Fuel 698: PORN, Not Corn
IN TODAY’S FUEL….
POINT #1: Instagram Post Headline
- I made a post inside of the Instagram this morning about how Porn becomes the problem, not a solution.
- While taking my daughters to school, I checked in on the post while at a stoplight, which then brought an interesting conversation about porn with my 10 year old and eating corn with my 6 year old.
POINT #2: Corn is So Delicious to Eat
- My six year old, Ruby, is still not familiar with the word porn so her immediate reaction to the word was with something else that she knew and associated with, which was corn.
- For her, corn was delicious, while my older daughter Bailee and I were able to discuss on a different level the openness about sexuality not being a bad thing, but something special to bring further connection.
POINT #3: Porn is the Symptom, Not the Problem
- Porn was built out of the pain within men and women that were taught that talking about sex was taboo.
- So many people are trying to blame the porn industry as the problem, when the solution is found in openly talking about and regularly connecting with your sexual partner to meet the needs that are within all of us.
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
- Where in your Core 4 (body, being, balance and business) are you blaming the symptom when you need to be looking at the root cause?
CHALLENGE OF THE DAY:
- Write in your War Map (journal) or the http://app.warriorbook.com War Board where you’re destroying yourself by going after the symptom instead of the root cause. What is the cost? Why are you so afraid to take on the problem?
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“Porn is not the problem. People will argue with me about this, but in my world, it’s not the issue but the solution to the symptom for those that have been suppressed to talk about sex. It has become an epidemic within society as somewhere to go in an environment that has considered the conversation of sex to be taboo. The bigger problem is that porn was born out of a group of people that couldn’t talk about their sexuality. Men and women created porn, not only as the stars, but as consumers. Porn was built out of pain.”
