No matter what, it isn't ok. it may be that he thinks that the DAN (exclamation point) doctor is a quack, but he should still discuss that with you.

There's nothing wrong with being freaked out and disgusted by pornography. There's also nothing wrong (again, in my opinion) with being turned on by pornography. I know that there are couples who...
