  1. “The theme of the movie was more about my attractiveness, how she saw me, how “irresistible” I was.”

    Take the “she” out and replace it with “he” (or men generally) and you have a description of my lusts as a female caught up in pornography and cybersex. The attractiveness of the woman on the screen became my attractiveness, so that I became the object of men’s lusts. And in cybersex, I could describe myself so that I was always young, thin and hot – the stereotypical woman that men want (and almost the polar opposite of me in real life).

    The sad thing is that in offering up this perfect stereotype (in type) to men in chat rooms, and having it eagerly received and reinforced, I made it very difficult to believe that I could ever be sexually desirable to a husband. This lack of confidence clearly affects the way I relate to men and affects the likelihood that I will ever date much less marry (and thus have sex).

    • I am a young 23 year old man who has spent the last eight years using women like you as objects I apologize for treating you like trash or some toy to be put back in the Box whenever I don’t need it and to be pulled out whenever I want to have some fun I hope you will forgive me for seeing you in that way

  2. How i came to start watching porn is still a mystery.Someone left a site on the screen and i opened it to find out more and from that time my life has never been the same.I have tried leaving porn but i keep on falling back into it.I am desperate for help coz i want to stop this in.

  3. I just stumbled upon this site and I have found it very interesting. I do not have a porn issue really, but I can relate to a lot of what you said. My problem is that I do attract a lot of male attention and I can’t seem to stop enjoying this, even to the point of sharing pictures of myself with others. Never nude pics, I really would never do that. But just somewhat revealing. And the thing is that I’m married and my husband doesn’t mind, he’s proud of me and wants to show me off. It’s so strange and sometimes I feel very guilty and condemned over this all. I don’t do this often at all, once or twice a year maybe, but for the time that I do share the pics and flirt, I feel HORRIBLE afterwards. I feel awful and it just makes me sick. I have always had trouble with lust and men. I’ve never had sex outside of my marriage though, I could never do that. I’ve been married, very happily married for 22 years now. I just wished that I had better control over this problem.

  4. Im a husband, father of three, leader at my church and I fall in and out of this lust for women and at times porn. I know how God feels but still struggle. Please pray for me!
