Naked on the Net

Computer Graphic

Last week, the House passed a GOP-sponsored bill to bar online pornography to those under 16, a situation some found bemusing, considering that it was House Republicans who decided to post the rather salacious Starr report on the Net. Do you surf the smut?

Age: 19
Resides: Village
Occupation: Student
Have you ever seen porn online?
No, it's not one of my major interests. But sometimes I come across it accidentally. Like one time I was looking up sites on this one band and I came across a sex toy page.
Is the Starr report too graphic?
It's more humorous than pornographic. Monica and Bill just look like bumbling idiots.
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
Yeah. I don't have anything against it. It doesn't stimulate one sexually.

Occupation:: Student/Promoter
Have you ever seen porn online?
No, I've got a girlfriend for that.
Is the Starr report too graphic?
Yeah. Starr's a pervert. He's all like, "Did you feel her breasts?" He was getting off on that!
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
No. I mean, there's so much violence with youth out there and they get to see violent cartoons and movies.

Occupation:: Student/Butcher
Have you ever seen porn online?
I go online all the time, but I can never seem to get into those porn sites because they want to charge me. I always get these e-mails advertising these sites and when I go you just see this tantalizing picture but you can't get in!
Is the Starr report too graphic?
It's a real invasion of privacy. It's so sad that they're tearing into this poor guy.
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
Not really. Most children wouldn't understand it.

Occupation:: Waiter/Artist
Have you ever seen porn online?
Yeah. I saw that Pamela Lee video online.
Is the Starr report too graphic?
I don't think so. I haven't really followed it that closely but none of it is sexually offensive.
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
It should be up to the parents.

Teresa Meadlws

Resides: Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn
Occupation:: Student
Have you ever seen porn online?
No. But when I first got my computer I got a lot of porn e-mails. I'm glad I got it first instead of my daughter. She's 11. I set it up so that it screens out all that stuff now.
Is the Starr report too graphic?
Yes. It's too detailed. We don't need to know that much. We have imaginations.
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
That's a tough one. I'm not ready to explain certain things to my daughter yet. About marriage and cheating and certain sexual things. She hasn't asked me yet, but if the president gets impeached then I'll explain everything to her.

Occupation:: Actor
Have you ever seen porn online?
I get a lot of those e-mails advertising it. It's like junk mail. I just go online to check out casting calls and things like that.
Is the Starr report too graphic?
Is the Starr report too graphic? I know Ken Starr. I used to have an office in Georgetown. The report is like reading Penthouse Forum.
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
No. What is a five-year-old going to understand about a blowjob?

Resides: North Bronx
Occupation:: Engineer
Have you ever seen porn online?
Yeah. Someone was showing it to me and a few other times I came across it by accident. One time I was checking my e-mail at hotmail.com, but I accidentally typed in hotmale.com and I got this porn site.
Is the Starr report too graphic?
Not really. I couldn't read too much of it, though. It was boring.
Should kids be allowed to see the report?
Sure. It's a legal document, isn't it?
