On the one hand, it could be said that “boys will be boys”, however
an 11 yo. having access to such material is not healthy, either for
their body or their minds.

Sexual theme’s are pervasive in today’s media, and your son needs to
understand that sex is not just a physical function, but that there
is an equally powerful, and unavoidable, emotional component. If he
is to have healthy relationships in the future, he doesn’t need those
images in his mind now.

Granted, puberty sucks, but I believe, as parents [I’ve got 9 grandkids]
we need to teach our kids [young men especially] about what is good, and
bad for their emotional well being.
