I received this e-mail from a woman who is involved with a porn addict. She wonders if anyone else has had a similar experience. Please offer her your support and advice. ~ JoAnn My story: I am 29 and I met the love of my life on the 17th July [...]
I discovered that my husband was a SA in Aug 09 and like all the others he cried and begged me to give him a chance.
I thank God for you and for your website! I am brand new to this entire experience and right now, I think I'm still in shock. I've inhaled almost every woman's story on this site to find answers to a problem I now know is Sex Addict.
She had told her grandma that he had gotten a tattoo out of the McDonalds box and had her sit on the couch and tried to get her to touch his penis.
My husband was arrested in a Craigslist sting operation when he corresponded with a “woman” who eventually claimed she was 14 years old, and “curious” about being with an older man.
When I first realized that my husband was a Sex Addict is when I found some pornography charged to my Cable bill. We had not been married long
The internet is a wonderful source of information and has served to educate many of us, both young and old. But, unfortunately, it is also a free and easy method for our children to access inappropriate sexually explicit material at a very young age.
After 17 ½ year into the marriage he told me of his sexual orientation. The 1st thing he said to me is “If I could change it I would”. Based on that, I agreed to stay and see what could be done. He agreed that there would be no further activity and he would leave no stone unturned in trying to sort out what had been done to him, the subsequent behavior and to see if his orientation could be changed or not.
About 9 months ago, I have started feeling he is keeping some secrets from me,,,,work trips extending to the weekends, spending days at a friend s house in Belgium that I have never heard of! When I finally got so frustrated and confronted him, he told me his dark secret…it was more than I could bear.
Concerning internet porn, the internet is a perfect drug delivery system because you are anonymous, aroused and have role models for these behaviors. I fear that the upcoming generation will include a large majority of individuals who cannot relate to each other on an intimate level and who will spend their entire lives seeking fantasy relationships that have no grounding in reality.
