STUDENTS, PROFESSORS AND CRISSY OUTLAW
We're an eclectic group who have seen it all and have decided to talk about it. We're ex porn addicts, ex porn stars, academics, activists, students, friends and parents.
Everyone has a porn story. So why isn’t everybody talking about it? Our team shares personal stories to help others.
Porn doesn’t exist in a vacuum. We discuss how internet porn use can cause addiction-related brain changes.
Our shame-free discussions are based on personal experience, neuroscience and community.
We discuss the pros and cons of high speed internet, smart phones, and the future of technology.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. – Edison
