Teen boys and porn..is it normal?

I just read a question from a mom that obviously was upset that her 14 year old looked at porn. I had to chuckle, as it is normal for boys this age to think of sex and look up porn. My own son done this, I found out and talked to him about it. Why do mothers make such big deals out of it?

  • It's normal. It's curiosity. When I was 14 I was snooping in my parents room and found Penthouse magazines my dad had and believe me I didn't know about a lot of things before I saw that. I also stayed at a cousin's house once and when everyone was asleep I turned on the tv and came across porn. I watched it.

  • It's normal. I'd rather my son look at porn then to try and get a girl to take her clothes off! It's natural for boys to be interested.

  • Ok its normal. But i wouldnt want my son looking at it on the computer. My neibors son looked up porn on my computer hes 14...but it got a virus on it and we had to go get a new computer. I was pissed! But then agian when that starts with my son its time for him to have a talk with dad. I would rather buy him a magazine then him fry my computer.

  • Yeah I agree some kids cant believe how fast their kids are growing up, but you know its gonna happen sometime. Its a part of life. Im not ready for the day when my sons watch porn I dont know what to say to them (Im a single mom) I guess I'll just handle it when the time comes. But I will not scold them for it, its a natural thing to be curious and want to know about sex. Then we'd have to have the sex talk

  • Unfortunetly in this day and age it's called "normal". Just because something is normal doesn't mean its good or right. Porn exploits men, woman, and now children. Sex is good, porn is not a correct representation of sex or realistic for that matter. Sex will be a very normal thing for us in our house to talk to our children about, but we will also talk about the perversion of what society has made it. There's my two cents! I know I won't make many friends with that response.
