Have you ever found yourself caught up at some level by pornography and cybersex temptation? Or do you know of someone else who has this problem? Would you like to know more about Cybersex temptation so you can better combat the hold it can have? Consider the following questions:
• “Does the Internet attract and make sex addicts out of people who otherwise might not have been addicts?”
• “We tend to think of this as a male problem. Are women at risk, too?”
• “…Our culture abuses us sexually by bombarding us with unhealthy sexual images. As a recovering addict, how do you deal with that?”
•”What would you say to someone who knows he or she has a pornography problem?”
Above are just four of many questions that Jim Killam asked Dr. Mark Laaser (an expert in the field of Cybersex and its destructive pull). Jim interviewed Dr Laaser for an article titled “Cybersex Temptation,” which appeared in Marriage Partnership Magazine.
Pornography and Cybersex Temptation
The article also lists several sights that indicate you are “at risk for sex addiction.” And then it gives “warning signs your spouse may have a secret cybersex problem.” It then points out “what to do if you suspect you are a sex addict.”
We were able to, at one point, provide a link directly to this article. But more recently, it has been included in a free electronic booklet (which you can read on line) and/or download in its pdf form, courtesy of the Baptist Network. You will actually gain more important information by looking through this booklet than you would have by just reading the one article. We realize this is a lot to look through, but we believe the journey is SO worth the information you will gain. Temptation is a hard task master. You need to do what you can to overcome its effects.
You will find Dr Laaser’s article among many that are available within this resource. We highly recommend you read it by going to the link on the subject of:

A radio broadcast series was put together by the ministry of Family Life Today with Dennis Rainey. In this broadcast series Mike and Jody Cleveland were interviewed on the subject of “Setting Captives Free.”
Mike and Jody share his story of pornography addictions. It included cybersex temptations with chat rooms on the Internet resulting in affairs. There was deception going on over a 15-year period of time. Mike explains how it seemed like a harmless pastime. But it soon became an obsession so strong, only God could set him free.
