Let’s first see a theoretical story as an example for the many similar real and true stories I frequently encounter in my ministry:
A couple, while they were dating, they kept on putting themselves in a very tempting environment. Their relationship didn’t start that way. Both of them had clear boundaries when it comes to sexual purity and they communicated that clearly but they let one compromise sneak in to their relationship.

Falling in love is a precious experience set aside only to human beings. Animals don’t have any clue about falling in love since all they are expected to do is when they have the urge to have sex; they do it anywhere, with anyone, whenever they want to. That is one of the significant differences between animals and humans, humans who are created in the image of God.

It was a very gradual process for me to come in contact with pornography. I was a very sexually curious kid long before porn.
Since the age of 10 or so, I used to have sexual talks with older friends and other guys. But I discovered about masturbation by myself and I used to do it alone or with a friend around the age of 12-13.

The most depressing, frustrating and disappointing reason to marry is to have sex. Do you know why? Well, let me give one analogy to make my point clear:
Let’s assume that a married couple has sexual intimacy three times a week. (I’m not suggesting that having sex three times a week is the norm or anything. It can be a norm for some and for some, three times a week may feel like a fasting season).

One thing that captures my attention whenever I see or think of weeds is this: They come from the ground by themselves. Nobody needs to plant them. The soil just gives off weeds if nobody cares for the field.

One of the two most pivotal moments of my teen years occurred when I was in elementary school. I was twelve years old. In the middle of our recess time, one of my friends who was a boy, came running towards me, away from his friends. He wanted to show it to me but one of his friends was fighting to take it from him. I didn’t know what the magazine was all about but I wanted to see it. So, I joined the fight to get the magazine and I took it from his hand and randomly flipped the pages.
