First, don't stress too much about your age. Many, many teenagers watch porn; you're more likely to get in trouble for downloading music, to my knowledge (meaning it's pretty darn safe). Secondly, while I do understand not wanting your parents to know, watching porn isn't something to be ashamed of. Sex and sexuality are both natural and healthy; it sounds like you just have an unusually high sex drive. Honestly, I can relate. It's not a bad thing, and personally I'm quite glad to be the way I am in that regard.

Just don't go getting viruses on your computer!


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

Honestly, they are probably not as shocked as you think. I'd talk to them and say, "It's normal for me to like it. Humans are sexual creatures and there's nothing strange about it."

See what happens from there?

I understand you being embarassed, especially if you don't have a very open relationship with your parents. However, I can almost asure you one hundred precent certainty that they have watched porn or read porn magazines in their lifetime and it's perfectly normal to fufill those sexual urges by watching porn.

The only time when you truly NEED to stop is when it is keeping you from living your life and interferring with your everyday activities. Some people masturbate a lot, some don't do it very often at all. Don't be embarassed about it (:


It's better to cross the line &
suffer the consequences
than to just stare at the line
for the rest of your life.

Heey.
I agree with all these posts - it IS natural, and many of us out here do it.

However, if you DO still want to stop then as soon as you get the urges, log off the computer and take a break, or maybe use Google or this site to search for other methods of quiting this sort of behaviour.

Really though - if you delete the history on your computer your parents wont find anything, and it is NORMAL for teenagers to watch porn. Just make sure it doesn't start to effect your daily life (Skipping classes to look at porn).

Take Care x


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

If you want to stop you could always block all the porn sites you frequent from your computer, maybe even have your parents do it so you can't unlock it if you feel tempted. But really, there's nothing wrong with liking porn!

I agree with these, i think a lot of us here have this problem so if you find yourself wanting to look at it do something else, go here on TH or something. There is almost always someone in the chat room that would love to talk to you. I have been there....Good luck! If you ever want to talk to me about it or anything else, PM me!

There's no real need to stop. It doesn't seem like an addiction to me. As long as it gets in the way of your everyday life (example: you stay home from school to watch porn) I wouldn't worry
