This’ll likely make me sound like a lunatic, but when I go abroad from the UK, hedgerows are one of the top 3 things I miss (the other two being beer and tea). They’re just so ubiquitous when travelling here, and they make the world feel a bit smaller.

As a wildlife photographer I probably take 75% of my photos of birds in hedges. I don’t have to camp out for hours - I just walk along the hedgerows aimlessly.

Also, if other countries don’t have hedges, what happens to the grotty pornography magazines that dwell natively in the hedgerows? Are they in some sort of meta-state of quasi-existence? A theoretical hedgerow porn mag?




For those who are confused, “woods porn” is apparently a thing.

Of course it's a thing... Where else did you guys find porn before you got modems?


Billy's dad's garage stash.


Wow that went off on a tangent


It’s a thing. For some reason, country folk like to stash thier porn mags in hedges.


Probably a reference only the British would get. Look up 'hedge porn'.


One of my earliest memories was on a road trip to the Devon with my parents. The family got out of the car and went up to a hedge to try and pet a cow, and there were porno magazines propped up along the hedge as far as the eye could see.


Gifts for the fair folk


Don't be alarmed, now.

In other countries porn mags tend to nest in the woods. In japan i understand the endemic porn mags generally live under bridges, more rarely in small bushes.


Come to Switzerland, then. We have nice hedges, excellent beer, and... Right, did I mention the nice hedges? :)


mountains.. glorious mountains and lakes


I live in Australia, which doesn't have hedgerows but does have large areas of native forest, normally called the bush. The bush (at least used to) contain unusually large amounts of pornographic magazines


I really am having a hard time understanding this comment


In days of old, there was porn in the woods.

It is known.
