Recently an online porn company contacted me for a Perl job. I am currently looking for work, but I politely declined, citing my uncomfortableness with the adult content. The money was good and the location was nice: South Beach in Miami.
I am curious about geeks working in porn. Porn seems like a big, steady business. But I wonder about the repercussions of listing a porn company on a resume:
Would you face discrimination from future employers?
Would other geeks look down at you?
Would your former stint at a porn company hinder you from finding work in a foreign land? (China, for example, imprisons porn website operators.)
And what's it like at a porn company? Are the programmers exposed to the porn?
Would you have considered taking the programming job? Why or why not?
