How common is it for teenage boys to watch a lot of porn? It is worryingly easy to find it online.

As the parent of a teenage daughter I worry about the expectations of the boys she goes out with, and how it will affect her self esteem.

parental control filters on majority of household wifi would prevent this

however when boy out the house they would only be limited to their 4g download data monthly allowance

i dont have proper answer for you, and hope any educated kid would realise porn not always very realistic

Incredibly common for them to want to and search it out. This is where you take appropriate action, talk to them and put blocks in place.

Very. I watched a fair amount of porn myself as a teenager, it's not just boys.

Blocks and parental filters will do nothing to stop a teenage boy (or girl) look for porn. Filters are good for 5 year olds, not teenagers.
Most teenagers will look, particularly boys, there is very little you can do to stop them. However, you can and should talk to them about porn. They need to know the truth about what it is, the fact that it is not real life.
