Hello! It's been awhile since I did a guest post but this week you'll find me over on, To Love, Honor and Vacuum by Sheila Wray Gregoire talking about pornography addiction... or, pornography "habits", pornography "affairs", the spirit of perversion... what is it really? What's happening in the world today with porn and relationships? Does it really matter what we call it? 

Here's a sneak peek:

"Before anyone gets upset with me for being insensitive, let me preempt this post by saying I know how much it hurts to have your spouse “cheat on you” with porn. It’s beyond awful. It makes us feel like dirt. We can’t stop thinking about it. We unwillingly compare ourselves to their internet history, “Large chest and big butt?! But I have a TINY chest and NO derriere… He must not like me” or, if you’re a man it may go more like, “I don’t have abs! Obviously, she thinks I’m fat too. No wonder she’s looking at porn. She’s probably having an affair too”.

I know. I know how it feels. I’ve been there before and in ways, I wouldn’t dare tell you. For the record, the porn-perusing web history is not an indication of whether they like our bodies. In my opinion, it doesn’t look like us because if it did, our loved ones would be riddled with guilt.

“Porn addiction” is a term that gets thrown around often. Especially in the Christian community.

I’m in the “business of addiction”, I talk about it daily and there’s a question I think it’s time we ask: Is porn addiction on the rise or are we using the term “addiction” too loosely?"
