More and more people are finally talking about the neurological impacts of porn and the way it affects our ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy. I hope you see the relational impact it’s having on all of us—not only are we affected in our single, dating, and married life, but our children will be impacted, too. So much so that Iceland is considering banning pornography from their Internet all together.
Here is a video that our friend, Josh, shared that is a really quick synopsis of what happens to our brain when we view pornography.
And below is the first video I ever filmed back in the “vintage” days of 2010. The themes I share in this are common for so many of us. But the legit thing about God’s design of the brain (similar to what the above video explains) is that we do have the power and freewill to retrain our brain.
Look, choices have repercussions and while some of us are subject to environments that make our choices more difficult, we still have the ultimate say in deciding if we will let that environment dictate our destiny.
It takes work—and for some of us, serious therapy—but whatever choice you make, it will impact your spouse or future spouse.
Striving to seek reality over fantasy (and yes this includes Unicorns),
In light of the linked article on Iceland, how do we encourage freedom of speech yet protect children? Who is responsible?
How can we create an environment for people to talk about this without feeling shame?
Question to ponder: How will my current fantasies impact my spouses reality? Do I care?
