How do you feel about your teen looking at porn?

My nephew, 16, is way into girls but trying to hold out for "the right girl" to come along so having sex will mean something. His mom found a porno in a box under his bed. I don't think that's a big deal since it means he's handling his business himself and not out there engaging in the same risky behavior that resulted in his 17yo brother becoming a daddy last month, but she's FREAKED.

Would you be upset if your teen looked at porn?

As long as theyre old enough to understand and don't bring it to the dinner table or anywhere but their own room why should it be a problem?

at least hes not out having sex at 16...

If the relationship between the two is open, I don't think it would hurt for them to have a talk about body image and porn.

No, I wouldn't care, or bring it up unless there was something truly concerning in there.

I would care, because it eventually would not be enough to satisfied himself and those feelings will take over: nest thing you know it, he is looking for someone to do it with.

I would prefer that he is into sports and Boy Scouts projects!

Porn can be addicting and needs to be talked about.

Niope. I would just hope my son would know that non-porn girls don't do what porn girls do for the most part.

I dare anyone who sees nothing wrong with a little pornography, or who just sticks their fingers in their ears and says "lalala" thinking their sons are not being hurt by a "little porn" to watch the following video.  Pornorgraphy is hurting all of us - women, families, and yes, men.  It is a poisoned fruit you are allowing your soons to eat.

I would be a little concerned because even though porn is better than having sex at 16 it can be addicting and end up causing problems in future relationships. In some serious cases of porn addiction in teens they will rape someone if they are not able to get someone to agree to having sex. Porn can only be a substitute for so long before they want the real thing.

I would be upset. Porn is derogatory to women. Making love is nothing like porn. I don't want the perversion of porn in my child's thoughts about sex. I would honestly rather my teen just experience sexuality in an organic way. I assume by the time my teen is a senior in high School they are likely having oral sex and possibly even intercourse. As long as it's happening in a loving committed relationship and they are using birth control and condoms, I would prefer that over my child becoming addicted to porn and degradation of women.
