I would kick him straight in the nuts, and then send him to catholic rehabilitation camp in alaska.
On a serious note, it depends how old he / she is, and what kind of porn it is, some could be harmless, as childreen/teens are curious.

I've been doing it since like 10, I'm 14 now, never got caught...
commented Sep 21, 2010 by AppleHack23 (3,711 points)
No, I am sure of my sexuality. I am 100% straight. People annoy the crap out of me at school by calling me gay all the time. It is against my religion (Christian) to be gay. And before you go and argue about adultery or whatever kind of sexual acts that you think is against God, remember, God made Adam and Eve naked and allowed them to stand before each other. It also says nothing about you not being allowed to experiment with your own body in the Bible. The only thing God does forbid, is penetration before marriage.
commented Sep 21, 2010 by Seb (23,610 points)
Just teasing... Do you respond to them by quivering your lip and stuttering "I-I-I... I'M NOT A HOMO!"? I'd suggest not doing so. If you're 100% straight, it shouldn't bother you that a guy calls you gay. *edit: In fact, I used to wink at them in that situation... The one guy who took it further really was gay, and I ended up not being suspended for my reaction when he tried to feel me up...* The girls are what count, right? What do you think goes through their mind when you bother to respond to that low sort of jibber?

... and no matter what the snake says, **do not** eat the apples. God doesn't like that.

I had my son look at Apple's thread....I will not repeat what he said out of Christian chairity and compassion for our brother.

Yes, Apple, God did indeed made' Adam and Eve naked and allowed them to stand in front of each other". The Adam got frisky, they wound up in vegas and we all know that what happens, stays in Vegas - until it hits the web. But Apple - I want to hear more about that penetration thing.Help me out with that.
commented Sep 21, 2010 by AppleHack23 (3,711 points)
Penetration means sexual intercourse with the opposite sex.
commented Oct 7, 2011 by MacManDerek (801 points)
@AppleHack23- If you are 14, you're expressing to adults that you're breaking the law. By not reporting that knowledge we become accessories to contributing to the delinquency of  a minor. Saying these things makes you feel good about yourself, like it's cool, it's not. I don't care to know your age or that you break the law. These discussions are meant to ask and answer questions, you're doing neither and you're giving the administrators more reason to stop us from having adult conversations about topics like these.

If every one of you thought of what you did when you were a teen then think twice before kicking someone in the nuts. Watching porn is actually a natural thing and no on can resist that. If I would be a parent I wouldn't kick no one for it. Especially if the person is 18 then what's wrong with that?

I edited your comment slightly to remove part of one sentence. Please dont refer to people who prefer someone of the same sex in that manner here... it borders on hate speech. Thank you.
commented Sep 21, 2010 by Phoenix7 (2,321 points)
awh, thanks Kat, that was quite considerate of you. haha
commented Sep 21, 2010 by NoncDavid (406 points)
Kat- do you have sons?
commented Sep 22, 2010 by djmoore711 (2,051 points)
I edited for grammar: "and no-one can't resist that" is a double negative. And when did no-one become a word?

If I ever get kids and they watch porn, I will have to make sure they didn't install malware on the PC.
commented Jun 29, 2010 by Mihkel (4,564 points)
Good point! A lot of bad stuff comes with it.
commented Sep 21, 2010 by Seb (23,610 points)
Just set up an underprivileged account and make sure they do their pr0n viewing in it. Then they can download dialers/malware to their hearts desire, realise that it doesn't work and learn how to spot porn from malware.

I would arrange with my son an agreement: He does his housework and homework when required, and I pay for a monthly subscription to a safe, legal porn site of his choice. The other requirement is that he never show his friends.
commented Sep 21, 2010 by IamTechCrazy (4,621 points)
Good luck with that and by that I mean him not telling his friends ;)
commented Sep 21, 2010 by tsilb (47,280 points)
And by what process would he choose a porn site? :)
commented Sep 21, 2010 by SJP (4,601 points)
Just out of curiosity...are you a parent?
commented Sep 21, 2010 by Seb (23,610 points)
Please note that I did not ask for your thumbs up. One thing I do ask is that you do NOT edit my response merely because you don't believe this could be enforced: "The other requirement is that he never show his friends." This is enforceable by punitive measures. If he were to show his friends and his friends parents caught him, I would surely hear about it and he would lose the subscription.

@tsilb Searching the internet, of course.

@SJP No, but I've been a very curious child before.
commented Oct 8, 2011 by xedric14 (941 points)
you don't have to do that arrangement. you're prying too much as a parent, if you are a good parent, you provide him/her privacy nothing more/less.

you can search psych textbooks, and studies about it. it's the proper intervention.

you children aren't your puppets, so you don't have to do everything/ tell them everything. you were once a kid right? and on that stage of development, kids wanted to feel independent, make them "feel" it.
i'm not saying just let them do what they want. but the guidance you are trying to give is i think too much.

Good luck finding a "Safe and legal" porn site... LOL

Look this guys from Egypt. Do you guys  have any idea what porn is like in Egypt?
I think porm is awesome. Its the best acting in the world. I thought it was great too, until I had daughters.

I caught my son watching porn when he was 15. We made a deal That I wouldn't make a big deal of it so long as his Mom didn't find out I also told him that if I ever found out that he had shown a woman or a girlfriend and disrespect,I'd hang around in the kitchen while he told his mom- and his sisters.

Scared the shit out of him.

I wouldn't actually be that bothered, but I would explain to my kid the laws about pornography and what is okay and not okay to look at. But as long as it's legal and not bestiality or necrophilia, I don't mind.

I debated whether or not to leave this question open. I am going to on one condition: PLEASE stay appropriate. There is no reason that we cannot have an adult discussion of this nature without it turning into something bad. NO LINKS to your stash will be allowed. No telling each other where to find it. Nothing of the sort.... please. :)

That said

My first reaction was to flip out at the thought. I have a fifteen year old daughter. And then... I stepped back and really thought about it. She is curious, much as I was at that age. Much as ANYONE is. There is nothing wrong with watching porn in and of itself. Would I ground her? Nah. Would I sit down and talk to her? Yup. I wouldn't yell at her for it, but I would caution her as to the safety of it, answer any questions she had, and the like.

That doesn't mean I'd be happy about it, nor that I condone it. However, teenagers are going to do things we don't like. It's a fact of life. We cannot put them in a bubble and only allow them to do what we want. There comes a point we have to let go as parents and trust we raised them right. :)
commented Sep 21, 2010 by Seb (23,610 points)
My father had a similar approach. He told me all would be good as long as I didn't go showing friends or taking it to school, and I turned out fine... right? (please don't answer)

Kat - seems this one has run its course. Its starting to stink.
