Should You Protect Your Child From Watching Internet Porn?
Watching porn may cause your child to become obsessed with sex. Here are some issues to think about.

I checked back with my friend, Linda, one year later. Her son, Jake, was now a freshman in high school. He was constantly talking about getting blow jobs and wanting other sexual acts from girls. She said that he was still watching a lot of porn. She didn't allow him to watch it on his computer, but since he paid his own cell phone bill, he was free to watch it on his phone. Here's how the next conversation went:

Linda: Jake did something disgusting the other day.

 

Me: What?

Linda: He was at a friend's house, and his parents were out of town. There was a party, and Jake got a girl to give him a blow job in the friend's bedroom. The friend was very angry at Jake. 

Me: Was that his girlfriend?

Linda: No. He barely knew her. 

Is there a relationship between Jake's early desire for blow jobs from girls he doesn't know or care about and the variety of Internet porn he's watching on a regular basis? An Australian study has shown that sexual arousal decreases over time with repeated displays of the same erotic film. If Jake is constantly watching porn and presumably masturbating, will he be satisfied with "normal sex" when the time is right? Will he need more stimulating sex acts like the porn he watched as a child? 

What is the parents' responsibility in protecting a child from watching porn?
