I have a son that turns 12 in Sept. At his May physical, his doctor advised me it was time to have "the talk" with him which we did. Since then, he's been caught with porn magazines he's talking from family members houses 3 different times now. It's starting to freak me out in a way, like I'm thinking, is my son a freak? Is my son a weirdo?? Because we have a very normal house hold so it's not like he's been exposed to these things so where's this obsession of his coming from? Or is it an obsession? Maybe this is normal?? I need some advise or just to hear other parents are going through this with me...please...I want to add it's hard porn..not your simple Playboy...
Normal, BUT I would most definitely explain porn industry. The false illusion of it all and unfortunately how so many men become addicted to FANTACY world of pornography. This could happen to anyone and there needs to be limits to everything in life before it takes control over ones reality and gets out of hand.
Mother of a 14 yr old son here,lol!

I can't believe someone called you dumb. I'm so sorry. Disagreeing is one thing but calling you dumb? I for one don't think you are being dumb. Boys curiosity about this stuff runs a little different than girls from my experience. He may have been curious before the "talk" and now that that subject isn't taboo anymore used an opportunity to snag something inappropriate to satisfy some further curiosity or possibly hormones. Of course allowing him to keep the material wouldn't be appropriate and keeping the subject an open matter (with you and your husband) so he knows it's okay to talk to you about it could make a difference. He is a little young yet though so I would keep an eye out. The other thing you should do- talk to his doctor about this too. He can tell you what would be considered normal "range" for this and help with the "hormone" factor.
