NSFW FTW: My Top 10 NSFW Posts

by Rachel on September 2, 2011

In honor of my SXSW panel picker proposal on having a job when you have an internet presence that is not safe for work, I thought I’d share my ten least safe for work posts today.

“Not safe for work” has always been a funny concept to me. I never label posts as such because, well…it depends on where you work…and how fast you can minimize your browser.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite not safe for your typical workplace posts and videos!


I’d Fuck a Republican — I Just Wouldn’t Vote for One

Why I Read Cosmo

The Reverse Cowgirl

Boomerang Boom Boom


Losing Your Virspinity

Bangover 911

I’ve Got a Heart On

What I Think About During Long Runs

Faking It

How to Vajazzle

If you’re not in a place where you can read them right now, enjoy over the long weekend when you aren’t at work!

Questions for discussion (we’re having such good ones already this week…let’s keep our streak alive!): Do you work somewhere where you worry about “NSFW” material on the web? How do you (or your employer) define NSFW? If you use social media, how do you keep things SFW? 

One last thing: today is the last day to vote for my proposal for SXSW Panel Picker — NSFW FTW: Being Authentic and Being Employed. Please give it a thumbs up on the SXSW site if you haven’t already!

Love it! Sometimes I think about how lucky we were to have someone like Bonnie to encourage us to really be ourselves. <3

Well I just had to click on the Republican one because I’m pretty much in the same boat!

Additionally, I happen to be a liberal New Yorker, raised in Omaha, Nebraska. And, I have a fantasy of riding off in the sunset with a country-lovin Nebraska boy. And do you think they are liberal? NOPE. Last time I was home, I went on a date with this guy and then we went back to his place (oops). He showed me what was on his DVR – it was ALL the O’Reilly factor and it freaked me out. He insisted that the show is good for getting the news…but I disagreed. Needless to say, it didn’t work out.

I loved your conclusion to the post: “[As you go to the polls today, just remember — it’s OK to bang Republicans, but it’s not OK to live in a country run by them. And if you share my affection for the GOP, just remember that you’re really better off if they lose today. If they do, just head to a bar tonight in a conservative part of town — those boys are going to be on a mission to hate fuck.]” HILARIOUS

PS- I had a huge crush on Robert, in Brothers and Sisters. Now, there’s an ambitious republican!

This is hilarious! My only question is-when you share your blog with friends and family-do they react to these posts? Have people close to you ever made a comment about them? I find myself wanting to write about sexuality and other “NSFW” things, but I know some people read my blog and I guess I feel self-conscious.

I get asked that a lot! Here is my post on the topic: http://www.rachelwilkerson.com/2010/04/07/does-your-mom-read-your-blog/
