I know that porn in moderation is fine and that almost evryone my age (16) looks at it. But I'm still feeling slightly bad about looking at it afterwards. I enjoy looking at it and am comfortable with it, but nonetheless feel bad afterwards.

I need someone to tell me its fine as long as I don't get obsessed or anything.

Pornography is something many people use and enjoy; others want nothing to do with it for various reasons. If you feel comfortable with it, I don't see a problem! Pornography only becomes an addiction/compulsion when it interferes with normal activities like school, work, hanging out with family and friends, etc, which can happen with any pleasurable activity, sexual or otherwise.

I thought it might be worth getting into just why you feel bad after you watch porn, which is why I suggested your own thread to possibly discuss this. [Smile]

Lauren ur a champ =)

I don't know why I felt bad. It just lingers afterwards in the back of my mind

It has troubled me for a year, this is the first time I've seeked pro help.

Thanks a bunch, what you said will help me to feel fine after doing something that is normal and most people do!

Simon
