Researchers concluded that there is a strong relationship between strong moral and religious convictions against porn and the perception that personal porn use is an “addiction.” In my opinion, the chief sources of the discrepancy are the conflicting definitions of addiction.
But these dating sites help challenge the stigma by bringing the information out into the open.
They allow users to filter by gender, age, and location; but they also have an extra menu where users can specify if they are living with herpes, HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, HIV, AIDS, syphilis and even thrush.
But when is the right time to bring up a sexually transmitted disease?Interestingly, 64% of Christian men say they view porn at least once a month, but a higher percentage (71%) of non-Christian report doing this.Why are Christian men more likely to feel the term “porn addiction” applies to them?On top of these cultural ambiguities, addiction language in Christian community is also shaped by sin language.A year ago I heard Ed Welch give a talk at a conference in Philadelphia entitled, “Addiction, Temptation, & Voluntary Slavery.” He spoke about how so often the “Big Book” used by AA members seems so much more alive to them than the words of the Bible.
