    Technically blues brothers was R rated in the US so I guess whenever I saw that. It was before I went to school proper though and my sister was even younger.

    Generally I think the policy my parents had was more or less watch whatever and talk to me if you do not understand something. However we have had various discussions on censorship and the like in the past.

    I watched my first Rated R movie at a friend's house when I was 11.
    It was Scary Movie 2, by the way.

    I was probably around 10 years old. The cable company would give us a free weekend of one of the pay channels (showtime, cinnemax, or hbo) once or twice a year. Every so often my friends and I would have sleep over parties, and at one I distinctly remember a movie called "Private Resort." My friend Kevin and I were looking at the TV guide for what to watch when everybody else went to bed and the name "Private Resort" sounded promising. We were only looking for one thing really. It was an average comedy with plenty of nudity thrown in, so it was awesome.

    I'm 19 and I still haven't seen an R-rated movie. Nothing new has really caught my interest, though someday I'll probably go back and watch some classics (Terminator, The Shining, etc...)

    I think I was 7 or 8 when I first saw Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, not sure which one I've seen first. My parents never really restricted me as far as movies and games were concerned, unless nudity was involved in which case the "cover your eyes for a moment" routine was usually sufficient. I've seen a lot of good movies when I was a kid. :)

    Maybe 8 or 9 when I first watched Jaws, with my parents. I remember being told to "look away" for one scene in particular.

    I saw the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas right about the time it came out on video, so I would've been 6 or so. I can't say for sure that it was the first, but I'm 'pretty' sure.

    My first glimpse was at 4 when me and some friends were watching the factory scene of Halloween III as our parents were smashed. My first FULL R-Rated movie that I remember was going to see Terminator 2 when I was 5.


    Jaws was PG technically. More of a PG-13 really.

    R-rated... you mean like Terminator? In childhood (before 6). Nobody where I live at that time was cared or even known of ratings. And so watching them was not prohibited at all for any age. Same for games, many little kids was played MK, with parents knowing that, and don't care. If you mean porn, than at 15. It was on my PC when I bought it, since that PC was build for friend of shop worker. But that friend gone off somewhere and so PC was bought by me. Having many soft, music, some movies, and porn copied on HDD already.

    I suppose now would be the time for the sex vs violence comments.

    Do simulated sex scenes in films count? 11 is when you will definitely have been taught about it all in school, unless you were one of the unfortunates to have parents with philosophical objections (a grand total of a handful of Plymouth brethren, though that was possibly more because we had to watch it on a TV) and you will see it all then. Oddly I was not allowed to be shown a condom or the application of one though, even if their function was taught and their use was encouraged.

    Actual porn.. I am old enough to remember hedge porn. I am not sure when that would have first been.

    Nudity... being one of those degenerate European types nobody really cares if a woman goes topless at a beach, though in the UK at least there are usually only about 3 hours a year where a bathing suit of some form is suitable clothing and 5 beaches that are sand rather than rocks. To that end first time I saw tits that weren't my mother's or feeding some baby was probably pre when I can remember and it is not even notable ever since. Fully nudity also not of my parents is probably a similar timeframe -- I have never been to a nudist beach or colony (though I have been on a nudism explicitly acceptable one) but in most cases if you have to get changed you have to get changed, probably best to avoid pelvic thrusting in the faces of passers by otherwise most people have genitals and they are really not that interesting.

    I was 6 when I saw Robocop in the cinema. I'm not sure if I had watched Rambo 2 on video before that, Robocop is the one I'm sure about.
