Paul and Grant Snyder on ‘Live The Promise’ with Susie Larson

Today, Grant Snyder from the Minneapolis Police Department and I went on ‘Live The Promise’ with Susie Larson to talk about the relationship between pornography and human trafficking. I shared my story on Susie’s show just a couple of months ago and we talked extensively then about how pornography affects our brains and our lives. So today we focused on how the neuro-chemical reaction to watching pornography leads to needing more and more of the porn, just like a chemical drug, in order to achieve satisfaction. Eventually, the pornography itself is no longer enough and the person begins to act out in real life by having an extramarital affair, engaging in cyber sexual activities with live people or looking for real life casual encounters online.

Intimacy is the problem, and the solution

imagesWhen I was busted in my addiction in 2011 and all my activities were exposed, I immediately went into recovery mode by trying to fix everything in my life that I knew was broken such as my relationship with my wife and kids, my finances and most importantly my relationship with God. I knew I needed to get my relationship with Christ back on track as soon as possible. Continue reading Intimacy is the problem, and the solution

Pornography isn’t so bad- right?

Maybe some of you have seen the Time Magazine article titled “Study: Porn May Not Be Such a Bad Influence on Sexual Behavior”  The fact that this article is found in the “sex” section of Time On-Line shouldn’t surprise anybody.
