Image you found out one of your children had decided to become a porn star. How would you react?
Would you be understanding and supportive, angry, or would you try and think of ways to embarrass them?
If you tend more towards the latter, then you are exactly like a mother and father who spotted their little lad rutting away in an adult movie and decided embarrassing him was the best course of action.
Sharing their tale to Reddit, the unnamed mum said her husband had unfortunately seen their child in one of the racy films he had been watching... while at work.
Replying to a threat about parents' reactions to discovering their children worked in adult entertainment, the mother wrote: "My son is actually in a few 'films' and has somewhat of a cult following (or so my husband tells me).
"It shocked me at first. Not in a negative way, but more 'This is the same person who once threw a golf club right at the girl he liked because he had absolutely no idea how to approach someone?'
"As to the question of when I found out, it was my husband who came across it. He rushed home excitedly to tell me.
"He was apparently looking at porn at work (because... why not, right?) and thought it was hilarious that he found a doppelganger of our son.
"Then he saw the tattoo we've both seen many times, and he found it even funnier.
"He wanted to do a big surprise reveal that we knew.
"He's the type of man who doesn't take like too seriously and just has a good laugh.
"I think if I hadn't met him, this kind of thing would have made me feel negative. But I find myself in the same boat. We just think it's funny more than anything.
"We haven't told our son yet. We decided to think about if it would affect him negatively. Him not telling us and all that.
"But I honestly don't know how long my husband can keep from pranking my son about it."
Let's hope for their son's sake that they decide to let him off and avoid the embarrassment.
Now, while the dad in the story above seems quite laissez-faire when it comes to when and where he watches porn, he should probably be more careful.
Another woman was left left somewhat red-faced when she realised she'd been piping the sounds of pornography into her neighbour's home while she was - let's say- relieving the pressure.
Although admittedly she didn't end up spotting a family member in the movie she was watching,
So yeah, be careful out there.
