A new scholarly analysis suggests that the more straight guys, especially those who are less educated, watch pornographic videos, the more they warm to same-sex marriage. The reason: Porn opens their […]

September 28, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – It’s a situation too many parents find themselves in nowadays: they stumble across their child’s web browser history, or walk into his room and catch him in the act – viewing porn.

The great conundrum is: what to do about it? For many parents the next step might be to install some quality blocking software, have a good heart-to-heart talk with their child about sex, and put the family computer in a public place.

But one father has taken a very different approach. After discovering his 13-year-old son’s porn habit while repairing his computer, the Reddit user going by the name of IrrelevantNinja penned a letter telling his son that he “couldn’t be more proud” of him, and suggesting some “safe” porn sites that wouldn’t infect his computer with viruses.

TENS of thousands of Australians spend up to five hours a day watching porn.

That’s right; a huge number of us may spend up to 35 hours a week watching online sex videos. That’s almost as many hours as most 9-5 workers put in.

The addiction is having a crippling affect on personal lives and relationships, says Dr Phil Watts, who is a porn researcher and psychologist. He adds that the problem often gets worse over time, as porn can condition the brain to progressively seek out “harder” pornography.
