Shame on Top of Shame: Why Pornography and Masturbation Are Not Just a Man’s Problem

Janet’s Admission

Janet sheepishly said to me, “I want to tell you something, but I don’t want to say it…” She sat on my counselor’s couch, held a pillow over her face, and just sat there. I gently prodded her for a few minutes, and then she came out with it: “I struggle with masturbation.”

Awkward as it was, I’m glad she was honest with me (Ephesians 5:8-14). She has struggled with masturbation for a long time, but hasn’t ever told anyone. It begs a question—why hold on to this secret?

Ephesians 5:8–14
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,

rise from the dead,

and Christ will shine on you.”
