0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

The number of video hosting websites has grown in recent years. Some of these websites are more popular than others, including Youtube and Google Video. Within the last year, many of these websites have started to offer money to video creators. This is a great incentive for independent producers who are trying to gain exposure and possibly revenue from their work. However, it is very difficult to attract an audience among the video garbage that is posted online.

Video hosting websites have an open door to anyone who wants to upload a video online. This allows filmmakers, Teenagers and bored office workers to post almost anything on these destinations. Online user videos include everything from a professionally made video to images of someone’s dog eating Fruit Loops. Whether profitable or not, the these online websites have become a video hosting heaven to millions of people around the world.

The internet never has a shortage of spammers. These people are everywhere online and have even moved into the social networking community. It is no surprise that spam is also included on video websites. Video spammers are posting tons of useless videos onto the most popular and profitable websites. These videos contain …

Can Child Pornography on Gnutella Be Stopped?

0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

Much has been done over the past thirteen years to stop the proliferation of child pornography online. Sites like ASACP.org and perverted-justice.com have put up massive efforts to shutdown websites advocating child pornography and convict child predators. But one of the biggest distributors of child pornography online has been largely overlooked, the peer-to-peer file sharing network known as Gnutella.

 

Using simple downloading software like LimeWire, BearShare and Gtk-Gnutella, users can easily share thousands of videos and images containing child pornography. These networks are unmonitored and offer the greatest potential threat to the safety of the children who are being abused because of its services. However, tracking down file sharers on this network has become nearly impossible due to their anonymity. The problem lies in the fact that Gnutella servers are powered by end user PCs rather than dedicated machines on registered networks.

A few individuals have tried to call attention to this problem. Individuals like Jorge Gonzalez, owner of the Zeropaid.com who set up a fake Gnutella server hosting hundreds of bogus child pornographic images. The purpose of the server was to catch those who attempted to download these images by recording their IP addresses, and then listing them on …

Alternative Methods Using the Bible to Deal with Porn

“Do unto yourself what you would normally do to others.” – Biloxi Blues

Most adults suffer from unnecessary worry and guilt due to misunderstanding the relationship between words, photography and procreation. Though they are indirectly connected by several industries, but since they can exist without one another, they are not “sin enablers” of themselves.

Both men and women, married and unmarried, have suffered from depression, self-rejection and undue worry, in regards to avoiding sexual impurity, or the accusations of such, all of which are among the provable causes for increased cancer cells in the body.

When Jesus taught people not to worry, He wasn’t just speaking of positive thinking. He warned us that worry can lead to a shortened life span.

Most church leaders don’t know how to tackle the issue of porn. I have sat through countless substandard sermons on the topic and have taken the liberty to call out some of the worst offenders in regards to an “anti porn” curriculum.

Buying their books or having them talk to your church group about their life experiences making or dealing with porn industry actors or producers will not draw you any closer to God.

Christians are already imputed with …

Can Women Be Addicted to Porn?

0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

 

When most people think of porn addiction, they picture a man. Although it’s true that men are the people most likely to be addicted to porn, women can be porn addicted as well. Like most addictions, porn is not gender specific. What starts as sheer curiosity can quickly become an obsession for women and men alike, especially when accompanied by masturbation. An orgasm is the ultimate high, and isn’t limited to men only. Why wouldn’t porn be addictive for both sexes?

 

Statistics 
Women can be and are addicted to porn. In fact, about seventeen percent of people who admit they are internet porn addicted are women. This is equal to the amount of women admittedly addicted to drugs and alcohol. Seventeen percent may not seem like a large number. Remember, there are other forms of porn. The internet is not the only source of pornography. That raises the number of porn addicted women significantly.

Venues 
Internet porn is the most likely venue to attract women. Most women are somewhat more secretive about their porn addictions than men. They are not as likely to walk into a convenience store to buy a magazine as men. They are also less likely to …

Sexting Teens Charged with Child Pornography

0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

Six western Pennsylvania teenagers are being charged with child pornography as a result of engaging in “sexting.” As defined by CBS News, “sexting” is “sending nude pictures via text message.” And, apparently, it is a behavior that is quite common among the nation’s teenagers. A nationwide survey shows that about 20% of teenagers admit that they have indulged in sexting.

Clearly, authorities consider sexting to be a serious crime. In fact, CBS legal analyst Lisa Bloom says that sexting is a serious felony, and that the six aforementioned teens could be facing prison time.

One really has to question whether prison time is a bit too harsh a penalty for these young people to pay for their transgressions. It would seem reasonable to conclude that rational people of all political and religious persuasions would agree with Lisa Bloom when she asks, “What are we going to do, lock up 20 percent of America’s teens?”

To be sure, an adult who sends nude pictures of children and teens via a text message would deserve to punished to the full extent of the law. But our judicial system has traditionally drawn a distinction between adult and juvenile crime. That distinction seems to …

Is Your Teen Looking at Porn on the Internet?

0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

With the busy schedules that parents have these days, it is getting much harder to monitor the children that we love. Not only do we have to worry about Myspace predators and Facebook sickos, but the Internet is chock full of sites that contain pornography and other images or videos not suitable for young eyes. So how do we know if our teen is looking at sex porn sites?

Monitor or limit the time they spend on the Internet.

If your teen is allowed, they will spend their entire lives on the computer – hooking up with friends on social sites like Myspace or Facebook, visiting chat rooms and forums, or playing video games. However, if parents lay down some rules, many bad things can be avoided.

For instance, if the computer is placed in a common area of the house, such as the living room or family room, your teen is much less likely to spend great amounts of time on porn sites looking at sex pictures.

Check your browser history often and install a key logger.

Your teen may be able to find sex sites on their own, but some of them may not know how to cover …

Porn addiction isn’t something that happens to only a few people. Nearly 70% of all searches on the internet are related to sex, porn or nude woman. This is a staggering figure considering all the websites that have nothing to do with porn. If you are addicted to porn you might won’t to consider the damage you are causing yourself and others.

It is natural for men to want to see nude pictures of woman. Men are much more visual than woman and simply seeing a nude picture sparks arousal. This arousal is as or more important than actual release. With each new picture the person addicted to porn wants to see just one more. They could spend hours of the day in pursuit of just one more picture.

Reasons Why Porn Addiction is Damaging:

Self-Esteem: We have learned from religious and moral teachings in childhood that porn is damaging to our soul. As adults we may be addicted to porn and this creates a moral dilemma within us. This moral dilemma continues to eat away our positive concepts of ourselves and leaves us feeling weak.

Marriages: It isn’t likely that your spouse will appreciate you holding up for hours …

Confessions of a Porn Addict

Where to begin, well I guess I should start with my child hood and what led up to my addiction.

I was born in France in the year 1989, my parents who were missionary’s traveled around Europe where they had two other children. At the age of six I moved to Africa with them where we worked in Nigeria and different war torn countries in Africa.

We lived with another family who’s kids were around are age. Now from a young age I was always fascinated by sex, from the first time I walked in on my parents doing it, I knew it was something special.

When I was around eight, I began to play mommy and daddy with the other missionary family’s daughter who was a year older then me. As time went on we started playing truth or dare, I never had sex with her though, we would just fool around. Then when I was ten my parents split up, my dad took us three boys and my mom took my younger sister. We moved down to South Africa and away from that other missionary family. I know most boys when their young despise girls and think they’re …

Impact of Pornography Addiction on Marriage

0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

It is unfortunate but in many marriages today face the damage from pornography addiction. To help understand where pornography stems from and the impact pornography has on marriage, I have interviewed therapist Jeff King LCSW.

 

Tell me a little bit about yourself. 
“I am I license Specialist Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Sex Addictions Therapist. I have been working with sexual addiction for 10 years and am currently in private practice and started the Centre for Sexual and Relationship in Oct of 2008.”

Where does pornography addiction stem from? 
“Sexual addiction does not occur in a vacuum and does not have one single cause. Sexual addiction is a secrecy disorder and when one starts to keep secrets about their sexual behavior then they develop shame. This shame then leads them to behave in a way that is shameful. That is why the primary treatment for sexual addiction is disclosure and group accountability. Exposure to the internet is a common way in which one becomes sexually addicted. Because they start to view things that no one knows about and that they feel shame about what they are doing. The more they keep this a secret then more addicted they become. …

Online Pornography Addiction

0 commentsPorn Addiction Help

 

Various types of sex addictions are prevalent. While some cases are mild, and classified by the constant need for sexual gratification, other cases are so severe that they threaten a person’s relationships with family and friends. Because sex addiction is a hush-hush topic, few understand the gravity of the addiction. Jokingly, some people term themselves as sex addicts. However, an addiction to sex involves more than an enjoyment of sexual relations. In most cases, the addict is so consumed or preoccupied with sex, he or she will go to extreme lengths to fulfill their addiction. Often times, online pornography functions as a tool. Pornography is very addictive. Even though this addiction is common among men, there are a number of women with a constant need for viewing pornography. Regrettably, once an addiction to porn is born, overcoming the problem can be challenging. Even if a person is determined to stop obsessing over pornography, mental images remain imprinted on their brain, which makes the addiction hard to break.
