17: CLAY OLSEN- FIGHTING THE NEW DRUG CALLED PORN
Clay Olsen is a man on a mission. The organization he cofounded and now leads, fightthenewdrug.org, is dedicated to educating young people of all ages understand on the nature of pornography addiction but also on the emotional and social harms occasioned by even “moderate” or “occasional” porn use.
FTND is not faith-based and doesn’t rely on religious principles to engage the phenomenon. It’s all about the science of how porn affects the brain and the quality of relationships. And it is filled with high-quality media of many different kinds.
In our interview, Clay shares many stories about the struggle toward recovery, including a heartbreaking personal anecdote about a nine-year-old girl who found hardcore porn online and ended up watching it nightly for months on end before her parents found out and intervened.
Parents: Get. A. Clue. The pornography industry never sleeps, is always on the prowl, and doesn’t negotiate with its hostages.
