Default What age did you start watching porn?

What age did you first watch porn? When did you begin to do so deliberately? What age should someone be allowed to watch porn? Why do you do it?

Just wondering. I first watched some when I was 13 or 14. I don't know why; maybe because I knew I shouldn't.

I was 16, I was interested. it helped me determine my sexuality. Though the ones with the music, I turn away from those ones

I also dislike porn with music.

I started at nineteen with very softcore stuff. Pictures of guys kissing. Largely G-rated pictures of guys kissing. I didn't start looking at fully naked pictures and videos for ages. I moved from pictures of guys kissing to Youtube videos of the same. I look at fully naked stuff now, bet even now, I get off more on the physical affection than the graphic sex.

The music in porn sucks, I think that's generally agreed.

I probably snuck a peek at my stepdad's magazines around 14 maybe (can't remember). I remember when I was in high school I got in trouble for visiting certain websites, and by then I had already started looking at gay porn.

I also had a friend who had been buying porn in high school. Apparently he had been doing so for a while, so he probably started about 14ish also.

So probably about 15 or so for me.
Why did I start looking?
... I was a teenage boy.

I was about 13 or 14 (so about the start of puberty) when I started watching porn on the internet and I wasn't really attracted to the actual forbiddiness of it so much as I was just really curious & wanted to learn about sex. I ended up watching all different sorts of porn to see what was all the fuss about and to try and answer questions about myself and who I was attracted to. It's pretty much how I first discovered my own sexuality and that I'm only attracted to girls. I totally freaked at first when I started to realize I was gay and just kept forcing myself to watch straight porn to try and convince myself I was normal. I wish I had never even started watching it because I really don't think I was old enough to handle it back then...

I was about 16 or so, almost 17. I think the first thing I typed into Google Images was "boobs."

16 or so. We found we could get "the Playboy Channel" on cable by futzing with the wires and buttons. It was in black and white, the picture was only passable, and there was no sound. But hey, boobies. In a weird way, it may have delayed my realization that I was gay, since the Playboy Channel focused so squarely on the women, that even in the sex scenes, it was like they weren't there. Had I seen more male nudity, I'm guessing I would've latched onto it sooner.

^ When we were around 10 my cousins and would watch the "blue porn" from the playboy channel. Back then it was the coolest thing ever! xD

I started around 9-10. Mostly because of my cousins and my uncle's magazines haha

It was hardcore German porn. I was 12. : )
I haven't watched porn for enjoyment for quite a long time now, though.

First time? Probably around 7-8. Regularly? 13. Why? It just seemed like the right thing to do at that stage in my life.

I think I was probably around 13 or so, I really cannot remember for sure. But I'm really glad that I did because it was how I found out I was gay. I remember that I would watch straight porn, but when looking for videos, I would only click on the ones with cute guys. And then once I accidentally was led to a gay video and that's when I switched over. Porn also taught me a lot about sex, without it I would have absolutely no idea what to do.

Erm... Yeah I've never watched porn in my life apart from some twats I used to know at school years again who got off on it (I think it was girl on girl porn), but I barely recall any of it. Not my thing and I doubt I'll ever watch it.

I probably started looking at porn when i was about 11. Unlike a lot of people, I never watched straight porn first. How it took me so long to come out is beyond me. I have always watched gay porn and never even had the slightest desire to watch straight porn. But I used to watch it probably three times a week, but now that i'm a full grown adult, I watch porn before I go to bed and get up every morning lol

The general age seems to be about 13. Around that age I wasnt watching porn, I was... and I am not proud of this but... I was going on chat rooms, lying about my age and stuff. I kept it safe I guess, I never showed my face or naked body, I never gave out my address or phone number, I never met anyone. I just chatted dirty-ly. I at that age had an inkling I wasnt straight, and I found it hard to "talk" with guys. As time passed I found erotic literature, and on the sides of those websites, there was pornographic images witch lead into that. But its more of the connection between two people that I like, not the acts portrayed in each form. Nowadays there is a combination of the last two. Pornography is used less than the literature. I like using my imagination and there isnt that terrible music

Fourteen, I guess. and GASP I'm a girl haha

I started sneaking around to look at pictures of naked women when I was probably about fourteen. Real hardcore porn didn't come until probably fifteen or sixteen. I know I had pictures from sports illustrated swimsuit edition on my walls by about that time... lol

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Like this, but I'm still not out. I started to look at porn at about 13, gay porn only. When I was 16, I started to look at straight porn too. Now, I look at both, but the high majority is gay porn. I honestly don't know if I'm forcing myself to look at straight porn or not, but I have this weird like of watching guys going down on girls, even though I'm fairly certain I'm gay.

When I was like 7 my dad took me in to his office when he had to work on a Saturday. This other worker brought their son in, who was like 13. They left us in a room to play or whatever while they did their work. After a few minutes, the kid said "Do you like to look at naked ladies?" and then showed me internet porn for the first time. Later my parents found out and I'm sure the kid got in major trouble and I got in trouble.

Anyway that whole thing made me afraid to look at porn for a long time, so I didn't really start looking in earnest until I was 14 and couldn't help myself anymore (who isn't just a giant bundle of hormones held together by acne at 14?) Even then, it was pretty ambiguous-to-straight porn. Didn't really look at gay porn until college.
