I’m not sure if you’re telling me that your younger brother is looking at very sexy pictures of women or if he is looking at hard-core porn.  If they are mostly sexy pictures of women wearing very little or perhaps no clothing, I think I would keep his privacy.   I would also tell him what you’ve seen on his phone and how you came to be snooping, but unless he is looking at really far-out pornography, which would probably give him a very distorted view of sex, or–more troubling to me–would be pictures of sexual violence toward women, I’d chalk this up to his nearing puberty and getting interested, mentally and physically, in sexual feelings.  My guess is that his knowing that big sister is keeping an eye on him might keep his sexual “peeping” within normal limits.
