This Super Bowl Sunday, church may be as jarring as a quarterback sack for some worshippers who, after settling into their pews, discover that the subject of the morning’s sermon is pornography.
More than 300 churches are expected to celebrate National Porn Sunday on Feb. 6. The members will watch a video sermon featuring current and former NFL players talking about their struggles with pornography.
“No one knew my problem was this bad,” former New York Jets wide receiver Eric Boles says in the video.
“I would go home, and I would sit there, and the laptop and I would have a conversation,” says Josh McCown, who played quarterback for several NFL teams, most recently the Carolina Panthers. “And I would battle with not even wanting to open it, not even wanting to check e-mails because I knew where it might lead me.”

… And here’s a female perspective:
I am considered good looking, keep fit, and look a lot younger than my age. I used to not mind when my husband watched porn because I like it too, at times. But now he would rather watch it behind my back. I don’t get it. I want to do all those things in videos with him but he would rather just jerk off. I am lonely and horny. I am so tired of not having sex with a person anymore that I am seriously considering leaving. He has become over stimulated and can no longer have regular sex. I can’t live a sexless life.
Why would anyone prefer synthetic sex to a real mate? Because its constant novelty, or superhuman vibrations, make possible an intense drug-like high that no familiar mate can match. Although an artificially produced high is not as deeply fulfilling as sex with you, it can be more compelling under certain circumstances. …

FREEBALLING allows instant access to your COCK and NUTS. One tug on the zipper or pop a button or two and there is YOUR TUBE. It affords the opportunity to reach within your waistband anytime you want and feel yourself up or fondle the weight of your NUTSAK. It is ideal for displaying your arousal when flipping through GAY rags at the corner magazine shoppe or video arcade, whichever you might frequent. It also, permits the freeflow of PRE down the inside of your leg afterward. And what about PISSING or standing at the URINAL like a soldier? If you URINATE by dropping your pants, it offers a nice view of your ASS to other DICKS and if it is just unzip and pull it out, well there you go, it’s right in your hand. And the last few drops, you know well where they go. Don’t you?

Below is a 22-minute video of her statement at Princeton University in association with the Witherspoon Institute’s “The Social Costs of Pornography.” She mentions three groups of women she has worked with who have been negatively impacted by pornography: (1) adolescent females exposed to pornography from a young age, (2) adult female consumers of pornography, and (3) wives of consumers.

How To Spot A Masturbator | ChristWire.
…Despite the warnings of doctors and religious scholars, masturbation still remains very popular in America. As a society, this degree of self-manipulation goes too far in familiarizing men and women with their bodies. These people become less active in their communities and begin to see themselves as sexual predators whose sole purpose is to climax at the end of the night. Masturbation has had a ruinous effect on theinstitution of marriage. Countless couples have been destroyed by porn addiction, many other men have just given up on the idea of marriage because they prefer to pleasure themselves whenever they choose, free from the interruptions of family life.
LOVING VIGILANCE: WHAT TO LOOK FOR
To help turn the tide on this crisis, it’s important for parents and work supervisors to be able to spot a chronic or even just a casual masturbator in their midst. Maternal wisdom has long stated that oversleeping, locked doors, avoiding eye contact, messy beds, fear of clean underwear, long steamy showers and a pungent bleach-like odor on one’s bedsheets are all red flags of masturbation invasion. One trick passed on to me is that you can press your nose to a young man’s mattress, inhale deeply and (irregardless of the smell) announce, “That smells like semen.” If the boy’s face turns red and he runs from the room, the evidence is clear. …

Then, continuing her exam, she crouched before him, grasped his cock between her thumbs and fingertips with both hands, and began palpating it along its entire length. Until then, Ben had been priding himself on not getting an erection, but this attractive doctors warm fingertips probing and squeezing his cock proved too erotic, and soon his organ was jutting out straight with an almost full erection.
Blushing tomato red, Ben whispered, “God, Im sorry if I . . .”
Dr. Carmichael quickly interrupted him, “Thats alright, Mr. Hardy. I understand. Its a fairly natural reaction. Dont worry about it.”
Glancing over at Julie and Aimee, now covering their faces to conceal their smiles, Ben added, “But, its so embarrassing in front of strange women.”
Turning her head around to glance at the women, Dr. Carmichael began grinning herself. “Well, girls will be girls I suppose.”
