Guess what I found in my sons closet?

  1. Hi All,

    I am not sure I am supposed to feel about this, yesterday when I was putting clothes in my sons closet I found 5 porno tapes!!! I couldn't believe it. My son is 18 and I don't usually go in his closet, I just thought I would be a good mom and bring the clean clothes up from the basement. I will never do that again. I don't know if I should say something to him or not. Have any of you been in this situation and if so how did you handle it.

    :imbar

    Sounds REALLY NORMAL to me.

    I once asked my son [after we both heard a reference in a show he was watching] about masturbation. His reply: why do you think I spend so much time in the shower? I just told him that was a good place for that, it was a "private" [no pun intended] thing.

    Depending on your family's values, you might want to remind him about safe sex, etc.

    From what I have learned about the male species......it's what they consider "a normal manly thing to do".......so go figure, Mom.......

    If male animals could watch porno instead of having to wait until mating season to "get some", they'd be right in front of the t.v. so much they'd almost miss mating season each year. :chuckle

    when my 22 years old son was living with me, he had the "books" and passed them own to his now, 13 years old brother. well, i had a talk with my 13 years old and my 22 said, "he's a guy, isn't he". guys! normal, guess it is.....headache for mom, well its and individual call.

    Sounds pretty normal to me. I found a tape in my son's underwear drawer when he was 15 and never asked where he got it from because I figured that if he wanted me to know about it, he would have told me. I did wonder where all the conditioner for my hair was disappearing to until I found an empty bottle in his bedroom!!!!!!!! The little rascal. Got some packets of surgical lube at work and put them in his room...The conditioner seemed to stay put after that until I used it...for what it was designed for. Hey, that conditioner is pretty expensive. I can't afford a bottle a week!

    LMAO@michelle...

    DH had to have a talk with his nearly 14yo son when he went to pick up his other son friday....(14 yo stayed home,he had bowling this weekend..) We have each accidentally walked in through an open door when each boy was practicing the art of self love...don't mean they were both jerkin' their gherkin at the same time...just mean on separate occ, anyway..He also has a "real" GF now..and there is alot of unsupervised time in that household. Mom gets out of work late, golfs, goes out, etc...

    so, anyway..monkeyspanking is normal....i wouldn't worry about an 18 yo having porn...unless it were hard core..then just would bother me and warrent a talk about respect for your partner..etcetc...

    one woman i work with refuses to admit that her 17 yo probably think sbaou tsex, probably has had sex..and no doubt chokes his chicken...whatever..she actually gets pi$$ed off when the topic comes up at work(pardon the pun) because her little darling would never do that....

    You have to be sensitive to the fact that most men's memories of their first sexual experience involves a feeling of being lonely...........
    as we were all on our own at the time!

    Hmmmmm.....seems like most men's memories of their LAST sexual experience will involve the same thing from my neck of the woods.

    Hmmmmm.....guess I don't see myself in that analogy, donmurray because my first sexual experience did NOT leave me feeling LONELY.....it left me feeling very very LOVED AND LOVELY. I'm willing to acknowledge that men and women MAY view their first sexual experiences like day and night from one another, so I respect your take on this since you are a man. :kiss

    I agree...normal. Found lesbian porn on my computer recently, my son downloaded it. I did ask him about it, b/c I do NOT want to get porn spam until the day I die. So, computer pron is banned. In fact I suggested he ask his dad to buy him some magazines or videos. For guys, they like visual stimulation to get things...going. He's 18? Perfectly normal.

    Michelle, conditioner? Come to think of it, I have been having to buy conditioner much more often lately.....Things that make ya go Hhhhhmmmm.

    I heard several male comedians refer to how often young males spank the monkey, it was a LOT, and they think about sex like every two minutes, so sounds normal to me!

    Perfectly normal...
    sadly enough, they don't outgrow it either...

    A pretty normal thing for a warm blooded 18 year old male to do. You could have found a lot worse.
