An open letter to the girl addicted to sex

Catie gives us a powerful and honest look into the world of women who struggle with pornography and masturbation.

So much in this post spoke to me, but this ““Girls don’t struggle with that stuff.” And that’s a big fat freaking lie. It’s lies like these that prevent confession, cheating women of the freedom they could experience in overcoming this sin. Because when we experience the freedom to confess even the darkest of our darkness, we can fight together. We don’t want to struggle well, we want to QUIT THE STRUGGLE, putting the sin to death and chasing after the redemption story Jesus writes for us daily.

I wonder if I’m a girl you’d think struggles with sex.

Isn’t that what we all wonder? Maybe it’s not sex, pornography, or even masturbation, but you struggle secretly with a dark sin and wonder if others would ever guess. For me though?

      I’ve heard stories from women that are not really mine to reshare but yeah…they can get high. I’ve witnessed it first hand

      1. It’s amazing how the mind, body and soul are connected. I believe it’s a high to be vulnerable. You’re completely vulnerable with another person. It’s like Russian roulette, pushing the limits of your vulnerability.

  2. Hey, Thanks for sharing, Stewart. These messages and like conversations are so necessary in The Body. We all need to know that there are others that understand and share the pain.
