And, if you think about it, the same adults who are prohibiting their kids from watching porn were teenagers once who defied their own parents and were creative in their ways to watch porn.

The problems that watching porn brings

When teenagers watch porn, they have the desire to act on it. Responsible teenagers masturbate to relieve the pressure they feel in watching porn, and others wants to do the same thing. The major risk in teenagers watching porn is their desire to coerce or ask their girlfriend or boyfriend to engage in a sexual act with them, and because there is lack of proper sex education, teenage pregnancy can be the result.

The worst thing that can happen is the teenage watching porn may become sexually active that he may force himself on a girl just to experience sex, or a girl may seduce a man to have sex with her just to know how it feels.

To reduce the risk

Teenagers are going to watch porn, whether there is permission from their parents or not. Sex education is crucial to start at home, and though most parents are hesitant to discuss sex to their young children, it is vitally important, so the young ones will have the proper knowledge about the sexual act, and be ready for the possible scenarios that may happen once they engage in sex. It is much better for parents to teach their kids the pros and cons of sex, inform their kids the benefits and downside of it, let them watch porn to quench their curiosity, and provide appropriate and intelligent guidance in the world of sex. That way, the teenage kids will be more responsible in their actions, and they do not need to seek the desired information about the worldly sex from outside the house, where they can be misinformed.
