Can Eleven Year Old Get in Trouble Watching Porn

Published: July 01, 2013
Dear TeenHealthFX,
Can I Get in Trouble For Watching Porn? Hi, I'm an eleven year old male and I have Been watching porn for sometime now. I realize that masturbating and watching porn at this age is normal, but adults say you can get in trouble for it. I wanted an official answer so I came to this site. Can I get in trouble for watching porn?

Dear Can Eleven Year Old Get in Trouble Watching Porn,

If you mean legally, in many states the same rules would apply to you the same as they would to adults. If you were to download/upload, post, trade, purchase or traffic in any way, porn that involves minors, you would be in serious trouble. Also sending porn, even where the actors were all of age to a minor, would constitute a crime. The penalties might not be the same but it would be unlikely that you would avoid any consequences because of your age.

As far as mom and dad go our guess is that you would get into big trouble. While it is not unusual for older teens to take an interest in sexually explicit material it is unusual for an 11 year old. TeenHealthFX is worried that someone older is encouraging you to engage in this activity. If that is the case it is very important you share this information with your parents right away for your own sake. The other person would be in trouble not you. You are going to have to trust TeenHealthFX on this.

It is not a good idea for an 11 year to watch porn even if it is his idea. 11 year old doesn’t have the cognitive capacity or emotional maturity to process what it going on in the movie. There is the strong possibility that they would get a skewed view of what a normal health sexual relationship should look like. It also increases the chances that he will become conditioned so that he can only achieve climax in a limited number of ways.
