“XXX Church” helps young people beat pornography in the midst of quarantine

Millions worldwide are trapped at home during this global pandemic. To make advantage of the time, many are looking for a good book to read, others are catching up on the large amount of streaming TV shows or simply looking for any other way to pass the time or get a little distracted in the midst of all the worry and fear.

With pornography just a click away and free time at home during this global isolation, the temptation to resort to something comfortable, to calm our fears with brief and selfish satisfaction, is very easy.

The non-profit organization “XXX Church”, dedicated to helping people fight pornography addiction, is intervening to help.

“We want to make sure people know they’re not alone, because often when you’re worried or scared, when you don’t know what the future holds, you want to isolate yourself and find out for yourself,” said Brittni De La Mora, a former porn star who now runs “XXX Church”.

50% discount in all workshops for those who need help with addiction

In response to the social distancing orders implemented to combat the spread of the new coronavirus, “XXX Church” has made a 50% discount in all its workshops and has opened its phone lines and emails to anyone who needs support while in quarantine at home.

This initiative comes as a result of the world’s largest pornography site offering “free premium access” to its illicit content database during this time of social quarantine.

Pornhub has announced for Italy its premium service for free during the month of March, “no credit cards, just click and see”, according to The Next Web.

The porn company claims that a portion of the profits will be donated to local hospitals, says The Next Web.

Certainly, there is no shortage of paranoia, fear, sadness and loneliness at this time, and all those things can be triggers for people who have struggled with a pornography addiction.

De La Mora explained that “often, when you have high levels of anxiety, it’s because there’s something in your life that doesn’t give up. So whether it’s those scary thoughts, those worrying thoughts, you have to remind yourself, ‘I’m not in control. God is in control and He’s a good God. So, whatever I have for my life, it will work forever”.

God is not in quarantine

The leader of “XXX Church” said that it is essential to focus on worship, prayer and Scripture, “because when you attract God’s presence, you are attracting the God of comfort, you are attracting the God of peace, you are attracting the God of love.

And although we are socially distancing ourselves from one another, following the guidelines to not gather in groups of more than 10 people, it is important not to distance ourselves spiritually from God.

He also encouraged people to lean on technology, using it to hold each other accountable while we stay physically apart.

“Get on FaceTime, call your friends, do whatever you have to do to stay upbeat, so you can keep in touch,” he said. “We are a social detachment but not a spiritual detachment.”
