Pornography and the family don't mix....
Let thy fountain be blessed:
and rejoice with the wife of
thy youth.  Let her be as the
loving hind and pleasant roe;
let her breasts satisfy thee at
all times, and be thou
ravished always with her
love.
             Proverbs 5:19
This website features stories of

Taken from Pornography's Impact on Marriage & The Family
by Jill C. Manning
Testimony

  1. Increased marital distress, and risk of separation and divorce,
  2. Decreased marital intimacy and sexual satisfaction,
  3. Infidelity
  4. Increased appetite for more graphic types of pornography and sexual activity associated with abusive,
    illegal or unsafe practices,
  5. Devaluation of monogamy, marriage and child rearing,
  6. An increasing number of people struggling with compulsive and addictive sexual behaviour.
These trends reflect a cluster of symptoms that undermine the foundation upon which successful marriages and
families are established.


When a child lives in a home where an adult is consuming pornography, he or she encounters the following four
risks:
  1. Decreased parental time and attention
  2. Increased risk of encountering pornographic material
  3. Increased risk of parental separation and divorce and
  4. Increased risk of parental job loss and financial strain

  1. Lasting negative or traumatic emotional responses,
  2. Earlier onset of first sexual intercourse, thereby increasing the risk of STD’s over the lifespan,
  3. The belief that superior sexual satisfaction is attainable without having affection for one’s partner, thereby
    reinforcing the commoditization of sex and the objectification of humans.
  4. The belief that being married or having a family are unattractive prospects;
  5. Increased risk for developing sexual compulsions and addictive behavior,
  6. Increased risk of exposure to incorrect information about human sexuality long before a minor is able to
    contextualize this information in ways an adult brain could.
  7. And, overestimating the prevalence of less common practices (e.g., group sex, bestiality, or
    sadomasochistic activity).

Women, far more than men, are likely to act out their behaviors in real life, such as having multiple
partners, casual sex, or affairs.

These numbers are staggering.  It is up to the us, the Believers, to step up, take a stand, and make a
difference.  If porn is a problem in your life or in the life of your family, it is time to take a stand and get your
family back on the right track.  If you don't know where to start, may I suggest the Lord.  It is not his will that
you be a slave to the flesh and a slave to sex.  Only he can break the ties that bind.
