I expect many of the people who would be okay, if not ecstatic, about their children viewing heterosexual pornography in their teens would be far less lackadaisical about them viewing homosexual pornography at the same age.

Isn't that a bit stereotypical? I assume you're referring to anal penetration. That seems to happen quite regularly in hetero relatonships as well.

I can't say that surprises me - faith groups have not usually approved of it. This hasn't changed, either. I'm acquainted with a Christian woman much my age who is generally fairly sensible, but who regards masturbation as a deeply sinful activity, and has gone out of her way to exhort her children not to do it.

Today I briefly compared notes with a colleague who also teaches sixth form PSHE. Her experience squared with mine; the three most common subjects for the girls' questions are masturbation and the vexed matters of "Normal" and Swallowing. (The girls pretty much take it for granted that fellatio will form a part of their sexual relationships, but many are unsure about what ought to happen once matters have reached a conclusion.)

In general, I fear that this is probably correct - but with one exception. I would imagine that a lot of fathers (especially) are really not all that bothered about their sons (specifically) watching porn in their teenaged years. Are those fathers (especially) all that bothered if that porn is of the lesbian kind?

As I said earlier, our immediate family are quite comfortable being naked around each other, as well as weeing with the door open.

However, the last couple of days bemason has started facetiming* his friends whilst wandering around the house. So we have to be a bit on our guard now! We could tell him to confine it to his room, but we quite like having his friends 'around' virtually as we can join in the conversation and get a feel** for who he's matey with.

* like skyping
**settle down.

Interestingly... on the internet, you're more likely to pick up an CTD (cyber transmitted disease ) surfing for god, than surfing for sex.

Somehow, that gladdens my heart. Just a little.

A good ten years or so ago I was watching a documentary about porn, and people in the industry were complaining about how "it's all going downhill". Now that anybody with a camera and a willing friend or two can make pornography, the drive has been towards ever more extreme genres. Basic old-fashioned "a guy and a girl screwing" doesn't get a look-in any more.

I agree that children of any age should know what the human animal looks like. And once a child is old enough to begin to be curious about sex, an occasional sneak-peek at Playboy (or the video equivalent) is more likely to do them good than harm. The problem is that the majority of porn on offer nowadays -- not just on the internet, but on video and even in magazines -- is stomach-turning.

I can't help feeling that 'stomach-turning' suggests someone is doing it wrong.....

Why on Earth would you assume such a thing? I was referring to two persons of the same gender rather than one person of each. Nothing more.

I read that as 'weeping', and could not work out how the state of the door had anything to do with it.
Hopefully no cause for tears in bemahouse.

Only for those who see me weeing with the door open.*

*oh dear, that sounds much ruder than I intended.

I think we should stop this bit of conversation....
