Porn Temptations: Christian Girl's Dirty Secret

"I am someone who struggles with porn, and I'm a female. How can I beat this struggle? There doesn't seem to be help for females struggling with porn. What should I do? I don't want to tell anyone because it's embarrassing, and people would judge me."

They write to us about their sin, their secrets and their shame. Here are their actual words: 

"I am someone who struggles with porn, and I'm a female. How can I beat this struggle? There doesn't seem to be help for females struggling with porn. What should I do? I don't want to tell anyone because it's embarrassing, and people would judge me."
"I am also a female who struggles with the temptations of porn ... I try to stay away from the temptations, but I always seem to go back to it. I feel guilty, and I want to be free from this sin. I feel sick about it."
"I became a Christian recently, but before that I struggled with porn and masturbating. I still struggle ... I have repented of it many times, told God I'm sorry and that I will do better, but I just can't stop! I'm at my wits end, and I can't tell my mom. Please give me some advice and pray for me!!!!!!!!"
Comments like these used to trickle in at a rate of one or two per month, but lately they've come in an avalanche. Every single day we hear from a young woman who is addicted to porn—and often porn's lustful sidekick, masturbation.
Why am I telling you this?
Because these girls are your daughters, your nieces and your neighbors. They are sitting beside you week after week in church, terrified that someone will find them out. They wear shame like a blanket. It covers them and tells them they must stay hidden, no one can know, no one will understand.
And because they do not tell, they are not free. James 5:16 gives us the anti-venom to the kind of sin that makes us sick:
The pull of porn is so strong that they cannot find victory on their own, and so they stay trapped in the cage of sin and shame.
I love those girls too much to leave them there. I'm determined to pry them out of the cage that porn creates, but I can't do it on my own. I need your help. I need you to talk to your daughters and neighbors and nieces about porn. No doubt, it's likely to be an awkward conversation, but the stakes are too high to keep avoiding it. And I need you to keep talking. Our culture offers plenty of "teachable moments" to talk about porn. Seize them!
Let's be True Women by taking a stand against the enemy in this area and fighting for those younger than us who have fallen into porn's painful pit.
