Should I be concerned about the PeekYou results for our daughter's preschool teacher?

We're looking at preschools. One of the teachers is the son of the school's founder. The founder is no longer active on a day-to-day basis with the school. It currently has two co-directors, one of whom is the son's wife and the other is another woman.
The son is a lead teacher in one of 3 classrooms. He has a very distinctive name and we've met him and like him and the school and the other staff we've met. If you search on this male teacher's name via PeekYou, there is only one result in the United State and the profile (age, location) fits him. There is a "user name" associated with this teacher's name and it is something vaguely sexual (similar to sekmayniac but not this specifically). Googlling the specific user name turns up a bunch of hits on websites that seem to be devoted to wifeswapping and cuckolding and finding threesomes and also give the location where he lives.
I really don't care what he and his wife (the co-director) do in their own time but should I? Is this a giant red flag? How likely is it that he is actually the person associated with the sex sites? Is this just the danger of Googling someone? Ugh, I should never have gone down this path. Talk me down, AskMe.
