LinkNYC (previously) operates thousands of free WiFi Kiosks around the City. In addition to WiFi, the kiosks have an embedded tablet where anybody could make free phone calls, charge devices, surf the web… or watch porn.

LinkNYC plans to disable web browsing over the next 48 hours at the 400 internet kiosks it has installed around the city after residents in neighborhoods with the kiosks complained that people were turning them into virtual living rooms — or bedrooms — by pulling up chairs, watching movies, and even masturbating in broad daylight.

Similar to Rule 34, if you give somebody something that is capable of watching porn, they will watch porn.
