Lust. Sex. Porn.

If those words made you squirm, you may not want to read ahead. Likewise, if you're of the prudish variety, because here I openly, albeit reluctantly, share with you my experience of, and thoughts on, pornography.

Reluctant because people can be jerks. Some people refuse to see the transformational work of Jesus in the lives of others, and sadly these are often the same people who preach it.

Reluctant because I have children who need not be shamed or shunned on my behalf.

And reluctant, well, because I'm a woman, and women don't struggle with porn....right?

The Internet was not an accessible thing when I was a teenager. It hadn't yet infiltrated every aspect of our daily lives.

Mobile phones weren't capable of sending or receiving texts, let alone photos and videos. In fact, back then, mobile phones were black bricks with aerials that required manual extension for each and every conversation.

I had no access to, nor any real knowledge of pornography, and so it was not a part my formative years.

I developed a curiosity toward porn when Jordan and I were a few years into our marriage.

We'd stopped going to church, our relationship with God was practically non-existent, and the circle of friends we were keeping saw porn as no big deal, just something 'everyone' does.

I knew pornography had been a big part of Jordan's life before we were together, and this knowledge made me irrationally angry and jealous. I felt as though I was missing out on something, and I really do hate to miss out.

I decided, in my great wisdom, that it would be a fabulous idea to introduce pornography into our marriage.
