“We had porn when I was a kid, back in the 20th Century, and we didn’t have problems! Why the big fuss, today???”
Believe it or not, that is a quote from a man I talked to before one of my SEX, KIDS, & THE INTERNET Seminars. I don’t believe the gentleman is alone in that viewpoint, either.

In Fiddler on the Roof, they used “matchmakers” to find a spouse. Those still exist, but they are few and expensive (your mother and aunts do not count). So, what is a Christian Single to do? How are you going to meet someone that you might want to spend the rest of your life with?

Recently I was chatting with a friend who struggles with pornography addiction. He was telling me about how things had been going well for quite a while but that, for the last couple of weeks, it felt like he had just been bombarded with temptations.

How do you do that?

It is very handy (especially when traveling) but needs to be understood by parents who are trying to protect kids from online porn and other inappropriate materials.
Let’s take a look.
