NSFW Ask: So for programmers working at pornography companies building their websites and such, what is the culture like? I’d be really uncomfortable if my coworkers were just sitting around making small code edits and enjoying those types of videos all day. How do they prevent things like sexual harassment in the workplace?

    Sexual stuff becomes very not sexual, once you have to do anything related to it as daily work.

    @metamourge Yes. I am sorry if you planned to make a joke out of this, but this actually is not a super funny topic. It's work. It's a task.

    I once had to fix a big in a video platform's porn section. Fun times

    And yes, it's just work, you don't even get into the videos really. If anything it's annoying 😀

    Working on a porn site... Yes the line blurs with watching porn. However watching porn Does not cause sexual haressment. People being ass holes causes that.

    Yes, looking at a big php codebase at a porn company is entirely different from looking at a big php codebase at another company

    I've thought about that. No need to work with actual porn vids until you hit production, yeah?

    Imagine getting feedback on your work.. "OH I like the design but maybe make that cock a little bigger?"

    @Alice This is why I change from work attire into my birthday suit before doing anything lewd.

    @daveq But like if you’re testing fronted changes all day, and getting turned on by the videos, that’s what I’d worry about.

    @lunorian if some one can't control themselves that's their fault no one else to blame

    @daveq No one said someone else was to blame. My question was asking about the work culture and how it differs from other companies.

    @lunorian I just don't see why working for a porn company should make sexual haressment more likely

    @ihatecomputers You make a good point, you could replace a lewd logo and any videos with non-pornographic replacements. Guess it’d be different for the people adding the videos and for DevOps with the logo.

    @Alice the guy's like "sooo... uhhh... I guess you worked at a pornographic company, huh... did you happen to get gang banged at the office???"

    you know the guy, the one that gets excited like a dog with a ball when a female makes the slightest sex related comment.

    @Alice what's with this reaction? If you don't have experience with it yourself then you're talking out of your ass

    The camera men, directors, etc. don't walk around with boners or wet pussies all day, because they're dealing with porn all day and become desensitised. Why wouldn't IT guys be any different?

    Do you get any benefits like free subscription to the site? 🤔🧐

    I've found that a big part of what makes us excited about sexual intercourse is its scarcity. You should be alright if the persons working there are not dicks (pun intended).
    No really, porn is not a glamorous job so just make sure that your coworkers are not the leftovers of other industries (which depends on the company, if the pay is competitive that's not likely to be the case).

    The thoughts of being in a room with a lot of people, working on a porn website and trying not to get carried away gives me a mmmm migraine
