He is 8-yrs-old. My DS and I often google together to look up Wii games to purchase next. We've also googled super heros so we could watch video game & super hero video clips on Youtube and other sites. So he knows how to use the search engine. I had my computer closed and ran downstairs to get laundry. Within the 5 or so minutes I was away, he kicked my DD out the room and told her to leave him alone so she went to her room to play. He logged onto my computer, opened internet explorer, typed in www.google.com, then entered in SEX. He clicked on the first link which took him directly to a porn site that featured girl on girl/lesbian videos. He clicked on a video which took him to a page where you have to register & become a member to view the video. He clicked on an ad on that same page that took him to a live web cam of two girls having sex with each other. The ads around the video were of men ejaculating on women & anal sex. I walked in too soon for him to exit out so he just closed my lap top. I picked up my lap top so I could begin doing homework and that's when I saw everything, reviewed the history and all.
I spoke with him privately and asked what he saw. He told me he didn't do anything. I asked him a second time and he cried and told me he would never do it again and that he was sorry. I started to address what sex actually is and he very firmly told me, "No! I don't want to talk about it with you." I understand that part. But I am SO upset & concerned that what he saw is going to warp his idea of true intimacy. His father, my XH, will not be of much help at all. His father will cheer him on. My DF will be home tomorrow and told me he'll take him for a walk and explain that sex is an expression of love and when adults do it they make babies. My DF says this is the age him & his friends at school began sharing information and searching for pornography.
