    Ancient cities had carved penises in the cobblestone streets that pointed the way to brothels and big wall frescoes depicting sexual acts right out in public spaces. Granted I get what you are saying, this is not the same as me being able to google whatever the fuck I want right now and get it, but it is also not just 'titty sculptures', it was depicted sex right out in everyone's face.

    Sure, fucking is bad, but beating people up, that's all right. I think I'm starting to see what your problem is.

    if you somehow remove their access to all port somehow, how will you stop them from experimenting with each other? This is such a ridiculous idea to begin with. Someone save youth from their own bodies!

    You either closely monitor their media devices or just forget about it .
    I discovered masturbation even before discovering pornography on the internet and I masturbated to still images of women in the era of the first color screens on phones and mobile internet ,patiently waiting those 6mb pictures to load, so yours would probably be a lost battle anyway . Teenagers will get horny eventually and our only biological goal is to procreate .

    Generally the people who are most restricted will end up going to the extremes as it would be seen as a boundary break , something teenagers actively seek to estabilish their emancipation from parent figures .

    Instead of thinking how to prevent contact you should seek to educate your children , it's for the best but you making this thread makes me think I'm just wasting my words

    Absolutely ridiculous!
    It is just crazy how civilization doesn't blink an eye over violence but shrieks over nudity and pornography.
    Blood and gore, no problem. A tit or some bush, people loose their fucking mind.

    I used to have a stack of Hustlers stashed under a Yucca bush that my buddy and I swiped from his uncle's travel trailer when I was 7.
    It is normal and ok. Fighting to repress sexuality CAUSES confusion and perversion. Just look at the Catholic Church, I will spare you the armchair psychology but you know what I am saying.

    No. There is absolutely no way to get rid of it. There is far too much of it in every form of media. There is simply no way you could get rid of every single bit of it. Not only that, but its a multi-billion dollar industry. It would be a huge blow to any economy to just shut it out. Keep in mind, we are talking about something that has been around nearly as long as humans have walked this planet.

    It's like the people who say this don't remember what they were like when they were young.
    We all were curious and one way or another, we found a way to see what we wanted to see.

    My concern isn't whether or not young teens see pornography, my concern is the lack of guidance because so many people keep trying to brand it as some evil, horrible thing. Without proper guidance, they go into it blind and there were interviews conducted with older people, (mid 20s), concerning that experience and many of them expressed regret that they were left to do it without any parental oversight at all.

    Note: The people interviewed did not say they wished their parents had stopped them, they instead said they had wished that the subject had not been forbidden in their parents minds, so they could talk to their parents about it more openly and get some proper guidance into it so they could have had a more healthy approach to it.

    The problem is perhaps, that pornography is *too* accessible and that means that if they go in blind, they may for instance be looking for vanilla stuff and stumble upon some extreme BDSM that will leave them confused and may warp their perceptions of what is and is not normal. (This has also been demonstrated to be happening - going in blind left them to see things they were not ready to see or did not understand what they saw because they could not discuss it openly and get any kind of parental guidance or insight into what they had seen.)

    That is the real issue in my eyes.

    I've also spoken to a few people in their early/mid-20s myself and either from them outright confessing it or in the way they talked about their perceptions of sex, it was clear that they had seen things that they did not understand and it left them as stated, confused, about what was acceptable and what was not. To be more precise, they saw staged acts with actors and actresses faking certain elements of it and then came to believe that what they saw was how people normally did it which caused their initial experiences to be total disasters. In several cases, this caused long-term damage. At least one person that I spoke to clearly had never reconciled the difference at all and that has left him a very unhappy and lonely person who cannot understand what he is doing wrong.

    I can see at least one example of what happens when you see something you don't understand in the posts above, just on this page alone.

    It isn't that young adults are curious and seeing pornography that's bad, it's the lack of support they get when they do become curious that causes it to become harmful.

    Porn addiction is a thing, and as @Raybourne brought up, it is also desensitizing the reward center for sex. (the more you watch it the more freaky it gets, and then when you have normal sex its not as interesting, and men have a hard time staying erect); Outside of that making porn is also toxic, a sizable amount of porn actors end up killing themselves, or dying of drug overdoses... and some are also abused physically during filming...
    this is 100% BS, i where in a relationship for 8 years, before this i watched porn literally everyday even 3+ times a day for 10 years, when i had sex first time i came fast as hell, i still watched some fucked up shit while in the relationship and guess what? my GF was super vanilla and i'm into freaky things but that didnt have any effect on my performance what so ever, if something it teached me control so i could give her orgasms before i came, restricting porn is just as stupid as restricting cannabis and no i dont smoke and have never done it lol.

    Who cares? You do? As a parent? Then it's up to you. And even then you propaply fail, even if you are a wonderful parent. When you reach certain age, you just wanna see some naked people. Human curiosity is pretty strong. Hiding, shielding does not work. Education might. Tell them what it is. What it does? Why try to fight against free will?

    No it's not, as a young teen I was steered clear of Porn, so as an Artist, I just drew my own. No matter what you do, like life, they will find a way. Also I'd rather let my Kids (if I had any) see nude images, or two people in the act of making love (in context) then letting them watch any current violent movies or shows on TV.

    It's sinful and harmful in the same way marijuana is sinful or harmful.

    SPOILER: It's not.

    Connal, I would like to point out that particular study focused on individuals with a porn addiction. Most of those people are watching or beating off to it MULTIPLE times a day. This is not the standard individual that views porn. An overabundance of anything is not going to be good ever. And, these were all individuals that preferred masturbating to porn as opposed to sex with a partners.

    That article's title is click-baity and not completely accurate.

    I was talking about porn addiction. But even in moderation it may have negative consequences, as it mostly conveys unrealistic expectations.

    I’m not looking to ban porn however; watching it should be up to each person, but they should also be aware that it has consequences.
