    Request: Adult forum (aka X rated TV)

    With the number of porn channels on cable plus the erotica type shows carried on HBO Canada I, for one, would welcome an adult forum.

    Anyone else interested in discussing the business of adult tv in Canada?

    There is no need for such a forum, this board is fine the way it is, no need to degrade the quality of this fine message board. There are plenty of 'adult' forums out there if you are interested in discussion such content. Also, if there was any interest in this the mods would have already created such a forum.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't people who are interested in adult programming more interested in watching it than sitting around talking about it?! ;)

    Why would having a discussion that was professional or even akin to academic degrage this site? Thie forum discusses all types of tv in Canada - there's even a kids tv forum - does that forum make this site "childish" in your view?

    There are plenty of 'adult' forums out there if you are interested in discussion such content.
    Half truth designed to misrepresent my request. This forum I am requesting is to discuss the adult tv business in Canada. There are no forums like this (on Digital Home's forums for example). Adult tv is big business in this country - even the parent company of major stations like CHCH are pornographers.

    Also, if there was any interest in this the mods would have already created such a forum.
    Incorrect. Just a few posts down there's a request for a retro tv forum - and now there is one. Even site mod Tripster was disappointed that MC doesn't carry all the adult content that TMN does
    - this would be the perfect forum to discuss issues like this and perhaps find solutions.

    Aren't people who are interested in tv perfer watching it instead of talking about it on a message board? If so then there shouldn't be any posts on this site.

    Any discussion on a topic like this should just go into the Mix Bag forum.

    Apples to oranges, you can't compare mainstream television programming with pornography. Excuse my ignorance but what exactly is there to discuss- its the same programming over and over again- two people having sex?!

    To each his own I guess, if the mods were interested in adding such a forum I think the best place for it would be as a sub-forum in the Premium Channels forum.

    OK, first of all, the definition!
    Pornography or porn is the portrayal of explicit sexual subject matter for the purposes of sexual excitement and erotic satisfaction.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pornography

    What NakedGord is suggesting is a forum for Adult material, erotica television theme of all kind: nudie-cutie, seduction, educational, games, cartoons for adults, comedies, softcore, hardcore, etc.

    I'm sorry to hear that you automatically associate "adult" programming with "pornography" and "two people having sex".

    Sorry, but adult programming is not restricted to premium. OTA stations like CityTV used to air baby blue movies, and french 'V' is still airing erotica on saturday nights. SexTV The Channel was just a regular Cat 2 digital channel.
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.

    Reread his original post, he specifically mentions porn channels thus my interpretation is that he is looking for a forum to discuss porn. He also mentions it again in a reply to my first post:

    Adult tv is big business in this country - even the parent company of major stations like CHCH are pornographers.
    So tell me, am I drawing the wrong conclusion here or perhaps you have misinterpreted his intentions for this Adult forum?!

    Is it April 1st already? Seriously when I saw the title of this thread I thought it was a joke, well until I saw that it was started by NakedGord

    I can think of so many reasons why adding an adult forum to this message board is a horrible idea. Pornography offends many people, by adding an "adult" forum it gives the impression that Channel Canada / viewers.ca supports pornography. There is a reason why no other TV forum has one.

    FYI, the forum rules state that "sexually-oriented" messages are not allowed, something tells me that we will end up with alot of "sexually-oriented" messages in a forum dedicated to porn!

    And aside from NakedGord and InMontreal (who judging from CDNViewers quotes seems to support it) I don't think the forum would get many posts anyways, unless perverts happen to find it via search engines.

    NakedGord, i'm sure there are already plenty of forums out there for you to talk about porn, as CDNViewer said, adding one here will just degrade the quality of this message board.
    My views are my own and do not represent any company.

    It's nice to see that TVViewer got in a subtle underlying jab/insult at NakedGord and InMontreal there, by essentially calling them perverts. What happened to the supposid new civility that was suppose to kick in and no more insults thrown around at other members? I guess TVViewer didn't get that memo or thinks he can get away with it by sorta masking it and not calling them it directly.

    The bible thumper crowd are used to being bullies. They've done it for hundreds of years to push their agenda and TVViewer has been using the same tactics along with Fecan to push through their FFC agenda.

    There are many people out there who are polite, reasonable, respectable and who are religious however with their hateful ways of attacking others who dare disagree with them, from the Salem Witch Trials to their words in this thread, it's always the bible thumping bullies who seem to control and exploit their religions and those who dare to have a differing opinion.

    The only forum we created after we set up the current forums is the Retro TV forum because it was requested and because we felt there were enough ongoing discussions about retro TV to warrant a new forum.

    At this point, the creation of any new forum would only occur if the discussion of a subject would start to intefere with current forums or if a subject currently scattered over several forums would be best regrouped into one forum (like the Retro TV forum).

    I'd start with discussing these issues in the Mixed Bag or even the Chit Chat forums. I am confident that we can talk about the Adult TV industry without referring to those channel's actual content. It has started in this topic and I'm sure that anyone starting a new topic concerning this would keep in mind that the posts can be seen by anyone and therefore should not contain any sexually oriented matters. Any such attemp would quickly be reported by other members and deleted as it is against forum rules.
