Kotaku scooped a tasty little piece about Ethur, a faith-based cult in California, attacking Nintendo’s Wii. In a press release released by Ethur and ThePornTalk.com, the initiative attempts to expose the dangers of WiiPorn (not to be confused with WeePorn, which is a whole different story altogether).
The frightening quotes come from ThePornTalk.com founder Mike Foster. Like the zipper and so many other devilish creations that came before them, argues Foster, WiFi enabled consoles are gateways to sex, debauchery, AIDS, and, worst of all, becoming a liberal.
Foster believes that despite the safeguards available on the Wii and similar system, parents seldom take advantage of the precautionary features. The result is a veritable porn heaven that, in addition to blindness and hairy palms, will lead to, you know, a fiery hell.
Anywho, here is the full press release for your entertainment:
The Wii’s Dirty Little Secret
The Wiittle Porn Problem For Nintendo’s Best Selling Game Console
CORONA, CA – The Nintendo Wii gaming console has a wiittle porn problem. That’s right; this seemingly innocent family game console has a dirty little secret. It has the dubious ability to access pornography via the internet and most parents are not aware of this fact according to www.ThePornTalk.com
Like many new gaming technologies, the Wii’s wireless internet capabilities make it a portal to porno. “Parents think the computer is the only way for their kids to get porn on the internet. Unfortunately, they are dead wrong,” says Mike Foster, founder of ThePornTalk.com. “Gaming devices like the Wii and the PSP aren’t just for fun games anymore. You’re able to surf the net, chat with friends, email, and view porn because of its internet access. Kids know this but parents don’t!”
Wireless internet (Wi-Fi) technology allows electronic devices like Nintendo’s Wii to wirelessly connect to the internet. Airports, Starbucks, schools, and even entire cities give people the opportunity to log on the internet with a Wi-Fi device like the Wii or even Sony’s PSP. “This makes it very difficult to monitor as a parent. You can easily put safeguards in your house but it’s impossible to monitor in a Wi-Fi world,” says Foster. “Even though the Nintendo Wii has parental controls, parents don’t see a need for them because they are unaware of the porn capabilities.”
The Nintendo Wii has become the best-selling video game console in the United States, outselling Microsoft and Sony competitors in the month of January, 2007. Because of its success many websites have taken advantage of its online capability. Several companies have changed the look and functionality of their web sites to accommodate the Wii. The porn industry is also implementing these changes to their sites. Porn websites are taking the look of the Wii’s home page and menus and modeling their own sites after them. Porn sites are even converting their video clips so that they can run on the Wii.
So the solution lies in parents getting the facts and then talking to their children about expectations for online activity. Foster believes that, “Whether it is the home computer or these new gaming consoles, porn is easily accessible. The Wii is an amazing console and tons of fun but parents need good info on how to keep kids safe.”
ThePornTalk.com is an innovative web resource that helps parents talk to their kids about porn and internet dangers. The site features conversation starters, videos, a weekly podcast, parent’s stories and other resources. Contributors to the site include child advocates, pastors, therapists, and kids themselves.
