A 32-year-old member asked:

Do kids who watch porn on tv hotels get influenced?

Probably: What we experience influences us all, minimally to maximally, positively to negatively. The younger the person, generally the more impressionable and easily influenced. To a child, porn presents confusing and age-inappropriate activity. It titillates with fantasy and generally unrealistic scenarios. All this easily could be harmful. Children should not watch porn or violent shows.

Certainly: Kids who watch porn get exposed to a totally unrealistic and often violent depiction of women (or men) as objects of sex. This can only have negative effects later in life.
