Every week we receive multiple emails from either men struggling with pornography, or wives struggling with their husbands’ use of it. (I know many women struggle with using pornography as well, but we’ll save that for another blog). I agree with Dr. Phil, who insists that users of Internet porn are cheating on their partners, and that women shouldn’t have to put up with their partners’ pornography addiction.
This is obviously an issue we’ll explore deeply if given the opportunity to write The Sexually Savvy Husband, but I thought it would be great to pick your brains now! Answer any of these questions that apply to you:
* If you’re a man who currently uses pornography, can you help us understand what’s behind this addiction for you? What do you get out of looking at pornography? Is there any way your wife can help you break this addiction? Are there ways that she unknowingly fuels it?
* If you’re a wife whose husband is currently using pornography, tell us how it makes you feel — about yourself, about your husband, about the relationship you share.
* If you’re a man (or the wife of a man) who has overcome a pornography addiction, what advice do you have for other men and their wives? How has your life & marriage changed since pornography was banned from your sex life?
As always, let’s keep the conversation positive. We all know that there’s real hurt and deep pain going on in the lives of both husbands and wives as a result of pornography use, so let’s explore what’s really going on beneath this issue and learn how we can help others become sexually savvy husbands and sexually confident wives!
