It is a staggering number— each year, the U-S porn industry makes $14 billion — and more money than the entire NFL. And as those profits rise, it’s leading to leading to a public health problem that most people don’t want to acknowledge— sex addiction.

Action News discovered more local churches are offering counseling for porn addicts.
KEPR talked to one couple who found healing from a secret addiction.

“Every waking minute – that’s all you think about,” described Jim.

This man is recovering from a porn addiction – and asked us to shield his identity. We’ll call him Jim.

“I tried to stop myself,” explained Jim.

For years Jim kept his porn addiction from everyone— including the people closest to him.Coming out to his wife was no easy task.

“The fear of being discovered and going behind her back. I kept it a secret for a very long time,” said Jim.

“Julie” and “Jim” restored their marriage – by way of faith and intensive counseling.

They are the exception.

Divorce lawyers say 50% of their cases involve a partner addicted to porn.

“It’s a problem! It destroys good sex in marriage,” emphasized Julie.
