Women and Porn By Lindsey Learn
For years I’ve heard the stereotype that pornography is only an issue for men. Church accountability groups and sermons on the dangers of pornography have long been directed at men, while it’s been assumed that women don’t deal with those types of issues.
But research is starting to show that pornography isn’t only a man’s problem...read the entire article to learn more about how women too face this issue.
Pornography is not just a man’s issue. Twenty-five percent of Christian women are addicted to pornography and sadly, 70% of these women will never confide in someone about their problems.
Recently there has been an explosion of ministries, churches, and individuals battling pornography’s destructive and tragic effects. Porn is highly addictive and requires plenty of tools to break its strangling hold. However, these ministries and tools are more accessible to men than women. Women turn to pornography for different reasons than men but once addicted feel the same alienation and shame. Women desperately need a place of confession, accountability, and healing separate from men.
In Dirty Girls Come Clean, Crystal Renaud, founder of Dirty Girls Ministries – whose own pornography addiction started at age 10 – provides steps to recovery uniquely tailored for the female addict. Beginning with surrender, moving to confession, embracing accountability, owning responsibility, to finally sharing with others, the reader will be taken on a journey that can guide her from a state of woundedness to one of healing.

The Candeo story is about hope. It’s about people finding recovery where they least expect it.
One founder struggled for decades to overcome addiction without success. Then a mentor came along who understood how to focus the brain on specific behaviors so that real change was possible.
Another was a clinician so swamped by his practice that he had to turn people away. The need was far greater than his ability to fill it. He began to wonder if it was possible to create a system that could give people everything they needed, requiring only occasional guidance from him.
Once these two solutions found each other, Candeo was born. For the first time a unique approach to neuroscience, affordable technology and traditional therapeutic techniques were combined to solve some of the most difficult problems faced by individuals and healthcare systems.

And – it’s about change. It’s about changing lives and models and paradigms. It’s about changing the quality of care. It’s about changing the world for generations to come.
