Sharp rise in people looking over peoples shoulders to watch porn on the train

THE act of watching porn over people’s shoulder’s in public has finally hit the mainstream this week after a newly published report revealed that arrests for the ‘offence’ have risen by a third in the last year.

In 2016 there were 26 incidents including leering passengers, compared to just 17 the year before. And although watching explicit material is not technically a crime in itself, those viewing such content can expect arrested and detained by the police for ‘Breach of the peace.’

Emmanuel Wood who watches hardcore porn every day on the train to work, was horrified when he noticed a man behind him peaking over his shoulder one morning.

“I promptly stopped my movie and called the police.” He said, “Ironically I was on the Virgin train service down to London when I decided I was going to watch the first episode of Back Door Booty 4.”

“It was just getting to the good part when the man behind me caught my eye, he was sort of toing and froing so I angled my phone to get a reflection of his face. I couldn’t believe it, he was watching over my shoulder. I think the thing that disturbed me the most was that he was just so blatant about it, there was absolutely no regard for anyone else on the train.”

“When the police arrived they took us both into the station and questioned him whilst I had to give a witness statement about the ordeal. I’m genuinely shaken.”

The Metropolitan police who dealt with Bobs case said “This is another selfish act. People do not realise that leaning over someone else’s shoulder to watch X-rated material may be perceived as offensive by those viewing the content.”
