Depends on the material here.

If we're talking something like R-rated movies, then I'd go with him. I mean, my mom let me watch things I probably shouldn't have, even at that age. As long as he/she was mature to handle it, I see no problem.


If it was something like Hentai or porn? Nope. Can watch that s**t when he/she is eighteen though if I caught them before hand, we'd have a nice discussion on how images in porn can be damaging.

Well, being 13, there's probably no doubt that the kid in question has already stumbled upon something at least semi not safe for work if given unblocked, open access, as well as via the word of… fellow teenage boys.

Having grown-up in the 90's with a computer in my room connected to the internet 24/7 and not being able to do a simple search without a porn pop-up I turned out relatively fine.

The various media including porn has risen and other issues such as crime (including sexual assaults) continually go down. I rather they do that then light something on fire, etc.

I wouldn't explicitly teach them, but the time I start seeing signs it's time to instruct them what is/isn't allowed - for example, why they aren't allows to look-up girls their own age, safe sites to use, etc. You can try to shelter and block them all you want, but the reality is they will figure out how to get around filters eventually or will simply go somewhere else.

Eh, I'd probably drop the book on him. A book with some very in depth anatomy, physiology, and psychology goes a long way. A legal discussion would also be in order to as to not only know the law but on what to do/say if accused of any shenanigans.

Now security, that's another issue if he can't keep his system from being compromised then there sure as hell will be a blacklist.

Or daughter. Of course. I was watching porn years before that.

Teens are very resourceful, but no, I wouldn't encourage it at that age as a parent.

If it's a teenage boy, I'd be more afraid of my drains mysteriously clogging.
I'd mainly tell him not to add homemade detergent to his socks, and to get a Kleenex or do it in the toilet. I wouldn't really care that much- I just hope don't have to hear it.

I don't even want to think about if I have a teenage girl doing that in the house.
I suppose I'll have to preach "Wash your hands, stinky" and "Febreeze and clean everything often, so nobody has to smell your musky room".

I wouldn't be ok with it. I would like to keep my kid's mind pure of bad and negative thoughts so they'd grow up to be a caring and nice person. I'd do my best to make sure they never watch porn, do drugs, have underage sex, party like I did. I regret so many of my decisions and I dont want my kid going down the same path.

I would, I found porn and hentai little younger than that and I don't think it had any negative impact. If I had a son and caught him watching that stuff, I would have some talk but not deny him watching it.

No, speaking as a dad i would not. Naturally exceptions can be made if its truly nothing explicit within a context but for the best part no.

You talk a big game, but you know you wouldn't.

I don't know what kind of girls you've been around, but unless it's full on sex sessions, I've never heard of female masturbation making a stinky room. Besides, you can't really orgasm until you've hit puberty, and if any of us remember, touching yourself before then usually became boring quickly.

I love embarrassing people,because I'm mean, so I will definitely call my kids stinky. Ain't no shame in my game
