I don’t know if I really knew what to expect when I agreed to lead a blogging series on sex for The Idea Camp. But I know that anytime you get a bunch of bloggers together to talk with a single focus, the result is usually something pretty special.

This week was PORN WEEK, the first of the six-week series of discussions on various sex-related topics. The result was (I believe) nothing short of amazing!

Here’s a quick recap of the posts that we saw come in this week:

  • Infographic: Stats on Internet Pornography [ICSEX]
    Jesse Giglio helps us start the week by sharing some pretty overwhelming statistics on how widespread of an issue this really is.
  • Twilight and Porn (a.k.a. Unrealistic Expectations?)
    Carole Smith Turner challenges us to not soften the real impact (and damage) caused by porn by putting it and teen heartthrob movies on the same level.
  • My Story for Porn Week
    Cheryl Smith gets vulnerable and shares her story about how porn has affected her life, and how she found God’s redemption and grace in the midst of pain.
  • #ICSEX: Pornography
    Seiji Yamashita goes back to where an addiction to porn started for him, and what it took to wake him up to the reality of his addiction.
  • 10 things i learned from joey and chandler about porn [#ICSEX]
    Dan King (um… that’s me) shares a list of observations on the affects of porn as portrayed by a couple of guys who got it for free on one of America’s favorite TV shows.
  • Men and Sexual Addiction – Part VI
    Chris Goforth finishes a series that he was already working on with his list of resources related to porn addiction.
  • The Redeeming Quality of Pornography
    Kyle Reed learned something about sin and redemption through his struggles with porn and its anonymous nature.
  • Let’s Talk About Sex: Pornography
    Amber Haines has guest blogger Sarah Markley share her story. Sarah reveals the damage that pornography did when her and her new husband brought it into their bedroom to watch together.

Let’s keep this conversation going… Which of these posts impacted you the most? Why? What other perspectives on porn do you think are important to share/consider?

Coming up next: Sexual Abuse – Week beginning Sunday, July 25
It usually leaves invisible scars that never go away. And it can be root of other issues not only sexually, but relationally. This discussion will focus on not only the damage that is caused by sex abuse, but with special consideration of how to help those hurt by it with immediate and long-term healing. If you’re interested in participating in this conversation, then let us know in the comments or contact @bibledude on Twitter.
