant to state the bleeding obvious?!

      I think you've just proven that you don't deserve one. You might want to brush up on your 'stating the bloody obvious' skills, you seem to be quite rusty.

    After all, the screen is much easier to wipe than a keyboard...

      and it's got to be more comfortable watching porn on a tablet than on a Laptop for obvious reasons!

    Porn and the Pad

    "The first iPad-optimised adult entertainment sites were even launched before the iPad reached the hands of consumers."

    Hands that shook in excitement upon receiving said Pad. Hands that caressed and fondled with care their newly found slab. Hands that found unlimited, unhealthy doses of Pron, all within a hands reach.

    The problem lay within the fact that it requires 2 hands to hold the damned thing.....bwahhh ha ha

        Don't assume you need to use your finger to control the iPad

      If you are struggling to hold your iPad in only one hand, I suggest a course of vigorous wrist exercises. I believe these can be easily found online...

      Or, to put it another way: What's the internet for? (I guess that's NSFW)

      After a week's use in the hands of a practising pr0nophile that's probably not a problem any more.

      It should be bluetack-like enough to just stick to any surface; et voila, handsfree!

      Re: 2 hands

      There are these, eh, widgets that can stick, plunger-like, to a smooth flat surface such as the back of a fondleslab. They can be had in various sizes and colours; it makes sense that the optimal dimensions depend on the size of your hand. With one of these attached to your tabled you can hold it, like a mortarboard, and have the other free to perform those stroking gestures associated with viewing images.

    ... maybe that used tablet isn't such a good idea after all.

    156 page report???

    Really, a report on Internet porn needed 156 pages? How does anyone write a report on Internet porn that long, even when it's talking about the blessed iPad? Were there 150 pages of pictures?

    1. Don Jefe

      Re: 156 page report???

      Well. There was a cover. One blank page following the cover. One page saying the preceding page was intentionally left blank. One page with the revision log. One page of corporate sponsorship disclosures. Two pages for the table of contents. One page for the intended audience summation.One page for the executive summary. Two pages of actual content. The rest was filled with charts and graphs PROVING the two pages of actual content are stunningly correct and the glossary explaining what all the made up terms mean.

    At least in my experience

    Early adopters tend to be nerds. Nerds tend to watch porn. Duh.

    Gidgets or gadgets?

    Were the 'researchers' sure the subjects understood the question?

    Being early adopters, they might have thought the question referred to Unboxing Porn.

    ...anyone who was an early adopter of the interwebs is also a mucky pervert since the interwebs is a delivery vehicle for smut.

    What a load of childish illogical crap and non-sequitors.

    Someone, please tell Ms Leach that she obviously isn't cut out for a career in proper journalism (except maybe with the Sun, or Desmond's Daily Star), and terminate what I assume to be her work experience placement with El Reg...

      Most of us who were early (consumer) users of the internet quickly found out that it was indeed a fabulous resource of free grumble. And it has improved over time. Bigger, better resolution pics, increasingly every fetish catered for, there's even a few vids that don't look like Lego stop motion.

      So stop complaining, get your box of tissues out*, and go do some research.

    iPads mostly bought by wankers...

    Finally, my assumption has some scientific validity.

    I remember when scanners first became popular. A certain type of image was almost always the first thing scanned by most owners, and that included the girls (although girls weren't encouraged into IT in those days) </sarcasm>

    At least there's no way of you being exposed to the whole world as a pervert with things like auto-signatures...

    At least tablets are bigger than mobile phones and less likely to be damaged when they drop into the toilet...

    Suitable gesture

    I'm sure there will be a patent submitted by Apple. The patent will describe 2 functions.

    1. How a certain vigourous gesture will load a configurable website.

    2. How wiping the screen will clear your history
