In today's screen-saturated world, too many people are learning to objectify other humans before they have a fighting chance to understand how relationships work. This is even more true when those screens portray the unrealistic version of sexuality that pornography peddles. Longing for strong, equal life partnerships, many women are seeking practical advice on how to keep pornography's lies from invading their relationships. Pumpkins at Midnight: A Woman's Guide to Love, Dating, and Marriage in the Age of Porn gives women an empowering and panic-free approach to a topic that may otherwise feel overwhelming: talking about and confronting pornography as a team.
This research-based book teaches readers a revolutionary approach to addressing pornography. Rather than relying on magical thinking that a years-long porn habit will just disappear, readers learn the exact steps to have a structured, compassionate conversation about pornography. They also gain confidence in the power of emphasizing honesty and accountability over behavior management, which helps couples build mature and healthy relationships from the get-go. What's more, the authors teach five proven techniques to work as a team to overcome compulsive porn use.
