Question

Is watching gay porn any worse than normal straight porn? And does it mean I am gay if I like watching gay porn because I want to compare myself to other boys, but I still like girls and find them attractive?


Answer

All pornography is bad for you because it features people having sex in sinful circumstances, whether it is fornication, adultery, or homosexuality. Watching gay pornography doesn't mean you have had sex with other guys, but it will likely encourage you to try it if the opportunity arose. "For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God" (I Thessalonians 4:3-5). You have to remember that what you focus on will influence your behavior.
