Item Description...
Overview
Pornograpy and sex-related sites make up nearly 60 percent of daily web traffic. For some of us, it's going on in our very own basements or in the den after the family goes to bed. Over twenty million Americans spend a good deal of their waking hours looking at pornography. And they won't stop, because they can't stop. At least not on their own. They are addicted. Porn Nation captivates readers with the true story of Michael Leahy, a sex addict who only came to terms with his problem after losing his marriage and children. But it's also the story of the rest of us. It's the story of America- our porn nation. How is it affecting us? How is it changing the way we see ourselves and others? And what can be done about it?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of the most important books to read today!  Jan 24, 2010
PORN NATION by Michael Leahy is one of the most important books to read today! Unless you've been living under a rock, you're aware of the escalating problem of pornography addiction in our world today; and with increasing availability the problem will only get worse. Experts are calling pornography the crack cocaine of sexual addiction! Porn and sex-related sites make up nearly 60 percent of daily web traffic. More than 20 million Americans spend many waking hours looking at porn; it may be going on in your own home after the family goes to bed at night. Upwards of 30% of Christian women admit to the use of pornography and a shocking 50% of pastors say they struggle with porn!

This book is not just for people with sexual addiction but should be read by everyone! Women should read PORN NATION because they themselves may be teetering on the brink of sexual addiction or they may be married to a man like Michael Leahy who hid his addiction from his wife their entire marriage. Men should read PORN NATION because based on statistics today, there's a good chance they're in denial of their own addiction or be surprised to find they're married to a closet sex addict themselves. Every parent should read this book to be aware of the potential dangers their children face each day. Teens and college students alike should read PORN NATION it's likely they're being exposed to pornography on a regular basis and don't see the trap that's being set for them.

Michael Leahy does an excellent job telling the poignant story of his 30 year battle with pornography and the loss of his marriage and children because of his addiction. For those concerned about the sensitivity of the subject matter, you shouldn't be worried. The author is a Christian man and gets his points across without graphic details.

In PORN NATION Mr. Leahy covers all sides of the porn story. He speaks from the addict's perspective; how easy it is to get addicted to pornography and the difficulty getting free and staying free from it. Most importantly Leahy covers the big picture; the major problem we have in our nation today with the hyper-sexualized media, and the increasing availability of pornography especially to young children. And last but not least, he writes to the reader who may be an addict hiding in shame and denial. Leahy gives much needed words of encouragement to the addict who feels all alone and offers excellent resources to aid anyone seeking freedom from pornography's grasp.

As a recovering sex addict I highly recommend this book. In fact, I'll go a step further and tell you if you don't read PORN NATION there's a good chance you'll be ignorant to one of the worst epidemics this country has ever seen. With the sex addiction statistics as they are, even in the church, it's highly possible someone you know, maybe even you or a member of your own family struggle with this issue. There's so much shame linked to this particular addiction, especially for Christian women, that it's nearly impossible for them to reach out for help. If you read this book maybe you'll be able to spot specific behaviors and help them before pornography destroys their lives.
 
Touching  Dec 20, 2009
This was the first Kindle book that I have purchased. I read it through on my iPhone, which isn't the easiest of formats to read.
I couldn't put 'Porn Nation' down. It resonated with me on so many levels. I appreciate the frank discussion of the author's
experience, strength, and hope. I very emotional book. There isn't any pop psychology in it. Several constructive ideas for
practical actions to make progress in recovery.
 
If You Struggle with Porn, This is a Great Book to Read  Oct 18, 2009
More than half the book is the author's story - His early years with a father who was physically abusive, and his beginnings with porn, how it grew in his life, and how it became a large part of his work life (working in the computer industry made porn easy to acquire). After years of addiction, Michael describes that he then made the jump from porn to "porn with skin on" (as he calls it): an affair; which cost him his first marriage.

The second half of the book deals with Leahy's views on our culture, stats about how sexualized culture has become, and some of his thoughts on healing and how it happened for him, and how it can begin to take shape for the reader. For him, the process of healing was broken into 2 parts: Recovery/Healing and learning the principle of "What you feed grows, what you starve dies."

With the staggering statistics presented in the book, he makes a valid case that we are on the way, if not already, a "Porn Nation".

If you are concerned about the sexual nature of the book, not to worry, he is very sensitive to his audience, and speaks in a real way without being to graphic.

This book is an intense look at what happens in a man's life when he stumbles into porn, and the repercussions it can have. It also shows what happens when you humble yourself and use the pain and mistakes, broken hearts and bad decisions to help others who are in the same situation, but want a way out and are looking for a guide.
 
Telling it like it is  Aug 28, 2009
This is a great book for anyone who has had a partner addicted to Porn. It opened my eyes and gave me answers that I so needed. I wish there was more information on the Porn side but I felt it helped in any case.
 
A Psychosexual Guilt Complex Turned Into Censorship  Jul 20, 2009
The first part one should take from this book is the statement of the guilt he feels. This should not go unnoticed. It is an unhealthy view of human sexuality that one feels guilty watching people do a beautiful act to one another. He found himself angry at his wife, blaming her for his acts. This again comes not from the porn, but from his unwillingness to connect with another human being, maybe a fear of inadequacy--i.e. he was fat, not very handsome, and might not have been well endowed (I don't know about the last one). Though he tries to connect this with behavior of an addict, which blaming others is part of, being short with ones wife however for behavior that caused someone to act is more of a condition of guilt, like one would feel when having an affair--in fact he refers to porn as an affair.

I'm personally indifferent about porn, I use it occasionally when I feel lonely, my girlfriend's not around--I've used it occasionally when my girlfriend was around and wanted to do something kinky. I come to this book with a feeling of understanding for this man. I used to be a devout Christain, working in charities handing out bibles, debating Reverends on whether or not there would be a pre or post tribulation rapture (I believe a pre), and reading the bible a total of five times in a year, remembering thousands of verses. I remember thinking my porn watching, which was a lot when I was younger, was an addiction, and I felt shame for it, and told no one. I felt embarassment as well. I'd hear my friends talking about it, hear them go through the weird and awkward stuff they'd seen, and I'd shy away, embarassed to have looked at such stuff. I didn't look at women as objects, but I didn't know how to approach a woman, I felt inadequate. I was obese, I wasn't really smart, and I was shy.

Then I read a book, I know, I know, you've probably heard this story a dozen times. It wasn't the bible--I had read the bible and only found shame, embarassment, and fear in it. I read The Tropic of Cancer, and it was as if all my guilt was shown to be what it was, utter idiocy, a fraudlent fear from a conditioned response to what I percieved to be evil. When in fact, what I experienced, young men and older men had experienced for thousands of years. I felt liberated. I started exercising, I got in shape, I still watched porn, but I also started talking to girls, and taking them out on dates.

When a man says God is the answer to the removal of porn addiction, God is not the answer, no, God is not the answer at all. God is great, don't get me wrong. But liberation of oneself does not come from God, it comes from the realization that we are human beings, in all our glory and all our flaws, and that viewing sex for pleasure is not wrong, no more than reading about it and derviving pleasure is wrong, or having it before marriage with several young women is wrong. We are human beings, with a highly sexual nature due mostly to our superior intellect--our understanding of pleasure, allows us to search and dervive it from many activities.

This book is about a single person who believes his behavior is the norm, when in fact, his behavior is that of a man who had yet to come to terms with his humanity. He shunned humanity and wondered why he felt so inhumane. The bible is filled with pornographic references. Many religious leaders overlook this, but often, those who read it clearly know it. Even in the most holy of scriptures, there in lies the nature of sexuality defined plainly. And if you want to talk about objectifying women, there is no bigger text that objectifies women than the old testament, a man can leave his wives to another man. Solomon left his wives to David. They were taken--by God's order--to be married if you were to invade a country and kill the males (including babies) and the women who had laid with a man. If a woman is raped and unmarried, she must marry her rapist--actually, he must marry her, she's not considered.

And finally, censorship is never the answer. America must remain a free country and that includes unpopular speech. Self-control, self-acceptance, and the understanding of ones self-denial is the only answer for a succesful life--had he learned that, maybe he would've had a happier life, and a happier marriage.
