Editorial Reviews


"Any traditional, trauma-driven male sex or porn addict will easily find himself in the chapters of this enlightening look at how the inner child impacts sexual compulsivity. This is an excellent and necessary examination of the 'why' of sex and porn addiction, helpful primarily to men in sexual recovery who've established initial sobriety and need deeper, longer-term work to heal and remain sober."
Robert Weiss Ph.D., LCSW, author of 
Sex Addiction 101Prodependence,and other books

"Going Deeper is about seeing your unwanted sexual behavior as a clarion call to heal the underlying heartaches in your story. A seasoned clinician, Eddie Capparucci has learned that self-destructive behaviors are correlated to the emotional pain and trauma that continues to haunt the inner child. Rather than developing strategies and techniques to manage your behavior, you are invited to something better: to connect with and strengthen the child within you." 
Jay Stringer, Psychotherapist and author of Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing

"Too often, when dealing with sexual addictions in men, we remain focused on the symptoms of the acting out behaviors rather than peeling back these external layers to uncover the wounded inner child within.Eddie Capparucci has done a masterful job of exposing the key emotional triggers that lie at the root of most men's sexual addictions. With grace and clarity, Going Deeper will help men understand and respond to these triggers in practical, redemptive ways. I highly recommend this book to both the men who struggle with sexually addictive strongholds and the people who love and care for them."
Jonathan Daugherty, Founder & President of Be Broken Ministries

Eddie Capparucci has hit the nail on the head with this book. He goes directly to the core issues of why people seek comfort from sex addictions and pornography. By describing the nine reasons why men abuse sex, he stresses the importance of healing the Inner Child whose legitimate,unmet needs to create chaos and addiction in adult life. This is a valuable and practical read on an issue that has reached epidemic proportions with the advent of the internet."
 Esly Regina Carvalho, Ph.D., Clinical Director,Trauma Clinic do Brasil; author of 
Healing the Folks Who Live Inside

"Eddie Capparucci is a steady guide in the rocky terrain of navigating sexual addiction and the examining the foundations of its origins. What a fabulous resource for folks to begin to look deeply at how their story shapes their sexuality. Thank you,Eddie, for providing this map and showing us the way toward liberation and healing."
Andrew J. Bauman, author of 
The Psychology of Porn 

From the Author

Thanks for your interest in this book. If you're struggling with a sexual or pornography addiction, or dealing with chronic masturbation, I truly believe the solution to managing your disorder can be found here. 
The road to recovery from this addiction goes through your childhood and I have seen that play out constantly with my clients. I enjoyed writing this book and identifying the 9 children who impact sex/porn addiction because I know it is going to bring freedom to many men and women who have tried numerous times to defeat their addiction. 
Be sure to check out the website associated with the book.
A gift for whatever they need
