I discovered my bf has been downloading porn through unethical means...what to do?

    I got his IP address and checked it www.youhavedownloaded.com, just out of curiosity. Was wondering if he bootlegged any really bad music that I could playfully tease him about but wasn't happy with what I saw. :(

    Especially since the downloaded stuff was dated and a lot of it was around December, a time of emotional significance for us (which I wont get into) that he absolutely should not have been looking for porn.

    Not looking for relationship advice or anything just thoughts on the dilemma, do I let on what I know or should I not? How bad ethically is checking someones online history?

    Was he piggybacking on a neighbour's broadband then?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,897 ✭✭✭MagicSean


    Re-enact one of the scenes with him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,566 ✭✭✭Funglegunk


    Especially since the downloaded stuff was dated and a lot of it was around December, a time of emotional significance for us (which I wont get into) that he absolutely should not have been looking for porn.

    Men look at porn all the time. Now you are a little wiser.

    Maybe it was for research purposes and such.

    That website is a pisstake, btw.

    Your boyfriend definitely downloads porn though.

    .....he downloaded during some obscure christmas porn-ban that may well exist in your head, but probably not in his...right, with ye so far...

    IP addresses can and do change. Wasn't necessarily your bf that did it. Stop spying on him and get over it! Don't think there is an Internet connected man on the planet that hasn't looked at porn.

    Especially since the downloaded stuff was dated

    Some of the early 70s stuff didn't age well at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,654 ✭✭✭cruiser178


    this is one of those treads where you dont have to read the op, just the posts to get a laugh :D

    i love how everything on after hours can be traced back to women shaving

    Site has no reconds on me.

    Can't be genuine.

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.

    You make it sound like you dumped toxic waste on a family of ducks, not a simple browser history search.

    is that site real. it told me:


    Hi. We have no records on you.
    This means you are using a private torrent tracker or, of course, you may not be a torrent user at all! It happens. Please, entertain yourself. Feel free to see what other people have downloaded. The search box is on the top. If you have any friends who use torrents, use it to scare them off. We also have a widget that you can install in your website, blog or Facebook page. Or you can just send them a link to this site. They will see a table similar to what you see below. The only difference — they will see their downloads.


    there are 4 males in their 20s on this IP. Seriously doubt none of us have used torrents.

    Is being private on torrents the default setting?


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 10,661 ✭✭✭✭John Mason


    lol, that site said i downloaded 2 criminal minds.

    i dont know what a torrent is, never mind download one


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 238 ✭✭WolfgangWeisen


    Well, that site certainly pulled up a few things I downloaded :)

    Anyway, Op, know what a bunny boiler is? 'Cause you're one of them. Cop yourself on and trust your partners until you're given a reason not to, porn does not count as that. Unless, of course, you want to be a spinster?

    Seems like thinly veiled spam though.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,988 ✭✭✭SirDelboy18


    No wonder he was looking...


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,324 ✭✭✭BillyMitchel


    Go back and look at it again and pick your favourite scene and make sure you have it perfected, then act out the whole scene with you BF and see what he says or does or if he even notices..

    What sites does he use by the way??

    Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but how do you download porn "through unethical means"

    Also, he's more likey to be looking at porn in a time of emotional signifigance than at any other time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 243 ✭✭Recessionbust


    Me thinks the OP is the one having the last laugh. You could be clickin on anything.


  • Registered Users Posts: 186 ✭✭omgitsthelazor


    I mean I discovered what he was doing through unethical means, I don't care how it was downloaded. The problem was it was and what it was -.-

    Some of the filenames were things like "brutal dildo" and a lot of crass things involving hispanic women. Its not like it was page 3 stuff or anything, it sounded really vulgar.
