Product description

Since the explosion of the Internet in recent years, the number of people addicted to pornography has skyrocketed. "The Porn Trap" is the first book to examine the full range of pornography-related problems, providing help for everyone from the recreational dabbler to the compulsive addict, as well as partners of addicts. In an authoritative, nonjudgmental style, sex, and relationship therapists Wendy and Larry Maltz combine an understanding of porn - its definition, its attractions and effects, its history, and the industry that creates it - with simple but effective healing strategies. "The Porn Trap" will help readers to: identify and evaluate the impact of porn, decide when it's time to quit using porn, stop using porn and never go back, rebuild self-esteem and restore personal integrity, heal a relationship harmed by porn use, and develop a thriving and satisfying sexual life without porn.

"An excellent, thoughtful, and hopeful guide providing effective help for those who struggle with our newest and most challenging mental health problem--pornography addiction." -- Patrick Carnes, Ph.D., author of Don't Call It Love and In the Shadows of the Net "Larry and Wendy have done a masterful job of defining the problem of porn and giving the reader a marvelous plethora of treatment options. This is a must read for anyone who cares about someone hurt by porn addiction. For those struggling themselves, this book is a lifesaver!" -- Dr. Ted Roberts, pastor, counselor, and author of Pure Desire "An extremely helpful and much needed resource for a very destructive addiction. The Porn Trap includes clear and practical guidance for healing the emptiness caused by porn. I highly recommend it." -- Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author of Getting the Love You Want and Receiving Love "This intelligent book brings a healing voice to an issue that too often divides and devastates partners-it goes way beyond 'just say no,' to offer heart-opening guidance that will help you explore new dimensions of sexual desire and intimacy." -- Gina Ogden, Ph.D., author of The Heart and Soul of Sex and The Return of Desire "With clarity, compassion, and understanding, Wendy and Larry Maltz help readers comprehend the magnitude of the problem and porn's highly addictive nature. Their vast knowledge of healing and regaining a healthy sexuality embedded in a true relationship, provides readers with a wise and helpful guide." -- Charlotte Sophia Kasl, Ph.D., author of Women, Sex, and Addiction and If the Buddha Dated "Groundbreaking. This is the best book on the market to help compulsive porn users and the people who love them to confront and change this destructive pattern." -- Barry McCarthy, Ph.D., author of Men's Sexual Health and Rekindling Desire
