E14: THE PORN TRAP with author WENDY MALTZ

Just a generation ago, only a small minority of men would have been considered regular porn users. Today porn reaches an unprecedented number of people from all walks of life. And it reaches them 356 days a year, 24/7. In the United States alone, forty million people visit Internet porn sites at least once a month. Some visit for only a few minutes at a time, while others stay for hours on a regular basis.

A whopping 25% of all daily Internet search requests and 35% of all downloads are for pornography. There are more than 400 million pages of pornography on the Internet. As one man said, “You no longer have to go looking for porn, porn is looking for you!”

As you might expect, most regular porn users are male (75-85%). You may be shocked to learn that youth under the age of eighteen have become one of the largest consumer groups of porn.

So how do you know if using pornography is a healthy choice for you or not? Join author Wendy Maltz (The Porn Trap) and myself as we unpack this somewhat awkward but extremely relevant topic.

We discuss the pitfalls of pornography, how to know if it has become a problem, and what to do if you suspect pornography has become an unhealthy choice. This is one of our top episodes so far with a topic that men need to know more about and get the straight talk about.

Thank you listeners!
