All the scientific studies still show that when porn is accessible that sex crimes go down not up.  I'd rather keep the pervs having fun at their computers that raping women in real life.

So much oppression in our culture is based on shame about sex: the oppression of women, of cultural minorities, oppression in the name of the (presumably asexual) family, oppression of sexual minorities. We are all oppressed. We have all been taught, one way or another, that our desires, our bodies, our sexualities, are shameful. What better way to defeat oppression than to get together in communities and celebrate the wonders of sex?

A friend told me about this proxy service:

anonnymouse.org

It seems to work pretty well.

I've got a question... Is 'anonymous' surfing truly necessary? I'm not online much outside of doing very vanilla research for something I'm writing. I rarely, if ever, go to adult/porn/fantasy sites, only use the yahoo messenger/email with family/publishers. This site is the first I've ever wanted to become more familiar with.

After reading all your posts, which were truly remarkable, btw, you people know your shit, I cringe at the thought of messing with proxies. The ones I've tried in the past didn't work with myspace where I keep up with what's happening with family, etc. and got totally blocked at a private site that I'm participating in for research for an upcoming story. And the lag time truly sucked! I know enough about how the web works to figure out most general problems but no where near enough to be dangerous. I loathe the thought of messing with it.

So do I really need to be anonymous?

Probably not.  Even in the UK my bet is they are looking for those that download stuff.

But really it all depends on your comfort zone and how much you trust your government.

Lilybeth, I just checked your location (one of the EXCELLENT reasons to use a proxy: hide your 'location-by-IP' Wink ) and you don't need to worry about the government THERE unless you're under age, and fer Christ's sake, you're 18 or over, RIGHT?!?

You're absolutely correct, the lag time can be anywhere from minimal to excruciating.  If it's bothersome, I use a different proxy.

Another reason to use a proxy particularly with sites like ours is if other people can access your computer.  I've scared the shit out of 4 gals by mentioning some of my fantasy PLAY ideas, even though I only want to PLAY (i.e. consensual 'rape fantasy').  If you have vanilla roommates, they might freak at a site like this in your cache, MRU list, etc.  Tracks exist all over the place once you go surfing, and merely clearing the cache won't eliminate all of the traces.  However, using a 'secure' (HTTPS) highly-anonymous proxy means that nothing incriminating winds up anywhere on the computer - no browser that I know of keeps HTTPS pages in the cache, and the URLs are stealthed by the proxy so the MRUs won't show anything, either.

MRU = Most Recently Used, like the last 100 or so URLs you've typed, pages you've accessed or search terms.  Windows keeps a ridiculously large number of different types of MRUs as well as a HISTORY that doesn't get wiped when you clear the IE cache.

If any of that makes a difference to you (someone finding 'rape play' stuff on your PC) then yeah, I'd use a proxy.  The only way anyone is ever gonna find it on MY computer is with a court warrant, and I have enough stuff on harddrives that it's fairly obvious what I enjoy.  I don't hide it on my PCs except for one tiny Sony laptop that goes on the road with me.

Never had to worry about hiding my location before.  I was under the impression that other people finding my IP was only possible with YIM or email. If there is something to just hide my location by IP, I must of missed that.

And yes, I'm over 18, over double 18.  Shocked

Nobody touches my pc but me. That's not a problem in the slightest so I've never really worried about having stuff in the cache or MRU list. I can't imagine being scared about play ideas but then I haven't read everything here yet. My biggest concern would be someone liking what I write a little too much and trying to track me down.

Actually, it wasn't one fuckwit who spoiled it.  It was your government, aided and abetted by all of the fuckwits who put that government in power and refuse to hold it accountable.  (I'm not implying that you are among their numbers.  I'm merely pointing out the government taking away the rights and freedoms of law-abiding citizens is never the fault of some criminal.)


Edit:
By the way... 188 posts since last September?  You're rocking out here!  Keep it up.  (Wait, that's my job, isn't it?)

I know, I know, I was just being slightly irrational.  Its definitely a whole series of people not just one guy and I am so not amongst them.


I'll definitely keep it up.  Do I get a prize for rocking out?   Wink

A prize?  Perhaps a surprise.  (That's two sentence fragments in this post already.  I don't know what's wrong with me today.)

Just be sure to not look over your shoulder from time to time.

I feel the Uk law is simply without merit.  As far as I know, studies done (I think I recall one from Sweden in particular) show that people who utilize outlets like this are by far the minority of those who commit violent sex crimes.  As far as I've seen, nobody here is telling or recruiting people to go out and commit VSC.  It has always been shown that outlets of these types, whether it be a psychologist, girlfriend, or a group of people with the same feelings almost always keeps fantasy from merging with reality.   Wink

There are 2 programs which might be of interest in the area of privacy.
The first, -E-coder- is an IM encryption program. Its pretty easy to use, but BOTH parties need to have installed. (It acts as an IM service.)
The second, is used to conceal the existence of a segregated section of memory on your HD. It is a little fussy to use, but once you figure it out, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a third party to find ANY files placed within it. As a matter of fact, a directory search won't even reveal the segrated memory cache even exists! Your HD merely looks smaller. (Minus the size of the cache)
If anyone is interested, I can post a RS link.
