Dear Prudence: My daughter reads pornographic fan fiction.

emmagrant01:

Q. 13-Year-Old Daughter Reading Porn Disguised as Fan Fiction: I discovered my 13-year-old daughter has been reading fan fiction for a very popular all boy band which describes in explicit detail sex acts between the male band members. I immediately instituted parental control and blocked the sites. We had a brief talk—need a longer one, but I’m not sure what to say? This can’t be good for her at 13—reading about explicit sex between ANY two people. Am I overreacting?

Okay, but THIS part of Prudie’s answer: “I’m guessing that the writers of this series didn’t think their most avid fans would be teenage girls!”

BRB LMFAO

So yeah, raise your hand if you: 

(a) were reading porny fanfic online at the age of 13

(b) or would have done if the internet had existed then

(c) or otherwise still found a way to read erotic fiction

(d) or wrote your own erotic fiction at that age because you couldn’t get your hands on any to read.

All of the above for me, basically. Not that parents shouldn’t be aware of what their kids are doing on the internet, but generally speaking, erotic fanfic is a pretty darn good way for teenagers to start exploring their sexuality. And though we older fic writers aren’t writing it for that audience, we do know they’re probably reading it. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing — I really, truly don’t.
