Question Safe "Sex" Sites - Do They Exist?
Hello Everyone

I'm helping an older gentleman get set up with basic security programs, (he's using Windows XPsp2/IE6) but I've noticed some racy pic sites in his favorites list and suspect this may be causing him problems. As I'm sure telling him not to go to these type of sites will not be effective, I thought I'd ask if anyone knows of any 'reputable' places that may be safer for him. Thanks

Uhh .... if they "exist", I doubt if you'll find anyone here willing to recommend them.

Hi and welcome to TSG,

We will certainly not be making any recommendations regarding sex sites.

However, are you sure he actually visits those sites? Malware often adds these types of sites to the favourites without ever visiting any such sites.

I would strongly recommend obtaining the latest version of Firefox for a start.
Certain sites contain no pop-ups, spyware as it is against their interest.
Secondly private message me with those sites. I will check them out and tell you if they are any good or not.

Heh. I think we'll go ahead and close this just to be safe. While I agree with safe surfing -- and some good suggestions were made here -- I don't want someone to start posting information or URLs that might be inappropriate.
