    Totally normal, Miss Mary. Sometimes I turn on the TV and it does this weird thing where the last channel you watched, there's like a flicker of it before it goes to the channel you've just selected.

    And I saw a flicker of one of those porn channels. For a second I thought 'Ew, why was Dad watching that?!' but then I just thought, 'Hey, it's obviously normal and widespread or the channels wouldn't exist, he's a bloke after all.' And my parents are kinda splitting up right now so it's expected anyway.

    So yeah, it's a really normal thing and I wouldn't worry about it, put it to the back of your mind and don't think about it

    Just cause he's old. He's still a bloke.

    Yes, he's probably watching porn, and yes, it's really really EEEUWWW but you can't do anything about it. Just let him get on with his gross habit.
    Yeah, I mean men and women having sex, how EEEUWWW :wtf:

    As I have said before. I was not EEUWWing at the porn. I was EEUUWWing at the idea of parents watching it whilst their children could catch them at it.

    so you admit you watch porn? haha, thats eww!!!



    Anyway, here's what you do:

    Go onto this 'porn computer' and look at his history in all the browsers you have. If there is nothing here, look in the recycle bin.

    If you still cant find anything, download recuva, do a full search of the drive for deleted items and look through to find any 'certain' files. In here you will find deleted (as in deleted from the computer, AND the recycle bin) pictures from internet explorers cache (this means that any website you go on, any picture that you download has a chance of staying on the hard drive).

    Once you have found some pictures, try to see if you can find the link to where they came from, and try to drop these links into conversation.

    "So dad, how *cough* insert link *cough* was your day today?"

    *edit*

    I had to put a hyphon in the link because it automatically put it as a hyperlink. Actually im going to remove it incase the website exists.

    Normal to watch porn.

    Chat rooms and things like that for some are fine but I don't find them fine tbh. I mean, you're talking to people on these chat rooms about sex when you're married and stuff - to me that's odd.

    What's the big deal? It's not like people change any bit when they have kids. If I caught my dad at it, I'd obviously just leave him alone and ignore it. What is there even to talk about (think someone suggested talking?)? Chat rooms are fun too, sex ones or not.

    OK long story cut short: a long time ago (i'm talking about months) I started noticing a curious habit in my dad. Everytime he used the computer and I walked past the room where he was, or got into the room to get something, he'd suddenly turn off the monitor, or he'd directly turn off the computer. At first I thought that maybe the computer had crashed or something, so I asked him once why he'd do that, and he said "it crashed". This seemed fine to be but then I was like "hold on, this computer doesn't crash very often".

    I left things as they were for a while but now I have discovered something else. My dad goes into chat rooms way too often. And I'm talking about sex chat rooms (I've seen them and 80% of people who go there just want to meet other people). Also, and I don't whether this has got anything to do with this problem, but over the past few months my dad has become increasingly paranoid about me using the computer, he doesn't want for me to stay on the computer at night, when all I do is play or chat with my friends, or use facebook.

    Is it normal that married men with children watch porn/go to chat rooms? What should I do? I would have never thought that my dad would do something like this, coz for example when we are watching TV he does the zapping, and whenever he sees a movie or something which has kisses or sex he immediately changes the channel... and it's quite annoying. I'm not 11 anymore.

    Thanks.
    youll just have to let him get on with it and not think about it. he still has needs however old he is im afraid to say

    Maybe he's just on TSR?
    Lol Because TSR is so pornographic :p:

    Personally I find it weird because I know my dad doesn't watch porn. But he watched American Beauty once which is totally different.

    OP, how old is your dad?
