Two Becoming One Flesh Isn’t Just Sex

What Sends You Down That Road?

If you’re going to take a trip, it starts with a thought and a desire first. Maybe you see a photo of an exotic island in a travel magazine. You entertain thoughts of what it would be like. You wonder how much it would cost and when you could go. Then you start to search for tickets online. It was just an idea, and before you know it you’re taking action.

Love, Sex and All That Jazz

Love, Sex and All That Jazz

Here is a challenge for you. Do a Google search with the question below and see how many answers you get. If there is one thing human beings are confused about – it’s love. What is Love? If you could unlock the answer to this question you would be the genius of all time. Some say love is chemistry, and some say love is passionate commitment. The Greeks had 6 words for what we lump into one word, no wonder it’s confusing. However, we know when we feel loved. Yet, to love someone doesn’t always feel good. That’s usually when…

Sex With No Hands Involved

Sex With No Hands Involved

Are porn videos realistic? Actors assume awkward positions so that cameras can get the shot. Actors are also made to do extreme sexual acts that under normal circumstances would be painful, or undesirable for most people. It’s fantasy meant to shock and stimulate the release hormones and neurotransmitters, which trap the user into seeking more. Does Internet Porn Cause More Violence? In 1982, the National Institute of Mental Health identified these major effects on children viewing violence on television: Children may become less sensitive to pain and suffering. Children become more fearful of the world around them. Children are more likely to behave in…

Erectile Dysfunction at 22? A Symptom of Early Porn Addiction

Erectile Dysfunction at 22? A Symptom of Early Porn Addiction

Driven by a brain that is suddenly fascinated by sex at 10 years old, boys easily become captivated by internet porn. Children can develop personal sexual integrity and discipline if parents teach them about love, privacy, respect, and future relationships, starting from a young age.  But we also need to teach them how to deal with temptation and peer pressure. It’s wise to reduce overall internet activity and guide children’s free time toward hobbies, sports and healthy activities. Many young men found internet porn at a young age, and now experience erectile dysfunction in early adulthood. Usually guys discover they have…

You can build a wall, but the enemy will find a way over or under it. Pornography is the enemy of childhood and it’s targeting all children.

Your belief in your son or daughter, and clear guidance, will give them strength. Protect Young Minds…

Why People Think Watching Porn Is Normal

Why People Think Watching Porn Is Normal

I saw this infographic with porn statistics on Huffington Post. The title for the infographic is “Everyone You Know is Watching Porn”. That sounds like an excuse an elementary school child would use, “but everyone does it!” And the good parent says, “That doesn’t make it right.” In our current culture, right and wrong are always relative. Religion and moral standards have been trashed as being “old-fashioned” and naïve. Instead we value individual feelings, and freedom of expression. Oh, but we only value what everyone else is doing and saying. There’s very little independent thinking going on. Who Needs to…
