Claire: Activist & Former Compulsive Porn Consumer

Think porn is just a “guy” problem? Think again. This week’s conversation is with Claire, a former compulsive porn consumer and anti-porn activist. Claire stumbled across porn at a young age and what started as a natural curiosity to sexuality turned into a compulsive behavior to watch more, more often, and a more hardcore version. It wasn’t until she was in high school, when her dad brought home some information he learned from a live presentation by Fight the New Drug, that she realized she struggled with pornography. Even then, she kept her compulsion a secret. She now describes how she is “grateful” for her parents catching her when she was sixteen, and perhaps even more so for their reaction. Listen to Claire and podcast host Garrett Jonsson swap stories about their individual struggles, and how Claire has found her way from feeling shame about her struggles to freedom in her story of recovery. If you or a loved one is struggling with pornography, we encourage you to check out our friends at Fortify, an online researched-based recovery platform that has helped tens of thousands of users overcome pornography.
