Dan confessed a life-long pornography addiction to his wife ten years ago. She took it great upfront, but the anger and havoc it created on her mind followed. He felt free, she felt worse. Setting up strict standards and an accountability partner was huge. Dan won’t see any movies with female nudity.
The draw of pornography is that it’s a microwavable solution to the slow cooker nature of the woman you married. Second, the variety men seek isn’t that accessible in the consistency of marriage. It’s an issue of settling for quick gratifying fixes over diligent blooming beauty.
Four out of ten pastors struggle with pornography. We need pastors and other Christians to be the hero’s of sexuality in our context today.
