Mum Horrified After Asking Sky Q Remote For 'Bourne Movies' And Being Shown Porn Movies

Mum Horrified After Asking Sky Q Remote For 'Bourne Movies' And Being Shown Porn Movies

A mum has spoken out about the potential pitfalls of using voice-activated tech after she innocently requested the Sky Q remote for 'Bourne films', but ended up being offered 'porn films'.

Dawn Pearse said she was left horrified when she spoke into the remote to ask for films from the Bourne franchise for her ten-year-old son Alex, only to see a list of adult movies appear at the bottom of the screen instead. Not ideal.

Quick-thinking Dawn, 42, had to quickly jump off the sofa and try to block the 48-inch screen as she tried to remove the search, all while Alex was sat there wondering what was going on.

In defence of the tech, I've a sneaky feeling that 'porn film' searches are more popular than 'Bourne film' searches.

Her misheard search for Bourne films brought back a number of flicks, including Lovelace - a biopic about Linda Lovelace, who starred in iconic 70s porno Deep Throat - and the absolutely-not-suitable for kids Boogie Nights, which tells the tale of nightclub worker who ends up working the porn industry.

Dawn said: "Alex has seen Mission: Impossible and Fast and Furious and we were thinking of something else to watch.

"I said 'Bourne films,' and was really shocked when the words 'porn films' popped up at the bottom of the screen.

"One of the films had a rear-shot of a woman in just her knickers standing in front of a desk and I spotted the one about Linda Lovelace.

"I panicked and jumped up. Alex got a little irate as he didn't know what was going on. He asked me, 'Mum, what are you doing?'

"Eventually I managed to get the films off the screen. I didn't want to be having a conversation about porn with Alex yet." And I'm pretty sure young Alex will grow up to agree with that.

Thankfully, all's well that ends well, as Alex didn't end seeing anything he shouldn't have and did end up seeing one of the Bourne films - turns out he's a fan.

Dawn added: "We did eventually watch the first Bourne film, The Bourne Identity, and Alex loved it."
