A Shark in the Board Room and a Tiger in the Bedroom?

Wired article:

I am so sick of the priggishness. Tired of people making assumptions about a person based on their perceptions of the other’s sexuality — especially when they base those assumptions on the single dimension of online expression. Flabbergasted at the assumption that if you participate in adult activity online, you must lack judgment, integrity or reliability. Getting naked on the internet is an international pastime, not the whim of a handful of sex addicts. Flashing your booty or treating yourself to an orgasm is hardly a sign that you are incapable of doing your job well, nor does it grant permission for others to dismiss your professional competence or authority. If you are following a person’s digital trail and you learn that they spend Saturdays submitting to a dominatrix and Sundays blogging about the relationship and posting photos of the interplay, what assumptions can you draw about that person’s professional skills? None.
