The Porn Myth Book CoverThe Porn Myth is a non-religious response to the commonly held belief that pornography is a harmless or even beneficial pastime. Author Matt Fradd draws on the experience of porn performers and users, and the expertise of neurologists, sociologists, and psychologists to demonstrate that pornography is destructive to individuals, relationships, and society. He provides insightful arguments, supported by the latest scientific research, to discredit the fanciful claims used to defend and promote pornography. This book explains the neurological reasons porn is addictive, helps individuals learn how to be free of porn, and offers real help to the parents and the spouses of porn users. Because recent research on pornography’s harmful effects on the brain validates the experiences of countless porn users, there is a growing wave of passionate individuals trying to change the pro-porn cultural norm-by inspiring others to pursue real love and to avoid its hollow counterfeit. Matt Fradd and this book are part of that movement, which is aiding the many men and women who are seeking a love untainted by warped perceptions of intimacy and rejecting the influence of porn in their lives.

The Book I Never Thought I Would Need

Pornography is the one topic I never thought I’d need to read about.  Although it was part of my own adolescence and young adulthood, I had assumed my working primarily with women and being ultra vigilant at home made pornography essentially a non-issue in my life.  I was wrong.  So wrong, that I jumped at the opportunity to review Matt Fradd’s new book, The Porn Myth: Exposing the Reality Behind the Fantasy of Pornography.  Matt’s new book appealed to both my desire to best dialog with the women I am blessed to minister to through Reconciled To You, (because porn is not just an issue concerning men) and also my desire to best guide my children as a mom.  After reading Matt’s thorough responses to myths and the resources for parents in Appendix, I feel better equipped to discuss pornography now in both my roles.

Some of the Myths that Most Surprised Me:

  • Swimsuit editions and men’s magazines are not porn.
  • Only Religious People Oppose Porn
  • Porn isn’t sex slavery.  The actors freely choose the lifestyle they lead.
  • I don’t pay for my porn, so I’m not contributing to the porn industry.
  • Women don’t struggle with porn.
  • Porn isn’t addictive.
  • Porn is only fantasy: it doesn’t affect our real lives.
