Gay porn seems to be causing a great deal of trouble also. Gay boys are growing up with very unrealistic expectations of what real sex is like.

PornHub is full of free videos that showcase men having sex with one another in ways that are guaranteed to cause discomfort and even pain. Because the videos are meant as entertainment, they they don’t show many of the steps that lead up to sex that is fulfilling for both partners.

They usually don’t show men being respectful of one another and caring about their partner’s pleasure.

And there is a lot of activity that verges on or crosses the line of actual violence.

I don’t actually have a problem with adolescents seeing sexual activity, but if I had a teen son who was gay I certainly wouldn’t want him to be watching this kind of porn. He be learning all sorts of things that would set him up as an inconsiderate lover and partner.
