Thousands of parents across the UK are making startling discoveries about their teenage sons due to an unexpected side effect of the rise of internet pornography.
Storing treasured top shelf publications in various bedroom hidey-holes - only for them to be discovered by outwardly-outraged but secretly delighted parents - was once an essential ritual for any typical youth but the easy availability of internet porn has made this rite-of-passage a thing of the past.
However, whilst casually looking behind wardrobes and under mattresses parents are discovering caches of magazines on subjects as varied as caravanning, origami, pole fishing, classic tractors and beadwork. One astonished father discovered a dozen well-thumbed copies of The Economist carefully secreted amongst his son's collection of Kerrang! magazines. When confronted with the find the flustered youth protested that he was merely "curious".
Meanwhile the parents of a seventeen year old from Luton were delighted to discover that he'd kicked his two year smack habit to fund a lifetime subscription to Better Homes.
Sadly not every tale of discovery has had such a positive overture. A couple from South Wales were mortified to find that their son had developed a fanatical interest in The Spectator. After an ugly confrontation that required police intervention the young man was painfully seperated from the source of his obssession and is currently receiving counselling.
