There seems to be a lot about lately in everyday media on sex addiction and the pervasive and deeply damaging nature of pornography in a digital age… Barry Taylor offers some thoughts, and points to an interesting article in the Guardian. This video – Why Married Women Cheat – on a NZ media lifestyle page on the web. And finally the boys at Nomad feature an interview with Prof. Gail Dines, Wheelock College in Boston, where she is Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies and Chair of the American Studies Department. Dines is the author of PornLand: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality and in the interview she discusses themes from her book. You’ll find the interview here.
And of course there’s the Spike Jonze movie Her which again raises interesting themes for reflection and discussion. Questions like: “What is Love?” “How do we truly and genuinely love another person?” “Why is there an epidemic of loneliness?” etc.
During the interview, Gail Dines references this site and recommends its resources. The people behind the site are Wendy and Larry Maltz, authors of The Porn Trap: The Essential Guide to Overcoming Problems Caused by Pornography.
