- Mistakenly stumbled over a magazine/Internet site as a child or in her youth
- Experimented as an adult before or after marriage
- Watches racy shows such as Desperate Wives, soap operas, or other shows and movies with very pornographic undertones.
Furthermore, pornography is readily available on TV and on the computer; so one wrong click or change of the remote can change the course of your destiny for the worse.
Many times I have found myself glancing at a magazine, as I've stood in the grocery checkout line, when I see a headline which says, "Find out How Porn Can Strengthen Your Relationship!" While watching porn might make you feel more erotic, it ultimately causes you to focus on the sexual activity rather than pleasing your husband.
Intimacy involves sharing your heart, mind, body, and spirit with your husband. If anything, watching porn can destroy the intimacy you've built with your husband because you're no longer sharing yourself exclusively with your husband. But now you're sharing it with a fantasy that you've created based on what you've seen in the video or an image. In essence you're committing mental adultery.
Yes you are! In addition to hurting yourself by pulling away from God and hindering your relationship with Him, you're separating yourself from you husband. Why? Because you're constantly focusing on the pornography, the images you've seen, and the sounds you've heard. In fact, it could cause you to make unfair comparisons between your husband and the unrealistic men you see. And what happens if your children catch you watching porn? What happens if they get exposed to it and become addicted?
