I was suppose to post this TWO days ago but I've apparently had the IT week from hell and on top of working, having my boss in town, I'm leaving for SPC's middle school camp tomorrow. So it's been all I can do to just survive this week. But I wanted to get this post out so here it is:
My super-awesome-blogger-friend-whom-I-can't-wait-to-actually-meet-in-May-friend Crystal is writing a book called Dirty Girls: The New Porn Addicts, that pretty much summarizes the book right there. Women and porn. Something that is not talked about ever. I'm probably the worse person to be talking about this topic. Being freakishly prude about all things related to sex and never actually seeing porn (minus the countless college parties that have it playing on mute in the background...) But what I can speak of is the affects and personal relationships porn has tarnished. One of my best friends in high school (who was male - not the Dirty Girls target market) struggled with a sex addiction, which included an addiction to porn. I watch him ruin countless relationships with his family, friends, and girl friend. Luckily, he found God, found an awesome accountability partner, and while he still struggles with this issue he is doing way better.
I know porn is an uncomfortable issue to talk about. Which I think is why Satan uses it to capture so many people. But won't you stand with me and start talking more open about it? If you want to be even braver, Crystal is collecting data for her book. Please take one of her surveys.
What are your thoughts on porn?
