Pornograpy and sex-related sites make up nearly 60 percent of daily web traffic. For some of us, it's going on in our very own basements or in the den after the family goes to bed. Over twenty million Americans spend a good deal of their waking hours looking at pornography. And they won't stop, because they can't stop. At least not on their own. They are addicted.
Porn Nation captivates readers with the true story of Michael Leahy, a sex addict who only came to terms with his problem after losing his marriage and children. But it's also the story of the rest of us. It's the story of America, our porn nation. How is it affecting us? How is it changing the way we see ourselves and others? And what can be done about it?

“The growing prevalence of sexual images, innuendo and objectification is a constant threat to my sexual sobriety. Song lyrics, music videos, reality TV shows, sitcoms, commercials, print ads, even the covers of magazines at my local supermarket checkout stand dot the landscape of my life like land mines waiting to explode underneath my feet should I choose to ponder them for too long.
But even as I talk with today’s youth and college students, the real target of this growing industry with an insatiable appetite for profits, this unprecedented level of saturation comes as no surprise to them. The most common response I get when asking them if they’re aware of their juxtaposition to all of the titillating content around them: “Sure, we know, we’re soaking in it!” When asked how it’s affecting them, most can only shrug their shoulders. Like the proverbial frog enjoying a swim in the boiling pot sitting on a stove, all we really know is it’s a good bit warmer in here than it used to be.”
Welcome to Porn Nation.
It’s a $100B a year industry worldwide. Even bigger when you consider the fact that porn is now the norm in our mainstream media. But have you ever stopped to think about why, when it comes to porn, we just can’t seem to get enough? And are we certain this “cheap form of harmless entertainment” isn’t changing the way we see ourselves and act towards others in relationships?
What you feed grows, and what you starve dies.
Enter Michael Leahy, a guy who spent over 30 years as a recreational user of pornography. That is until he discovered what many experts refer to as “the crack cocaine of sexual addiction”—Internet porn. What happened next would change everything, not just for Michael and his family but for all of us living in this Porn Nation.
