Porn and the Sacred Heart
Now that I’ve got your attention...
From the time I was introduced to hardcore porn when I was eleven, I had been counting on marital sex to eventually save me from my obsession. But Jesus had something else in mind.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m no prude and glad that, thanks to changes in society from flattering fashions to interest in nutrition and exercise, more people are healthier and more attractive for longer in their lives and having great (married, licit) sex. (Forty-year-olds don’t look old anymore, because they’re not! Deo gratias.) But this story is a powerful reminder that in God’s plan it’s not the be-all and end-all that advertising*, etc. in secular culture make it out to be.

From Cælum et terra.

*Not only does sex sell — what’s the hot model in the soft-sell advert to do with the quality of the car or mortgage being flogged? — but the perpetually aroused spend and consume more.
