Wired for Intimacy
How Porn Hijacks the Male Brain
We are hardwired for human intimacy and relationships, but in our pornified culture, pornography disrupts how men interact with women. Countless Christian men struggle with the addictive power of porn. All too often our responses, such as prayer and accountability groups, are of limited help. Neuroscientist and researcher William Struthers explains how pornography affects the male brain and what we can do about it. By better understanding the biological realities of our sexual development, we can cultivate healthier sexual perspectives and interpersonal relationships. Struthers exposes false assumptions and casts a vision for a redeemed masculinity, showing how our sexual longings can actually propel us toward sanctification and holiness in our bodies. With insights for men who struggle and those who care for them, this book offers hope for freedom and transformation.
