From The Message Boards: I Saw My Dad Watching Porn

Dad Watching Porn

Harmless? Probably. Awkward? Definitely.



Porn is one of those awkward topics that you either talk about and accept, or never talk about and maybe even disapprove of. Whether you’re into it yourself or think it’s super degrading, there’s one thing for sure: none of us want to think about our parents watching it.

So what would you do if you saw your dad watching porn? This convo in the message boards caught our attention, and we wanna know: do you think it’s totally inappropriate for parents (or anyone) to be looking at porn? Or is it just a natural part of life by now? Check out what these gURLs have to say before you make up your mind:

Okay so my dad left his computer up and i needed to print a paper out for school. i had asked to use his computer first because NO ONE is ever allowed on it but him, even my mom. But when i opened a new tab all the top sites / most visited sites were porn websites. And that really just freaks me out and makes me feel very uncomfortable. I feel really disappointed in him because well he’s my dad and i feel like he is, in a way, cheating on my mom? And i know it couldn’t have been anyone else but him because like i said, NO ONE else is ever allowed on it and they were in the Most visited category, so that tells me he watches it often.

Idk what to do because this really bothers me but i dont want to talk to him about it because that would just be very weird and awkward, plus what could i really say? I really dont know what to do and i really need some advice or help.
Thank you so much gurls

This newscaster was caught on live TV looking at naked pics of Miranda Kerr. Imagine how he felt.

LittleBlonde replied, saying:
almost the exact same thing happened to me. it was almost 3 years ago though, and i never really brought it up to him but i think i was on his laptop in front of him and purposely opened the new tab thing so he would see, but i didnt say anything about the most visit and just kept going to the site i was going too, so obviously he realized. i havent seen it again so he either stopped or got better at hiding it.
but i felt the exact same way, it just made me sick to my stomach even though i realize its kinda human nature, just thinking of my mom and stuff !

artist.on.fire.13 replied, saying: That happened to me a while ago. Just think of it this way: EVERYBODY watches porn at one point on their lives, and he needs some way to please himself.

 

What do we think? Well, as much as some gURLs might not like it, porn is kind of everywhere these days, and it’s become way more acceptable for men (and gURLs!) to watch it. As long as your dad’s not addicted to it (and he’s at least trying to keep it to himself!) it shouldn’t be a problem.

Is it considered cheating? Technically, we say no. But we can agree to disagree, so let us know what you think. Who do you agree with the most? Tell us in the comments!

    I’m a young teen and a few years ago or so I sat beside my dad on a few hour plane ride. The first half was fine until i finished the movie on my iPod and looked over to my horror as he silently read an erotic story. I was pretty young and innocent but as soon as i saw the words “Slammed into her hard” I knew what it was about. I quickly looked back to my iPod and restarted the movie trying to forget what I saw, but the more I tried, the longer it stayed. Fast forward to today. I came home from school and went on his computer to use google and all that stuff, and I open a tab to facebook by accident, and I see a little group message pop up with a picture of a woman with her boobs sticking out, and my father replyi to it with “Nice” I don’t know what to do and I just hope the picture wasnt of the person he was talking to.
