#12.1 | How To Overcome Sex Addiction and Why Pornography Can Be Unhealthy | Jonathan Bello

Is too much sex a bad thing? What have been some of the effects of pornography in us and some of our friend's lives? Why is the church so scared of discussing the meaning and relationship we have with sex and our bodies? What does sex education mean anymore and who is in charge of it's teaching? In part one of this episode, Jonathan and I discuss his sex and drug addiction and how it played a huge impact on his relationships with women in his young adult and formative years. We discuss the impact of pornography. The culture of clubbing. And how partying like a rockstar, dating apps and playing the "game" affected his relationship with sex and himself. Through his coming to Christianity, he feels like a changed man and has re-learned what it means to be a man and treat women and himself in healthy ways. I hope you enjoy our conversation about some of these insanely personal topics, our experiences and our "truths", and how we take a critical objective and subjective view of how the Church has failed in so many aspects of teaching young men and women about sex, drugs, and pornography.
