Movies at the Hilton

Posted Tue November 28, 2006 8:49 am, by Dora E. written to Hilton Hotels

Write a Letter to this Company


On a recent Thanksgiving trip to Nashville, my family stayed at the Hilton Downtown. The hotel was rather nice and we especially enjoyed the breakfast, although the price was a bit high.

My complaint is in regards to your in room movies. In addition to regular movies, there were a few choices that were pornographic. While I can understand that you serve businessmen at your hotel that might like this sort of thing, the pornographic movies should be available only to those rooms that are used by adults that want this sort of thing. Obviously, a family with two children (ages 11 and 8) does not want this sort of thing, so why have it turned on in our room?

My husband and I were out of the room for only a few minutes. While we did leave our children alone in the room, they were instructed to lock the door and not let anyone in. What we did not realize is that they could just turn on the television, push a few buttons, and watch pornography.

Upon returning to our room, the children were sitting on the bed watching naked people performing sex acts. We quickly turned it off, of course, and talked to our children about what they had seen.

On checkout, there was a $6.95 charge for the movie. Although we had forgotten the incident, the charge on our bill brought back the image of our children watching this horrible programming. We asked to speak to the manager, who was not immediately available. We told the person at the desk that we were upset that the hotel made pornography available to children and asked that the charge be removed. The person at the desk told us that we can request that the adult channels be locked out, on check in. She also told us that the television has a guest services feature that lets parents lock out these channels at any time. I told her that I though the channels should be locked out unless a person requests that they be turned on.

I am not a prude. I have two children so I know what sex is about. My husband and I allow our children to watch certain movies at home, with us. We also teach our children that bodies are not something to be ashamed of, as long as it is within the home. There is a difference between my children seeing me getting dressed and my children watching strangers touching each other in private places. There is also a big difference between art, which I studied and have a degree in, and pornography. I am nude a prude.

What I would like Hilton to do is to make these channels locked out automatically. You might want to consider having special rooms for businessmen and other people that like to watch pornography, so that these things aren't in the rooms with families and the majority of the population that knows that pornography is not art and it is not about the beauty of the human body.

I was able to receive a refund of my $6.95, so this is not necessary.

Thank you and have a nice day.

I'm adding a note at the bottom for Planet Feedback. I read what you wrote about me in my letter to the Chili's and I think you are all wrong. This letter will show you that I am not a bad person. I did not say anything about my money. I only mention my art history degree because it shows that I am not a prude about nudity. I am sharing because I was surprised to find that anyone can just turn on pornography, even though the majority of the American public does not approve of this sort of thing. I think people need to know that they need to always tell the desk when you check in that you do not want pornography in your room. That is why I am sharing this letter. I also want to say that at no time did my husband say any four letter words. Have a nice day.

I think having an automatic lockout, rather than automatic access is a
GREAT idea :)

But they're never going to do it. Hotels cater mostly to the frequent
traveller (mostly men) and romantic trysters, both of the one-night
stand variety and week long vacation/honeymoon kind. Both groups tend
to watch a lot of porn for the length of their stays. Businessmen who
get lonely and bored and want to indulge in a brief fantasy without
having to find a seedier part of town, and lovers who want to spice
things up a bit find it easier, and less intimidating, to order their
porn discretely than to go out in search of a local adult bookstore or
theater.

Hotels know this. They make a LOT of money on these movies, and they
go out of their way to make it as easy, discrete and anonymous as
possibly for the guest to indulge. It's a much better policy for them
to make the porn readily available, so that their most frequent guests
do not experience the kind of embarrassment that comes with asking to
see these films, and if they did have to experience it, they would
watch a lot less of them. And the hotels would lose money.

So, while it makes sense from a moral, family minded perspective,
there is no way this policy will be changed. Your kids are not
sex-crazed monsters and you were not negligent parents. I think you
did the exact right thing to immediately have a talk with them about
what they saw (even though most five year olds know more about sex
these days than their parents, thanks to the Internet). Yours are not
the first kids who got curious and they won't be the last. Chalk it
up to an "oops" moment, and remember to make sure to lock it out on
your next vacation. :)

What exactly does this have to do with you not being a prude? It makes
no sense at all. Besides that, there is a difference between nudity in
art and nudity in a pornographic film. For someone with a supposed
college education, you should know this.

Also, if you have a college education, you should know that with any
hotel you go to, every room gets the same thing broadcast on their
television. There's really no way that they can block certain
television channels to individual rooms.

I think your problem is that you complain too much and that maybe your
husband needs to get himself some anger management help. Also, buy
your kid a box of Eggo so he'll know not to order waffles at Chili's
anymore and that he can just have a waffle when he gets home!

First of all, you other posters are hysterical. I laughed until I
cried. Second of all, I just had to add this for the OP's sake, taken
straight from the "National Child Care Information Center's" website
(nccic.org). Copied and pasted:

[QUOTE]Dakota County, Minnesota
FAQ - At what age may a child be left home alone and for how long?
(2000), by the Dakota County Attorney's Office, states:
There is no Minnesota law that states at what exact age a child must
be before he or she may be left home alone or left under the care of
another child. There are general laws, however, that require adequate
and appropriate supervision of children. County child protection
offices are required to investigate and enforce that general law. As a
result, Dakota County Child Protection, a part of Dakota County
Community Services, has adopted a policy, which defines those
situations when it will investigate a report of children who may be
inadequately supervised.
The policy is as follows:

IX. LACK OF SUPERVISION
A. The decision to assess the reports of unsupervised children will be
made in light of the following considerations, according to Dakota
County Community Services policy:
1. The maturity level of the children;
2. The accessibility of the parent, guardian, caretaker or responsible
adult by phone or in person;
3. The physical or mental health condition of the children;
4. The behavioral history of the children;
5. Whether a young child is using a stove, iron or appliance which
poses a danger because of their age;
6. Whether the parents have discussed an escape plan or held a fire
drill with the children;
7. Whether the residence has a smoke detector;
8. Whether there are unusual hazards in the home;
9. The children's reaction to being left alone;
10. The ages of the children being cared for;
11. Whether the child has completed a Baby-sitting Clinic; and
12. The reliability of the person that the parent has chosen to
provide supervision.[/QUOTE]

Notice numbers 2, 6, 8, and 11.

#2 - There was no way to reach you if something happened to them.

#6 - You did not say whether or not you discussed an escape plan for
them.

#8 - A hotel room is not child-proof.

#11 - Did your 11-year old complete a baby-sitting Clinic?

If you said "no" to any of those, then you're children were not
allowed to be left by themselves.

haha this is hilarious, "The hotel was rather nice and we especially
enjoyed the breakfast, although the price was a bit high." you went to
the Hilton, of all hotels, and called it pricey? WOW.

Oh and I am sure you left for only a few minutes, you said your
children were on the bed and the movie was already to the point of
them touching eachother. This is funny because, I do not have a degree
in pornography or anything so I can not boast about that, but from
what I know, most pornos do not start out with the clothes off, in
fact most take a while to get to that point. So I am quite sure that
you were not gone for a "few minutes." By the time they took to get to
the movie, and then to get to that point?

Oh, and do you really think all business men like to watch porn in
their room when they stay at a hotel on a business weekend? Because
from what I know, most of them use the room for sleep, not
masturbation.

I guess I missed this line when I first read this letter back in
November. Why would they offer porn if no one watched it? They
wouldn't. Also, if the "majority of the American public" doesn't
approve, why is it a multi-billion dollar industry?

In this particular letter, you shouldnt have left your kids alone.
REPEAT. You shouldnt have left your kids alone. EVERY hotel has
pay-per-view. So you not knowing about it is crap.
As for the charge, of course it should have been refunded. But you
don't really have the right to blame the hotel for your negligence. If
your children had been supervised, they never would have seen the
porn.

by coyoteugly59 Posted Sun February 4, 2007 @ 11:18 PM

Ok Dora,

Now I'm going to be kinda harsh here. #1 I stay at the Hilton in
Nashville all the time. You have to select what you want to watch and
they charge to your bill or you can watch the free TV. Now as a
parent you can use the "Parental Lock". This is available at all
motels/hotels. You seem naive in the sense that the Hilton is
responsible for what you as the parent allows your children to watch.
#2 Your children does not need to be watching any type of nudity in my
book. You as the parent are to pre-watch programs before hand. It is
good you've discussed the issue of sex with your children with
pedophilers today. With child abuse as prevalent today they could be
marked as a target. Esp. family members.

#3 Now as a mandated reporter I hold you completely responsible for
leaving your children unattended. This is one of my worst pet peeves.
Now if something happens to them out of your site you would want to
blame the Hotel, right? When in fact, DCFS should have been called.
Were you down stairs in the Sports Bar having drinks? See we all have
been to the Hilton. My son is 24 yrs and married. I never lefted him
unattended. This is a form of abuse you know this right? You are the
one that would be helded responsible if something would happen. You
know like leaving your children at home unattended.
That's is against the law as well.

#4 The hotel can not feed Satellite TV to just certain Rooms.
Satellite is hooked up in all the rooms. You decide what you want to
watch.

You put yourself at risk by writing such a letter. I do not agree
with Pornography myself, but you as the parent must not have taught
your children it's wrong. You must have forgot to tell them they can
not purchase any movie without your permission, too.
But if you had been in the room you would not have had to write this
letter.

Be responsible adults and parents. Selfishness is the key to all
diasters. You remind me of friends we would go to nashville with,
they let their kids run wilded and then was ashamed if they got into
trouble or they would want to blame the hotel.

Hotels/Motels provide rooms not a babysitting service. Parents that
send their kids to the pool unsupervised wants to blame the facility
for any accident that my transpire.

You are responsible until they turn 21years old. If you don't believe
me call an attorney and see what advice they give. While your calling
ask how you could be held reliable if something happened to your
children while you were out of the room. The same applies to leaving
them unattended at home.

Take my advice, think before you do. There is always someone watching
especially parents these days.

Abuse comes in all forms.

A. Ph.D.

Wow. My husband and I have stayed at Hiltons with our daughter
(currently 11 y.o.) numerous times over the years. Never left her in
the room by herself, because I actually give a damn about her safety,
but even if I did, she wouldn't order a porno while I was out. She a)
has a clear understanding of what types of movies are appropriate for
her to watch, and b) would ask for permission before even ordering a
movie. Kinda sad when a hotel gets blamed for parents who have
parenting issues and children who are unable/unwilling to behave
appropriately (or received inadequate parenting, period).

As a former hotel manager, one a Hilton property, one a Choice
property and one a Intercontinental property. All of the mentioned
properties had porn. There is NO WAY to retrict which rooms recieve
porn until check-in. All rooms have to be made available to all
guests. You must be pro-active in your care of your children. You can
not expect Hilton to be responsible for what your kids watch on TV.
Thats your responsibilty.

Now, why did you leave your children alone in your hotel room? Never,
EVER leave children un-attended in a hotel! Fires and other
emergencies happen. Small children are not mature enough to
understand evacuation procedures. Most properties but not all can
suggest care-givers for a fee. As from my experiece most kids left
alone will not stay in their room. I had one mother who left her 7
year old alone with her 2 year old to run to a grocery store. I found
the baby walking around the balacony that is directly above the pool.
One small slip and that child would have drowned! THINK!

First let me say I am a businessman, I travel all over the country
every week. And, my company usually puts us in hiltons or some other
hotel affilliated with Hilton. So on with your letter...


Never paid for breakfast at a hilton hotel, they alwasy give me mine
for free (maybe cause I'm a diamond member??? hmmm)

The movies that are avaiable, are at many, MANY hotels, and are not
owned or regulated by the hotel in question. You're actually lucky
they gave you your money back.

Speaking of money, $6.95 for a porn??? That's a good price, you
should commend your kids for being bargain porn buyers. :)

As for the porn, I've checked a couple of those out, and they aren't
worth getting upset about, you'll see much worse (or better?) on HBO.


And the comment about the majority of the country not accepting Porn,
is just ridiculous. What you must have meant is that the majority of
the country just don't want people to know they watch porn, cause they
care what everyone thinks about them. But, you said you let your kids
watch certain movies at home. Sounds like your are saying they can
watch porn at home, while you talk them through it. But, then again
you said you don't like them watching strangers touching each other.
hmmm... Does that mean you let them watch movies of you and your
hubby doin' it? That sounds alot worse.

Anyways, sounds to me like you have alot more to deal with in your
life than your kids seeing strangers touching each other. Personally,
I see nothing wrong with it. Maybe if americans weren't so frigid
about sex (and SO much more), life would be alot nicer, and easier.
And I could listen to music without the stupid *BLEEP* everytime they
say something...

When I requested a room, via my company's travel web site, it said I
was getting a "Business Room." I immediately thought of Dora and was
SURE I was getting one of her special "businessman" rooms with porn.

But, no. Just HBO.

actions? Your children did something wrong. When you blame the world
around you for their problems, you only teach them they are not
responsible. Good luck.

If no one watches porn and hates it, Dora, why is it such a
multi-billion dollar industry? Also, your art degree or whatever else
you think accredits you as some kind of expert here is irrelevent.

I am puzzled as to why you thought it prudent to leave your children
unattended in a hotel room in an area you were unfamiliar with. Your
kids watching porn, in that case, is the absolute least of your
worries. What if one or both were seriously hurt and required medical
care? Do you realize you could be found negligent for leaving them
unsupervised?

I do hope you are aware that The Hilton and its ordering channel are
not responsible for monitoring your children or what they watch; that
is strictly your job. If don't want your children watching porn,
which is reasonable, you need to take control of the situation, even
if that includes the not so fun aspect of not being able to leave your
kids in a hotel room alone and go do adult things by yourself.

Seeing as you received compensation for the price of the adult movie,
I'm not entirely sure what this complaint was about.

thing disgust you, and I'm guessing you and your husband have few
friends. People like you are a societal pain in the ass. You revel in
being dissatisfied. Honey, that's a sickness. Plain and simple. Take a
self-inventory, girl. Please!

Your complaints are moronic. I'll give you the rude waitress at

First, if you are staying at the Hilton of course the prices are high.
The doesn't take a master's to figure out.

Second, why would you leave your children alone in a hotel. And if
they were alone long enough to order porn it was more than a few
minutes.

And the only reason you mention your degree is because you think you

Did you not just say in your letter to Chili's that your husband said

bad parents when they grow up. I feel sorry for them that they are
being raised this way. I would not say you are a bad person-you are a
selfish, snobby, rude person who complains about every tiny thing! If
you had so much money like you claim, then why are you demanding all
kinds of discounts over meaningless incidents? You are obviously one
of those idiotic people that just complain no matter what. Okay, the
Hilton did offer a blocking of those channels! Hello? What more can
you ask than that? Seperate rooms for business men? Give me a break,
I'm sure your high-class husband watches enough porn for every
business man in NC because you are so prudish and unwilling to admit
YOU ARE WRONG.
Get over youself and your high-class status. And please, for my sake
never ever come to the Chili's that I work at. Or at least give us
fair warning so we can clear the wait list (god forbid you wait to eat

Dear God, you're a flavor of stupid that should never have been
allowed to breed.

You're feeding this amazing lack of personal responsibility into your
children as though it's anything remotely resembling logic. The
people who've accused you of building up these ridiculous ideas of
entitlement, and they're ABSOLUTELY right. The world doesn't revolve
around you. It's not there to cater to your whims and desires or fall
worshipping at your feet just because you arrived.

Are you so desperate to validate your existence that you feel this
need to constantly remind people of what you think your credentials
are? That you "succeeded" in bagging a rich man and popping out a
couple of kids? I have news for you, sugar, that doesn't take BRAINS
to accomplish. So the more you say it, the more pathetic it comes
across. Only those frantic to believe they're special and
unforgettable behave in this uncouth, revolting fashion.

Get some class, get a clue, and get a life.

You are a terrible human being, and you should stop inflicting
yourself on the public.

Just read your OP re: Chili's and wanted to express my condolences for
the lack of social graces and personal responsibility your Art Degree
at Duke taught you.

As the wife of a restaurant manager, I should also express my sincere
gratitude for people like you; you keep our conversations filled with
laughter.

Psychoanalization, go:

You were born to a lower upperclass family.
In high school, you were C+/B-.
You didn't have the looks, but you had the money and the attitude, so
you were popular enough. But the REAL popular girls, the ones who had
the looks, the money, and the attitude, always looked down on you and
made fun of you. This built up in you a bitter resentment and a need
to prove that you were even bitchier than the bitches,
If you had been born into the current young generation, you would have
had an appearance on the "My Super Sweet Sixteen" show.
In college, you didn't start out knowing what you wanted to do. You
didn't particularly enjoy any of your high school classes, so you
didn't really want to study anything. But hey, you weren't at college
to learn, you were there to get drunk and stretch yourself out.
You eventually decided on some meaningless major with a low workload
like ancient art or communications.
You knew you wouldn't need to make money, because you'd just find some
sugar-daddy to whore yourself out to.
Looking back, you, in a way, pity yourself. You see immense pile of
waste that was your life and you look in the mirror and feel
vulnerable.
Because of this vulnerability, you feel the need to criticize everyone
who is not a member of your class in order to feel better about
yourself. However, you do go after the ones who just deserve it, you
only go after the people that you know have to let you win the
arguement, like store clerks, waitresses, stewardesses, etc. You just
don't have the confidence or will power to fight anyone who doesn't
have to let you win.
Your bitching becomes even more powerful when you know that the fault
is your own. For instance, when you leave your kids alone to watch
pornography, which you, having visited countless hotels, know is easy
for kids to do, you blame the hotel.
Your Husband works most of the time, which means you are left to raise
the spawn.
He's glad that he spends time away from the kids because he, from what
I've read so far, quite obviously hates your kids. He just wanted to
bang some floozie.
The obvious outcome of this tragedy is that your children are stupid
enough to try to order waffles when waffles aren't on the menu, while,
at the same time, your husband likes to publicly humiliate them by not
sharing his menu, thus beginning an entire ridiculous event.

Am I in the ballpark?

"There is a difference between my children seeing me getting dressed
and my children watching strangers touching each other in private
places."

I think you having your children watch porn with you and your husband
is directly related to them wanting to watch you undress.

Also, your kids are ugly and stupid.

You're retarded... It's common sense to check for a channel/movie lock
program in the hotel if you don't want your children watching
pornography. And it's not the hotel's fault that your children are
going through puberty and you aren't intelligent enough to lecture
them on what's acceptable or not...

By the way, you must think your children are pretty stupid to say:

"What we did not realize is that they could just turn on the
television, push a few buttons, and watch pornography."

but then again, why shouldn't you? Especially considering the fact
that they raised by you :)

Now, you're saying that there was no point in this message that you
mentioned money? If you have short term memory loss, why i don't you
just look two lines up at what you wrote? Yep, you complained about
the payment and got a refund, and you even said the the whole incident
was solved. So, if the whole incident was solved, why the hell did you
post it up on here?
It just makes you look like an attention whore(which you probably
are)...

So, at what point in your message did you prove that you were such a
great person? The only thing you mentioned about your beliefs was that
you were against pornography...

Also, stop showing off your art degree in every message you make, it
doesn't prove that you're intelligent in any way. You don't have to be
a genius to be able to paint or draw... Besides, most business men are
bound to smarter than you, so don't bash every one of them based on
stereotypes.

Have a nice day.

First strike -

"While I can understand that you serve businessmen at your hotel that
might like this sort of thing,"

So, only travelling businessmen like porn? If I was a "businessman", I
think I would find that offensive.

"I am nude a prude." tee hee

Second strike -
"special rooms for businessmen and other people that like to watch
pornography,"

So, from now on, when registering for a hotel room, the front desk
should include the question "porn or no porn" along with "smoking or
non"???In other words, because you couldn't get a handle on your
children one evening, the rest of the world is responsible?

Third strike - you're out! -
"majority of the population that knows that pornography is not art and
it is not about the beauty of the human body."

The above is your opinion that you are projecting onto the "majority"
as if you have the right to speak for the majority.

"majority of the American public does not approve of this sort of
thing"

Where do you get this information? Just because you don't approve does
not make it the opinion of the majority. There are sex shops
everywhere that make tons, I mean, TONS of cash yearly. The Internet
porn industry brings in TONS of money...these are facts you can look
up (- of course, if the business is legit. Which a good portion of
them are.)

How about this idea? Watch your children yourself. Educate your
children yourself about the choices they make. Stop expecting the
majority of us to cater to your opinion as well as to make up for your
parenting skills that leave something to be desired. (You menitoned
the Chili's post. In that letter - you demand a restaurant give your
child their own adult menu because your husband, who was finished with
his - would not share. You also demanded that the restaurant make an
item that is clearly not on their menu or something that they even
have the capacity to make. In my opinion, you are teaching your
children to be entitlement whores. You know, where the whole world
should cater to them because mommy has an Art degree.)

I'll give you one thing - yes, hotels should consider locking the porn
channels to make them not easy for children to rent. But not for the
reason you are giving - that the majority of people think porn is bad
- but because children are curious beings, no matter what you do, they
are going to explore and see what they can get away with. No amount of
bitching on your part will stop that.

I've found that children are usually at least three years ahead of
where you think they are in terms of mental and intellectual
development. We underestimate them all the time. Clearly, you need
to revisit your copy of "Parenting for Dummies" and reread the chapter
on parental supervision and taking responsibility for your own
screw-ups. Sowwy.

You left your children alone in hotel room and your're mad at the
hotel because you're 11 year old doesnt know better than to order
porn? You realize he had to go through at least two confirmations to
get to the programing, just like ordering a ppv movie? If hes old
enough to be alone with his 8yr old sister he should be old enough to
know better. Porn is a multi-billon dollar industry they are not
going to change anything. Do know how much money they make off of
those movies? I would think to ask about the availablity and blocking
not just porn but all charged movies before leaving my kids alone,
which at that age I certainly wouldnt do in a strange place. What
does your husband saying four letter words have to do with anything?
Im new here but I have to guess from your comment you were the writter
of the chilis comment mad because they didn't have waffles? I wont

Since the hotel desk clerk was kind enough to give you a tip on how to
prevent that in the future, I would suggest you use it.

Also, in my home we were discussing just this letter and thought
perhaps of another idea (which we are submitting through another
avenue) on how to prevent children from being able to order these
movies.

The "special rooms" won't work--hotels already get enough guff when
they run out of smoking/nonsmoking or king-sized versus double bedded
rooms.

You can't tell me he didn't know what he was doing? If so then he
should not have been left in a "hotel room" alone. And I'm sure he
knows how to work his Ipod, cell phone, computer, and TELEVISION at
home.
Every hotel that has a tv offers the channels, its how they make
money. You know about that right? Money! Its your thing!
Maybe you should just avoid all Hilton & Chili's. Or for that matter,
avoid all hotels and restraunts, and save the sanity of everyone!

Why is it the hotel's job to police your children?
If they are old enough to leave alone in a room, then you better make
sure you understand the potential consequences of leaving them alone
and that they understand things like, don't rent porn and don't eat
all the $30 cans of cashews and drink $8 cans of sprite out of the
little fridge.
The hotel makes a lot of money on those porn movies and will lose a
lot more money forcing the businessmen to call down to the girl at
front desk and say, "I want to unlock Stinky Sluts Part 4, and please
send up a bunch of clean towels...", than they will losing a family
here or there because their kids a little kinky.

I had no idea you had to request the movies being blocked from the
room. Thats news to me. I think they should ask when you are checking
in if you want to block them or not.
While it seems odd that they would just offer these movies as standard
fair for viewing in the rooms, it seems more odd that more fault
doesnt lie on your children.
At 11 and 8, they are completely old enough to read. If the movie
order section on pay per view is anything like cable, or other regular
movies we have watched on pay per view on vacation trips, you have to
complete some steps to get the order complete.
While the hotel should make people aware that they can be ordered,
your kids should know not to order movies without permisison- period.
I dont think its anyone's place to say wether or not you should leave
them in the hotel room alone- but if they cannot be trusted not to
order porn on the pay per view, than maybe you should reconsider whose
fault this problem really is.

If he were smart he would have changed the channel immediately after
he heard the sound of someone opening the door. He would keep the
remote ready nearby so he could quickly change channels as soon as he
heard something, his parents would never know that he ordered the
porn, and when his parents went to check out and were charged for the
porn movie saying they know nothing about this and are not paying for
something that they did not order he would play stupid and pretend he
knows nothing about it.

If the facts in this letter were slightly altered and posted by anyone
else would it be a legit complaint?

Say a mother was in this room with her children (same ages, hubby
stayed home with the flu) and she had to take a shower. She walks out
of the bathroom to see her children watching this movie and was upset
and followed the rest of the steps that Dora here followed... would
this be a valid complaint?


I absolutely think that it would be. I have never seen signs that
state you can block PPV channels or pornography. And seriously who
reads everything that is in those binders they keep in the rooms?
Where I do not agree that you should have to request these channels be
turned on there could be more precautionary measures. Like a password
assigned to the room to order such channels and also that applies for
room service or any other addition that can rack up the bill. Kids
don't think about these things all the time. And as adults we
shouldn't expect them to think about these things. My son could have
just as easily came across the hotel menu and ordered room service not
realizing I would be charged. Or ordered a movie without even reading
the prompts.

You can teach your kids whatever you want to teach them but if they
are put into an unfamiliar situation alot of what you tell them flies
right out the window. They get excited and have only their goal in
mind. And I don't think THAT reflects on anyone's parenting. Being a
good parent can only take you so far from there just being a kid takes
over.



**disclaimer** this is no way an attempt to justify what the OP did.
I don't think it was right for her to leave her children in the hotel
room alone. I just wondered if were a slightly different situation

Seriously. What rock do you live under???

"I am sharing because I was surprised to find that anyone can just
turn on pornography, even though the majority of the American public
does not approve of this sort of thing."

Really? Since when? If the American public didnt approve of this sort
of thing then why is the porn industry booming? Whether they admit it
or not there is a very large part of the American population that
watches porn.

Why did you even send this letter to Hilton? If you just wanted to
prove to PFB users that you arent a complete and total jerk you could
have just posted this in you blog or sent it to PFB. You got a refund
on your movie and you were told by the employees at the Hilton that
you could have blocked the channels out yourself. So you really have
no complaint with Hilton. So why send them this letter. And worse yet,
add the whole paragraph at the bottom to the PFB users. Dont you think
that is going to completely confuse the people at Hilton who might
read this? Not only will they be convinced that you are someone who
cant take responsibility for their own children, but they will think
you have just lost it altogether.

Just because you dont want to, or cant seem to, take responsibility
for your own children doesnt mean that everyone who enters a hotel
room should have to have their tv viewing censored. Not everyone
considers porn a bad thing. Instead of trying to restrict the entire
WORLD maybe you should try just watching out for your kids. Next time
dont leave two children locked in a hotel room alone. I am guessing
though that your 11 year old knows more about sex than you think. And
probably more than you do.

I just have to say one more thing.

"I am nude a prude."

by Alastor Posted Thu November 30, 2006 @ 12:57 AM

Argh! And I thought the parasite had been removed! Going to half to go
talk to my psychiatrist again....But seriously, Dora, if this is an
actual factual happen stance, then well I don't see this as the
hotel's entire fault.

A) You left your kids alone in a locked room and told them to watch TV
(note: you didn't say in your letter what they could or couldn't
watch, but I could just be splitting hairs here *cue the smirk*)

B) Its practically common knowledge that all hotels typically do offer
a more adulterated form of entertainment and no it's not THAT easy to
get it on the TV. As someone who used to work at a hotel though
perhaps not as ritzy as the Hilton there are still plenty of warnings
about what you are purchasing to watch and a lot of steps to go
through in order to obtain the viewing of this material.

C)Now perhaps it's not my place to typically judge people's parenting
skills but it is your responsibility to ensure that this type of thing
doesn't happen, as the front desk clerk informed you they do have
measures to prevent this from happening but you never informed them to
implement these measures.....

D) Hypothetically speaking lets take this scenario: You're at work and
let's say dad is outside mowing the lawn but does go inside every once
in a while to get a drink, wipe sweat, etc. If your son had found
lets say *daddy's bat cave of naughties* and started watching them and
you come home to find out that he did who would you blame? The T.V.?
VCR? DVD player? I mean how dare it let your son watch it without you
expressed permission! Perhaps you might blame your husband for not
better hiding these items but it still comes down to a parenting
issue! You can't blame everyone else for something you do not prepare
for or take into consideration that might happen.

E) Did you know your son would watch this material while you were gone
for that time? Probably not but the fact is that the possibility was
there for it to happen anyways so you should have taken a more
pro-active stance to prevent this.

Some people just love passing the buck onto other people or items that
they say cause all these problems: music, TV, video games, etc. But
ever is it true that it is the PARENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to ensure that
if they don't want their children to engage in said acts then they
should take measures to prevent it. Get over yourself.

Alastor.

As luck would have it, he'd just received the latest waffle skin
flick, Debbie Does Breakfast.

Here, for you, is my review. There may be content that is not
suitable for those under 18 (this means you, Zachary) or those with
wheat intolerances. If either of these apply to you, hit the back
button now.

Debbie Does Breakfast is hot! I'm talking "375 degrees in a
pre-heated oven for 20 minutes" hot. I'm talking "I left the coffee
pot on so long that all of the coffee boiled off and now the carafe
has cracked" hot.

It takes place in THE Chili's. A man walks in and tries to order a
waffle and before you know it, everyone is doing it. There's not just
kissing at this THE Chili's.

There's something for everyone. For those that like 'em big on top,
the porn star Popovers is in this one. The scene with her being
coated with honey butter is nothing short of the most erotic thing
ever put on film. Watch as the spreader glides over her small bottom
and top, which BURST free from the pan.

Couples will enjoy the sweat side of Marmalade, who spreads very
nicely.

The Rice Krispies scene is great. Spoon in the bowl. Spoon out of
the bowl. Spoon in the bowl. Spoon out of the bowl. Spoon in the
bowl. Spoon out of the bowl. Spoon in the bowl. Spoon out of the
bowl. Spoon in the bowl. Snap Krackle Pop!

Now, I'm not much of a (hot cross) buns man, myself. But there is
plenty of cruller-donut action to satisfy those of us with more
"straight" tastes.

Now, some may say that they're pandering to something of an
international audience, what with the croissants and flan. The
English Muffins (snicker) are quite tasty, although the Bangers and
Mash were are little hard core for my tastes. And what would a porno
be without the dark skinned Hash Browns and the oversized pork
sausage.

Look out for Yeast. She makes things rise.

Melon. Peaches and Cream. Cherries? Not so much.

The batter-on-batter scene with Belgian waffle and Pancake looks
painful, especially when that big gal from Brussels is on top. Ouch.
And when they whip the button, I simply couldn't watch.

Favorite cheesy line: Yeah baby, I'm going to squeeze you until I get
a full days supply of vitamin C from you juice, Orange! (Said by that
Pop Tart with the blue eye shadow that seems to appear in all of these
films. Tart, indeed.)

But nothing compares to the final scene with that international porn
star, the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Let's just say that this is one scene
that gives new meaning the phrase "Poppin Fresh."

Ah...

I think I need a cigarette.

Or maybe the wife and I will just go off and a feed each other Egg
McMuffin.

Next week, my review of Deep Throat II, The Revenge of the Bacon.

First off, I don't care that you left your kids in the hotel alone.
You be the judge of how responsible your kids are, just as long as you
are willing to be responsible for their actions.
They obviously went through several steps to get to the ADULT MOVIES
and rent one. You left them there alone, you are responsible. Almost
every major chain of hotels offers soft porn on their hotels, if you
were unaware of that you really should get out more, or stay in better
hotels.
As for the majority of people not wanting to see pornagraphy, more
than 60% of the video sales in the US are adult movies. When Sony
released open marketing for VHS but reserved BETA they refused to
allow any X-rated films to be made on BETA. In the first year over 80%
of all sales for home movies were adult, and since BETA din't offer
adult movies people purchased VHS, even though BETA was better
quality. Almost every decent DVD player offers multi-cam view options,
even though very few non-adult movies have the multi-cam ability.
As for the distinction between art and pornography, this is very often
in the eye of the beholder. I do not consider throwing paint into the
air and letting a jet engine splash it on canvas art, and yet those
paintings sell for several thousand dollars. So please, as an "artist"
realize that art takes many different forms and definitions.

In conclusion perhaps you should have simply checked everything out
and asked the adult movies option to be turned off rather than just
leave the children with the TV as a babysitter. Oh, and as a former
traveling businessman the only soft porn I ever rented was the Pamela
and Tommy video simply because I wanted to see what all the hoopla was
about.

Let's see.....you left your children alone in a hotel room and they
ordered an adult movie. I don't care if you were gone for 10 minutes
or 10 hours. What possible excuse could you have to do this? Why
couldn't one of you stay with the kids? Hmmmm, so who's to blame for
this? You.

And, you want Hilton to set up rooms especially for people with kids
(because we all know the world revolves around you) because you didn't
properly supervise your children or take it upon yourself to have the
hotel lock out the channels.

Then, you have the nerve to ask the hotel to refund your money when
you acknowledge that your children ordered the movie, appropriate or
not. Had you been supervising them properly they wouldn't have had
the opportunity to make that 6.95 mistake. Why should the hotel pay
for your error? They were being kind to refund your money. All you
had to do was ask that the channels be blocked on check-in, but that
would require you to be the parent and not Hilton.....

Finally, should something have happened to your children I suppose we
would be reading a complaint letter about Hilton's lack of security.

Dear Hilton,

My name is Junior Edwards and my mom wrote to you when I was 11. I'm
now a businessman and I stayed at your hotel. I turned on the
television to watch some pornography, but I couldn't find anything
about waffles. I think your hotel should show waffle porn. Who wants
to look at nekkid women when you can watch the syrup running down a
buxom Belgian waffle?

My trip was ruined because of this. I want my money back. There is
no record of me ever staying there, but I really did. The room was a
million dollars, for true. In addition, I think I should be able to
get the presidential suite whenever I'm at any of your properties.
For free.

You should also take down all the art in the hotel and put up pictures
of my mommy getting dressed. She has a Master Degree in Art History
and knows that her naked body is more beautiful than any Matisse, Van
Gogh, or Rembrandt. Venus de Milo? Hah! Dora!

It would also been good to have art pictures of my great-grandma
taking a bath and my cousin, who works at The Chili's, showing you
exactly how he reheats the tortillas.

I was quite offended that you have an "H" on the soap. My name is
Edwards, which begins with an "E." Which you'd know if you were as
educated as I. Witch ewe arr knot.

Lastly, I know that the maid stole my sack of diamonds. All maids do
that. I know because when I was a maid, while in college, I stole
like there was no tomorrow. Since that time, I've made it up to
society by fixing elections for neocon wins.

Don't even get me started on the fact that the pillows tasted nothing
like strawberries! They should, you know. Oh, right. You don't know
because you're not as smart as me. Or my mommy.

Sincerely,

Dr. Junior Edwards, Esq., pH D, PE, DDS, LMNOP

Dora,
How blind could you be to think that an 11 year old, and even an 8
year old do not know what pornography is? They ARE at that curious
age. Its ridiculous that you seriously think that your children are
good angels and need to be shielded from harm. They will grow up to be
deviants and have a false outlook on the world.

I agree with the others on this. As someone who has ordered stuff in
hotels (games, movies, even porn!) its not a matter of just "pushing
random buttons." Im sure your kids can read, and they HAVE to read the
tv to find out what to do next and what buttons to push. And, $6.95
for a porno? In a Hilton?! Thats super cheap. Someone else mentioned
it must have been a softcore, and I agree with them. Cause, the porn
in the Las Vegas Hilton was well over $9.99.

You need to sit down with your kids, explain to them that what they
saw is not appropriate for children, only grown ups can watch it.
Don't make it seem like its a bad thing, because it isnt. Then explain
to them that you will need to take the money from their allowance
(maybe split it in half) to pay for the movie, and let them earn it
back, maybe by doing extra chores or something.

Im not going to say youre a bad parent. I was left home alone when I
was your kids age. I was a latchkey kid. No one has any right to judge
anyone else on their parenting skills. But you, dear Dora, need some
improvement. Ive read your Chili's letter, and I am flabbergasted at
how you think the world revolves around your precious family.

I hope one of these days, you and your husband grow up and realize
there's more to life than complaining about waffles at a lunch/dinner
oriented restaurant and pornos at a hotel. Because you are portraying
this type of behavior onto your children and we dont need anymore
idiots in the world.

Going by the replies of others (what you get for $6.95) I'm wondering
if this was an "R" movie. Just by reading your two letters I've come
to the conclusion that you've lead a pretty sheltered life.

Anyway your incident reminds me of a South Park episode "The Return of
the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers" where the kids
accidentally get their hands on the video "Back Door Sluts 9". "I
want my precious....". Best episode I've ever seen especially when
the parents try to explain to the kids what the parents think their
kids saw on the video. I can't repeat it here -- TOS violation.

If you have an 11 year old, he knows well and good what he was
watching. Your 8 year old might even know as well. The fault here lies
on your children for chosing the "ADULT MOVIES" (can your children not
read?) and not on the Hilton for placing them in the right section.

We have received your suggestion and we think it is a good one. We
have architects working on designing the "business only" rooms, and
they have a few questions:

1. Should a a BETA player station be provided in case the business
person brings their own vintage material?

2. Should the beds be round? Water? Heart shaped? Red sheets?

3. Should porn musak be piped into these rooms?

4. Should a complimentary "toy" collection be included next to the
shampoo and shoeshine cloth basket? (the staff is concerned there
would be a high rate of restocking required).

My ex-husband used to work for a satellite tv service, and I can't
tell you how many times he said people would call, disputing adult
movie fees that showed up on their bill. After explaining just how
many steps the user needed to go through before the movie would
actually come on, most people conceded that it couldn't have been

I replied to your Chili's letter and I was very crude toward the way
you and your family handled yourselves. I will admit that you did not
complain in this letter at all and did in a way make you seem human.
But the rest of the world does not want to hear about how you would
run things if it were up to you. Just let businesses do what it is
they do, they seem to know what they're doing considering they are
making a lot of money and don't need you butting in and trying to tell
them how to run things. The one point I STRONGLY disagree on you with
is that "the majority of the American public does not approve of
(pornography)" That is completely false, while you may THINK that you
are right, you are very wrong. Pornography is a MULTI-BILLION dollar a
year industry. So you are very wrong with that. While I may not be a
parent, I disagree on how you are raising your kids. You are showing
them what not to do and how to handle yourself in public (Chili's).
Now your making it seem that certain forms of sex are wrong. They are
going to watch pornography or practice those types of acts in the
future, with you around or not. It's better to expose them at a
younger age, just based on how society is now. Sex is happening at a
younger age, so teach them younger. You just need to find better
things with your time than write companies letters of complaint,
because that's what your showing your children are right.

I have traveled a lot and stayed in many hotels. The Adult movies
always require extra controls on the remote and extra fees for
accessing them. I just don't understand how her kids could have
"accidentally" come accross one of these movies.

In any case, it's up to the parents to check out the environment they
are puting their kids into.

This is simply a case of a parent wanting to bubble-wrap the world to
keep her kids safe because she does not think to take responsibility
to do it herself.

Good Letter. You showed them the errors of their ways and at the same
time added a new installment on PFB.

Since you got your refund, I'm sure you're happy.

What isn't sitting well with me is why the authorites weren't
contacted?

I think if this happened the way you say it did, a police report
should have been filed, because other people's eleven and eight year
olds might not be so well equipped to deal with what they witnessed
(while mom and dad were where?) and it would help it not happen to
other's kids.

While usually I just like to let management know, in this case, I
think someone should have let the police know too...all the porn I've
seen has harsh FBI warnings against just this sort of thing.

I wonder why the authorities weren't called?

Including a few that say "If you are over 18 press" whatever number.
You Son COULD NOT have just "Turned on the TV and got Porn" She told
me that loads of PARENTS tell them at the front desk (where she works)
that "We have children, can you please lock out the adult channels?"
It only takes a few seconds when you ask. Also, she said the the PORN
movies cost starting at $9.99. But she also said the there are loads
of Soft-Core on the regular movie channels. Was it perhaps one of
thoes? Not a Hard-Core one.

Personally, I would not leave two young children, no matter how mature

yes, Ms. Dora, an instance recently did come up.

As for pornography on the television, can you tell us that your
children figured out a way to order porn? It sounds like to me they
have had some knowledge of this, and if I were you, I would double
check the cable/satalite bill at home. You might also want to double

around than it is not a good idea to leave them alone in a hotel.
Especially if you don't know whether the neighbourhood is safe or not.
However if you go on vacation there frequiently, and both you and
your children know the area well, than I find no problem with that, as
long as the state/provincal law allows an eleven year old to be left
alone. In some states and in many parts of Canada it is not illegal
to leave your eleven year old alone, however it is illegal for your 11
year old to act as a babysitter over your eight year old, which is
exactely what he was doing if you left the hotel room for a while. It
is on thing to run down and get something, but another thing to drive
away from the hotel and leave your eight year old with an 11 year old
babysitter. You did not say whether you left the hotel or not so I
won't call you on that.

However your 11 year old, or maybe even your eight year old ordered
the porn. You talked to them abot what they were seeing which was
good of you. However as a lesson to the child that ordered the porn,
you should have punished them by taking the money from them. There
was no way for your children just to stumble on the porn, there are
many steps required to order it. At 11 your child is curious and
wants to explore new things, he has probably heard of porn and wanted
to know what it was. I am not concerned about the fact that he
ordered the porn, what I would be more concerned is the fact that he
knew that you would have to pay for the porn and that he ordered
something that you would be charged extra for without asking you
first. At eleven I am pretty sure he understood that you would be
charged for $6.95 yet he ordered the porn without asking you if you
were willing to pay for it. Ofcourse you would have said no but still
a child should be taught not to order anything that will cost their
parents extra money unless their parents tell them it is all right to
do so.

I however was thinking on the same lines as you that they should lock
out all porn selections and let the guest request them. Some people
mentioned that this may be embarassing for some people to ask that the
porn channels be unlocked. Perhaps there is a half way to approach
this, such as all porn channels and R rated movies are blocked unless
a special code is put into the TV before ordering them. This should
be inclused in the paper work that they give to the adult and remain
with the adults at all times so children do not get access to the
porn. This way the guests can still order their porn needs through
privacy and it is not easily avaibable to children.

So obviously this woman does not get out of the house much because
almost EVERY hotel room I have EVER stayed in, and that is a
considerable amount, from the cheapest of the cheap motel 6, to the
high end four seasons all have the option of "adult" pay per view
movies. The hotel chain I stay at most frequently IS the hilton family
of hotels and almost EVERY one of those says in the guest services
book that all you need to do is contact the front desk or guest
services to block out the adult entertainment!!! Very simple, take
some responsibility, it was YOUR child that ordered it, you should not
be angry or complaining to Hilton, you SHOULD be angry with YOUR
child!!!

As for you leaving your children alone in a hotel room in a strange
city, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!!!! A Hilton does NOT provide
the level of safety your own home would, and although most hotels do a
good job of providing decent security, it IS a public building, and
EVERYONE is allowed in, and if you do some simple research you will
see that Hotel/motel crimes are actually quite high!!!

How things have changed! If I had ordered porn in a hotel room (or

me on the spot. They would have been far too embarrassed to complain
to the hotel and on a public forum about it. I would have never done
such a thing because I was taught respect and knew right from wrong.

Well you leave an eleven year old in the room with no parental
supervision and a chance to see porn on TV what do you expect. When
we went to BC last year our dad left me and my brother alone in the
room while he went to the bank I was 12 and my brother was 13. We
probably could have chose to watch the porn, but we chose not to
because we knew that they would charge extra for it and we have
respect for our parents who already paid for the hotel room. It tells
you right there that you are charged extra to watch movies.

Some of you have made some big mistakes. I don't even know where to
begin.

The part at the end of my letter was not sent to Hilton. I added it
for sharing only. Some of you accuse me of being stupid, even if you
don't use that word, and then make stupid mistakes by assuming that I
included that part. I even said that it was added for Planet
Feedback, but you're so determine to jump down my throat that you
ignore that.

Lady Mac invents some law about child endangerment. I don't know what
state you live in Lady, but kids that are 11 babysit all of the time.
My kid does not, but others do. Do you really get a baby sitter for
your 12 year old when you leave the house? That's junior high.

You all make comments about waffles because you have nothing better to
say. Yes, I did write a letter about my child requesting waffles.
Clearly those of you that keep talking about waffles didn't actually
read my letter because if you really read it, you would understand.

I keep seeing comments about my husband's salary. When I said he
makes three times a waitress, I was guessing. Kill me for that.
Three times or ten times or what ever. Doesn't matter, okay? The
point was that he's worked hard and makes a good living. I know that
a lot of people do. But I know from my own experience, people that
wait tables are either in school or are uneducated. That doesn't mean
stupid, but it means uneduated. It is my experience that people that
are lucky to be educated and then apply themselves can do well in
life. That was the only reason I mentioned my husband and his
salary.

I mention my art history degree, as I said, because it says a little
about who I am. People share information about themselves all of the
time. In this letter, its high relevant because I'm used to the naked
body and don't find it offensive. What I have a problem with is a
family hotel showing people engaged in sex acts on the television. As
a parent, it is my right to refuse access to that information to my
children, just as it is my right to teach my children to cherish the
human form. They see me naked, but not in a sexual way. I see them
naked, but not in a sexual way. The people in pornography are in a
sexual way.

I don't know why any of you are accusing me of not being a good
parent. Maybe all of you with children never leave them alone, even
for a second. I think some of you must be liars, since it's
impossible to keep your eyes on your child 24 hours in a day. Anyone
here ever leave their 11 year old child in the kitchen while you use
the bathroom or answer the phone? If so, according to you, that's a
neglectful parent because the 11 years old might turn on the over or
use a knife. Would I leave my 8 year old on a city street corner
alone? Of course not. Leaving my children in a hotel room is not
unsafe.

Who knew that a child could access pornography in a hotel? Not a
hotel frequented by hookers, but by regular people. By what some of
you say, I guess that hotels should just leave loaded guns around the
lobby or have live sex acts in the halls because its all my fault
because I'm the parent. I take responsibility for my children, but I
cannot do that when hotels put pornography on the televisions. I
cannot do that if they leave loaded guns in the rooms. I just can't.
And none of you could, either.

You say that the public likes pornography. Look at the studies and
the polls. Most people believe in God, go to church, and don't want
pornography in their neighborhood. Can any of you show me a place
where the majority of Americans say they love pornography? No. Its
big business because people who watch it spend a lot of money on it.
Or maybe I should say that some of the people are charging their
companies for it. Yes, that's right. When you buy soap for your
family, you're paying for some sales person to watch pornography or
maybe even buy a hooker for a customer. It happens all of time, I'm
sure. And no, wise guys, my husband isn't in sales and doesn't travel
on business so no making up junk about him that isn't true.

If you like to watch pornography, that is your right. I don't want to
stop you. If you want to show it to your children, that's your
decision. However, there's no reason for my child to use a television
remote to turn it on in a hotel. If someone wants pornography, then
can ask for it. If you're embarassed to ask, then clearly you know
it's wrong. It's like abortion. People say that abortion is a hard
decision. It's a hard decision because it's murder. If you really
think that killing a child is acceptable, it wouldn't be a hard
decsion because you've already decided that it's acceptable to kill.

Mostly, I don't understand why some of you make up stuff about me and
my family that isn't true. If you want to disagree with me, stick to
the facts. But when you start saying that as if they are true, when
they are not, it just makes you look stupid.

The Chili's recognized their mistake and I'm sure Hilton will, too.
And those of you that made fun of me can just go into your basements
and watch your porn. With your kids because, as you claim, you never
let them out of your sight. Never know what might happen when your
kids gets out of bed and wanders into your liquor cabinets.

Dora has missed an important concept in our adult world. It's called
"Parental Responsibility". You CHOSE to leave your children
unattended in the hotel room. I don't buy the "for a few minutes"
excuse; but I digress. 11 yr olds are quite adept at electronics, I
have a 12 yr old girl and she programmed my new phone. Suffice it to
say; ordering a porn movie is not a 1 click function. I'm beginning
to wonder if you ordered it and despite your husband's $6.00/hr salary
decided not to pay for it. I enjoy porn as much as the next
person-notice I didn't say "businessman". If I did order it; I would
pay for it and not blame it on my 11 yr old. Learn to parent!

Reply

by Sava Posted Tue November 28, 2006 @ 3:55 PM

First off - what pressing matter required both you and your husband to
leave the kids attended, even for a "few minutes"? A trip to the ice
or vending machine? Forgot something in the car? Surely ONE of you
could have handled that! Why leave the kids unattended at all? Even
if they hadn't picked porn, they certainly could have opted a new
release movie or something, and you'd still get charged. Also - $6.95
for a porn movie? Really? The porn movies I've seen even at cheap
places like Microtel cost more than that! But, I digress.

Did you know you can ask for a block to be put on ALL movie purchases
unless you give the say-so? They institute policies like that just
for people traveling with kids, so no unauthorized purchases are made
to the room.

Bottom line is this: YOU left your kids unattended, that is NOT the
hotel's responsibility. If you're not a prude, then surely the fact
that some hotels offer porn movies in their ordering list isn't a
shock to you. If you didn't scroll through the movie list and check
that out yourself - which I ALWAYS do when traveling with my children,
and my parents always did that when traveling with my brother and me
also - that's your fault.

And why assume that the "majority" of the American public doesn't
approve of "this sort of thing"? Obviously, the majority of Americans
DO approve - porn is a big business and money-maker, perused often by
folks who claim to find it disgusting, yet behind closed doors, they
have huge collections. Not saying you are like that, but loosen up!
You're only upset because you slacked a bit by leaving the kids
unattended. And something else - this may not be the first sex/nudity
your kids have seen without you present. My brother got ahold of
quite a bit of porn material before he turned 13, despite the good
monitoring skills of my parents. Parents' guidelines and careful
monitoring are NOT foolproof!

And for the record: I LIKE PORN! :D I keep it locked up (literally)
where my kids can't find it, and don't watch it when they're home,
even if they're asleep, just as a precaution. But my husband and I
enjoy it, and we're not "perverts" or any other label you wish to
apply! Too much information, sorry...but someone has to say it!

Dora....I think that maybe you ought to consider giving up trying to
make the world a better place (in your own odd, contrived way) via
PlanetFeedback. While this letter is certainly more well written than
your "Kissing at the Chili's" letter (how could it not be?), it seems
that your world view, thoughts and beliefs do not render you fully
able to cope with the real world. Your "businessman" comments are just
solid evidence of your narrow viewpoint and stereotypical beliefs. I
am sure that many woman, couples, singles, etc. also enjoy a little
porn now and then and to suggest that it is just there for the
bussinessmen of the world is obtuse and archaic.
Furthermore, if your 11 year old is mature enough to need his own menu
while dining out, I will bet you dollars to doughnuts (or waffles, as
the case may be)that he was 186% certain of what was going on with the
porn on TV and I have no trouble believing that he knew exactly what
he was doing when he pushed the buttons to obtain the same.
Perhaps you ought to spend little more quality time at home and less
time dining out and traveling, as it seems that your children (or at
least your 11 year old) need some extra guidance.
By the way, just so you do not think that I am picking on you and
being negative, I am very pleased that your high earning husband
managed to not blurt out some four letter words. Well done!

For such an educated person to not realize that hotels offer adult

sees that you're a chronic complainer.

and - you seem to be so "proud" that your husband didn't use a 4
letter word . . . maybe he got a $1.00 raise from his $6.00 an hour
job.

Dora - - you and your family have issues, don't you? Chili's doesn't
serve waffles and never has - - and your husband's behavior certainly
set a good example for those kids of yours. Now you leave said
children alone in a hotel room "only for a few minutes" and within
that time the eleven year old was able to navigate the TV to
pay-per-view and select a porn movie to watch. Come on - - you left
the kids alone for much longer that "a few minutes" and the fact that
an eleven year old would select porn when there are so many other
selections available is the most disturbing of all.

Sounds to me like you need to take a little responsibility for your
children and also tell that husband of your's to shut his trap and set
a better example.

Happy Holidays!

Dear Ms. Edwards,

We received your letter and have looked into the details. First, our
doors lock from the inside, not the outside. We're not sure how you
locked your children INSIDE the room. As far as we know, there is no
way to keep a child from leaving a room if they don't want to.

Second, we cater to a wide variety of audiences. You may find this
hard to believe, but we actually have women (gasp!) here on business.
Not just "businessmen." And, hold your hat, some of them order porn.
For real.

Third, $6.95 is the charge for a REGULAR movie. Our adult selections
are higher. Had we known that you were undercharged...

OK, so maybe we'll change our policies. But only because it's you.
From now on, we're going to ask everyone that checks in if they want
to watch porn. We'll ask them if they want to watch "straight" stuff
or if they want it a little kinky. That way, we can tailor the
channels just to their particular desires or fetish.

To avoid confusion, we'll hang signs on all the doors. "Family" rooms
will have only Noggin and the Disney Channel. Nothing else.
"Businessmen" rooms will allow only people on business who like porn.
"Foot fetish inside" will also be clearly marked.

For people that don't speak English, we'll have a little card that
will be presented at check-in with little pictures of the various
choices. The guest only need to circle a smiley face for those sex
acts they want to see. A sad face will be used for those sex acts not
desired by the guest.

One of our Washington, DC hotels tried something like this recently
and, wouldn't you know it, but movies about Senate pages kept getting
smiley faces.

So, Ms. Edwards, we thank you for writing to us. When we went to
credit your Hilton Honors account to give you a thanks for writing to
us, we noticed that your husbands account had been credited bonus
points for the movies HE ordered on his trips.

Sincerely.
Hilton

P.S. We like PlanetFeedback, too. But not waffles.

Please explain how your art history degree proves you're not a "prude

Methinks you just like mentioning it.

"I'm adding a note at the bottom for Planet Feedback. I read what you
wrote about me in my letter to the Chili's and I think you are all
wrong."

I think that I would look good in a speedo. I'm not right in thinking
that, but both you and I are free to our opinions, however horribly
misguided they may be.

"This letter will show you that I am not a bad person."

True, although I am starting to wonder about your kids. First waffles,
and now pornography? You might start looking into military schools.

"I did not say anything about my money. I only mention my art history
degree because it shows that I am not a prude about nudity."

I'm starting to think that you mention your art history degree in
every conversation you have. "Hey, Bill, how's it going? I'm fine,
thanks for asking. I have a degree in art history. Well, see you
later!"

"I also want to say that at no time did my husband say any four letter
words."

Well, be sure to give him a doggy treat for being such a good boy.

"Have a nice day."

Hey, thanks. You do the same.

I wonder if the 11 year old ordered waffles from room service. Dora
you're missing a great oppurtunity. Your 11 year old waffle obsessed
son could have gotten waffles from room service.

Don't come to Chicago please by the way ever. The Cubs are confused
enough. They don't need people demanding they play football.

by Harleycat Posted Tue November 28, 2006 @ 11:18 AM

OMG, you left an 8 and 11 yr old alone in a hotel room. How could you
possibly do that? Besides things that can happen in the room, like a
fire, what happens if someone knocks on the door. You told them to
lock it, so. Some of these pervs are very good at convincing kids to
open the door. "Mommy sent me". "I have a message from Daddy".

That being said, every hotel I've ever stayed in requires a number of
steps to access any premium channel. Your kids went through all these
steps. If it was my 12 yr old step-daughter, I'd slap her hand and
take the $6.95 out of her allowance.

Also, hotels usually have instructions for the use of the TV, phone,
etc. That would tell you how to block the porn or even the regular
premium channels.

Dora, please consider staying home until you and your family learn how
to travel. Children don't always get their own way in restaurants and
should not be left alone in hotel rooms. If you feel you must go out
on your own when you are traveling, hire an au-pair. I'm sure you and
your well-to-do husband can afford one.

The hotel desk clerk issued the right response. It is the parents
responsibility to ask these channels be blocked at check in. Why
should the hotel be loosing a potential revenue source just because
some people do not want them? I think more people would be more
embarrased asking the front desk to turn on the porn channels if they
chose to watch them.

Using your theory that things should not be available unless asked,
your hotel stay would be miserable. I suppose you would have the hotel
pool drained until someone asked to use it. I suppose you would rather
have the restaurant closed until someone wanted to have something to
eat. Do you see these things are a matter of convience for those
people that choose to use them. It is the same with the movie
channels. It is easier to have the hotel staff turn off something
rather than turn them on for each customer that requests them.

by RedheadWGlasses Posted Tue November 28, 2006 @ 10:38 AM

I'm guessing that the front desk employees don't think that the best
place to discuss a guest's likelihood of wanting porn movies is AT THE
FRONT DESK. Think of the discomfort and embarrassment all around,
every darn time.

I'm also guessing that your 11-year-old is typical, in that he has a
high comfort level with electronics. You can't just get porn
automatically (and be billed for it) by turning on a channel. There's
a process one goes through in order to select a porn movie, like
pay-per-view, but for hotel rooms and with satellite television. Or
so I've heard. *cough*

I really agree with LadyMac.

I would be more concerned that of all the channels available, your 11
and 8 year old bypassed everything else that was on to watch porn.

Dora, you do realize that any company that gets letters via
PlanetFeedback does not see the comments left. Your afterthought on
the letter should have been better left as a comment. Now they're
going to wonder whether or not you're a habitual complainer and
probably not take this complaint as seriously.

With that aside, yes, I agree that there should be some sort of
responsibility with the hotel as far as movies are concerned.

But... (and you knew this was coming)

You cannot put the full blame on the hotel entirely without taking
some responsibilty yourself. You are an adult. You know that kids are
going to want to explore, press buttons and try to get away with
mischeif. I think you've also forgotten than until your children reach
the age of maturity (most places it's 18), you are responsible for
their actions. Personally, I would have left the charge on to remind
you to pay better mind to your children and not leave them unattended.
Heaven forbid they'd gotten into something flammable or if there'd
been a mini fridge in the room. Who knows what could have happened
then. Would you have blamed the hotel for that too, should something
have happened?

Before you go to judge me, I have raised kids. I spent a good amount
of time with my sister and various other relatives taking care of
their children. Would that I could have children of my own, but I
can't.

The fact remains that there were options that you could have used as
soon as you found out there were pornographic movies on the tv. A
simple call to the front desk would have solved this problem. But I'm
sure you'll remember this for next time when you travel with your
children.

Just had to add that last paragraph huh? You just can't stand the
fact that most everyone thinks you're a stuck up snob and your husband
is a no class loser.
You must've been so proud he didn't swear this time. Or maybe it was
just because it wasn't some poor little waitress and someone that just
might take him out behind the woodshed for it.

I guess you shouldn't trust your children as much as you do.

That with all the problems your family has with waffles and now hotel
porn movies, perhaps you should just stay home, draw the drapes,
deadbolt the doors, and never come out. The world is not going to
change to suit you and your holier than thou family...so get over
yourselves already!! You can stay home have all the waffles you can
eat and watch bambi over and over.

You left your 11 and 8 year old children in a hotel room, in a strange
city, alone? As a parent of a 12 year old, I find that repulsive.

It is your obligation to parent, not Hilton's. It seems to me that
they have a mechanism in place to avoid these channels. You had the
option to a) block them at check in or b) block them from your tv.
You did not avail yourself of either option and instead allowed your
children to watch smut. Parent of the year award for you....
(sarcasm).

Two words... personal responsibility. Try it sometime.
