6 thoughts on “Where to Find the Boldness to Share Your Porn Secret

  1. Amy,
    Thanks for sharing. I know many women are struggling to get free. As a friend of mine said “We need to be shouting from the rooftops about this issue”.
    I admire your strength in talking about your struggle.

  2. I was also addicted to pornography at the age of 17 until about I was 26 . I had struggled with anxiety and depression. I was diagnosed with an illness at age 19 with physcosis and later developed schizophrenia. I have overcome much and made huge strides with god and am learning to overcome evil with good. I still need to work with god through prayer and reading the bible and being encouraged by others so I can live in freedom.

  3. Amy,

    thank you so much for sharing your story. We often forget that porn addiction is also a matter of our hearts not being right with the Lord during the addiction and how much it effects our relationship with God. We also, underestimate God’s desire to help us to live in freedom!

  4. Even though I am a straight married woman…It’s STILL hard not to objectify women. I think it’s bc women are practically objectified all the time thru the media, music, society etc. And it’s just drilled into our heads that women r just objects so we accept it. I used to work in the adult industry (stripper) and would often compare myself to the other girls there….In a way I was attempting to c which one of us was the “better” sex object bc I thought as a woman, my identity was in how sexy I could be. That industry totally warped my perception of other women :( when I started watching porn though it made it way way way worse than I ever could’ve imagined…It got to the point that I began to question my sexual orientation. I later learned that I was really lusting after other women Bc I felt so inadequate as a woman in my own body. I pictured myself having THEIR bodies and THEIR confidence and being desired like they were…and despite being told I’m a very attractive woman by several people throughout my life, I always felt so insecure, and viewing porn where the women are airbrushed to perfection really only amplified my sense of worthlessness. Even though I’ve been free for quiet some time now, porn has definitely left it’s scars. I struggle with seeing pretty women as more worthy than their less attractive counterpart…And I hate it! I know God can heal me though and he is already doing a great work in me. A few months back I went to a support group thru my church to help women who are addicted to porn and or masturbation. Unfortunately, I was the only woman to show up. I KNOW I’m not the only woman but for some reason women really don’t like to admit they have a problem w sexual sin…ESPECIALLY Christian women :( I admire your willingness to share so openly! We need more women like you in our churches!
