Still Can't Find It

Shortly after I posted my last video on expectations within a relationship, my favorite comic strip, Doghouse Diaries, put out the following strip, which I think is a brilliant exposition of the whole can't-find-it-in-the-refrigerator phenomenon I mentioned there (and in an earlier post here).

Pornography Addiction

This is a serious subject, and one that is coming up increasingly in the Orthodox community.  A dorm counselor I spoke to who is working on this issue once gave me an estimate that 90% of his students are watching porn online - and he is not at any kind of remedial place for off-the-derech kids.  I spoke to Rabbi Dr. Twerski about the problem as well, and he lamented that he has seen frum people of the highest caliber become addicted to porn.  It is a truly worrisome issue. I have been developing a program to bring to Ortodox schools, but so far - unsurprisingly, and unfortunately - I have not found any that are willing to bring it in.
