I recently bought a ps3 off my friends 14 year old son and last night connected it to the Internet so could use netflix, was looking through the Internet history and found lots of searches for porn and lesbian sex what should I do? I feel my options are a) tell his mum what I know b) tell him and not say anything to his mum or c) say nothing to either of them

Keep quiet. No good can come if telling either of them in my humble opinion.

Say nothing.

If he was 10/11/12 I'd be concerned but at 14 I think some sexual interest is normal. You'll just end up mortifying him and he'll still be finding some way to look at it elsewhere.

I remember being 14 and watching euro trash on my tv in my bedroom which was the old equivalent of porn tv for teens and I'd be horrified if someone told my mum!

Tell his mum. She's your friend, your loyalty is to her. She needs to know what's going on to be able to speak to him accordingly. You don't know the situation, how it got there, whether it was him, someone else putting it there, willing, under duress etc etc. Your friend needs the tools to able to do what she needs to. Internet porn is not the same as looking at underwear catalogues in the bushes c1990. She needs to know.

Start a conversation with mum about parental controls - does she have them if so which ones etc, if not then see if she is willing to research them together. You would be addressing the issue without anyone knowing.

have spoken to my friend and she already knew about it, turns out one of his friends put him up to it and he was open and honest with her

It's not a bad thing! I was watching porn at 13/14 its not a big deal. teenage boys AND girls watch porn and its not a bad thing at all. we all masturbate lol its natural and normal.
just say to the mother "I found porn on the ps3, have you had the talk with your DS yet?" and allow her to bring the topic up with her DS if she hasn't already
