Boy watched hardcore porn for 15 minutes before mum realised

BRITTANY Williams thought she had stumbled upon a bargain when she bought her four-year-old son a DVD of a children's Christmas tale about Santa and elves for just a $1.

The Auckland mum-of-two popped the DVD on for her little boy and went off to do a few things for 15 minutes.

But little did she know that not all was as it seemed with the supposed "kids" movie.

When she returned she was mortified to discover that her innocent young son had been watching footage of men and women having sex, using sex toys and full frontal nudity.

"It was a full-on raging porno from the 80s," she told the New Zealand Herald.

She said that the episode had scarred her little boy.

"At the time I told him someone had put the wrong DVD in the case and that I was sorry he had seen it," she said.

"Now whenever I get him a DVD he asks me, 'mum, is this going to be another naked DVD'?"

The owner of the Good2go dairy and video hire on Auckland's North Shore, Raj Patel, confirmed there was pornography on the DVD sold in the bin - but he maintained he had done everything he could for the customer.

"I have apologised to her and straight away - within five seconds - the DVD was broken and put into the bin," he told the Herald.

He added that there was no way of finding out how the DVD got dubbed as any number of people had the opportunity to over-ride it.

However, Brittany said she was not satisfied the store had done enough.

She claimed the store could have vetted the rental to intercept the work of a "sick" person recording pornography over a children's film.

"Someone has got out a kid's DVD and put their own thing on them. It's revolting. It's not okay."

Raj accused Brittany of bringing his business into disrepute and threatened legal action for approaching the media.

"If she is trying to say our business is at fault we are not at fault. We will take action against her for discriminating us."

She said she was concerned that other young children may inadvertently have seen the adult-only content.

From now on Brittany said she would vigilantly check every DVD before her son watched them.

Raj said this was the first time he had inadvertently sold a porn DVD.

"In 10,000 DVDs, I have never had a case like this since taking over the business six years ago."

He believes another customer had likely over-ridden the DVD, which dated back at least a decade.

Raj said no video rental store played returned videos, but instead checked for scratches and other damage.

He said his business had taken a moral stand against supplying pornographic movies by choosing not to sell them.
