4 thoughts on “Stop Looking At Porn You Sicko! (Part 2)

  1. Wonderful post! Those reasons in that email are spot on…and so true. I need to stop trying harder, and never stop believing. This direct issue along with masturbation has affected my life for over 10 years now, and I’m only 22 years old. I have a whole life of service to Christ ahead of me, and all of this just feels like a weight that I’ve been having to consantly drag around..blessings to all.

  2. As a warning for those of you tryi g to stop…my wife of 22 years just left me yesterday and its mainly because of all the hurt ive caused her over many years by looking at porn. Ive finalky broken free from its bondage as of this past March 10th…but it may have been too late! Its not wirth what we have went thru to continue looking at this stuff.

  3. Despite victory in regards to pornography, two things I still wrestle with (rhetorical questions I have for God that He’ll never bother answering):

    * The “beauty denied” aspect of the female form. They are created with amazing beauty and appeal, while mens’ design is sub-par at best (and which most women could care less about–if women actually shared what they thought without fear of rebuke). Then, men are given a sex drive by God 15 times (medical fact) that of women, and are given the responsibility to keep putting it down. It’s like being on an endless journey with a zombie constantly behind you, and you’re armed only with a big stick. You can run and keep beating it down, but have no weapon with which you can finally kill it (or, for lack of a better term, “headshot it”–fitting in with zombie movies–just trying to describe what it feels like). Numerous men I know have reiterated how utterly frustrating it is just being born male. Most women (though some will) will never understand this aspect of living as a male.

    * [Note: while this isn’t directly related to pornography, if you spend any amount of time reading marriage blogs, you’ll realize it’s very much part of the problem]. Why He made women with a psychologically-dependent and motivated view of sexual intimacy, which is extremely fragile at best.

  4. Just came across the Covenant Eyes site and this post briefly while looking for something else I thought you may be interested in a book published by Cruciform Press called Sexual Detox: A Guide for Guys Who Are Sick of Porn by Tim Challies which seems to be right in line with your discussion which I only perused. Perhaps you’ve already heard of it. I work for Cruciform Press so if you are interested perhaps we could do some cross marketing.
