Message from Sam...  Ask Sam

Porn is meant for adults, but sometimes young people want to watch it too. I would be interested in hearing how porn affects you, especially if you feel it's become a problem.
 
Although I read every letter, I can only answer a handful out of the hundreds I get. If I don't answer yours, try looking for a similar problem in the letters I have answered before.

Take care,
Sam
