One time when I was a kid, my parents came home to find that the blinds in the computer room had been drawn and the computer they housed inside it turned off. 

It was peculiar, because neither of the two situations ever occurred in our home, especially in this room, which got great light and looked out onto a wonderful lawn on a quiet, comfortable street. 

But I was then 12 and had been watching porn that day while they’d been out. When they asked what I’d been doing, I told them I’d looked at a family photo album and needed to shut the blinds so that the images wouldn’t attract any glare.

Point is, you’ll lie through your teeth to convince the individuals you answer to that you were doing anything other than staring at smut, but they pretty much always know. As the comedy duo Key and Peele points out, if it’s not painfully obvious by the guilty look on your face, it’s quite evident in the fact that your entire Web history has been deleted and its cookies and caches have been wiped clean. 

“But it’s OK if you look at porn. Every guy does,” they say. Most women are perfectly OK with it, “as long as its not that weird stuff,” like horses and stuff that’s, well, “worse than horses.”

If it is, you might want to take a lesson from this recent video’s top comment, from a YouTuber named Nqorule336: “I’m ready, incognito mode, volume set at 10%, headphones with one ear popped out.”

Now that’s someone who knows how not to get caught.
