We all do it. Those delicious thoughts of a lunchtime tryst the boss’ sexy secretary… or the boss. Sexually coveting our officemates is as old as the office itself.
But it goes further. I came across an interesting poll today which found that fully 40% of both men and women masturbate to Facebook images of their workmates. That’s a lot… 2 in 5 people are getting off on pictures of the co-workers.
I suppose its the ability to see people that we know only professionally, in a relaxed and casual environment. Seeing that prim and proper accountant down the hall dressed up in weekend party wear. Or your cubicle-mate in there sweaty post workout glow. These images allow us to imagine the more fully erotic person that we don’t see at work but allow ourselves to imagine them to be.
To be honest – and maybe its because I’m naive – never imagined people doing this. And it makes me think of some thongs I’ve posted on Facebook and Insta. I’ve posted slightly racy Halloween pictures and also countless pictures of beach vacations, surfing and rock climbing. I had always been totally cool with colleague FB friends seeing me in a more relaxed persona… but I never thought for an instant they might get off on it. And lets be serious.. most of them are not getting off… I don’t delude myself. But I suppose some may be. I’m not sure I care if they do get off on images of my wife and I like this, but it has changed – a little bit – the thought process I’ll go through in deciding what to post,
