Millions Of People Are Watching Porn On Work Devices, According To Study

Share

I’m going to be honest here – I’ve masturbated to porn quite a lot on my work laptop.

In my defence, my laptop at home is ridiculously slow (due to all the porn I’ve watched on it) and in my opinion, if you’re going to entrust a phone or laptop to a horny young male such as myself, you should expect me to stare at a bit of vag every now and then when I inevitably get bored of doing work.

Ordinarily, I might feel a tad guilty about defacing work property, but after it’s emerged that 1.5 million Brits admit to watching porn on work devices, I feel absolutely fine about it.

The poll was conducted by mobile phone insurer, Insurance2go to find out what the nation uses their work devices for, and unsurprisingly, porn was one of the main uses (besides doing actual work of course).

As well as watching porn, the research also found that 1.3 million people sext from work phones whilst a further 850,000 of us take, store and send nudes on their work devices (which seems like playing with fire if you ask me).

Furthermore, an incredible 2.3 million of us have used a work device to cheat on a partner.

It’s really no surprise then that nothing ever seems to get done – we’re all too horny and sexed up to concentrate on doing our jobs.

The study found that as many as 65% of us use our work smartphones, tablets or laptops to engage in ‘extra-curricular’ activities, which may include watching YouTube, shopping online or playing games.

The poll also revealed that Scottish people are the most promiscuous, with one in 10 Glaswegians using a work phone to send explicit texts, whilst Edinburgh had the highest rate of adultery via work devices, with 11% sending suggestive messages to someone other than their partner.

“These days it’s no shock that the nation likes to have a quick browse of their social media feed from their work device, but some of these other activities are definitely questionable!” said Gary Beeston, sales and marketing director at Insurance2Go.

“Perhaps this won’t be a big deal to many managers, but aside from the risky nature of the activities people are conducting, there’s also the worry around the cyber security of employees’ devices due to dodgy website surfing, so it’s something that might need addressing.”

Watching pornography at work has become a serious issue in the last few years.

In 2015, three judges were sacked for allegedly viewing porn at work using official judiciary computers. Whilst the nature of the content wasn’t illegal, a disciplinary panel concluded that it was an “inexcusable misuse” of their IT accounts and “wholly unacceptable conduct”.

On the other hand, an insurance manager was sacked in January 2016 after he was found to have used his work laptop to watch hard-core pornography.

The man sued the company however, claiming that he watched the porn while on his lunch break, and since there was no specific policy which stated he couldn’t do that, he wasn’t breaking work rules.

The Commissioner in the hearing agreed and the man won £10,000 in damages.

Still, probably best to control your urges and just wait until you get home to bust a nut…
