Pornography Addiction Revisited
A friend of mine and I were discussing my post on pornography addiction in the Orthodox community and weighing in on the prevalence of the problem in different communities – religious, non-religious, Jewish, Christian, etc. He said something that I thought was most thought-provoking, and I am sharing it here for the good of the masses. Would love to hear others’ responses to this:
