The Porn Problem

Pornography is an industry as old as time. Obscene material has historically remained in the shadowy, depraved underbelly of urban centers. It wasn’t until the 1950’s, with the institution of the Roth test, and later, the Miller test, that pornography became easily available to anyone in the United States. These movements to promote obscenity among the public were led by the same Bolshevik pornographers who were responsible for the complete sexual depravity that contributed to the fall of Weimar Germany. From the “nudie mags” of the 60’s and 70’s, to “porn on demand” that became popular with the advent of the internet, porn addiction has now become a multi-generational malady.

Porn and Dixie

In 2016, Pornhub released its annual report on porn statistics. Of the top 10 states for use of their site, eight states were part of Dixie: Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. There is also almost no discernible difference in porn use between Christian and non-Christian males. According to a study conducted by Proven Men Ministries, 64% of Christian men in the United States admit to viewing pornography at least once a month. The same study placed daily porn users at nearly 30%. Despite these numbers, 44% of men believe they should watch less pornography, with 13% admitting to full on porn addiction.

Your Brain (and Life) On Porn

Be a better man, stop using porn.

We all know the effects of porn use. Pornography gives us an unrealistic image of the relationship dynamic between men and women. Porn, coupled with masturbation, takes the sexual act and changes it from a mutual, loving, and procreative act reserved for marriage into a selfish and disgusting transaction devoid of anything but hedonistic self-service. As a single male, porn use destroys your drive to meet women and start a family of your own. If you’re married, porn use can, and will, negatively affect your sex drive and desire for your wife. I asked the ladies of the Helicopter Mom podcast (hosted here on Identity Dixie) to give me their views on pornography and the men who use it.

“It feels like betrayal, literally a mild form of cheating. It would make me very insecure. Why is my husband looking outside the marriage for sexual stimulation? Is our sex not good enough? Am I too fat? Too ugly? Is he not attracted to me anymore? Lust and sexual attraction are to be kept within the marriage; gratifying oneself through the sexual stimulation of another woman is unacceptable.”

“Use of pornography shows that the man has unrealistic sexual expectations and that he cannot be trusted to keep his lust within the marriage. It shows that he has low time preference and opens the door for all other kinds of degenerate sexual behavior. Porn is a Jewish tool of degeneracy to increase promiscuity and decrease white birth rates. Why would you be complicit in undermining your own people”

“Every woman in a porn video is someone’s daughter. If you wouldn’t want your own daughter being objectified like that, why are you complicit in the objectification of another man’s daughter? A husband that watches pornography is a man that isn’t invested in his marriage. A healthy marriage does not seek sexual gratification from outside.”

You’ve Got to Quit

This is where I’m going to be brutally honest. I’ve been addicted to pornography for 15 years. I’ve also been porn free for 5 years. My porn addiction started when a friend in middle school stole some of his dad’s Playboys and brought them to school. At the height of my addiction, I would view pornography for 3-6 hours at a time, 4 or more nights a week. Sometimes, I was masturbating as many as 4 times a day. I was depressed and consumed alcohol in excess. I had no sexual interest in my beautiful wife, who was almost begging for my attention. I became lazy in my marriage, nearly destroying it.

When you view pornography, you irreparably damage your brain and soul. Besides the physical effects, pornography use also destroys your relationship with God and your family. It truly is a sickness that impacts us on a physical and spiritual level.

How to Quit

I don’t want to just berate you about porn use. That would be completely unproductive. There are many tools and resources available to those who really desire to end their dependence on pornography. Here’s how I did it:

  • Admit it: You don’t have to shout from the roof tops that you are addicted to porn (unless you want to). Just tell someone. I told my wife (even though she already knew) and 2 of my best friends (who I later found out had the same issues).
  • Babysit yourself: You know your triggers. If a glance of boob will set you off on a 6-hour porn binge, you might want to avoid watching Game of Thrones. Stay off the computer after a certain hour. Install accountability software to monitor your web use (I use Covenant Eyes).
  • Get accountability partners: Find a friend or two who will keep on you, but not belittle you when you slip up. My group is the two friends that I mentioned earlier. Our friendship has grown to include discussion of many things, not just keeping pure from pornography. If you’re having trouble finding accountability partners, just send me an email at TradSoutherner14@protonmail.com and I will be more than happy to pray for you and be your accountability.

Seek God: Prayer and regular church attendance will do wonders, not just for your porn problem, but for your spiritual wellbeing in general. Your pastor should also offer spiritual direction when it comes to issues of the flesh.

  2. I totally disagree with this post. I always speak the truth from my heart and my mind and restricting porn to adults is another example of many that lowers us all to the lowest common denominator because of the abuse of a few. I am a 68 year old father/grandfather and of course I am glad my daughter and granddaughter are not in the porn industry. But adult women should be allowed to follow any endeavor they wish to in life. It is their choice and no one should obstruct any woman from their chosen field. It is 2017 and most prohibitions are long gone. I have never been a porn addict but have enjoyed porn occasionally in my life and to those wives who are bothered should consider choosing and sharing with their partner. I watched porn videos with my wife from time to time and we found it an additional stimulus to our normal, healthy sex life. We never cheated on each other and had a healthy home. I believe everyone has to accept society constantly evolving over time and no one is forced to watch porn. Thank you.

  3. To write this article of this nature took not only honesty but bravery. Furthermore when one looks a little deeper and asks the question, “why would he even write such an article?”. There is only logical answer- to help others. Irrespective of organization or genre, Alt-Right or Southern Nationalist, etc,,,, this is just one more example of why the best people I’ve met in my lifetime are on the far-right.
