This was a fascinating episode. I appreciate Scott’s changed/more healthy views of sexuality. However, I can’t imagine any orthodox mormon being ok with “integrating porn” into their marriage relationship. I’m in a mixed faith marriage with a low (very low) sex drive partner. It would be easier to end the marriage then to have this kind of conversation. So i would really love to know how Scott and Mitzi make it work, does he view porn often, does he always tell her when he does, do they view it together, or does their new found connectedness remove any need he has for porn?
Your comments make all the efforts worth it! So happy to hear that – breath on friend!]]>
I just got to the point where Kristy mentions a BYU conference about doubt and doubters that had some counter-productive messages. I don’t remember this conference, and am curious to see what was said. Do you have a link?]]>
Hi April – thank you for taking the time to write a very heart felt message. To be honest this particular issue was, in a way, the tip of the proverbial iceberg. I totally validate that the approach you’ve outlined above has been very helpful to you – at the same time however, I’ve come to accept that the same prescription did not work for me as I attempted it for 9 months or so. I’ve actually found peace/joy in accepting my answer and moving on.
I will say though that the goal of sharing this particular note was to give context to how empowering Saul & Katelyn’s reaction was.]]>
