Relevant Statistics

  • 42.7% of Internet users view porn
  • 53% of Christian men consume pornography.
  • Breakdown of male/female visitors to pornography sites: 72% male & 28% female
  • 17% of all women struggle with pornography addiction.
  • 90% of 8-16-year-olds have viewed porn online (most while doing homework).

If you don’t struggle with porn personally, it’s almost certain that someone close to you does.

Ladies-Only Sessions

As you can see from the stats porn is not just a “guy problem.”  Many women struggle with it too.  That’s why ThePornEvent.com has more than 1/3 of its events designated for women online.  They will not only address women’s struggles with porn, but also how to support the men in their lives who are struggling with sexual addictions.

Got Kids?

If you have kids, no matter how old they are it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to protect your computers and talk to them about the dangers of porn.  I have 3 kids myself – an 8 year old, a 6 year old, and a 3 year old.  All 3 of them are already regularly using computers that are connected to the Internet.  I know I need to be proactive on this issue for their sake.

Expect a non-threatening environment featuring stories, helpful answers, and an open conversation with people who have traveled a similar path.  For more details go to ThePornEvent.com

With porn so big on the Internet, I think it’s awesome that the biggest church on the Internet, LifeChurch.tv is stepping up to take on this issue.

How big a concern do you think pornography is?

How prepared do you feel you are to battle porn, not just in your own life but in the lives of your spouse, your kids, your friends, and your church?

  1. hmmm, I have been thinking of trying to attend this. Should be able to since LifeChurch.tv seems to go live in realistic GMT+2 time (as apposed to NorthPoint.tv, pity). Anyway, when I see those statistics I think – Christians are only slightly more honest and in general most people are not.
    I'll be honest here – it is a problem for me, and it is not easy when the internet is full of it – throwing things up at you like a drug dealer blowing heroin in your face.

  2. The best answer to porn I've ever seen is mychainsaregone.org The only way is a "renewed heart and mind". The truth will make you free, and you will be free indeed.

  3. All too often, pornography addiction is a taboo topic for discussion. Yet, pornography addiction impacts many men and women. We cannot ignore its existence. The statistics cited above are staggering! KUDOS to LifeChurch.tv and XXXChurch.com bringing it to the surface and teaching on the effects of pornography through the Porn Event. ____To anyone struggling with addiction to pornography, let Jesus deliver you from its bondage. Tear down this stronghold and bind the devil in Jesus' name. Jesus is the Truth and He will set you free. Walk in victory!

    I can be quite Liberal when I need to be,
    But XXX-Church that's Disgusting.

    • Did you go to their website and see what they're doing to help people affected by or struggling with porn? XXXChurch is the leading Christian organization in the battle against porn.
