Is it strange that my husband watches teenage porn when our daughter's only 18?

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband is 50 and has been looking at pornography involving teenagers.

I’m disgusted, especially because our daughter is 18.

I am 52 and not a prude. But when I saw on our laptop what he’d been looking at, I was horrified.

We have looked at pornography in the past when we need a bit of help to “get in the mood” so I’m not against it.

But I’ve never looked at anything like that.

I hear that sometimes things pop up on a computer. Is it possible that this happened accidentally?

DEIDRE SAYS: Possibly. But he’d have to click on it for it to show in the history.

The algorithms on pornography sites take us to more and more extreme content and this is why it’s addictive for some.

It may not be something your husband was actively searching for.

Find a moment to tell him what you stumbled across and explain that you’d prefer him to access pornography as part of your sex life and not alone, or at least use sites where those involved are mature adults.
