Perspective on the buzz

Porn and erotica has never been easier to obtain, as widespread, or more culturally acceptable than it is today. But it is still largely seen as a male issue.

That lack of awareness needs to change before health and sexual wholeness can come to a rising generation of porn-addicted women. But do you know how to broach the issue with those you lead?

Start by listening to these three stories of women porn users, from Christianity Today's Her.meneutics blog. Says Trillia Newbell:

Women, you are not alone in this struggle with temptation to sexual sin. You aren't the only one ashamed of the sexually explicit material in your browser history or on your e-reader. For all who face these temptations, the power of the gospel enables you to say no to sin. Each of these women eventually confessed their sin to friends and received the grace available to them by the Holy Spirit to stop watching pornography.

Also, from Gifted for Leadership comes this first person story of ministry temptation that serves as a needed reminder that sexual temptation isn't limited to men: "Women Leaders are Tempted by Adultery"

Truth and grace are what we need when we encounter sexual sin in our lives or those of our church members. On the truth side, let's begin by killing the false assumption that porn is a man's problem.
