Hello my friend. Your son needs to develop social skills with peers his own age. Since he has few friends and seems to like solitude, he uses the porn as an escape from dealing with social contact with others. It may have become more of an addiction that he cannot control. It is natural that young boys are curious about such images but when it is happening over and over even though he has been reprimanded, then it is cause for concern. If you have already talked to your son at length about the issue, then the next step would be to seek professional assistance from a psychologist who can help your son in overcoming his addictive behavior as well as help your son to develop social skills which will assist him in fostering social interactions with his peers.
