I am a mom of 3 boys and 1 girl. My son tried porn as a freshman in high school (now getting married), then found out my husband was watching as well. I was sexually abused as a child and felt great betrail when this came crashing into my life. My second son has also been into porn on the enternet, introduced to it in the locker rooms at school. My youngest boy a 7th grader has already had friends show him nude photos on their phones. My husband has given his life to Christ and has done an about face away from this temptation. We have started reading this book together as a family and I am amazed at it's reality. I pray that God will guide our study every night, and He has. The conversation and words no longer seem filthy, but we are able to talk about it openly. I feel God's hands in it all and I am very blessed to have this available to help our family. I recommend it to ALL! There is not a soul on this earth that shouldn't read this book. We are going to read "Every Young Girls battle" after this one.
I didn't do enough research on the book and gave it to my son who is 13. BIG, BIG mistake. He was not ready and due to the graphic nature of the book, actually learned how to masturbate because of the book. Completely worked against what I was trying to prepare him for, being sexually pure. I got rid of the book, its not in my home anymore. For someone older I think it would be fine. Wish I had read through it more before handing it over, huge mistake on my part. Now i get to deal with the consequences. I honestly don't understand the point of being so graphic with the stories. The same point can be made leaving that out. Very disappointed by that content in the book.
I was 21 when I first read this book. I was struggling with internet pornography for most of my life. This book helped shape me to the man I am now. It teaches a man to safe guard his eyes, heart, and mind. Staying away from sin by removing and staying away from the temptations that may lead us into it. A plethora of testimonies from guys just like me. Its focused on the single man, and very similar to Every Man's Battle, with the addition of a chapter on M*****bation. Although focused more on a married man, Every Man's Battle I felt packed more of a punch and I'd recommend that one more (although it doesn't hurt to read both, just more money). It is all worth every penny. He truly speaks from the heart.
