We're all adults here. We don't have to pretend that we don't look at porn.

It can't be 100% browser history. I get completely different ads on Waygook than I do on other pages. Other pages are showing me ads for computer parts and video games. I come to Waygook and I'm shown clubs and I dunno what else... the pictures were usually somewhat suggestive so I run adblock since I use this site at work. I don't mind ads for sites I want to support as long as those ads aren't going to get me weird looks or possibly fired...

The ads you're referring to are google adsense banners.  We have them limited to certain categories of ads so that shouldn't be happening regardless of browser history.  The ads that are hosted on Waygook.org are all safe for work.

Might be that the ads you were looking at are categorized as something that we don't filter out, and happens to contain questionable images.  I'll take a look at our adsense settings, and post the categories if you're interested.

I feel like you're channeling someone.  It's slipped my mind who, but I'll get it eventually.

As far as I know, all devices connected to a WiFi network share a common public IP address. That address can be used to target all of the devices connected to that network. If you don't have any accounts set to you computer, google or whatever, may be sending you adds based on other's preferences. So it's possible no-one was sitting at your computer but you can check the browsing history. And if it helps you sleep at night, maybe it's not your co-workers, maybe it's just hormonal (pre)teens. Also, I too recommend using ad blockers if this continues to be a problem.
