It’s been a recurrent theme. It started when I accepted to develop live adult chat websites and I remember asking my wife if she had problems with it. She didn’t think twice about telling me to do what I thought was best, but added that I should keep this for myself.
“If people ask you about your job, just tell them about your work with mainstream websites. They don’t have to find out that you also design cheap phone sex sites.”
Hers was the typical “don’t ask don’t tell” kind of answer and I have been following her advice ever since. Very few of my friends know that I help a very sexy phone sex owner with web development and job also involved web promotion for her phone sex chat activities. 🙂
The interesting thing about this subject is that if you tell people about it, say you’re sitting with a group of friends and you let it be known that you do work in the adult industry, it is likely that most people within that group will feign shock and might even exhibit a tacit disapproval of the kind… “how can you work in such a perverted industry…”
“Confess” this on a one in one basis, when it’s just you and one of them, of course you’ll get the expected response that they are shocked, but then, immediately after that, he, she’ll bombard you with question and in so many cases, you get the feeling that they are just a tad intrigued, and even turned on but that.
Such is the world we live in though. People will often say what society expects of them, rather than what they really think. It’s that politically correct thing, isn’t it?
