Mary Derkson lets us in on some of the struggles women face while addicted to an issue that culture mostly deems a male problem.

Show Notes

Welcome to episode #6! In this episode, Mary Derkson gives us an inside look on what it's like to be a woman hooked on porn when culture still thinks it's an issue just for men.

Here is a brief summary of the episode.

33% of porn searches on Google are made by women
Women can get hooked on pornography in the same way that men can. Porn entices us and feeds us lies so that we keep looking it up, forming an addiction and an increased level over time. 

It's hard to quit if you're not desperate
Mary had her rock bottom moment that changed everything. She had made attempts at quitting porn before, but her heart wasn't fully there. It was the morning after her rock bottom moment that she confessed her struggle with 10 friends. They showed her love, but pushed her to deal with her addiction as well.

It's a lot easier on a new relationship to be able to truthfully talk about porn being a past struggle, rather than a current one. It gives you confidence that you can be open, it gives your partner confidence in who they're dating, and you feel better in your soul all-around, which leads to happier relationships with those in your life.

You are not the only person dealing with this
Know that you are not alone, whether you are a man or a woman. Many other women have secret porn addictions as well. Be careful on deciding who you are going to tell because they need to be mature enough to handle the news and love you back, but also hold you to a high standard. It is so important to get this out into the open.
