Think porn is just a “guy” problem? Think again. This week’s conversation is with Claire, a former compulsive porn consumer and anti-porn activist. Claire stumbled across porn at a young age and what started as a natural curiosity to sexuality turned into a compulsive behavior to watch more, more often, and a more hardcore version. It wasn’t until she was in high school, when her dad brought home some information he learned from a live presentation by Fight the New Drug, that she realized she struggled with pornography. Even then, she kept her compulsion a secret. She now describes how she is “grateful” for her parents catching her when she was sixteen, and perhaps even more so for their reaction. Listen to Claire and podcast host Garrett Jonsson swap stories about their individual struggles, and how Claire has found her way from feeling shame about her struggles to freedom in her story of recovery. If you or a loved one is struggling with pornography, we encourage you to check out our friends at Fortify, an online researched-based recovery platform that has helped tens of thousands of users overcome pornography.Click here to access the resources discussed in this episode.To learn more about the harms of pornography on consumers, relationships, and its larger societal impacts, visit FTND.org.To support this podcast, click here or text CONSIDER to 43506.Thank you for listening, as you go about your day we invite you to consider before consuming.

Carmel and Lynae are two twin sisters and Fighters from the U.S. state of Wisconsin. Their journey of getting involved with Fight the New Drug began almost 4 years ago, when they saw a Facebook post from a friend in a red “Porn Kills Love” tee. What started as a mutual interest in our posts on the social network grew into an active following of our blog and other social platforms for both Lynae and Carmel. They made huge waves in their Wisconsin community of La Crosse after a local university paid thousands of dollars to a porn performer to give a talk to students about sex education and porn, intended to help the campus celebrate their Free Speech Week. In response, Lynae and Carmel posted on Facebook wearing their “Porn Kills Love” tees with fellow Fighter friends and talked about how porn harms the consumer, relationships, and society in general. The attention the post received and the wider conversations it sparked were unexpected, but amazing. Hear Carmel and Lynae describe their experiences in spreading awareness of the harms of pornography with podcast host Garrett Jonsson.We are grateful for these two incredible Fighters and their efforts to start a conversation on porn’s harms in their community.

Never wanting to hurt her again, Eli has now vowed to make it his life’s priority to never again see porn.

Consider all of the things you take into account every day to help keep yourself, your loved ones, and your community happy, healthy, and hopeful. Now consider this: There is an ever-growing body of research demonstrating significant negative impacts, for yourself and the ones you love, in the consumption of pornography.

This isn’t about moral arguments, it’s about considering the facts. So consider it. Look both ways, check your blind spots, and consider before consuming.
