Why Is Pornography So Compelling?

As you absorb the reasons why pornography is so compelling, you begin to understand why porn controls your mind (decisions) and how you stop caring about the risky consequences of pornography.

Psychologically, the beliefs that the culture has accepted has made sex something that it is not. For example, sex is


Worst Sin

Inappropriate to Discuss.

These limiting beliefs made being sexually active more compelling.

Many individuals turn to pornography because it is readily available at any moment needed.

Pornography is compelling because the euphoric highs and the exhilarating feelings almost make it impossible to set limits.

These experiences wipe away reality.  People want more and more to the point of dangerous consequences.  They have fallen into a sexual addiction that follows them into social settings.

Loving Sex Makes You One

Limiting Beliefs

Some of us grew up believing sex outside of marriage was a horrible sin.

Loving sexual experiences are for lasting commitments.  Enjoying one another in blissful love is a gift from God.

Trying to avoid sexual feelings only exasperates the natural functions of the body, mind, heart. and soul.  Pent up emotion makes sex a grappling temptation.

Arousal feelings (sexual) come and go.

These sensations are okay.

They feel good, don’t they?

An individual simply allows the body to process the feelings or sensations.

Focusing on sustaining sexual sensations may lead to unwanted consequences; unless, a person is lovingly connecting with someone.

What happens when sex becomes a compulsive exercise?

With pornography, the euphoria feels great now but awful later because it is unnatural.

“The gift of sex is spiritual.”

In the year 1971 I became a store manager at age 19. I discovered I had a gift for mentoring. I gave one on one coaching, instruction and teaching with ease. And, I loved it. However, I had a problem that held me back from achieving my full potential. I was addicted to porn. When I was going through my puberty years in life, I found pornography (adult magazines) in my Dad's closet. I was hooked. I had my ups and downs throughout my life: Ups, when I was off of porn and using my gift: and, Downs, when I was using porn. Porn captured my attention, holding me back. I found the secrets to breaking free from porn. Like anyone else, I have to work at keeping my emotions positive, every day, to stay free. Limiting emotions--fear, doubt, hate, lust, sloth, pride, any emotion that kills joy. Joy is the ultimate weapon against porn. You have it; porn loses its hold on you. I dedicate this blog to those who are looking for ways to end pornography in their life. To Your Peace, Power and Plenty, Dale P.S. The picture above is not me. The photo represents all families free from pornography.

  1. Well said. People are beautifully human but also divine. Sex is a good thing, but we have to treat it like a gift with spiritual implications.

    People are funny, some like to say the worse sins are smoking, sex, and loud music. Being a mom, I can really hear parental will in that statement, rather than God’s will.

    1. I understand what you are saying. You are absolutely right. The topic that I posted has many directions. Being a parent and grandparent, I think sex is the most challenging topic to discuss because the wrong implications can cause harm. Thank you, Gabriel. I am grateful for your comment!
