First off, I don't think of pornography as something bad and it's true that nudity is natural to children. I remember around that age some of my male friends showed me some of the porn they downloaded and my reaction was rather indifferent. In the end we were only making fun about it. At least around 12-14 I guess it's normal to view some porn, if only to gather further knowledge of what you already know in theory.

Still, I think not all children are ready for this at the same age. Some might feel disgusted when imagining mummy and daddy would do such a thing.
Also there are other things which I'm not sure 10 year olds could cope with, like fetish stuff, cum shots and so on. As first impressions of sex I think hardcore porn is really not appropriate. I wouldn't be surprised if these kids would have a rather bizarre idea of "making love" later on, and we're talking about virgins here.
It's okay that it's not legal for all ages. There's lots of pedophiles which sure would like to watch porn with a 12 year old. In this case it's one of those rare occasions I agree with the restrictions, because I think it's necessary protection.

hmm am i considered as "older members of CR" because im a bit older than you?? O.O
i will answer anyway!

yes i do know of children whom ive caught viewing stuff like that. haha my little cousin xD but i suppose it wasnt his fault.. it was a pop up.. and he just started clicking on it afterwards.. i solved it by going "EEWWW WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT!! IM GOING TO TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS AT SCHOOL!!!" ahahah that pretty much solved it. then parental control happened so.. yeah.. we dont worry about that anymore

why is it a big deal?
well, i suppose because if youre exposed to this kind of stuff at a younger age, then youd be experimenting at a younger age... and i really dont want to think about little kids humping each other here and there...

and by 18.. i guess because they figured they wont be able to stop you anymore!

This is difficult stuff and would take a knowledgeable historian or an otherwise well informed person to answer. But, I'll give some thoughts.

1. not really. 2. no. later.

"Nudity is only natural." Be careful about calling things natural. I would hold its also natural of us to develop and use clothes, for protection, warmth, etc.

Why is it a big deal? Basically the people against it argue that it is harmful. Religious reasons is one. To protect children from becoming part of child-porn. Adults typically want to believe kids are innocent. Etc.

It depends on what we're talking about for pronography. There is perfectly normal Playboy type stuff, explicit Hustler type stuff, and then extreme fetish type stuff.

I think young kids are going to be curious so it's no big deal if they sneak a peak at stuff like Playboy, but anything else may give them a warped view of sex.

And to be honest, building and hiding a porn stash is one of those rights of passage in my book.

I was very sheletered growing up, home schooled, private schooled, and we didn't get the internet til I was in about 7th grade. So I probably started investigating porn at around age 12, which I think is around the most guys do. Well, maybe not anymore. But back then, yeah.

I think the restriction to age is perfectly fine, though I'd lower the age to 16, as well as the age of someone being "legal" down to 16 as well. Christ people, the Puritans used to marry off their daughters as soon as they hit puberty to avoid them having premarital sex. We can be at least attempt at being as reasonable as they were.

yeah that doesn't make any sense.... your old enough to go to war at 18 which is also how old you need to buy porn.... on a related note, i think anybody in military service should be allowed to drink (at the very least on a military installation) for a similar reason to what you stated

sorry but i fail to see the relationship between porn and war...

The age limit for porn is good as it is but parents should know that by granting their child permission to use the internet they are also basically granting him/her permission to go watch porn. (this is not necessarily true for everyone)

i personally would not mind is a 10-14 year old is expose to nudity but watching a hardcore porn movie is totally different thing.

pornography is illegal for 18+ because that is when you reach the age of majority, and should be able to make your own choices.

plus it can have a negative effect on devoloping young minds, nudity is natural, there is nothing wrong with nudity.... so i think you have your definitions a little criss crossed porno entails sexual deeds, and therefore things you wouldn't see in a nudist colony. and it is thosse sexual deeds that are being performed that is illegal to minors.

there is plenty of access to artistic nude photography online, and it's nothing like pornographic content.

The law only limits you to how you percieve it. you should read up on some laws, you'll be really surprised.

Amen to that. :)~

Pornography to me isn't "real sex". Meaning I wouldn't want my kids to watch porn before having a sexual experience and then trying to emulate it. Of course that's completely unrealistic. I mean like Azrael I didn't have internet access until I was about 12, and of course I did my fair share of exploring. Thankfully I was well enough in my head to know what was real and what was just for fapping.

I don't feel that any law should be changed. I'm ok with having to be 18 to buy pornography at a store. I mean how annoying would it be with the local 16 yr olds giggling at the local adult store. Could that become the new teen hangout?

Besides, anyone under the age of 16 could find free pornography on the internet if they try hard enough.

i suppose im not supposed to post but i got sooo much to say

apparentlyage limits dont define shit except a way to scare underaged viewers. i believe there should be an actual limit but not 18 maybe 13 because children think about that stuff at the high school age. Plus society doesnt want it to be viewed by kids underaged then all pop-ups would be gone for most kids that i know discovered hentai or porn through a pop-up while searching for anime downloads.

my comment on nudity: it isnt bad but immature people take it to the extent of being "ready to get some" while mature people can take note of the body structure. Nudity is the background of sexual education (an actual class that starts in 8th grade) in which is used to know what happens in male and female bodies. Porn and hentai are just showing the actually happening of reproduction and some safe sex. Besides they let you watch a woman give birth why wont they show how the baby got there???

once again im not supposed to post here

Restricting minors from pornography comes after some careful thinking by our government (in fact by many governments worldwide). By putting a law in their country stating that minors are not allowed to view pornography materials will somehow put some mental reminder to minors who are viewing these materials.

Granted that many will still view them secretly out of curiousity, this might be better as compared to them viewing these in public. Questions of the opposite sex always seems to be a mystery to the young and explaining to them makes many adults uncomfortable thus using the "prohibited by law" excuse might help make the job of adults easier.

Well as long as they are not doing anything that harms others, i dont see a need to fuss over minors surfing for porn. Of course if an adult catches a minor surfing porn, appropraite actions should be taken. As the saying goes, you can do anything you want. - Just dont get caught

Hey everyone , I'd like to ask parents or the older members of CR here something about it. However, you must meet some requirements.

1. Do you have children, or know someone who has children that are in a common viewing age of pornographic material on the internet? (ages 10 - 14 are most common.)

2. While you were around that age span as mentioned above, were you a viewer of pornography?

What is your opinion on young people viewing pornography? While the legal age is 18 or older for most countries, this is not something that should define your opinion. I want your opinion on younger people viewing pornography, if it should be legalized for all ages, and what you think of it.

Look at some factors of it as well:
By age seven you probably know both genitals.
Nudity is only natural.

So, why is it a "big" deal that it is only legalized by ages eighteen and up?

Thanks for answering these questions, and thanks for your time. : )


1) Yes
2) and Yes as well, You can I say I learned that stuff early on. It never really effected me or changed my perspective on sex. But as an adolescent boy, like all boys yes I was a viewer of it. It was the fascination of the opposite sex, the curiosity that egged me on.
I was really nervous, because when I did have "sex" for the first time I wanted to make sure I seemed experienced. I dont know what the psychological side of things for males when it comes to being inexperienced, i just didn't want to look stupid.. I wanted to look like I knew what I was doing.

Personally I have no major problem with younger people looking at pr0n.
Kids in the 60's stole they're dad's moldy old playboys, it's the same thing
in modern day. P0rn is just viewed through a different medium., but it's essentially the same thing. As long as the kids aren't going out there and getting pregnant @ 13 then Im fine with it.. it's when babies are having babies is when I have a problem with it.
