Smile Mom's of teen boys...advice needed!

I have a question for a somewhat delicate topic. My son has this fascination with naked girls in particular looking at my magazines and looking them up on the computer. Okay so I know that there is a certain amount of curiosity that is expected. Looking at suggestive pictures/topics is against our religion and he knows this but continues to satisfy his curiosity. I can't even have a jc penney catalog or parents magazine around b/c tries to look at anything which is flesh bareing. I have tried to handle this as delicately as possible but that didn't work. Any advice or ideas on how you have handled it? My dh isn't any help at all. He is a very hands off parent. I would appreciate any suggestions that you may have. I am sooo much better at dealing with periods, mood swings, puberty in girls than everything dealing with boys.

Have you seen the book Every Young Man's Battle? I HIGHLY recommend it! He needs to KNOW that is struggles are normal, but not acceptable. My son is going through the book and workbook and it's great. He's a bit embarrassed to discuss things, but I keep it very to the book.

An impure mind leads to much worse destruction. There was a speaker here locally on Saturday that gave his testimony to how destructive **** was to him. It started as a young teen, grew into an addiction, adulterous affair and finally child molestation (sex with a 15 y/o for 2 yrs).
