Porn carries a heavy price. Part of this price is the more you look at porn, the less sexual satisfaction you get. You get desensitized, and you go looking for something more exciting. You may start by looking at the JC Penny lingerie ads. But before too long those don’t do it for you anymore. And then you think, “Hey I’ve got internet.”
Next thing you know you’re browsing porn there. And the same thing happens. What once got you excited, no longer is as exciting to look at. So you check out dirtier and dirtier content. Many men and women have fallen prey to this. Some have gone so far as to look up illegal porn and have ruined their lives because of this.
Aside from this aspect of diminished sexual satisfaction, you’re desire for your spouse will go down to. It is not an if. It is going to happen. Before my wife found out about my porn habit, I noticed my desire for her would go down, the more I looked at porn.
One reason for this is, as men, we fixate on our sexual experiences to the point where one can get so far as to only climax under certain circumstances. If you’re looking at porn, your body will get used to the orgasm by yourself.
So how do you get past this? Admit you have a problem. Pray for deliverance. Take the necessary measures so that you are free of excuses to look at porn again. Matthew 5:29 says this:
“And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”
What Jesus is saying here is to cut out the things that you use as an excuse to fall to temptation. And when you have sex with your spouse, don’t think about any other woman but her. It will take some time to get back to how it should be in the bedroom with your wife. But when you honor God with your life, He will bless you in return.
