  1. This is exactly correct, porn does harm your brain. It is extremely evil. The longer you watch porn the more you want. Porn will leave you disappointed and ashamed. It disgust me now. I wish I never watched it. It almost ruined my marriage, but thank God he pulled me away from it. It is a drug, not everyone will believe you when you tell them that. Some people will have to learn the hard way. I have anxiety now due to porn and it puts nasty sexual images in your head. It is very sad that people watch that TRASH and they don’t realize what they are doing to themselves. I LOVE COVENANT EYES and THANK GOD for what you do. People need to know the damage porn does too a person and the LIES it tells you.

    • @chris – Thanks for your comments! It is good to know how God has transformed your heart even after being entrenched in pornography. He is good!

  2. I loved your article as no one is more anti-porn then I am but I wish you would have listed the evidence you have that each of the five “Harms” is true.

    For instance, where you wrote “Over 90% of therapists believe a person can literally become addicted to using pornography”, I wish you wouldn’t mention where you got this statistic or at least mention where you read it.

    • @Dee – You get all the sources in the e-book. And for your information, the above stat comes from the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, vol.34, issue 4, 2008, from the article, “Cybersex: The Impact of a Contemporary Problem on the Practices of Marriage and Family Therapists.”

  3. Amen on Harm #5: Watching Porn Makes Us Want to Watch More Porn – this creates an cycle that can be just as addictive as hard drugs (cocaine, heroine), making it extremely difficult to quit porn.

    However, I think in the context of Modern Family, the issue is a conflict of values in parenting and how that conflict can shape a child’s (porn-seeking) behavior.

    Great post.

    • Marc – Right. I was just adding the Modern Family quote to show some of the cultural attitudes toward pornography as being harmless. Thanks for the comment!

  4. It’s very easy to say “quit porn” when you have a moral option of sex – not all have that gift from God; some are lesser children.
