Hey boot,

Welcome to Scarleteen! [Smile] We'd like to help support you with this, but we'd like to hear some specifics. What exactly are you talking about, is this about porn, by any chance? If so, I recommend you check out this article: Looking, Lusting and Learning: A Straightforward Look at Pornography

I'm looking forward to hearing from you again. [Smile]

You're welcome! Is there anything you'd like to about, boot? As you read, the bottom line is that we don't see porn usage as something that's flat-out bad or good but really depends on what you're comfortable with. If it's something you want to avoid, then I saw certainly go on avoiding it. However, if you're seeing something like a power dynamic that you're uncomfortable with, you could also find something that's more too your liking because there's so much (and so much variety) out there. [Smile]

I think you may also find the following links helpful; you'll see a number of Sexpert Advice articles and more, although there's some overlap between the two terms.

Hello again, I just thought of something else; because they are often linked [Wink] , here are some articles on masturbation, too. (And, yep, we think it's not just totally fine but a good thing!)
