    Accountability Audit for Sex & Porn Addicts: Jumpstart Your Accountability Program

    Accountability Audit for Sex & Porn Addicts: Jumpstart Your Accountability Program

    I recently hosted Chandler Rogers on our podcast, and you need to hear his story. Chandler personally overcame a struggle with compulsive pornography use and then used his experience to give back to others by creating a group-based recovery app called Relay for people wanting freedom from addictive sexual behavior. He built what he wished he had during his healing journey - tools to manage recovery goals, an SOS button to reach out when feeling triggered, and a system for accountability with peers, all in a private safe space.

    Listen to Chandler's story and how it led him to build the recovery app Relay:

    Sex Addiction and Extortion: A Rapidly Rising Crime

    Police warning people about an uptick in prostitution extortion scams. Police say scammers have been texting and calling victims who are sometimes sex addicts, accusing them of trying to hire prostitutes and demanding large sums of money from them. They say these scammers have been threatening that the “cartel” will kill the victims if they do not comply, and that in some cases people have been sent photographs of firearms and severed human body parts via text message.

    Shame 101 for Sex & Porn Addicts: Learn to LOVE Your Shame!!!!

    Shame 101 for Sex & Porn Addicts: Learn to LOVE Your Shame!!!!

    Stay tuned for Shame 101, an intimate and raw podcast, where world-recognized sex & porn addiction expert Craig Perra is going to demystify and legitimize shame, especially when it applies to sex & porn addicts.

    Listen as the Founder of The Mindful Habit System explains how shame is actually a good word. And YES, shame can help you if you learn how.

    Shame can tell us when we're getting in our own way or doing something hurtful to ourselves and others. People who are addicted to sex or porn (or both) all know about shame—and shame always seems to be urging us away from the things that are good for us: intimacy, honesty, respect for others' boundaries (and for our own).

    So what do we do with all this shame? How does it help us? Does it just make things worse?

    In this podcast episode, I introduce the idea of loving your shameful part and explain how to listen really well to your shame in order to use it as a compass guiding you toward more healthy and fulfilling choices in life.

I'm glad it exists

I turn to this and a few other podcasts to help deal with my problem and I'm glad they are around. But I will agree with another reviewer who said it can be hard to listen to. Every time she gets on a roll with something really interesting there's a part of me pre-cringing and waiting for his inevitable interruption (which often doesn't really add anything substantive to her point).
But, they are both passionate about what they are doing and come across very authentic.
Definitely worth a listen

My god, calm down

I listened for about five minutes, waiting for the discussion to begin. Instead I was ranted at, essentially, all the reasons I should listen to the podcast episode I was already listening to. Oof.

Podcast for men?

I was turned off immediately by the host speaking about men with addiction and their wives. Perhaps the immediate exclusion of women with addiction, or queer people in relationships is intentional as he is not an expert in these areas. I’m happy this podcast is helpful for some.
