Default Arrested for watching porn?

Ok, so im 16 and i occasionally watch regular porn. I don't watch child porn or anything else. Is it illegal to just simply watch porn on the internet and not distribute it? and can i be arrested?

Technically you do need to be 18. But who's gonna arrest you? And basically every guy would be thrown in jail then

Just saying, based on your IP, your ISP (Internet Service Provider), know what sites are visited, (but I doubt they even check). They don't know who visits them though. As for being arrested if they found out you were watching it, I'm not sure what may happen.

The only way you can be arrested in most countries in the West for watching porn is if it is child porn you are watching. As far as regular porn, you should be fine. I think the only countries where watching porn is illegal is the Muslim countries, especially Saudi Arabia, and then maybe some of the Communist Countries like Vietnam and North Korea.

Technically you're supposed to be 18 to watch porn but everybody does it.

Technically you have to be 18 but pretty much every guy has watched porn under 18 so it's VERY unlikely...

Your parents could be fined if you were caught, but the chances of that are extremely slim.

You're really supposed to be 18-21, but in some areas, it's not allowed at all and you could be arrested. But places like that are not very common.

There's probably some law that could get you or your parents in trouble in someway but it is never enforced

you have to be 18 and if you have any kind of kiddie porn and some place like FBI or CIA were watching your activity they could shut down your computer and lock it. im sure you'd see a big symbol and a lot of words then you would have like 5 min to live before jail time.

DanthemMan is always there to help so just beckon my name and ill be there! or you can just pm me lmbo.

If you're watching porn in the privacy of your own home, and not producing it yourself, your risk is really really low.

There's some laws that occasionally get people in trouble:
- Child porn, which you mentioned.
- Masturbating to, and watching porn in a public place. Many states around the USA have laws prohibiting "gross indecency" which could include jerking off in public to porn.
- certain anti-gay laws. Some states have laws that are used to target gay guys, but generally this falls into the above category. If you keep your pants on in public, you should be ok.

Curious? Feel free to ask.

I love chatting with new people.

That's to *buy* porn, and that law really exists not to lock up horny 16 year-olds watching porn, but to stop sleazy bodegas from *selling* porn to horny 16 year-olds.

If you're just watching free porn, I'm not sure it's illegal. I would guess you may have been violating your ISP's terms of service, but again, those exist to stop people from illegally distributing porn, and are really not there to stop individuals from looking at it.

No. You're not going to be arrested.

The police would have to have probably cause to receive a warrant to get track you and your IP address and even then, who says it's you using that computer?

Pursuing your porn use and the horny teens that all of us here are would be an insult to all of the people who can really use the billions dollar in taxes it'd take
