Pornography as a Feminist Issue ft. Patty Breen

Did you know that porn plays a role in at least HALF of divorces? Or that the average age people are first exposed to porn is 11?! Pornography is truly attempting to destroy families, culture, and healthy sexual behavior. That’s why the work of today’s guest, Patty Breen of Whispered in the Dark, is SO important. After realizing her husband had a sex and pornography addiction, their failed attempts at healing led Patty to pursue an annulment. Today on the show, she’s teaching us what we should know if we discover our significant other has a porn habit, what questions we NEED to be asking them, and what to do if you’re a woman who struggles with porn (which we both agree is never talked about). We also geek out over a shared love of Shauna Niequist. Enjoy!
