In this short clip, Matt Fradd and Dr. Gerry Crete unpack sexual addiction and how vices like pornography create the illusion of connection, but are really just symptoms of an intimacy disorder.
This week on the podcast, we’re re-releasing what is potentially the all-time most popular podcast since the start of our ministry, Purity For Life. Sex addiction is devastating in a person’s life. And it has many consequences that can potentially spill over and affect the people closest to him or her. Our marriage almost ended before it even got started because of my addiction to pornography. But as you’ll hear in this episode, not only did our marriage go through great pain, ultimately it went through great healing because I (Frank) stopped hiding and sought help. Tracey & I pray, out of all of our podcasts to date, that this one will bless you and help you to find the same healing we did in our marriage.

No mainstream entity should profit from or facilitate sexual exploitation.
Unfortunately, many well-established brands, companies, and organizations in America do just that. Since 2013, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has published an annual Dirty Dozen List to name and shame the mainstream players in America that perpetuate sexual exploitation—whether that be through pornography, prostitution, sexual objectification, sexual violence and/or sex trafficking.
The Dirty Dozen List is an activism tool that gives back power to individuals who want a voice in the culture. People can participate by taking easy online actions, from sending emails to sharing social media messages.
In today’s world, corporations drive our culture. They influence how people communicate, how they dress, and what information they receive. When a company makes a positive change to stop promoting sexploitation, it has a ripple effect that influences countless lives.
The Dirty Dozen List has a track record of uniting thousands of individual actions and targeting them to create monumental changes, such as policy improvements at Google, Hilton Worldwide, Verizon, Walmart, and the Department of Defense (and more).

In this special episode of Pure Gold, we honor the life of Dr. Mark Laaser, one of the early pioneers in the field of sexual addiction & recovery. Dr. Laaser passed away early on the morning of September 27, 2019 after a long battle with myeloma cancer. His life & legacy is nothing short of amazing and while I didn’t know him personally, I did have the chance to interview him for the podcast in 2014. I share my thoughts of Dr. Laaser as well as the interview I did with him regarding his book, “Taking Every Thought Captive”.
Mark — we will miss you, but we thank God for your life and for the thousands of lives your ministry touched on this earth. Friends, enjoy the podcast.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “Game Of Thrones”, a popular TV show airing on HBO for the last several years. The series seems to be reaching it’s conclusion with a MASSIVE fan base to go along with it.
Let me be clear: I’ve never watched the show personally. Nor would I ever watch it. Why?
From the reviews I’ve read, GOT has some of the most hardcore, outrageous sexually explicit content on air today. For this reason alone I refuse to watch it. Why would I ever want to compromise character, integrity, morals, & convictions simply because of the “story” or “adventure” this show takes you through???
I really appreciatewhat spaker, blogger, and podcaster Matt Fradd has to say about this show in offering two reasons NOT to watch Game Of Thrones! Hope it’s encouraging to you too.
