Pornography is Not Just a Male Problem

You may recall from a few weeks ago our discussion of lust, sex, pornography, and adultery.  One of the things we talked about is how this is not just a young male problem, but it encompasses people of all genders and age.  Recently, the New York Times published an article on how one church is counseling women addicted to pornography.  Though it is a long article, it is fascinating to read.

Though women are more audible and seek to be noticed, pornography is becoming more popular among woman.  This means that as Christians move forward in this society, we must realize that this industry is growing in ways that we may want to refuse to believe.  We live in a highly sexual world that needs the grace of God.
