    The Secret Sexual Basement

    The Secret Sexual Basement

    When a man chooses to have a "secret sexual basement", he is abusing his partner. Period.







    Dr. Omar Minwalla, licensed psychologist and clinical sexologist from the Institute of Sexual Health, joins Anne on the free BTR podcast to take a deep dive into why sexual betrayal is a domestic abuse issue.







    Listen to the free BTR podcast and read the full transcript below for more.







    What Is "The Secret Sexual Basement"?







    A man has created a "Secret Sexual Basement" when he has a "deceptive, compartmentalized sexual or relational reality."







    Dr. Omar Minwalla describes this as an "integrity abuse disorder situation".







    Having a "Secret Sexual Basement" is Abuse







    When a man chooses to:







    * Manipulate* Lie to* Gaslight* Emotionally neglect and/or* Financially neglect







    his partner and family in order to keep his secret sexual basement intact, he is abusing them.







    Further, in order to have a secret sexual basement in the first place, there is a sense of sexual entitlement.







    Sexual Entitlement Is Abusive







    "The minute you have sexual entitlement, you're abusive."Dr. Omar Minwalla, the Institute for Sexual Health







    Even if a man is fully transparent about his sexual activities - thus having no "secret" sexual basement - if he feels entitled to sex, he is still abusive.

    Prioritize Your Safety Now







    At BTR, we understand how difficult it can be to accept that your partner's sexual betrayal is abuse - especially if you have been conditioned to believe that your partner is sexually addicted and needs your support to "heal".







    Anne's message to you is simple:







    "I would say to our community, what this means for you is in a practical way, is that this is not an 'in sickness and in health issue,' this is who they are. This is not that they're just having a bad day, or that they're troubled for a little while, but it's how they're going to act."Anne Blythe, founder of Betrayal Trauma Recovery







    Choose now to prioritize your safety rather than your partner's recovery. The Betrayal Trauma Recovery Group can give you the support you need as you begin your journey to recovery.

    How Does Infidelity Harm Victims?

    How Does Infidelity Harm Victims?

    If abusive men knew how deeply their actions affected victims, would they continue to abuse?







    Infidelity leaves lasting, painful trauma that can affect a victims life for years after the betrayal has occurred.







    Hillevi, a member of the Betrayal Trauma Recovery Group, joins Anne on the free BTR podcast to share her story - the sad truth that a partner's intimate betrayal causes long-lasting devastation to victims and children.







    Infidelity Causes Both Physical And Emotional Devastation







    "I healed physically, but I have not healed emotionally yet."Hillevi, member of the Betrayal Trauma Recovery community







    Many victims of intimate betrayal suffer both physically and emotionally from the betrayal. Physical issues may include:







    * Sexually transmitted infections and diseases* Pelvic and sexual pain* Trauma-induced illnesses and ailments* Sleep difficulties* Weight loss or weight gain* Autoimmune diseases







    The Emotional Effects of Betrayal Trauma







    Emotional issues due to the betrayal are sometimes harder to detect and treat. Women may experience:







    * Difficulty trusting others* Depression and/or anxiety* Self-loathing * Difficulty focusing* Constant fear* Anger, rage* Exhaustion* Lack of motivation* Deep, unrelenting sadness* Loneliness* Grief* Numbness







    While the effects of betrayal trauma may feel never-ending and daunting, victims can find healing.







    Can I Heal From My Partner's Betrayal?







    If you have experienced intimate betrayal, you may be feeling hopeless.







    For victims who were infected with STDs, are suffering from severe emotional symptoms, or continue to struggle after years of attempts at healing - the road to peace can feel impossible and overwhelming.







    However, healing is possible.







    With safety, self-care, and heaps of compassion, women can find healing after betrayal.







    BTR Is Here For You







    At BTR, we understand how devastating and life-altering intimate betrayal is - everything changes in that moment of discovery.







    The Betrayal Trauma Recovery Group offers women a safe space to process trauma, ask questions, and form compassionate relationships with other victims as they begin their journey to healing. Join today.

    Trauma Victims Deserve THIS Love

    Trauma Victims Deserve THIS Love

    Abusive, unfaithful men condition victims to believe that objectification is synonymous with love.







    When women are objectified, dehumanized, and abused they experience numerous symptoms on the trauma spectrum. It's essential for trauma victims to understand that they deserve love - selfless, respectful, healthy love.







    Hillevi, a valued member of the BTR community, rejoins Anne on the free BTR podcast to share her perspective on real love - the kind of love that victims deserve. Listen to the free BTR podcast and read the full transcript below for more.







    Trauma Victims Deserve Selfless Love In Intimate Relationships







    When victims are repeatedly devalued and discarded by abusive men, they may begin to wonder what kind of love they deserve - or what kind of love is available to them - outside of the abusive relationship.







    Victims can set a standard, or boundary, in their lives that they only accept intimate partners who offer selfless, kind, and healthy love. Boundaries may include internalized beliefs like this:







    * I only choose partners who honor my boundaries and requests* I only choose partners who respectfully listen to my safety needs and respond with loving acceptance* I only choose partners who contribute to the safety and peace of my life







    "Philia": Trauma Victims Deserve The Love Of Safe Friendships







    Tragically, many betrayal and abuse victims feel isolated after experiencing signifiant betrayals in friendship and family relationships.







    Too many victims have tried to share their stories, only to be dismissed, minimized, disbelieved, or ignored by those that they considered friends.







    Victims deserve the love of safe friendships - they deserve the validation and compassion of a supportive community that understands and values them.







    It can feel daunting to victims to seek out safe friendships - especially in the aftermath of betrayal. The Betrayal Trauma Recovery community is a safe place for victims to make connections and begin to find strength after isolation. Join the BTR support group today and find the community you need.

    Trauma Victims Deserve The Safety To Love Themselves Deeply







    The dynamics of an abusive relationship make it nearly impossible for a victim to find the safety to develop a loving relationship with herself. Abusers condition victims to put the abuser at the center of their lives - distracting victims from self-care, support, and living an empowered life.







    Victims deserve the safety to love themselves deeply; they can begin this process by:







    * Setting boundaries that clear out individuals and situations that distract them from being able to focus on themselves and their children.* Prioritizing nutrition, hydration, and sleep.* Seeking out safe support.* Choosing to spend time on activities that they enjoy.







    BTR is Here For You







    At BTR we know how confusing it can be to begin to accept that you deserve healthy love - especially after enduring betrayal and abuse.







    You can begin this journey today. We believe in you.

    The Truth About Spiritual Abuse

    The Truth About Spiritual Abuse

    Spiritual abuse is prolific among women of faith, yet it is one of the most difficult forms of abuse to detect.







    Hillevi, an incredibly insightful member of the Betrayal Trauma Recovery community, joins Anne on the free BTR podcast to share her story and shed light on the truth about spiritual abuse. Listen to the free BTR podcast and read the full transcript below for more.







    The Truth About Spiritual Abuse







    Spiritual abuse makes victims question reality in regard to their own relationship with their Higher Power.







    Abusive partners, clergy, and faith communities as a whole can be spiritually abusive.







    In Hillevi's story, she experienced the entire spectrum of spiritual abuse as her ex-husband controlled her, her faith community shunned her, and therapists using 12-step materials ultimately failed her.







    Often, spiritual abuse is viewed as overly religious parents imposing strict religious regimens on their children - but spiritual abuse is a widespread domestic abuse issue, affecting intimate partners.







    Have You Experienced Spiritual Abuse?







    You may have experienced spiritual abuse without even realizing it. Spiritual abuse can be subtle and so ingrained into the fabric of a toxic faith community, that many victims experience spiritual abuse without realizing that it's happening. Here are some common, "subtle" forms of spiritual abuse:







    * Faith communities "shunning" a victim and/or her children. This may include complete isolation or just less contact or friendliness than normal. * Clergy shaming, blaming, humiliating, and/or giving harmful counsel to a victim.* Members of faith communities, including clergy, sharing private information about a victim without permission to do so.* Abusive partners, clergy, and other faith community members using scripture and other religious teachings to control victims.* Abusive partners, clergy, and other faith community members compelling victims to "confess sins" as a method to control and humiliate the victim.* Clergy blaming the woman for sexual misconduct between a man and a woman while not holding the man accountable.







    BTR Is Here For You







    At BTR, we understand the pain of spiritual abuse.







    When spiritually abusive partners relentlessly control victims -







    When faith communities shun traumatized women -







    When clergy betray broken-hearted porn widows -







    The trauma is severe.







    You need support.







    The Betrayal Trauma Recovery Group is here for you. With sessions every single day in every single time zone, you can find the support that you need when you need it. Join today and begin your journey to healing.

    PornHub Is Simply Abuse Videos

    PornHub Is Simply Abuse Videos

    Trigger warning: pornography, sexual violence.







    When Laila Mickelwait, founder and CEO of the Justice Defense Fund, began questioning the legality of PornHub's content, she quickly learned that when it comes right down to it, PornHub is simply abuse videos.







    At BTR, we take the firm stance that pornography is abusive to everyone involved. PornHub is a gateway, catalyst, and enabler to some of the most graphic, insidious, and violent sexual abuse on the internet.







    Read the full transcript below and listen to the BTR podcast for more.







    What Is "PornHub"?







    "As of December, PornHub was the largest and most popular porn site in the world. In 2020 they reported 47 billion visits to the site. That's 130 million visits per day. In 2019, they had 6.8 million videos uploaded to that one site. It would take you 169 years to watch the content uploaded to PornHub in one year." Laila Mickelwait, Founder and CEO of the Justice Defense Fund and founder of the Global Trafficking Hub Movements









    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOyeyycxblA









    Here's How PornHub Harms Women







    Laila Mickelwait woke up late one night with her baby, and couldn't stop wondering how so many despicable videos could be on PornHub. Videos that include:







    * Rape* Violence* Coercion* Underage vicims* Unconscious victims







    She quickly learned that all someone needs to upload a video onto PornHub is an email address.







    PornHub harms victims every single day by enabling abusers to post filmed abuse.







    You Can Help Make Change







    Stopping the porn industry in its tracks may feel daunting, but changes are happening.







    You can help today. Sign the petition here and let your voice be heard.







    PornHub has ruined too many lives - it's time to hold this industry accountable.

    Laila Mickelwait is the founder and CEO of the Justice Defense Fund and the founder of the global trafficking hub movements supported by millions around the world. She has been combating the injustice of sex trafficking for over a decade and is a leading expert in the field. Welcome, Laila.







    Laila: Thanks for having me.







    "Pornography Intersects With Sex Trafficking"







    Anne: Our audience is well aware of the harms of pornography on families and also how pornography intersects with sex trafficking. Let's talk about the work that you are doing to bring justice to survivors of sex trafficking and child sex abuse. What got you started in this field?







    Laila: You know I've been doing this work for over 15 years. I don't have a very dramatic story of how I ended up focusing on this area. I grew up in a home where my father was very focused on human rights issues. He grew up in the Middle East in the midst of w...

MUST MUST LISTEN

I would have given anything for this podcast 12 years ago when going through my divorce. My then husband was a owner of sex offender homes and a therpaist himself. All I knew was, I was being abused. After a three year divorce I found out multiple affairs(women who worked for him), porn use. I also found that he has recorded me and stalked me to gain “evidence” that I was unfit. I could not find anybody who could help me. I finally found a Therpaist who called it for what it was. It literally saved my life. I finally had clarity and names and descriptions of his behavior. This podcast is invaluable!!!! It is freedom from the bands that have been wrapped around you through your “marriage”. It will get you out of the trees, lift the fog and set you in a place where you can finally understand the crazy you are living with or through. After ten years of therapy and a new marriage I listen to these when I need a touch up or when I have a triggering event. Thank you thank you! These podcasts will release so many women from emotional prisons they are living in! Funny thing is my ex has a podcast too! Uses his therapy and even his wife, who was one of his affairs to talk about how to get through divorces. They both don’t mention the adultery as the cause of both of their divorces. Luckily I have this podcast and all the education I have learned and I know it is just part of the pattern of their lives. I am remarried and my mind is blown away everyday what marriage really should be. Keep up the great work. Women you are enough and the sun will shine again! TRUST THIS PODCAST! This is a safe place for you!

Great Perspective

As a man who has battled with porn off and on for 16 years, I truly appreciate the perspectives I hear in these episodes. I’m about 2 and a half years free from porn now. My wife and I are thriving in our marriage because I finally mustered the courage to be truthful with her. It was definitely a long healing process. When I first started getting free I became very vocal with my journey on social media. I’ve had countless betrayed wives/partners reach out to me asking for help. I tried my best to help them and encourage them. I’m glad I have this podcast to refer them too now!
Thanks for all that you do, you are truly transforming lives!💪🏼🔥❤️

Incredibly Thought Provoking

Majority of podcasts regarding abuse are centered on physical abuse, these are of course necessary and appreciated but emotional and psychological abuse podcasts are few. I appreciate that this podcast is so honest and the content is so incredibly thoughtful and thought provoking.
