EDIT: I also fucked up by not fucking proof-reading my own title.
For context, I am a college prof at a not very great school in the midwest. Still looking for a tenure-track job, but contract work pays the bills for now. Assuming I don't get fired on Friday.
So, long story short, I found one of my female students on /r/GoneWild this week. I have no doubts whatsoever about it actually being her. She includes her face in many of her pictures, and in at least some of the pictures the street visible outside of her window is very obviously one that runs next to the campus.
I did not have any intention of telling her about this, of course. It would be ridiculously embarrassing for her and probably really unethical on my side in spite of the fact that I wasn't even looking for these pictures when I found them.
I'd like to say that I immediately closed the tab and never went back... but I didn't. I am not proud of myself, but instead I went to her user overview and looked for more. She is one of the only hot girls in the class, and having her there is a welcome distraction from the mind-numbing tedium of actually trying to teach this shit to people who don't care about it. I knew it was wrong, or could at least see the arguments for why it was wrong, but I couldn't help myself.
Anyway, cue the first day of class after this discovery. All the students had to hand in their first paper of the term. She came up to my desk with hers and dropped it off, and our eyes met. And kept meeting. I couldn't look away. I think my face might have twitched a bit. "Is something wrong, professor?" she asked. I started stammering, and then, because I'm completely and utterly stupid, I unthinkingly looked right at her chest.
Looked back up at her. She knew. We both knew.
I'm not proud of it, but I went to look at her overview again when I got home. It had been deleted. So had the pictures on imgur.
The next class is on Friday. I really, really am not looking forward to this.
