Publisher's Summary

Are you a Christian man looking to be free from your regular use of pornography? Shame and self-hatred are terrible motivators for transformation. There must be a better way to outgrow our unhealthy dependence on pornography.

Religious communities often fall short engaging pornography in a meaningful way, quality resources are scarce. We must strip away the sexuality of our porn use, face the complexity of our own sexual development and stories head-on. We must get beneath to what is driving our hunger to use women as objects of our pleasure, and learn how to honor not objectify.

This book is an in-depth collection of essays engaging our behaviors both conscious and unconscious involving pornography. May this be a rich resource in helping you or those you love know liberation. May you find this resource helpful in your continued fight for sexual health.

Incredibly well written and thought out.

I think every man should read this and most women. The author is honest and vulnerable with his own own story and struggle.

Make it through the 1st 15 minutes. Thank me later

Bauman's book starts in a nondescript fashion. At first it sounds like so many books that have gone before it. I actually started to yawn. But, I am glad I didn't stop. Once past those first 14 or so minutes, Bauman deals with the issue of porn in ways that men need to hear. He will deal with the neurobiology of it and the real costs of it. He provides no cut and dry solutions but asks the right questions to help people begin to wrestle with their addiction. It rises above other books on porn addiction to sit on a shelf by itself. It is worthy of being your next read.

A great read

The author provides a safe space for personal reflection through a brutally honest review of his own struggles with addiction and misogyny. This book is great for any man that is trying to better understand how porn has affected their relationship with women.

Excellent collections of thoughts

Great easy to digest Christian centred thoughts on porn and masturbation. Articulate, thorough and vulnerable.
