"Dirty Little Secret" isn't bad. The author is passionately against porn, but not in a judgmental or holier-than-thou way. He and his cohorts set up booths at porn conventions to provide a way out for those who produce and act in adult movies. They also seek to help church leaders deal with their usage, since it has become almost epidemic in the pastoral community. That kind of "grace with teeth" is better than the legalistic and shame-based approach of most churches (when they aren't in denial, that is).
However, despite the author's good intentions, books like this one have a fatal flaw. They are big on showcasing porn's worst-case consequences, but short on providing solid ways of prevention and adequate solutions for addicts (or even dabblers). Like in war, no one gets into porn with the goal of becoming a casualty. Casual indulgers become blase after years of not even coming close to experiencing the hell of a raging porn addict. The more insidious consequences of dabbling, such as subtle effects on dating or marriage relations, should've merited more exploration. It seems that because porn is so easy to get (especially with the advent of the Internet), prevention has been abandoned in favor of focusing on treatment.Read more ›

Ok this book was not an easy read. It was stories of pornstars and their life outside of what you see on TV. Read morePublished on August 29, 2008 by J. Warren Benton
this was an interesting book, but it really only scratched the surface of the issue of porn. It's a quick, light read.Published on May 30, 2008 by L&CR
