Porn addiction is a problem that keeps many people bound including some Christians. The church of God is usually in denial about such “Taboo topics” and we turn a blind eye as though people are not struggling and marriages broken because of this big problem. It took decades for the world to believe the science behind the reasoning that smoking cigarettes is very harmful and can kill, just as we learning and seeing the same denial in the world today about the harmful nature of porn addiction.

Did you know that in the last couple of years studies have shown an increase in sexual problems among young males. Whilst the numbers vary, a 2007 study of the American Journal of Medicine showed that this affects more than 18 million men in the United States over the age of 20. One of the factors has been attributed to the widespread exposure to internet porn.

Did you know Porn can Change and Rewire your Brain?

The Florida House has passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health risk because it incities “deviant, problematic or dangerous sexual behavior” among users, drawing praise from Christian and anti-sexual-exploitation groups.

Earlier this week, the state’s House of Representatives passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health risk and calling for education, research, and policy changes to protect Florida citizens from such material, according to the Associated Press.

The sponsor of HB 157, Republican Rep. Ross Spano, who is running for attorney general, argued that pornography poses a number of risks, including an increased demand for prostitution.

During a hearing last month before the House’s Health & Human Services Committee, Spano said that research has “found a correlation between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, difficulty forming and maintaining intimate relationships, unhealthy brain development and cognitive function, and deviant, problematic or dangerous sexual behaviour.”

Children and teens are the most “at-risk” groups when it comes to pornography, the Florida resolution states. It posits that the Internet is exposing children to pornography at an alarming rate, which could lead to low self-esteem, an eating disorder, and a desire to engage in dangerous sexual behaviour.

  90. I’m the co-founder of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to broaden my wholesale side of company. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain give me some advice 🙂 I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anyone could recommend a reputable web-site where I can buy CBD Shops Business Marketing Data I am presently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
