Today’s episode “Pornacopia: Fantasy Meets Reality” with our special guest Joshua Shea. Joshua Shea is an author, educator and speaker on the topic of pornography addiction. Shea was born and raised in Lewiston, Maine, and started working in journalism at 17 years old in 1993 for his hometown newspaper, The Sun Journal. Having caught the news bug, he worked his way up the ladder at various newspapers throughout New England as both a writer and editor along the way. In late 2009, he launched Lewiston Auburn Magazine, the first lifestyle magazine of its kind in central Maine. A little more than a year later, Shea helped create the Lewiston Auburn Film Festival, also the first of its kind in central Maine. Shortly thereafter, he captured a spot on the Auburn City Council, where he served for two years. His addictions got the better of him in late 2013/early 2014 and he made much needed changes to his life. Following intense rehabilitation, Shea has worked mainly as a ghostwriter for corporate clients. His first book, "The Addiction Nobody Will Talk About: How My Pornography Addiction Hurt People and Destroyed Relationships" was first released in January 2018, with an update in September 2019. His second book, co-written with Tony Overbay, LMFT, "He's a Porn Addict...Now What? An Expert and a Former Addict Answer Your Questions" was released in December 2019 to help the partners of pornography addicts. Shea's newest book "Porn and the Pandemic: How Three Months in 2020 Changed Everything" was released in July 2020.
Shea operates RecoveringPornAddict.com, where he provides information about pornography addiction. You may contact him through that website. Take a listen and enjoy.
