8/20 The Issue of Porn and Total Wholeness

We continue with the issues of sexuality and the Body onto another important topic: the influence of porn on the health of the body.

Here is a YouTube story on ‘The Impact of Pornography on the Male Psyche’ (Pt.1) produced by Scurry254624·46 videos

Pornography is powerful. Our contemporary culture has been ‘pornified’ and it shapes our assumptions about identity, sexuality, the value of women and the nature of relationships. Countless Christian men struggle with the addictive power of porn. But common spiritual approaches of more prayer and accountability groups are often of limited help.

Wired for intimacy

Another resource for dealing with porn and intimacy:
In this book, ‘Wired for Intimacy’, neuroscientist and researcher William Struthers explains how pornography affects the male brain and what we can do about it. Because we are embodied beings, viewing pornography changes how the brain works, how we form memories and make attachments. By better understanding the biological realities of our sexual development, we can cultivate healthier sexual perspectives and interpersonal relationships.

Struthers exposes false assumptions and casts a vision for a redeemed masculinity, showing how our sexual longings can actually propel us toward sanctification and holiness in our bodies.

With insights for both married and single men alike, this book offers hope for freedom from pornography.

Dr. Struthers describes how pornography hijacks the male brain.  He uses the latest brain science studies to show what takes place in the brain during sexual activity, whether licit or illicit.
