Stop What You’re Doing and Purchase The Porn Myth

Four Reasons You Should Stop What You’re Doing and Purchase The Porn Myth

What is wrong with me?” Grace* asked – her voice breaking. The tears that filled her brown eyes began to spill over; her lower lip quivered. It didn’t matter that we were surrounded by other college kids, laughing and socializing after the Culture Project’s presentation. It didn’t matter if they heard her question or saw her hands shaking. She’d reached a breaking point. “What is wrong with me? Why can’t I move on?”

I ushered her to the foot of the stairs just outside the main room and, in this little corner, Grace shared her story. She’d met a young man at a church off-campus. He was passionate about his faith and before she knew it, he was passionate about her too. He said and did all of the right things. They laughed together, prayed together, and talked about a future together. Little by little, Grace learned to trust him and chose to love him.

They dated for about five months before she started to notice little changes. He didn’t seem as interested in being around her. He was emotionally disconnected and less willing to communicate. He stopped taking her on dates and complimenting her appearance. She felt like the man she loved was slipping away, and she didn’t understand why. Finally, he shared with her that he’d been using pornography off-and-on the whole time they were together. Through tears, she asked him one infinitely vulnerable question: “Are you still attracted to me?” His answer shattered her heart. He said what he watched by himself wasn’t impacting their relationship, but she knew otherwise. When it became apparent his porn use wasn’t going to end, she broke off the relationship. Now, a full 18 months later, she found herself sitting in a room full of her peers, desperately begging me to help her stop the pain.

I wish I could say Grace’s story is unique, but it’s not. In fact, I’m only writing about it because it’s the story shared with me yesterday. Last week there was another one and, the week before that, another. Men and women approach me after presentations, email me, and call me, and they all have the same story: “Pornography is destroying my (life, relationship, marriage, family) and I am powerless.” Significant others aren’t the only ones who contact me. The same tortured cry is echoed by the addicts themselves. I understand because I am one. I’ve written before about my journey in and out of pornography addiction and, if there is one thing I am certain of, it’s this: no one wants to be enslaved by pornography. People all over the world are desperate to be free. We’re tired of our own bondage and we’re tired of living in a porn-filled world. So, how do we change it?

Answer: The Porn Myth.

Guys, I just finished reading The Porn Myth, and it is a game changer. The Porn Myth is the resource we’ve been waiting for. In less than 250 pages, best-selling author and popular speaker, Matt Fradd, succinctly, scientifically dismantles every pro-porn argument I’ve ever heard. Finally.

You need this book. Not want, need. Here are four reasons why:

  • Pornography affects you.
    Whether or not you’ve ever seen pornography, it has changed your life. 1/3 men and 1/5 women are struggling with a porn addiction. The average age of exposure to hardcore pornography is nine years old. Nine. Years. Old. What does this mean? Porn is shaping the way our entire world thinks about love, sex, and relationships, and we all need to be aware.
  • The Porn Myth is entirely non-religious.
    Have you ever had someone tell you your beliefs about pornography were based on religious fanaticism? I get it all the time. The other day, someone went through the trouble of leaving a note on the windshield of my car, just to tell me, “porn is great and healthy, and you’re crazy.” This book proves them wrong. The Porn Myth is packed with scientific and sociological proof of porn’s addictive nature and harmful effects, all with zero religious bias. None. We need these facts.
  • The Porn Myth tells the unfiltered truth.
    Some people say porn is harmless entertainment, but we know otherwise. We know “adult entertainment” is a cover. It pretends porn is about consensual pleasure and filters out the pain which is both cause and effect of what we see on the screen. If we want to understand pornography, we need to ask for the honest truth. The Porn Myth has done that. It tells the stories of the addicts who hate porn but can’t stop using, the significant others who watched porn change and steal their relationships; the children who stumbled across pornography accidentally; and the porn stars who cry themselves to sleep while they ache for real love. We need to hear their stories.
  • The Porn Myth offers hope.
    It would have been sufficient for Matt to provide us with an incredible resource about pornography, but he took it a step further: he gave us a resource about how to defeat and heal from pornography. The Porn Effect compiles top-notch resources for addicts who are struggling, for those heartbroken by a loved one’s addiction, for parents who want to protect their kids, and for anyone and everyone who wants to take this message to the streets and change the way our world views porn. We need these resources.

That’s it, friends. Truth at our fingertips. Stop reading this post right now and go buy your own, much-needed copy of The Porn Myth. Then buy one for everyone you know. Read it; let it change you, and use it to change the world.
