New relationship anxiety - age gap

I'm feeling a little queasy about the sexual preferences of my new boyfriend. I'm in my early 20's, he is almost 40, and I look a little younger than I am. I'm just worried he likes really young girls, just doesn't want to admit it to me. I love him, but I wouldn't be comfortable getting older with someone whose sexuality seems focused on youth. Although, he says he is most attracted to women in their late 20's and early 30's, cares more about monogamy and love than physical beauty, etc. - so that's good. I still have concerns... Besides seeming to have a particular interest in 'teen' porn where the girls look underage, I saw a VLC media file with the title indicating underage teen porn. It was under the 'recent' files in windows, but when clicked on the file no longer exists. He says he wouldn't seek that out, isn't sure where it came from, that he just downloads zip files of porn in bulk. I understand men are going to be attracted to younger women and even teen girls, but I'd rather be with someone who didn't seek it out to that extent. Makes me wonder how much attraction they'd lose for me when I become 'old.' Thoughts?

Should I or shouldn't I?

I'm a 24 year old woman. A man in my social circle, who is probably at least 17 years older than me, and maybe even more (could be anywhere from 42 to 47) seems to be interested in me. I'm confused, and not sure what to do. Advice, please? [more inside]

How young is too young

A friend of mine who is 19 is dating a 16 year old girl. He is getting a lot of negative comments about him and keeps trying to confide in me. I think if the chemistry is there and they are cool with it why not. Any opinions?
