Porn Addiction, Part Three: What Porn Does To Your Soul – 2 of 2



An ongoing discussion about victory over sexual addiction.

Part Three, What Porn Does To Your Soul - 1 of 2 here.







The Process of Porn

Porn is degrading to both the user and the industry because it caters to the base animal nature of all of us. If you think that’s prude or close-minded, wouldn’t it be more open-minded to call it what it really is? If it’s not prostitution, it’s pretty close.

But I understand the “moral argument” does not always persuade, much less motivate, to quit porn. For the hundreds of sermons I’ve heard vilifying alcohol, drugs, clubs, Internet, indulgent eating, laziness, or video games, none of them ever sustained a change in behavior. Because all of them spoke only to behaviors, not the basics.

If you’re addicted to porn, you’re most likely after something else. As much as the hipster contemporary all-aware self-aware blogger will tell you that masturbation sometimes “just happens,” we know that a variety of factors gets us there. Sex between two people doesn’t just happen — even casual sex requires multiple variables to align before happening.

Pornography Addiction

Hello there fellow Tumblr friends.

As a recovered porn addict having been sober for a while now by the grace of God, I’d love to set up a “workshop” where I can answer your questions and share how to recover.

I pray over the weeks that you’ll gain confidence in freedom from the slavery of sexual addiction. This is no longer a problem in church, but the problem. No one talks about it. But we need to talk about it.

I went on a research binge when I first became serious about recovery so I will be sharing some of the stats and facts here. Please know that I can’t answer every question but will try my best to address them all.

Love you all, Planet Tumblr!
