Taboo Topics: Sex and Porn Addiction [an anonymous guest post]


This wonderful story was shared with me via Brett on Resurrecting the Redeemed From Porn Addiction . I am thankful that he shared it with me. What a powerful statements this young lady makes:
“An addiction which speaks to the intimate, fun, make-up after fights, tender, playful part of a marriage. An addiction which had nothing to do with me and yet offended me when it reared its’ head as it felt personal. It felt as if somehow I was to be responsible for relapses or acting out, or pushing boundaries. What if I upset him or he felt rejected by me and acted out (watched porn or withdrew into a world of fantasy and masturbation which had nothing to do with us)?”

“It made me realise that this isn’t just about him if we want our relationship to flourish. It has to do with me too. It has to do with me being willing to be vulnerable. It has to do with me being willing to look at the parts of me that aren’t so healthy. Not so that he doesn’t relapse – but so that I am not asking him to change in ways that I am not willing to.”
Statistically half of men have viewed porn. half of those are addicted and most of those believe they struggle alone.
Please if you struggle with porn tell a trusted friend and seek help..you are not alone and victory in this area is possible…you just have to want it.
God Bless,
Stuart

So typically i prefer TABOO TOPIC posts to have a face and a name to help make the issues being discussed more ‘real person’ to other people going through them. But i am going to make an exception in this case as it is a friend who i know sharing the story and the nature of the story is needing some protection from family and friends… but i hope this will be an encouragement and help to all of you who might be struggling with this or knows someone who is. i’m sure the sharing of it was not made all that much easier by doing so, and so i am very grateful:

‘I said “I DO, forever”, to a sex and porn addict.

My husband is one of the kindest, patient, most loyal, always ready for fun and a laugh people I know.

My husband is also a sex…

    1. Wow, Peter! I am humbled in the fact that you said I have taught you a few things. Wow. I greatly appreciate that compliment brother. And I am also honored in the nomination. Thank you 🙂

      1. Lots more people than you think have the same struggles as you do, just to a lesser degree. Christians are called to chastity, but there is so much healing and grace that has to come first.
        Hope! God knows our struggles, and I think he works them into his plan.
