Explicit portrayal of sexual acts and intercourse
Joyce Meyer's Talk It Out Podcast
Today's episode is different. This isn't just a topic of conversation. This is our lives. We want to share with you a very real and emotional discussion we had about the pain of pornography. A pain that hits really close to home for so many of us and has left us broken and overwhelmed with questions and anger. Whether you are right in the thick of discovering your loved ones addiction, or you are years out, please listen in. We want to remind you that you are good enough, you are beautiful just the way you are, and you are not alone.
Pornography is now fully mainstream, accepted as a harmless, normal, expected part of men's lives. Social media, the internet, dating apps and sites like OnlyFans have incorporated porn into our lives such that it is unavoidable. Kids are exposed to porn as early as nine years old. Those who are critical of the porn industry are labelled as "sex-negative," old-fashioned, censorial, shaming, or prudish. That said, things seem to be changing as more and more men are waking up to the impact of porn on their mental health, relationships, sexualities, and lives. Men are talking to other men (and boys) about the harms of porn, opening up a new and necessary conversation. In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Daniel Principe, Collective Shout's youth advocate and educator, about his experience growing up with porn, why he stopped consuming it, and what the impact of porn has been on young people today.

Madi shares advice for other young women who are struggling and what leaders and parents need to know to help the increasing percentage of women who struggle with pornography. Madi shares resources for young adults who are struggling and how her partnership with Christ and His atonement has made all the difference with her recovery.

When you find yourself lacking desire for your spouse, I would invite you to look somewhere else.I want to invite you to look at how you feel about yourself. How good I feel about yourself is usually more of the underlying reason why you lack desire for your spouse, then your spouse's. It really has to do with you.So let me unpack that a little bit.When you look in the mirror, are you free from shame? Or maybe when you stand in front of a group of people? Do you feel free from shame with your clothes on for example?Do you feel free from shame, when you buy that great new outfit, and you get that great new haircut, and you've been working out and you feel like you look great?The fact that we spend so much time in front of the mirror, or so much time at the gym are often indicators that we actually feel a great amount of shame.We're trying to do things to cover up our shame, but if we live long enough, you find you're not really covering shame by working on how you look on the outside.If you find yourself pursuing sexual integrity, and you're lacking sexual desire for your spouse, stop focusing on them, criticizing them thinking If only they would look better. If only they would treat me better, if only they would…Take your focus off of that.Start focusing on having Jesus restore your own sense of dignity and your own sense of goodness.That your shame was put on the body of Jesus, so that he could restore to you your sense of worth, as one who is made in the image of God, and who is in fact, designed by God to be and become more and more of a good gift for your spouse.As you embody that and carry that in the interior of who you are more and more, you will find that your desire for your spouse grows.Highlights: When you find yourself lacking desire for your spouse. 0:04Lack of sexual desire for a spouse.Two reasons why a spouse might lack desire.Shame and the interior of you. 1:49Adam and Eve and feeling free from shame.The importance of self-improvement.How they felt good. 3:49They felt interiorly that they were a good gift to each other.Adam sees her as a help.The interior sense of goodness in ourselves. 5:20Freedom from shame comes from an interior sense of goodness.Husband's attraction to porn.The illusion of attraction is the illusion of goodness. 6:37Attraction is the illusion of goodness.Being a good gift in the world.Stop focusing on your spouse's appearance. 8:27Lack of sexual desire for your spouse.Focus on yourself, not them.Start focusing on restoring your own sense of dignity. 8:52Restore dignity and sense of goodness.Bring yourself as a good gift to your spouse.Help the show:Support the show.Give us your feedback.Leave a review.Watch us on YouTube.
Matt Jacobson joins Dr. Mark Turman to discuss being a biblical spouse, the pornography epidemic, how to have freedom from sexual temptation, and the power we have amid spiritual warfare through our identity in Christ. Show notes: Matt Jacobson begins by talking about his testimony, biblical marriage, and the severity of the sin of fornication in the Bible (1:32). Jacobson says that the way Christians believe the lie that they are weak in confronting sexual temptation leads to bondage (14:36). He emphasizes the spiritual warfare around us and at the same time, the choice we have to sin (17:21). They discuss how pornography leads to lonely emptiness, and why Christians must know their power in the Spirit (30:59). Jacobson talks about practical ways to fight the spiritual battle against sexual temptation, drawing on our identity as children of God (39:42). They close with advice for parents and a word of grace and hope for those addicted to pornography (47:53).

Pornography addiction is a serious issue, and it can be challenging to overcome. However, there are practical steps that individuals can take to break free from this addiction and establish good daily habits. One of the first things to do when considering treatment for porn addiction is to speak to a therapist. They will be able to recognize if you do indeed have an addiction and plan the next steps to take with you, which typically include a combination of psychotherapy and, in some cases, medication. Another helpful step is to tell someone about your struggle. Pornography is a tricky, isolating struggle, and finding someone to confide in and offer support can be a significant step towards recovery. Other popular action steps include finding an accountability partner, filling suddenly available free time with exercise or an enjoyable hobby, talking about compulsive porn use in group therapy, and taking note when you relapse.
In a technological world, our kids don't have to go looking for porn…it's looking for them. So can we even protect our children and students from pornography? If so, how? And how do we demonstrate God's love, grace, and forgiveness when they stumble? In this episode, Brett and Erin discuss the challenging topic of porn with Greta Eskridge.http://www.gretaeskridge.com/blog/category/Pornography

It is sad to think that many women may have never experienced love making from the perspective of the redemption of the body? In the Sermon on the Mount Christ speaks in the perspective of the redemption of men and women and the world. This is, in fact, the perspective of the whole gospel, of the whole teaching, even more, of the whole mission of Christ.

Uldouz started her acting career and quickly began to grow a following from her modeling and acting work. As she was growing in popularity, she learned that intimate, nonconsensual images and videos of her were leaked in the 2014 iCloud hack that affected hundreds of women, including many celebrities.

In this podcast, we are talking about your imagination.We who are seeking sexual integrity know the problem of how our mind can get us into trouble with sexual thoughts, sexual fantasies, and sexual imaginings that lead us down a path. It can start with just a small thought that seems to kind of drift into our brain.Then something inside grabs a hold of it. And we muse on it. And it grows and grows, until we're doing things that we promised ourselves and others that we wouldn't do.So the imagination has been taken captive, and we're doing it again.What we want to remember in this podcast is that the imagination initially was not Satan's idea. It's something that he seeks to use to draw us away from God, but it wasn't his invention.The imagination is God's invention.But what did he design it for, and how can we utilize the way that God intended our imagination to be: to help us grow into the kind of people who are people of sexual integrity, sexual wholeness, and sexual maturity?Can you think about ways to engage your imagination to fill your life with the good of your imagination as opposed to allowing it to continue to move towards vices. I'm gonna give you four or five different ideas to help you answer these questions.Where are you using your imagination and creativity?Where can you use your imagination towards moving towards that brighter future?Where are you using your imagination for relationships?Where are you using your imagination to help you grow in faith?Help the show:Support the show.Help us improve the show.Leave a review.Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.Follow us on YouTube for behind the scenes and more.

Madi was 13 when she first encountered pornography. As a young Christian woman, she struggled to find resources online to help young women overcome addiction as most resources were for women who discovered their husband's addiction and for men struggling with addiction. Feeling isolated and alone living a dual life, she finally got up the nerve to disclose what was going on to her father and local church leader. Madi reminds us that we are seen. That God loves us. That the battle is real, and we are enough when we are connected to God and others.

Let's Keep Talking with Braxton Gilbert
Last week I talked about quitting porn, and how all easy access forms of dopamine can wreak havoc on your life when you are trying to be responsible, driven, and disciplined. We talked about how dopamine is like an Easter egg with a reward inside and how life is structured in a way that natural rewards (or Easter eggs) are hidden behind things that we do that are good for us. Sex, food, water, exercise, work, etc. We also talked about how the Easter egg hunt of life is tough, and if you have access to get Easter eggs without the work, you would start to be less and less interested in your life, and become an egg addict..I wanted to structure last week's conversation in a way that could be relatable to people with any kind of easy dopamine habit, so that we can all benefit. This week, I want to hyper focus on one in particular. Pornography. And if porn is something that you feel is harming your life, I want to inspire you to give it up, like I am.⬇️⬇️⬇️Watch this episode and many more on my Youtube channel!
Behind the Mike: Conversations of Hope
There may have been a time when pornography seemed like just "a guy issue"; something that all guys do. However, we now know that pornography affects the body and brain similarly to heroin.Dannah Gresh experienced what many spouses are experiencing today when her husband, Bob, confessed his sexual and porn addiction. Although he was in ministry and did not want to hurt his wife, there was no other way to confess.Dannah wavered between hurt, self-loathing, and anger. She settled on the fact that she made a commitment to her husband before God to love him 'for better or for worse' and was committed to help Bob find healing.I sat down with Bob & Dannah to discuss their story, which culminated in her new book, "Happily Even After: Let God Redeem Your Marriage". This is one of the most vulnerable and transparent interviews I've experienced. Because of their willingness to allow us to look into those areas of their life, I believe countless marriages can find the healing that they are experiencing.------------------------FROM THE SHOW:Get Dannah's Book!https://amzn.to/417KZihRebecca's Website:https://dannahgresh.com/Happily Even After Podcast:https://open.spotify.com/show/1al4PzAf04JvZx3PCnh4IiFollow Rebecca:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dannah_gresh/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dannahgresh.truegirlSupport the show----------------------------------------MORE ABOUT THE PODCAST:Behind The Mike website:https://BehindTheMikePodcast.comEmail:Mike@BehindTheMike.netSUPPORT THE SHOW"Buy Me a Coffee"SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS:Sponsor a Child Through Compassion:compassioninternational.sjv.io/XYxJg4Covenant EyesGet 30-days FREE using promo code: BEHINDTHEMIKEhttps://covenanteyes.comWatch these podcasts on YouTube!Follow Us!FacebookInstagram

Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast
Episode Summary: Lust is a man's problem, right? Wrong. When we see lust as an exclusively male issue, it leaves Christian women with nowhere to turn when they struggle with the same things. A 2016 Barna study found 20 percent of Christian women use porn regularly. These women suffer silently and often feel alone with nowhere to turn. There are numerous resources for men struggling, but not women. Today's guest, Jessica Harris, made it her mission to break the silence, banish the shame, and bring women's struggles into the light of God's grace and forgiveness. Jessica and I talk about how Christian women can overcome porn addiction and sexual shame. Quotables from the episode: With the advent of the internet came pornography accessibility to women. At the core of pornography addiction is loneliness, pressure to go further into other sexual exploits and harm. Often, those who struggle with porn addiction are searching for comfort, for belonging, and even the desire to disappear. Their worth, value, and identity become wrapped up and all about sex. Pornography divorces sex and intimacy. God has grace for women who struggle with pornography and/or sexual shame. Women who struggle with pornography can have a vibrant, abundant, and full life and future. We are image bearers of God, so our worth comes from Christ. He loves us and bought us with a price. The 3 signposts of shame are: 1) warning sign: during which there is an absorption with self; 2) Flight from exposure: we isolate from others to minimize the same; 3) Violence: we lash out and protect what we try to hide. Shame isolates; whereas God welcomes us into holiness. What hope do we have if we believe that the Giver of freedom wants nothing to do with us? The message Christian women need isn't “stop watching porn” or “porn is bad and contributes to human trafficking” etc. Instead, what they need is a reminder of God's grace and to know that shame is trying to keep them from the one relationship they need in order to experience true life-giving freedom. Grace is something we need every single day. Every single one of us. It doesn't matter our backstory, shame is always looking for a way to separate us from God, isolate us, and drive us back into the comforts we once knew (sin). There is grace and freedom to be found by drawing nearer to God not hiding from Him. When you are in the thick of a pornography addiction, or even in the beginning of trying to break free, it can feel like a battle you will never win. It can feel like you are going to spend the rest of your life actively fighting this, and I would want them to know that is not the case. Christ offers us freedom and abundant life and science itself has even proven that our minds and bodies can heal. So while the ideal picture of freedom might seem impossible right now, it's not impossible. Nothing is impossible with God. Shame, by its nature, isolates. It drives us into darkness and into secrecy and we lie to ourselves when we try to convince ourselves we can find freedom on our own. Part of freedom is found in community. Scripture References: John 4:13-14 ESV “Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 10:10 HCSB “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 15:4 ESV “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.” Recommended Resources: Quenched: Discovering God's Abundant Grace for Women Struggling with Pornography and Sexual Shame by Jessica Harris Today is Going to be a Good Day: 90 Promises to Start Your Day Off Right by Dr. Michelle Bengtson YouVersion 7-Day Devotional, Today is Going to be a Good Day YouVersion 7-Day Devotional, Today is Going to be Another Good Day Breaking Anxiety's Grip: How to Reclaim the Peace God Promises by Dr. Michelle Bengtson Breaking Anxiety's Grip Free Study Guide Free 7-Day YouVersion Bible Reading Plan for Breaking Anxiety's Grip Hope Prevails: Insights from a Doctor's Personal Journey Through Depression by Dr. Michelle Bengtson, winner of the Christian Literary Award Reader's Choice Award Hope Prevails Bible Study by Dr. Michelle Bengtson, winner of the Christian Literary Award Reader's Choice Award Trusting God Through Cancer 1 Trusting God Through Cancer 2 Revive & Thrive Women's Conference Subdue Stress and Anxiety: Fifteen Experts Offer Comprehensive Tools in Ten Minutes a Day.

“Feminist views on pornography range from total condemnation of the medium as an inherent form of violence against women to an embracing of some forms as a medium of feminist expression. This debate reflects larger concerns surrounding feminist views on sexuality, and is closely related to those on prostitution, BDSM, and other issues. Pornography has been one of the most divisive issues in feminism, particularly in Anglophone (English-speaking) countries. This division was exemplified in the feminist sex wars of the 1980s, which pitted anti-pornography activists against pro-pornography ones.” I am open to being with decent adults as my hospitality companions of the entire human diversity (on-screen and off-screen.) If you're an desensitized lover to yourself, than you're a desensitized lover to me.

Do you desire to please God with your life? Do you also struggle with sinful thoughts and habits? There's a conflict going on there, right? On the one hand there's a desire to please God. Yet on the other there's a strong desire to please self. In Gal. 5:17 Paul reminds us that the flesh is in conflict with the spirit – and the spirit is in conflict with the flesh. They are opposed to each other making it difficult to do what is right. Welcome to The Point of Purity Podcast.

Youth Culture Today with Walt Mueller
Parents, the latest statistics on when teenagers see pornography should remind us that it's not a matter of if, but when. Consequently, we should be talking to our kids about pornography at younger ages than we might first imagine. The research, from Common Sense Media, tells us that the average age for first time exposure to online pornography is twelve. Fifteen percent of those surveyed saw it when they were ten years old or younger. More than half of the respondents were not looking for pornography. Rather, they report seeing it online accidentally. In other words, pornography found them rather than the other way around. Thirty-one percent viewed online porn while at school. And fifty-two percent report seeing pornography depicting what appears to be rape, choking, or other types of violent sexual behavior. Pornography is a fallen, twisted, and sinful expression of God's good gift of sexuality. Talk and keep talking about the purpose and place of God's gift of sex.

In this episode, I sit down with Mike and Erin together to discuss where they are in the healing journey. The conversation covers a great deal of how they are working together on a daily basis to restore their fractured marriage.This episode concludes the 4-part series about the effects of pornography on one person, a marriage, and an extended group of friends and family. Pornography may seem harmless, but it can have a significant impact on our mental health, relationships, and faith. It's important that we acknowledge the dangers and work towards having a heart that seeks God holistically; being truthful with ourselves and vulnerable with trusted friends and family.Episode-related resources:If you are looking for help with unhealthy sexual behavior, please check out Pure Desire.

Finish Strong With Fearless Faith
There is a battle going on for the soul of every person on this planet. Satan is attacking with everything he's got, because he knows his days are numbered. He wants to take as many people down as he can, so it is important to understand that he attacks us in the areas where we are weak.On this episode of Finish Strong,we explore God's command to put on the full armor of God. This command is found in Ephesians 6:10-18 in the Bible. After we put on the armor, we need to know how to use the weapons that God has given us which are laid out in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10.

On the day that the Pornography Wars is released, we re-release Brad's interview with the author Dr. Kelsy Burke, a sociologist from the University of Nebraska. https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/pornography-wars-9781635577365/ Burke spent the last five years researching and interviewing internet pornography's opponents and its sympathizers. She does a deep dive into the long history of pornography in America and then turns her gaze on our present society to examine the ways this industry touches on the most intimate parts of American lives. She offers a complete understanding of the major players in the debates around porn's place in society: everyone from sex workers, activists, therapists, religious leaders, and consumers. In doing so, she addresses and debunks the myths that surround porn and porn usage while showing how everything from the way we teach children about sex to the legal protections for what can be published is tied up in the deeply complicated battles over pornography.
