Whether or not porn is a problem in your life, due to its insanely easy access, I believe it is imperative that everyone has accountability software to protect them specifically from porn. Here are five scenarios where you should have accountability software.

You have a secret porn addiction
This is the easy one, of course. We all would like to believe we have the willpower to quit anything at any time, but the reality is that the brain is too powerful and once it gets stuck in a rut, it will fight really hard to stay in that rut because it hardly has to work, it just runs like autopilot, thus saving more energy and time for doing other things. So, don’t get tricked into thinking that you can cut your secret porn addiction out of your life without the help of someone else.

You had a porn addiction (secret or otherwise) in the past
Again, I’m cherry-picking the easy ones to begin with. One of the reasons an alcoholic has difficulty quitting their addiction is that alcohol is everywhere in our society. Guess what, porn is much more accessible than alcohol. A recovering porn addict MUST have some type of accountability software installed on every electronic device they have access to.

Porn is the most easily accessed tool of destruction ever.

You’re young
It seems that most people get hooked on porn in their early teens when their sexual curiosity is raging. However, just because you’ve made it past that stage, doesn’t mean you’re home free, porn is still everywhere you turn on the web, and having the protection in place, especially if you’re leaving home for the first time, is vital.

You’re in a relationship
Yes, I think every single person in a relationship should have accountability software. I am a big promoter of honesty in relationships, and I think accountability is a good tool that encourages that. The only people that look at accountability software as “spying” are people that are very likely trying to hide something. Accountability is how grown-ups act. We have accountability in our jobs and in our interaction with society, so why not in our relationships?

You’ve felt tempted
If you’ve ever looked at porn , whether or not it hooked you then , or felt like looking at it, it’d be a good idea to nip that in the bud and get an accountability partner. For whatever reason, there are people that look at porn occasionally and don’t believe they have anything to worry about or they believe it is natural and normal to do so. I promise you that it is not normal to look at porn, not even once. It’s damaging to your brain, your relationships, your attitude, your self esteem, and to women everywhere.

Porn is a destructive monster.
