The Story of Porn


I found this little gem today while taking a small break at work today. I love how she uses porn as the other “wife” in this. Sadly many of you women know that a man, who has an addiction, has two wives….his real physical loving wife and the addiction…whether it it be porn, drugs or alcohol.

Our Little Slice of Haven

Pornography is an addictive drug. It is used to cope with the stressors of life in an unhealthy way. It releases those “feel good” chemicals into the brain, just like drugs and alcohol do; they induce pleasure automatically, which makes it addictive in nature. When we pair a naturally addictive substance with a way to escape our problems and insecurities, it becomes crippling. To make matters worse, often times pornography exposure first happens in adolescence, a time when we have weak self control and too often feel embarrassed to reach out for help. 

These boys grow into men, and by this point they have formed a deep-rooted “connection” with porn. It has become their best friend, it has been there with them through the awkward middle school phase, their parent’s divorce, and their first break up. Porn has been there to chase the pain away and make everything stop…

  1. Stu, I was listening to a guy on you tube today giving his testimony about deliverance from porn and masturbation. I thought about your blog. Keep moving forward in Christ!

  2. This is so true. 😭

    I was in love with a man who was watching porn. I had no idea. When I found out, I thought I wasn’t enough. 😔 He told me it was, “better than bringing another (women in his house)”😮 😭 I was supposed to be thankful that it was only porn. 🙄

    I hated him watching it. I thought it was a new behavior. Nope, he finally told me that he used to look at naughty magazines or whatever when he was younger. I had no idea it started WAY before he ever met me.

    1. Sadly most men do not start looking at porn late in life…most start, on average, around the age of twelve.
      Yes, you were/are enough. It’s just that with porn nothing satisfies because it warps our brains. Even the best love making with a women is not enough because of the adrenaline and chemical releases they are accustomed to getting.

      1. Twelve?!! Sheesh. 😔

        Ahhhh, okay. That’s horrible.

        For a woman who doesn’t watch porn, it could be having to fantasize every time just to… finish? Is that kinda like the same thing? 🤔

        1. Yeah. Just about all the men I talk to…we all started at 12. Sad for are brains to be warped BEFORE they are fully developed 😦
          Yeah, in a way it is. That’s a dousy there. A member of the CMBA addressed that issue I think last year saying it’s wrong to do so, even if you are fantasizing about your husband to finish. I’ll see if I can ask for a link to the post.

          1. I have tried to understand men and how they love the woman they are with, but can’t stop the porn. I think that comparison was the best I have ever been able to think of. 🤔

              1. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this subject brother Stuart. People may not want to talk about it, but it’s a very important subject. We need to learn why it happens, how it happens, what it does to people and how to deal with it.

                Thank you for being bold enough to tackle these all too often “swept under the rug” topics. God bless you. 🙏💕
