How I Stopped Watching Porn for 1 Year and Why I’m Not Going Back!

Filed under: Intimacy,Porn,Relationships — Larry James @ 7:30 am

First of all, let me say that this is a “Relationship” Blog! No matter how you personally feel about the dangers of porn, we are committed to presenting all points of view without judgement. As a relationship coach, I feel there are things that need to be said that we often resist talking about.

YouDecideI believe that everything in moderation is the best format to follow. Drink too much water and you can drown. Smoke too many cigarettes and you may get cancer. A vocal segment of the American population has serious concerns about the effect of pornography in society and challenges its public use and acceptance.

The problem of porn rears it’s ugly head when it comes to the point of addiction and begins to interfere with your sex life, social life, finances, job, relationship, family, spiritual life, responsibilities and so on. That’s where most people draw the line. Porn (and even too much sex) can cause depression, lethargy, no motivation, anxiety, low/non-existent libido, and plenty of other problems.

Research shows that 47% of people watch between 30 minutes to three hours of porn per day. The University of Sydney found that those who have an excessive passion for porn were more likely to have severe social and relationship problems, and were more likely to lose their jobs and get in trouble with the law.

The main voices heard about porn are those of church leaders, politicians, and opinion columnists. In these debates it is rare to hear the insights of those people who regularly consume pornography. Some think that any enjoyment of pornography is a sign of a twisted mind.

Please read “How I Stopped Watching Porn for 1 Year and Why I’m Not Going Back!” with an open mind and decide for yourself. Click here!

Larry’s NOTE: This post should not be construed as my being in favor of pornography, as my personal opinion is irrelevant to the matter at hand. Is porn beneficial or detrimental? Please be clear, I am NOT advocating pornography, I am NOT discussing the moral implications of pornography, I am NOT trying to tell everyone to start supporting pornography. My conclusion is that there is a good, bad, ugly and dark side of porn and you get to decide.
