help me with the most awkward situation ever!

Hey, I'm a 22 year old lady and I've lived with my boyfriend for 2 years. I used his laptop (on incognito!) to view, um, adult material while he was at work. Nothing too scandalous, and I was on reputable sites! But unfortunately, a virus-y spammy popup came up and completely froze his computer. I panicked and force shut it down (it's a Mac, if it matters) but I don't know his password to turn it back on and try to fix it!

 

He came home briefly and before he could get on his computer, I told him what had happened (and of course promised to pay to fix it if necessary). He's kinda mad about it (he's fine with me looking at porn, but apparently REALLY not fine with me doing so on his computer; he doesn't watch it himself). He went on his way, and I'd be fine if that were the end of the interaction, but now I STILL can't get on his computer to try to fix it! So, later, he'll have to log me in and, knowing how macs always leave everything up even after you shut them down, he'll have to stare at this all until we can get it fixed. We're super open about sex in every other respect, but we have an understanding that it's fine to use porn and have fantasies, but we generally prefer to keep it private.

 

Advice? Heeeelp me, I feel as if I'm going to melt from embarrassment.

I'm pretty sure that if you "Shut down" a mac rather than just placing it on standby, it won't keep things open.

 

I'd also be very surprised if you actually encountered a Mac virus in the wild on a porn site; it may have been a craftily-scripted popup, but generally people won't bother writing for Macs and I think they handle privilege escalation pretty well so you shouldn't be able to get too messed up just by visiting a website without running anything...

You live together and have probably smelt each others bathroom stinks. Seen each other in the morning, before brushing your teeth. Sleep together and been as physically intimate as humans can be. Are human.

 

Consider it another step in your intimacy. lol. How to handle embarrassing and somewhat annoying little issues that come up.

 

I don't think there is need to be embarrassed at all. But those are your feelings. I just wouldn't let them dominate here. Remember his sex face or something if you start to feel embarrassed. Diffuse the embarrassment and keep your humor about it.

 

It's probably something the two of you will joke about later on .

Not true. You can easily pop a MAC box with a simple JAVA 0-day ( there are many trust me ) through a drive by download. MAC security is crap, it's better than windows but not by much. But your probably right it was just a popup.

tell him "I was doing some research into what I could learn that would be super hot to try on you, honey...."

 

Haha!! Smooth.

 

This is an awkward situation. OP, going forward if you're going to watch p0rn on computers that do not belong to you, make sure you view the private browsing setting! That way, if the computer crashes it will not restore the session. Also, if you close the browser it will not restore the session.

 

I don't watch p0rn but I do read erotica occasionally. I only ever do so in private browsing. It would just be embarrassing for anyone to read that stuff! There is a huge disconnect between what I look up and what stuff I'm into in real life.. OP, at least it's your boyfriend who saw this. He's the person you can most likely laugh about it with, though there's a high probability he will tease you about it until the cows come home!

Totally agreed, this is another step for your relationship and will make you both more intimate
