Think pornography consumption is just a “guy” problem? Meet Emma, a 19-year-old cosmetology student who was just 11 when she was first exposed to pornography. By the time she was 12, she says she consumed it multiple times a day on the iPod Touch her parents gave her. Her uncontrollable porn habit was also accompanied by feelings of shame and worthlessness that came from being a young girl who was told people who consume porn aren’t worth dating. Listen to Emma talk to podcast host Garrett Jonsson about how she first was exposed to pornography, developed an addiction to it, and eventually broke free. You can watch Emma’s video at ftnd.org/emma.
