Nurglitch: sodomizer: I think the response is the same that you should tell your kid for any unproductive activity: "This will get you nowhere. The time and energy you're using on this would be better placed elsewhere, like education, sports, or finding a soulmate."There's a beautiful synergy between your username and your advice.I think I would have spent less time masturbating if I'd had easy access to porn as a teenager - I would have rubbed one out and gotten on with my day instead of all the hijinks I went through for the privacy and material to spank it. As a parent, I think I'd make sure that my kids have a few back-issue collections of Savage Love to peruse.Frankly I'd be more concerned about them watching prime-time soap operas and forming an opinion about relationships from that sort of material than from porn.
sodomizer: Koodz: Most of the sexual neuroses I see in people were inflicted by others judging what they like, not by what they actually like.Known expert! I think you've mistaken offense/butthurt for neurosis.Earpj: All depends on the people involved. I wouldn't presume to decide what will make anyone else happy/miserable in their own lives. My daughter is living her life in a way that is foreign to me, but she's thriving.Some people can have a perfectly innocuous life, and still be miserable. No two people are the same and no two people will react or feel exactly the same way.That's what makes life grand. :)Yeah, I've heard that one before, about life being grand because everyone's just doing their thing. Twenty years ago I believed it. Now I realize how that was just wishful thinking on the part of those who wanted to "be different."Your daughter may find that time modifies her success as well.As far as the people having perfectly innocuous lives and being miserable, the technical term for that is a non sequitur; it literally has no bearing on what we're discussing.
Nurglitch: Frankly I'd be more concerned about them watching prime-time soap operas and forming an opinion about relationships from that sort of material than from porn.

Undulation: On a related note, I'm pretty sure women can only get aroused when baking pies, and not when thinking about pictures of people having sex.
FunkOut: It was explained to me that men look at porn because it's impossible for them to mentally fantasise about having sex and jerk off to that like many women do and it would be wrong to expect a man to have to do that. Men don't have the capacity to imagine a sexual fantasy in their mind and simply leave it to the professionals.
pute kisses like a man: here's the part I don't understand about the internet and porn.why does everyone have a porn folder? what about going online, looking at porn, sanitizing the computer, feeling shameful, and moving on with your day? why is there all this talk about porn folders? is it really the way y'all do porn? you download this stuff and save it in some folder? Am I doing it wrong by not downloading anything and not saving it in some folder?
ImmaHoopyFrood: My son is 15 now. He started with the victoria's secret catalog at 12. Over the last month my proxy has been picking up on his online porn searches and visits. I asked him if he wanted to tell me anything about where he has been going online and he spilled the beans without a problem. Told him if there are any more visits to porn sites on my network he loses access. Porn sites are laden with malware.I told him to build a cantenna or get an external antenna, and drill a hole in his Galaxy and hook into an unsecured WAP in the neighborhood. I don't allow the handhelds full access to the internal wap. Or he can get his own internet access. I also got him a subscription to Playboy. Look at all the porn you want. Just don't do it over my network.I asked him if he enjoyed the Stephen Hawking classic interview in the last issue. He grinned and said "Yeah... I read that for like 20 minutes"
sodomizer: Earpj: A sexual relationship should be however the consenting adults involved, want it to be. It's no one elses business.That's the safe postmodern view.The counterpoint is that some types of behavior lead to misery and neurosis, and others lead to health.Same reason we don't legalize drugs and bestiality.
meanmutton: Let's not pretend that Gonzo style porn, which is almost exclusively the type you easily find on the Internet, shows anything even remotely close to what sex our relationships should be like.
Earpj: I just periodically remind my boys that porn is fantasy. Very few women will let you slap them in the face with your penis.
