Customer Reviews

Gave me the feels.

That story about Jorge and Magda is really touching.

Awful

This was terrible. Once again, the media renders sex addiction either a perversion or a punchline. What's with the pumping disco beat under Liam's narration? Is he supposed to be in a nightclub watching strippers or something? This podcast is a classic trivialization of a serious disease that has turned men and women into emotional cripples, ruined marriages and endangered lives. If you think I'm exaggerating, have a look at http://yourbrainonporn.com. And what are the trite questions about? Does the interlocutor not understand addiction? Does she not understand that acting out,whether it's drinking, taking drugs, eating, gambling or watching porn isn't about the activity itself, or really even about anything connected to the activity; it's about getting a rush, which is aimed at filling a void, soothing and comforting oneself. The deeper, more relevant question is, why does Liam act out; what is driving him to fill that void. I pity Liam that he has to go to AA meetings where people hoot and holler about porn addiction. So much for empathy and having compassion for the addict that still suffers. So much for not shaming your program brothers, and I bet there were plenty of men in that circle suffering silently in the same way as Liam, but too afraid of being shamed to admit they have the same issue. So much for the 12th step. But I'm glad he found SAA. Admitting you're powerless over such a strong compulsion is the first step. I hope he has a good CSAT therapist who can help him. I wish him well.

Enlightening

Liam’s story was one mirrored by the movie Don Jon. It focuses not so much on the issue of sex, but the emotional disconnection that the internet allows for. Fascinating piece with a truly personal narrative.
