Pornography is often not discussed, it’s too deep, too personal, too dark. It is an after all that elusive promise in our sex-driven culture. Pornography is a liar, a deceiver with a promise of fun that quickly turns into slavery. It’s toil on relationships and our society is undeniable painful. I am so excited to announce Relationships Do Matter’s partnership with Covenant Eyes, one of the vision of "Relationships Do Matter" is to help, create, sustain healthy and wholesome relationships based on biblical principles, concepts as well as practical solutions and tips.
The facts are staggering, according to covenant eyes:
- More than 1 in 8 web searches today are for erotic content
- 67% of children admit to clearing their Internet history to hide their online activity
- 79% of accidental exposures to Internet porn among kids take place in the home
- 56% of divorce cases involve one party having an obsessive interest in online porn
- 29% of working adults accessed explicit websites on work computers
Pornography is BAD ?
It is not enough to assume pornography is bad, you should know what makes pornography really bad.
A pair of psychologists from the universities of Indiana and Alabama identified several key ways that porn warps the mind, including how it:
- decreases sexual satisfaction
- lowers one’s view of women
- desensitizes the viewer to sexual cruelty
- Download the free e-book Your Brain on Porn to learn more.
Why is Internet porn so alluring?
Psychologist Al Cooper says three factors play a role:
- It is accessible. There are literally millions of porn websites which can be accessed almost anywhere.
- It is affordable. Most people who view pornography only view the free material.
- It is anonymous. You can look at porn in the privacy of your home or office. No one has to know you are viewing it.
Like a three-legged stool, break one of the legs and the allure of pornography collapses.
Stop Temptation Before It Starts with Covenant Eyes
When someone you trust receives a report of the websites you visit, it changes how you use the Internet.
Covenant Eyes Internet Accountability tracks every site you visit, rates each one for its content using six age-based ratings, (such as T for Teen or M for Mature) and delivers a regular report to the friend you choose.
Features: Customizable reports
The reports are easy to read, and your partner can customize the report to only show ratings he or she cares about. For instance, your friend may not care about sites rated Teen, and may only want Highly Mature sites reported.
Covenant Eyes also rates and reports web searches, such those done in Google, Bing, and other search engines.
Reports also show the titles of videos watched on YouTube, Vimeo, Bing, and other videos sites.
