Pornography, and the desire to look at stimulating images, is not shameful. It can be very helpful to the individual before they take partners in learning about their own desires and wants, and in finding out what it is that truly "turns them on".
Many christian organizations are calling pornography "the new drug". They claim it is harmful and addictive - but the root of their objection is that they consider it a sin. The false idea of "sin" is to cause men and women to feel "guilt" and keep bringing them on their knees to god and his prophets, popes, ministers, and priests so that they can "repent".
There is no sin in viewing or in making pornography. You do not need to feel guilt when you look at it, or when you think about the images. It is a natural thing, just like masturbation.
After you take a partner or partners, it should never be allowed to become a substitute for your partner(s). However, it may be used within a partnership, if desired, to enhance the relationship. Many partnerships even make it for themselves, and some even elect to share what they make with others.
There is no shame or sin in this, and it can be a great way to continue to explore, learn about, and share your sexuality, and overcome the ideas of shame and sin.
Young people need to be careful in making such images, however. Police and prosecutors have been known to charge boys and girls under 18 that send each other nude "sexts" with either possession of child pornography or manufacture of child pornography. While we feel that is a serious overreach in the law, and we strongly discourage public officials from abusing their power and authority, you need to use discretion - caution - when doing anything like that. You do not want to get in trouble with the law, and we do not encourage anyone to break the law. Doing so will make you a slave to the government as a prisoner of the legal system. That is not where you want to be.
There is no sin or shame in pornography. It is not a "public health crisis". The desire to see it is normal.
It can be a useful tool to learn about yourself, and a way to bring yourself closer to your partner and to others that you may decide to share it with.
So mote it be.
