Pornography and Cybersex

It can begin with something seemingly harmless: airbrushed photos in a magazine or a click on the Web. Soon you €™re desiring more graphic material and falling more often. Pornography, a closet addiction, grabs you when you €™re weak and holds you in its clutches. Planting seeds of alienation, it attacks and destroys relationships and robs you of self-respect. Others become objects or, worse, simply pleasure-giving machines. Lost in a fantasy world, porn becomes your focus and your drive. Is it possible to break free from this bondage?
