It seemed like there was somebody messing around with names and titles/descriptions throughout the programme.

Tom Oakley was originally just captioned with his name, making me wonder who he was and why he was on the show. Later he got the "Porn user" caption which explained his presence. That title then seemed to get applied to Jude.

Are the people at the BBC really typing/copying/pasting all this stuff live?

PhD- Porn-Hoarding Doctor.

Didn't she say she "watches" porn? Isn't taking that to mean she "uses" porn (the inference being clear) a bit of a leap.

"Porn user" seems unnecessarily crude. OK, a lot of people who watch porn are probably using it to some sexual or masturbatory end but maybe not everybody.

"OK, a lot of people who watch porn are probably using it to some sexual or masturbatory end but maybe not everybody."

There can be absolutely no reason to watch porn other than to facilitate masturbation - unless you're so stupid you can't follow the plots of daytime soaps, that is.

I hope she sues Newsnight!!

Ummm, bobbydazzler, what about couples who watch porn together? Porn is not exclusively used to facilitate masturbation. Maybe that's what you use it for, but not allof us do. Last porn I watched was with my wife, and we weren't masturbating.

Agree ngangaman, but in that context I'd say you're still using it.

If I'm listening to music and enjoying myself as a result, am I 'using' music for my own personal enjoyment? Am I a music user?

erm we used to watch porn in a group put it on mute anddo the voices ourselves, none of us masterbated while that was happening i assure you bobbydazzler...

'I hope she sues Newsnight!!'

If she does, given past history of who pays for Newsnight's little strays into possibly inaccurate editorialising, I am not sure I can afford it.

In other news, it will be interesting how many more they get into the studio given the precedent they are setting for ambushing guests.

After McAlpine and the benefits young mum, I'd have thought Mr. Katz & team could ill afford no one on screen to complement the ever fewer watching it.

I think the stripping her of her title was an accidental oversight instead of on purpose ... it's live TV and that's the sort of mistake that can happen.

We had also both discussed with producers beforehand that we consume porn. It's what we were there to talk about. It hadn't occurred to me that now I will forever be Tom Oakley, Porn User but it's hardly surprising.
