The blatant effect of online porn

I am currently suffering from the effects of porn induced ED and am 8 weeks into no PMO recovery. I recently decided to make my 18 year old son aware of its potential effects. I was shocked at what I learnt from him. Not surprisingly he has discussed internet porn with his mates. But one of them has already had sex and told them that he prefers looking at online porn to the real experience of sex! - and this is at the age of 17/18. I asked my son if he regularly has wet dreams (it was a very free and easy conversation despite my worrying beforehand). He said he had only had one wet dream in his life to date. When he mentioned this to his mates they all laughed - the reason they laughed was that not one of them had ever experienced a wet dream. I would call this a clear indicator of the powerful effect of online porn - messing up the normal sexual development of teens. This is a clear time bomb which needs far greater exposure.

Your son is fortunate to have such a down-to-earth father, and you are lucky to have such an approachable teenager!

Glad you two managed to have a sensible talk. If I'd known then what I know now...

yeah, have to say fair play

yeah, have to say fair play for talking to your son about this.
My father has never ever talked to me about girls, porn, sex or anything like that. I wish he had.

Also, that's quite scary that they're becoming so used to porn at that age. When I was that age, at least I didn't have broadband. Having a really slow internet connection actually deterred me from watching porn as a teenager.

Broadband porn and Facebook, 2 things I'm glad weren't around when I was 12/13. I had a vague semblance of 'innocence'/normal childhood that way, crushes on girls etc.

Yes, I'm an eternal optimist, but

even I can see that the situation will get worse before it gets better.

Still, there's lots of good info coming out now. The good thing about the Internet is that useful news can become a meme and spread quickly too.

Did you see all of these? (All from the last couple of weeks.)
