What’s the Big Deal With Porn? | RELEVANT Magazine.

Just another thought on this topic: If you are involved with porn and you are also in a relationship, not only are you sinning, but you may also be hurting the one you love: when someone engages in porn while they are in a relationship, the other person in the said relationship may feel as though they are not satisfying the needs of their partner, and I don’t mean that on a sexual level, either.  I mean that self-esteem can become an issue.  The other partner may not feel beautiful or as appreciated.  They will begin to question why they are not good enough for you (though they are good enough), but they will think otherwise.  It can be really hurtful, and damaging to one’s self-esteem.  I say this from personal experience.  You may argue that self-esteem is a personal issue, but it is partly a result of how someone is treated.  If they are constantly belittled to think otherwise, they will start to believe its true.  I believe that pornography can drive a wedge between any relationship, but can also be taken away when we rely on God for change and strength.
