Watching porn is fine, but it's how you act as a result that really matters

@Brian36 well it turns me on and everything

Of course it does. That's what it's designed to do. It turns me on too. So once you're turned on, what do you do to remedy that feeling?

@Brian36 I just sort of touch my self … i never really talked about it with anyone so sorry if im shy

How often do you watch porn? Does it effect your life? Are you skipping appointments or important events to watch porn?

@Brian36 i watch it every once in a while, sorta, and now

I understand the Christian viewpoint about pornography, masturbation, and sex. I do not agree with it at all. Your parents are Christian, are you Christian as well? What do you truly believe about porn and masturbation? If you disagree as I do about the Christian views about it, that's nothing to feel guilty about. It's a normal exploration of your own body, which you own. If you feel the need to masturbate, you should freely be able to do so without any judgement

@Brian36 i dont know if i am or if im not at some points yes but others no I feel like its right but is still do it and after i feel shame because my sister knows about it and she hates me

if its making you a recluse then you have to find a balance

@Gravy I am trying i really am

There's nothing to feel guilty or ashamed about. It's natural. If your parents don't understand that, nor the Christian ideals support that, then that's their issue, not yours. Keep in mind also that Christianity dates back many millennia. We are living in a different world now

@Brian36 ya thats true its just hard that my family knows and they disapprove so much but what can i really do about it?

There's nothing you can do about how your family feels about it. It's how they feel, not how you feel. If they judge you then let em cuz it's gonna be their loss because they aren't taking any time to understand you or get to know you as an individual. It's your body, not theirs. If you wanna masturbate then do it

@Brian36 ya i get it i wish i freely could but thank you

You can freely do it. Don't let the false justifications of your family or a somewhat obsolete religion control what you do. It's your body. You own it.

@Brian36 thanks for the reassurance it helps a lot

You're welcome. You have to stand up for yourself otherwise nothing will ever change

Masturbation is natural part of human sexality. I don't believe watching porn is. It's more like an addictive drug which in many cases people find themselfs chasing the high. I smashed my computer problem solved.
