It’s good to give up porn

 

Not sure how, but I stumbled across this video on YouTube about a bloke that gave up porn and had a better sex life and marriage with his wife.

We are just starting to see the effects of porn in how it effects mental health, conditions the brain, and contributes to erectile dysfunction. While these are fairly rational reasons to give up porn, spiritually it may keep us out of the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 10. Also, Paul’s discussion regarding sex in 1 Corinthians 6: 12-20 supports research into how deeply emotion and biological sex is. See Love Thy Body by Nancy Pearcey for an analysis of this subject.).

No doubt many men and women in our modern landscape have deep wounds over their porn use. Whether married or not, I found this video encouraging to show that even a lift of porn can be overcome, and that there are many benefits to giving it up, especially to those who are married. And I realise that this video is not from a Christian point of view, but I think its helpful to hear others testify to what Christians have always warned about with porn use in marriages, particular regarding sexual desire and creating a sense of shame or inadequacy within the marriage (although I realise it does not warn of the spiritual consequences of porn use.)

Let me know what you think!
