Unhappy Porn and masturbation at 14 - March 25th 2014, 11:53 PM

Ok so I'm about to turn 14. I watch porn and masturbate. Is that normal? Sometimes I feel like I've ruined my whole childhood because I started masturbating and watching porn in the 5 grade. I used to get upset with myself when I was done, sometimes id cry all night but now I just....I guess u can say except it. Is there something wrong with me??

It's completely normal to watch porn and masturbate! It's a natural way to explore your body, release sexual urges and tension, and even release stress. Tons of people watch porn or masturbate, and there is nothing wrong with that! I'm sure on this site you'll find a good majority of us do. I've been since lower elementary school.

The only time porn and masturbation would become a problem is if it is become an addiction to you that has been preventing you from doing day to day activities (for example, you avoid hanging out with friends to watch porn/masturbate), or if it is physically hurting you in some way. Are either of those things the case here? If they are, then maybe you can seek help from a family member, doctor, or counselor to lessen your urges, but as long as it's not getting in the way of anything or hurting you, there's nothing wrong with it.

You're not alone! ^_^


Let it come and let it be...

Hello there,

Masturbating is healthy and very normal. This allows us to explore our own bodies and to know our dislikes and likes about yourself. You're not doing anything wrong for exploring your own body. Masturbation is a private activity that you do by yourself privately.

Pornography is fake. It's fake because it doesn't show any emotions or what sex is. It's something that people use before masturbating and/or watch with their partner. Watching porn can be dangerous when we want to watch it all the time and prevents us from doing our daily activities. If you make a connection with porn that it's not the same as when you decide to have sexual relations with someone, it is different. Sex has emotions to it, it's respected and has meaning. Porn on the other hand is just fun and people use it to help with masturbating.

I have a few links that you can take a look at:

Should I stop Masturbating?


Take Care.

Thank u both...
No it doesn't really affect my day-to-day life. I still hang out with friends and stuff of that nature. I normally do it at night or when I'm alone and bored. Thanks for the links

Hey there,

I don't feel like you have an addiction at all. This is a completely normal thing for a 14 year old boy to do. Masturbation during your early teens is just what happens, you need to explore your own bodies, and this is how it's done. For some people, it's seen as a bad thing and this is why some teens feel like they're doing something wrong, but it's completely natural.

A little bit of porn is fine, as long as you don't let it effect your views on sex. Always remember that what you see is porn isn't real, and that isn't what sex with real women is like. But it's completely fine to watch it to masturbate.

I began watching pornography at the age of 9. What you're doing is absolutely completely normal, so normal that you and rest of the female/male population widely do it. What is there to feel guilty or ashamed of? This doesn't ruin your childhood but porn overtime desensitizes you so make sure you're not addicted to it or not codependent on it. Other than that this is normal and healthy exploration/curiosity. No damage whatsoever.

'Normal' doesn't necessarily mean 'good for you'. For some people - masturbating is a BIG problem. They masturbate so often that they miss out on many of the other great things someone can do in life!

As for watching porn - I do that myself - every now and then. But I have to say - it is an empty thing - emotion wise. AND it does mess up my idea of what most people really look like naked. Few people are that big or that flawless. [Oh yeah! I only watch quality porn!! haha]

Also - sometimes - getting into the habit of watching porn can make it difficult to find pleasure without it.

So there's a thought or two!!

GBH - Craig!

Hello mate!
Its completely normal if you aint addicted. I wank off one or two, maybe one for good morning, one during the day if you can to keep the blood flowing and one before going to bed for relaxation
And damn you started in the fifth grade? I wanked off for so many years i cant remember starting it. I know i started even before i could do the spray spray thingy
So yeah mate, its completely normal as long as something isnt suffering from it. If you still go out with friends, maybe pick up a girl, get some lovin' flowin' so you dont have to do the work, maybe she can take over!
So if you ask me, wank off as much as you like, or at least to the point where blood is going out instead of the cream and youre ok

Have fun!
