There’s a bit of backstory here so bear with me. The other Saturday I was at a wedding and during the post service lull while Emma was feeding Noah some lunch I went in search of a paper. I only read the Sports section before the days events moved on, and yesterday evening I enjoyed the simple pleasure of reading a newspaper. What struck me was how much reference to porn there was. Porn is in the news not because we think it’s wrong but because the husband of the Home Secretary charged his viewing pleasure to the public.
“Research is showing that porn is indeed addictive, especially to men, and that it damages their libido in the longterm. Experts on sexual dysfunction are seeing an epidemic today of healthy young men who cannot perform easily with their partners because they have been overexposed to pornography.”
“I am noting that the power and charge of sex are maintained when there is some sacredness to it.”
Added to that there has been a ‘lust’ convergence in the last few days with a few bloggers thinking about different aspects of the same issue.
* Note: Mark Driscoll’s Porn Again Christian is worth getting a hold of especially for younger guys and the best web filters to block out pornography I’ve come across are Naomi and K9. Both work well, both free.
