Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

“The growing prevalence of sexual images, innuendo and objectification is a constant threat to my sexual sobriety. Song lyrics, music videos, reality TV shows, sitcoms, commercials, print ads, even the covers of magazines at my local supermarket checkout stand dot the landscape of my life like land mines waiting to explode underneath my feet should I choose to ponder them for too long.

But even as I talk with today’s youth and college students, the real target of this growing industry with an insatiable appetite for profits, this unprecedented level of saturation comes as no surprise to them. The most common response I get when asking them if they’re aware of their juxtaposition to all of the titillating content around them: “Sure, we know, we’re soaking in it!” When asked how it’s affecting them, most can only shrug their shoulders. Like the proverbial frog enjoying a swim in the boiling pot sitting on a stove, all we really know is it’s a good bit warmer in here than it used to be.”

—Michael Leahy

From the Back Cover

Welcome to Porn Nation.

It’s a $100B a year industry worldwide. Even bigger when you consider the fact that porn is now the norm in our mainstream media. But have you ever stopped to think about why, when it comes to porn, we just can’t seem to get enough? And are we certain this “cheap form of harmless entertainment” isn’t changing the way we see ourselves and act towards others in relationships?

What you feed grows, and what you starve dies.

Enter Michael Leahy, a guy who spent over 30 years as a recreational user of pornography. That is until he discovered what many experts refer to as “the crack cocaine of sexual addiction”—Internet porn. What happened next would change everything, not just for Michael and his family but for all of us living in this Porn Nation.

Incredible! I just finished reading Porn Nation. Michael Leahy did an awesome job. The book is well written ... it flows great, he is honest and vulnerable ... yet he doesn't mince words ... he tells it like it is.

Porn Nation is the story of one man's battle against pornography and the tremendous toll that it took on him, his wife and his children. He lost everything - his marriage, his job, time with his kids, his friends ... everything. Porn Nation lets the reader know the truth about how pornography slowly but progressively destroys ones values and ones relationships. Leahy reveals how pornography distorts the mind so that women become "porn with skin on" ... killing any chance for true love and intimacy.

The book exposes the many myths and lies about pornography (like porn doesn't hurt anyone!). Leahy explains how porn, especially in the electronic age of Internet and Cell Phones, is easily available to everyone - especially kids ... starting in grade school!

Also, woven throughout his book is what I would call "an anatomy of an affair". Pathological lying, the emotional impact on his wife, his wanting to have both his wife and his "affair partner" at the same time; how he started blaming his wife for the problems in the marriage as a way of dealing with his guilt. Leahy provides a viewpoint of an affair rarely seen ... the viewpoint of the person who was having the affair. This book is a "must read" for those who are dealing or have dealt with an unfaithful spouse.

This book can have an impact on a wide range of people. Parents need to read this book to see how prevalent that viewing porn is by kids of all ages. Older teenagers need to read this book to see how destructive that porn can be. College students will clearly see how porn fuels the desire for multiple sex partners and how it kills any chance of a meaningful, intimate relationship with another person.

Read this book.

As the wife of a recovering Sex Addict I found this to be one of the most recent books (it includes more recent data than many others) about the emerging problem with internet pornography use and it's link to sex addiction... An incredibly fast read (I read it in a day) it kept my interest and offered some interesting facts. It was more entertaining than anything though. After reading many books on this subject in the past few weeks I recommend "Don't Call it Love" by Patrick Carnes for a more in depth look into the problem of sex addiction and how to overcome it.

I need ask you only one question, Do You Want to Get Well? Leahy says,"In every person's life there are defining moments, times when the entire course and direction of a person's life can change instantly. These are critical junctures, forks in the road where one's destiny lies in a solitary decision"(Leahy, Michael). Join the fight against America's #1 addiction porn and we can overcome this evil!!!

I have read the early release version of this book, and it blew me away. Leahy is a good writer that captures the readers attention with the use of realistic language and humor. In the book, he invites the reader to consider the detrimental effects of pornography in people's lives. Leahy courageously shares the story of how pornography, and the sexual culture of America, ruined his family. Also, he goes on to discuss the overall trends of American sexuality, and how it has been affected by sex-saturated media, namely pornography. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the effects that pornography can have on his/her life, and it will shed light on the danger that lies in the porn consumption. Please take the time to read this eye opening book.

If you want to make a difference in your way of life, be sure to purchase a book on how america is pushing sex on the population. It is not much of a struggle to stop watching porn if you manage to keep yourself busy and stay away from down time. Free time is the Devils time to work on you.

I rated this book highly because this book points out the destructive nature on porn. I believe that many of the marital problems in this country are related to pornography. Young men have an unrealistic objectified view of women. The title of the book raises eyebrows but the book is well worth the read. The pervasive incidious nature of porn in our society is not always appreciated.The harm caused by porn is not always obvious.

The author did an excellent job in writing this book. It gives a first-hand account of the author's addiction, shows how it destroyed his life, and how he conquered his addiction (no easy task). I commend Mr. Leahy for writing this book and recommend the book to anyone who may or may not have issues with sexual addiction.
