Your Church on Porn, Part V

Tonight was the first night of the porn series at church. Raging success.

We went over very basic stuff. The Coolidge Effect, dopamine, primitive brain, rational brain, etc.

There were 13 students there, which was a large group for that class. They participated and seemed quite interested and enthusiastic, for the most part. I guess receptive might be a better way to describe them.

We handed out notebooks at the beginning of class and got them to write down one anonymous question that they had about porn. To my surprise, the questions were incredible. They asked how porn affects social life, health, one asked for alternatives to porn. One even asked for strategies to overcome his porn watching. We let them keep the notebooks for note taking.

We also handed out a self assessment that was modified a little from a Christian based recovery website that Gary referred me to. I did not ask them to turn those in, they were for their own personal use.

All in all, I think we're off to a phenomenal start.

Again, any advice is welcomed. Teaching this stuff is foreign territory for me.

Fantastic

Guys so need this kind of support today. They need real answers, and to be reassured that they aren't freaks.

Sounds like you're doing really well.
