Your Porn Addiction Hurt Others

One of the most frequent comments I hear from a man who is suffering a sexual addiction is “I didn’t think I was hurting anyone”. Unfortunately, they could not be farther from the truth with their thinking.  woman-1006100_1280

Your sexual addiction not only hinders your ability to engage in healthy, emotional connection with your spouse or partner, but it also impacts others who you may never have considered.

Do you think your porn addiction has a negatively impacts the women who you are visually lusting after? It does. How? Because the women engaging in those activities are broken. Many are forced into this life. Others do it out of desperation. And still others believe they are worthless and their what they do with their bodies simply doesn’t manner anymore.

The women who are allowing themselves to be sexually exploited are battling their own demons. Many were sexually and physically abused as children and teenagers. All of them suffer from low self-worth, although many of them may not recognize it. Whether they are in the pornography industry or simply amateurs, these women are being used. They are being used by the men who draw them into the world of pornography; by the men who have sex with them on film; and by the men who sit by their computers and watch.

I had an opportunity to speak with some women who have allowed themselves to be filmed or photographed while engaging in sexual activities. All of them wish they could turn back the hands of time and prevent those episodes from occurring in their lives. They are filled with regret and shame that they allow someone to talk them into doing something they now find degrading. 

If we watch pornography we are objectifying women. We are saying they are not important and their sole purpose is for our self-gratification and lust. Pornography is not a harmless activity. Moving forward remember, for each video you watch, there are many victims.
