CK2:7 - Pornography and Sex Addiction

Harry SchaumburgThis week’s episode of The Connected Kingdom finds us in coversation with Harry Schaumburg, a man who has dedicated his life and ministry to helping people recover from sex addiction and addiction to pornography. In this conversation we seek to ask him very practical questions about issues that are on many people’s minds.

Here is a breakdown (including time stamps) of some of the topics we cover and the questions we ask:

2:55 - How widespread is this problem?

4:30 - What’s the real issue here? What’s the heart issue?

8:48 - Should every wife suspect her husband and be suspicious that he is looking at pornography?

13:12 - How important is open communication about the sexual relationship within marriage?

15:41 - How can we protect our children?

24:30 - Here we quickly go through a list of very practical questions and answers.

  • What does a wife do if she discovers that her husband is looking at pornography?
  • What does a husband need to know about how pornography may affect his wife and family?
  • Does pornography tend to escalate over time?
  • When and how do you know you’re cured?
  • Can you offer a quick critique of Every Man’s Battle?
  • When does a person need to seek out help from his local church and when should he seek out help from a professional counselor?

Harry is the author of Undefiled and False Intimacy. You can learn about his counseling ministry at StoneGateResources.org.
