The world’s most underestimated drug?

The world’s most underestimated drug, Pornography,  attacks the home so stealthily and effectively that by the time many couples decide to do something about it, they’re already on a path that ultimately ends in divorce and potential emotional and psychological trauma for their children.

Consider just three of the various areas of attack that this drug is lethally active in:

1.  Fantasy  is the superficial counterfeit that erodes authentic love in the home. In His teaching on adultery, Jesus considers even fantasizing about casual sex to be the same as physically indulging in it (Matthew 5:27).

2.   Intensity  is the dangerous obsession that leads people to want to lie with each other (Genesis 39:7, 2 Samuel 13:1-11). The regrettable consequences of chasing intensity for its own sake can be seen most poignantly in the horrifying sexual assault statistics of this world.

3.   Numbing is the unfortunate effect produced by the indulgence of lustful sensuality (Ephesians 4:19) is the often undetected poison that kills married love.

These three weapons (fantasy, intensity and numbing), are just a few of the munitions in the vast arsenal known to the world as pornography. The illicit scenes depicted in pornographic material have a powerful numbing effect which, through continued use – progressively deadens the brain’s capacity for processing emotion. Sadly, the health and growth of family relationships depends heavily on the extent to which family members connect with and relate to each other by processing and sharing their emotional realities. Pornography is expertly designed to draw the user out of reality into the fantasy world where people are cruelly stripped of their identity as created beings of God meant for love. In this fantasy world, the image of a lustful, mindless sex object is forced onto men and women. The sad reality however is that many of the adults and children depicted in pornographic media are paid sex workers or victims of the world’s depraved system of human trafficking. The use of this mental and emotional drug leaves countless wrecked families in its wake and is often as destructive as, if not more so than any known addiction.

The trouble with pornography is that users seem able and willing to find any and every justification to keep using, convinced that they really control it, that they are not addicts and that it is something everybody does. Fortunately for the Christian, scripture provides the truth that the iniquities a person does will trap him or her, he or she will be held with the cords of their sin (Proverbs 5:22, 23). Any person who has ever been addicted can testify to the fact that they may want to break free and may even believe they control their habit. But the word of God shows that sin, in all its forms is addictive and leaves a person feeling trapped and held onto, without the power to break free.

At MOBIEG, addiction specialists Kennith De Kock applies time tested, internationally leading principles to equip and empower any person caught in the deception of pornography, to break free and stay free long enough to establish and secure a fulfilling, fruitful life that has no place at all for pornography and problematic sexual behaviour.

Pornography Addiction

Computer keys concept of internet online or cyber porn

Pornography addiction is an addiction model of compulsive sexual activity with concurrent use of pornographic material, despite negative consequences to one’s physical, mental, social, or financial well-being.

Problematic internet pornography viewing is viewing of Internet pornography that is problematic for an individual due to personal or social reasons, including excessive time spent viewing pornography instead of interacting with others. Individuals may report depression, social isolation, career loss, decreased productivity, or financial consequences as a result of their excessive Internet pornography viewing impeding on their social life.

 

Sex Addiction

Sexual addiction, also known as sex addiction, is a state characterized by compulsive participation or engagement in sexual activity, particularly sexual intercourse, despite negative consequences. Proponents of a diagnostic model for sexual addiction, as defined here, consider it to be one of several sex-related disorders within an umbrella concept known as hypersexual disorder. In clinical diagnostics, the term sexual dependence may also refer to a conceptual model that is used to assess people who report being unable to control their sexual urges, behaviors, or thoughts. Related models of pathological sexual behavior include hypersexuality, erotomania, nymphomania, satyriasis, Don Juanism (or Don Juanitaism), and paraphilia-related disorders.

Clinicians, such as psychiatrists, sociologists, sexologists, and other specialists, have differing opinions on the classification and clinical diagnosis of sexual addiction. As a result, “sexual addiction” does not exist as a clinical entity in either the DSM or ICD medical classifications of diseases and medical disorders. In South Africa medical aid schemes do not provide cover for the counselling of porn addiction. MOBIEG however does offer help for this addiction:
