They're grown men, and should be able to take care of themselves. And 18 is the age of majority, not 21, so your bringing up his not mentioning "males under the age of 21" makes no sense -- and your intimation that he had sexual dealings with males who haven't reached the age of majority is calumny or detraction.

So once your son reaches 18, you don't care where they go. Great.
Seems your moral involvement with your children stops at the legal age. Good to know.

No, a parent's moral involvement with their kids never ends. But what parents have a "right" to know is another matter, and at some point, parents have to realize their children are adults and and stop acting as if it's still their duty (or that they have the authority) to have charge over their lives. When you have a kid you are still raising, you have a duty to protect -- which shouldn't lapse into overprotection, and which protection shouldn't conflate innocence with ignorance (a huge problem I see in some parents in the trad world) -- but when they become adults, your raising of them is over. You're still morally involved with them (we're morally involved, theoretically, with any Catholic insofar as we have duties to teach, admonish the sinner, etc. We are our brothers' keepers.) and you can -- and should -- advise them. But you're not owed information about what they do, and you don't have the authority to plan their lives, choose their vocations, tell them whom to marry, tell them what to do and expect obedience, etc. The duty to obey ends at childhood; the duty to honor and revere never ends.
