What would you do for money?

If you had opportunity to make a great amount of money doing a job that you or your family found morally wrong but not illegal, would you do it? Say, designing and maintaining porn sites or harassing families of fallen solders because god hates gays? If there was a LOT of money in it, could you do it?


This is a hypothetical question, not something I'm personally faced with. I just want to see what you guys think?


Me personally, Pr0n...yes I would do that. Harassing families of fallen soldiers, hell no!! Depends on the situation for me.

That's about where my limits would fall as well.

I would administer/produce p0rn (wouldn't star in it in myself, though), so long as it stayed along the lines of what's legal (i.e. no children or animals)...

If I were younger/had the body for it and stood to make a lot (LOT) of money, I'd strip (upscale/no touchy kind of establishment only).

I'd draw the lines at all-out prostitution or selling drugs (but then those - for the most part -- aren't legal anyway).

But regardless how much money was involved, I wouldn't do anything that would cause harm or pain (physical or emotional) to anyone, whether I knew them or not (i.e. the harassing the families of soldiers).

And for any of the above stuff I MIGHT do, it'd have to be a very dire situation... I mean I'd have to REALLY REALLY need the money to be driven to such lengths.

Hmmm, I've often thought a port site would be a great money maker!

I'd do it if i had the know how, and the willing participants!

(waits for OSP's agreement)

Gotta do something that I'm proud of. Just started working out of college a couple years ago and looking into the future, I feel that my career will inherently be a big (but not the biggest) part of what I feel defines me. I can't live with myself thinking that I'm trading my own thoughts/ideals/morals for some cash- this is coming from a position where I have plenty of opportunities available to me. On the other hand, I can imagine having to suck it up for a while and being part of something I don't completely agree with out of pure survival instinct- possibly to house and feed myself and my family.

It would depend on the situation. It would have nothing to do with what others "think" is immoral. It would be more of a question as to whether my activities could be potentially harmful to those I love. i.e. I couldn't operate a porn website or a stripclub because I have a 3 yr old daughter, and I wouldn't want her to be exposed to that type of business as she grows up.

On the other hand, I could be a bartender. (I know the arguments about serving the drink to the drunk driver that kills a family, and that is a valid point) But, I also believe in personal responsibility. Serving a drink to an adult may be deemed "immoral" by many, but I wouldn't have a problem with it.

So I guess my answer is "It Depends..."

Depends on what it pays. For 1 million dollars a year, I'll scrub toilets.
Bouncer at a strip club? I'd work for free.

I couldn't operate a porn site. I hate porn. I had an offer to do graphic design for an adult site a few years ago but never did it. I have kids and I don't want them around that kind of stuff and I will tell you with google you can find just about anything.

As a former bartender I don't think it to be wrong. A good bartender will offer a ride, call and may even pay for a cab for patrons, as well as give free drinks to DD's. I think everyone should work in a bar at some point. You learn a lot from co-workers and patrons. You meet a lot of very interesting people, sample some very extravigent products, and learn to socialize in a fun environment without being intoxicated.

I play this game with my family all the time, it drives them nuts (but amuses them).

I would do the porn thing, no problem. I don't think (legal) porn is offensive when kept in the right settings. I think most people are human with human curiosities and urges. Anyway. I would not do the harassing soldiers' families thing. That would hurt them more than me.

The family that rides together, stays together.
