It’s Time to Open up About That Sexual Struggle, Ma’am

When I was around 11 years old I came across a hidden stash of pornography hidden under a relative’s mattress. Almost immediately I began seeking out what I accidentally stumbled upon that day. This soon led to sexually addictive behavior including pornography and compulsive masturbation. Eventually the pornography and masturbation led to numerous multiple anonymous sexual encounters. Finally, after nearly 23 years of living with this secret, at the age of 34 I hit rock bottom.

Girls Can Do Anything Boys Can Do!

This week I had the privilege of speaking to a brand new telephone client.  She was a young lady of 20 years old.  As I do with new clients, I asked her if she had received any help previously for her sexual addiction.   She mentioned to me that she had received a few months’ worth of coaching assistance.  She proceeded to tell me the name of the organization and then added something like, “But it was really a guy’s organization.  But women struggle with this issue too!  Not just men.  Everything out there seems to be for men”.  Wow.  Sadly, she is more than correct.  However, thankfully that is changing and we have come a long way since I started my journey over 11 years ago.

From Bitter to Sweet

Ashamed, alone, damaged, perverted, twisted, abnormal, and did I mention alone? These are just a few of the negative emotions I had as a female who was sexually addicted.  For 23 years I struggled in secret with masturbation; then masturbation and porn; and eventually masturbation, porn and anonymous sexual encounters.  All of this while living a double life.  On week nights I would teach Bible Studies, minister to new believers, and was even a Sunday School teacher.  Was I a hypocrite?  Some would say yes.  Actually, I was just a believer that really loved Jesus, but was clueless about how to manage the addiction that I had become trapped in since I was 11 years old.

This ain't Mayberry

Parent's are always trying to protect their kids. This is why we often can hear them saying things such as, "Don't eat the dog's food", "Please stop pulling things out of the cat's litter box", "If you eat too much candy you will vomit", "Please stop putting peanut butter on your sister", "Take the toilet seat off of your head" and most importantly, "Wear clean underwear, because you never know when you might get into a car accident".
