A helpful resource

I know, I know. Two posts in less than a week about my Mormon feminist group, but what can I say? I love this group...

This week, Exponent II came out with its latest issue (which is now free!) about an important subject, pornography addiction. For those who aren't LDS, the Church has been talking a lot about the accesibility of porn on the Internet and how that has led to problems with members of the Church becoming addicted to porn. My friend, Heather (an EXII associate editor and one of the best writers I know) spent years putting together this issue, getting experts, working with people who deal with this.

I was going to email this issue out to friends and family, but then, I thought, "Oooh, I don't want people to think I'm sending this to them because I think they have a problem with porn." You know, that would be a little tacky.

I read it cover-to-cover in a night. Whether you're LDS or not, addicted to porn or not, this compilation is eye-opening and heartbreaking.

This was a tremendous resource. Thanks for posting it. I've written a number of posts on my ministry's blog about the subject of Internet porn, especially its effects on women. You may be interested in reading the articles.
