Straight guy finds out coworker’s gay porn past, reacts in the best way

A straight office worker has asked sex advice columnist for help after his colleagues started ‘ridiculing’ a member of the team for his past in gay porn.

In his letter, published as part of Slate’s recurring ‘How To Do It’ feature, the author implies his colleague acted for BrokeStraightBoys, signing off ‘Former Broke Straight Boy.’

He writes that the porn his colleague acted in ‘does not line up with his apparent orientation. (He’s married to a woman).’

He furthermore continues: We’re a relatively small workplace, so this got around quickly. Our boss probably knows at this point. I worry about how this is going to affect him at work. At one point, I caught a couple co-workers sharing an image from one of the videos and joking about it, and I told them to stop. The thing is I don’t think he has any idea that people know.

He concludes: ‘Should I tell him? I don’t really care what he did when he was younger, and maybe he doesn’t care if people know, but I worry he will find out in an embarrassing way and it would be better if I told him privately.’

‘I say tell him what’s going on’

Responding, Slate’s Stoya and Rich praise the professional for ‘doing the right thing by telling your co-workers to stop joking or giggling about your co-worker’s past.’

The add such behaviour is ‘clearly inappropriate and maybe malicious’. They add the guy should, ‘if possible, pull your co-worker aside in a private space, I say tell him what’s going on. Let him know that you’re there if he needs an ally, or to talk, but also that there’s no pressure.’
