Stan Lee


“Several years ago, I would have considered myself complacent if not downright indifferent about the issue of pornography. Today, I feel a sense of urgency about this issue that often

surprises me.”

“The Impact of Pornography on Women” July, 2008


MYTH #1

“It doesn’t affect me”


“A single twenty-something graphic designer told me he would find himself in bars berating himself over the way he scanned potential dates…

Pamela Paul


…I’d be saying, ‘No, her breasts are too small, she’s not worth it,’ then wonder, ‘Who have I become? Why am I judging women like this?”

“From Pornography to Porno to Porn: How Porn Became the Norm” July, 2008

Pamela Paul


“The problem with soft-core pornography is that it’s voyeurism—it teaches men to view women as objects rather than to be in relationships with women as human beings.”

“From Pornography to Porno to Porn: How Porn Became the Norm” July, 2008

Dr. Gary Brooks


“Demand for it [anal sex] is largely psychological and the result of a porn-inspired script about the anticipated pleasures of anal sex.”

Oxford Press

2011, p. 94


The Script of Porn:

Sex is best experienced outside of a loving relationship


The Script of Porn:

All women want sex from men


The Script of Porn:

3. Women like all sexual acts men perform or demand


The Script of Porn:

4. Any woman who does not at first realize this can be persuaded with a little force


MYTH #2

“I’ll quit later”


“The human brain is, without question, the most complicated three-pound mass in the universe.”

~ Dr. Joe McIlhaney


The Brain:

Not fully formed

until 25-29 years

of age

1. Neurons

2. Support Cells


1. Neurons

2. Support Cells

3. Synapses


“Neurons that fire together wire together”


“We can acquire sexual and romantic tastes and inclinations that get wired into our brains…


…and can have a powerful impact for the rest of our lives.”


Your brain becomes trained to sexually cue a computer.”


“Boys who look at pornography excessively become men who connect arousal purely with the physical, losing the ability to become attracted by the particular features of a given partner…

Pamela Paul


…Instead, they recreate images from pornography in their brain while they’re with a real person.”

“From Pornography to Porno to Porn: How Porn Became the Norm” July, 2008

Pamela Paul


1. Neurons

2. Support Cells

3. Synapses

4. Neurochemicals

The “reward” chemical that makes us feel good for taking risks


Oxytocin

The “bonding” hormone that triggers feelings of trust


Genesis 2:24


Vasopressin

“monogamy molecule” that causes bonding in males


Prairie Voles


Michael Leahy


MYTH #3

“I’m not hurting anyone”


“I have no idea who he is anymore”


“I feel like I have lived a lie the entire time…”


“I thought we had a good marriage…”


Betrayal

loss

anger

devastation

mistrust


True intimacy is being fully known and fully knowing another


“But we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God…”

~ 2 Corinthians 4:2


“…but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

~ 2 Corinthians 4:2
