    You tube recommends vids based on what you've watched earlier. Say, you are showing your friends/ colleagues something on youtube with your name logged on and a rather inappropriate recommended vid appears.

    Have you encountered such embarassing moments before? Well I did, not once but twice! Blush!

    Thankfully this has never happened to me but I will take on your hindsight experience and keep this in mind.

    If you're having this problem...
    Go to profile-> watch history, then delete every thing in the history or select the specific videos and delete...
    Then YouTube will no longer recommend videos that are similar to your history

    true,
    but sometimes after i've viewed something xxx rated, i forget to close that page and then when i unlock my phone the next time it's the first thing that pops open....not always convenient if you're in a crowded public space

    strictly user error

    I don't show YouTube to others, but I have learned to be careful with my iPad and iPhone pictures. Sometimes I forget to return Photos or iPhoto to the Events thumbnails, and so it brings up the last pic, or the last Events group I was using. icon_redface.gif

    So I hold the devices close to my chest as I'm opening the photo app, until I see what's on the screen. My gay friends aren't a problem, but a straight person might not want to see a close-up of an erect cock dripping with cum. icon_eek.gif

    Sure did and very recently. I found the below and was showing it to my gym buddies. Next day I had a client with me and attempted to show a car vid that I did last summer when the car topic came up. Wouldn't you know what 'bubbled' up.

    This is why I have two you tube accounts ...one for my business and one for everything else. I should have stayed with my business account that day

    Well, netflix does it too. The default screen when I start up the apple TV shows "recommendations for you," (always lame stuff or stuff I've seen 1000 times before.) For some reason, "another GAY movie" is always one of the first things it shows.

    If anything remotely sexual, relating to guys ("recommended for you because you watched men in the shower") came up on my phone, my friends would just roll their eyes.

    They know I'm on Realjock on my phone and that's almost as bad and sometimes worse ! haha

    This has happened to me before. Although the worst is when you leave a site like Manhunt open and you unlock your phone to that with your friends around.

    One time I was watching a presentation at a company event. The presenter had his laptop hooked up to projector. He opened his web browser and was about to open our website as part of the presentation. As he was typing the URL, the history/auto-complete displayed the URL of some porn site. He was typing pretty fast so only a handful of us caught it. But it was pretty damn funny.

    So after seeing this thread earlier, I just had to see what I would find under "men in shower" and this is what I found. If I didn't already know how to do this, I would have learned something today.

    "you can do this as a team though on your own works just as well" made me laugh

    And this is why I have a work laptop and a personal laptop! I NEVER use the work laptop for anything personal, and I dont even use my personal laptop as a backup for work. Never.

    Wow, that was really educational! I never knew exactly how to do that before. I just sort of checked to see if they were huevo shaped without any odd lumps. Now I know better. Thanks for posting this.

    Pretty simple, have multiple youtube accounts... a "clean" one if you want.
