I came across this site via a news article, and I am so glad I did:  The Porn Effect (formerly known as Who Does it Hurt?)

This is a Catholic site that primarily seeks to help and support people (especially men) who are addicted to pornography or other immoral sexual behaviors.  However, it also discusses many other topics of sexual morality and the struggles that we all have in living out the great teachings of our Church, while surrounded by a very sexually-immoral society.  As such, there is plenty of good reading and discussion for everybody.

All of the contributors are Catholic laypeople (with the exception of one permanent deacon), and some of them have faced and struggled through some serious trials.  So these are folks who know first-hand what they are talking about.  They are writing from the front lines of the battlefield, so to speak.  They are not by-standers simply saying, “No, that’s wrong, stop it.”  Rather they testify by their own lives to to the life-giving, life-transforming powers of our Lord and His Church, and to the truth, beauty, and goodness of the Church’s teachings on sexuality.

While being very honest about the dangers, the evils, and the difficulties that we are up against, they also show forth all the good and blessed things we have to say “Yes” to, and to the hope and freedom we possess as children of God.

Go check it out!
