Generally not: unless it is excessive to the point at which it takes up time that otherwise would be spent strengthening friendships, dating, exercising, etc.Teen years are the training ground for these activities & behaviors. For this reason, I advise teens not to use pornography as a masturbation aid, as it can change the way they see the opposite gender, causing unhealthy/unrealistic attitudes & expectations.
