Publisher's Summary

The 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.

Incredibly Eye Opening

The robust scientific references throughout make this book an incredible textbook-like resource, but with a fascinating story-like appeal.

Important book, listing porn's negative effects

If you are not familiar with the subject (the negative effects and addictivity of porn), this is a must read. However, the book does not tell a story, it is more like a list of all aspects of life and society affected by porn.

Bla, bla, bla ...

A bunch about nothing. Obviously written by some guy who was “shamed” by his wife for watching porn.

Hugely relevant and hugely illuminating

This audiobook is incredibly illuminating and really sets out the myths of porn. Its relevance to current Western society is obvious. It contains many truths which may be hard to swallow for some people.

I really enjoyed this audiobook and would recommend it to anyone, especially young men. The latter part of the audiobook sets out many studies pertaining to the nature of porn addiction and the like. This got a little tiresome, and this is why I rated the audiobook 4 rather than 5 stars (would have given 4.5 stars if possible!).
