The facts

Pornography changes the way people think and ruins relationships.

Pornography consumption leads to an ever growing appetite for more graphic types of pornography and more extreme sexual activity. More people than ever, including Christians, are struggling with compulsive and addictive sexual behavior.

Using pornographic material also puts you at increased risk of:

  • developing sexually deviant tendencies
  • committing sexual offenses
  • accepting rape myths

Marriages affected

  • Decreased marital intimacy and sexual satisfaction
  • Devaluation of monogamy, marriage and child rearing
  • Increased marital distress, and risk of separation and divorce
  • 56% of divorce cases involve one party having an obsessive interest in pornographic websites
  • 70% of wives of self-identified sex addicts suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder

Relationship with God affected

  • ‘You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.’ (Matthew 5v27-28 ESV)
