One of the most difficult email's I've ever written

Hello XXX,

Sorry in getting back to you so late. To be completely honest, I'm quite apprehensive about entering a career that is, or semi-involved in marketing internet pornography. I understand that the company does not deal exclusively with pornography, but I'm sure a good majority of the revenue is from that source. That may seem a little hypocritical considering my current employment (not int porn), but that's my own decision that I deal with...

...I thank you for the consideration and hope you do not view me as ungrateful for the opportunity you have given me. I am quite sure you will locate the the proper candidate for the postion.



I've been trying to hit the SEND button for the past 15 minutes. I finally got a co-worker to do it for me. The opportunites I could have had (ie, the big convention in Las Vegas), and the amount of money I could've made. Damn!

Am I an idiot for not taknig this? Yes.

Will I regret this decision? Prolly.

Have you ever had a similar opportunity avail like this and not take it?

Given the fact that morals are no longer relevant in this world and porn is everywhere I don't know why someone can't get over the content and just take the job if it's so good.

Internet porn companies don't burn rainforests or cause civil wars. Plus the stories you'll acquire make great icebreakers at dinner parties.

Not like internet porn burns rainforests or causes civil wars.

but if you're a devout catholic it kills millions of babies.

Well, if you're this anxious about just accepting the job, imagine what it would be like to have to actually deal with this on a day to day basis.

You probaby made the right choice. Who cares about money and trips to Vegas when you're uncomfortable with what you do for a living?

Yes, but it kinda ruins your resumé in a sense. Imagine a potential employer asking what you did for work between 20XX and 20XX?

I'm sure the job would affect you after a while, Farm girls fucking horses, or shit-eating diapered men involved in felching contests isn't what I plan to stay late at night to work on.

Porn just isn't taken seriously, nor professionally in the world of business, no matter how much revenue it attains. Sure, the money is good. It's damn good, but at what cost?

More salary :)

Its true, once you enter the porn circuit, you more or less stuck there unless you can manage to erase it from your resume history.

It really depends on what kind of porn the company produces. And what is the name of the company? If the company's name wasn't overtly pornographic, you could still put it on your resume and just omit the part about the cow fucking and shit eating diapered men.

So.... how'd this job get offered to you? Where can I find a (non-performing) work in porn?

Yes, I hate my new job too. And I'd have no qualms about working in porn. I'm terriblyeager to work in an industry I'm even remotely interested in--porn sure interests me.

I recently had a similar dillema (not porn tho) but unlike yourself I chose tpo accept the offer! So as of the second week of February I will no longer be employed w/ DJ Depot. The best part about my decision was the support I got from people I currently work with. I am sure this new position (although new and probably will be awkward for a couple months) will be very rewarding. No bad blood between myself & the Depot, I will continue to do business with them from the outside!

PS. SHOULD'VE TAKEN IT MAN!
