    One important insight that Jonathan brought up is that we get distracted by the neuroscience of addiction. The story of porn is not just dopamine because the neurochemistry is serving a deeper purpose. We are not "moist machines," we are embodied spirits. So, for example, the mother-child attachment is not just the story of oxytocin, but rather the oxytocin is a mechanism for establishing the bond of nurturance and self-sacrifice. Porn (and any other compulsive problem) serves a function beyond the primitive reward systems of the brain. Great podcast!

#369: Changing the Way We Talk About Porn (Because Women Struggle Too)
“I had one woman say, ‘I struggle with masturbation.’ And she just started crying.  And then she said, ‘I’ve never said that word out loud.’” In this Java with Juli, Joy Skarka recalls her experiences walking with women who struggle with porn, and shares from her own story of addiction to freedom. Despite rising numbers of women using porn and erotica, we still tend to refer to it as a "guy thing." Juli, Joy, and Jonathan Daugherty sit down for a conversation about creating safe places for women to come forward and ask for help. Grab your Java and join us!
