If he knows you have seen something he's probably mortified and wants to die, having said that thou I'd still probably have to say something so I knew he knew I was ok with it and if that's who he is, that it's fine and I would love him know matter what. Maybe he was just curious but either way i would like him to know its ok.

Well, I would wait until he comes to you to talk about his sexual orientation, he might not though. He might just be curious. If you wanted to, you could have a conversation about safe sex and start knocking to give him some privacy. Young adults are going to be curious about sex. Just give him the space to grow.

Its really none of your business. How do you know hes watching it? You don't need to say or do anything. Just let him be alone with his sexuality. If he wanted to talk about being gay, he would have talked to you already. Give him time and patience. When he's ready, he will tell you he's gay. He might not be though. He may just be curious.
