In the first of two episodes, we ask the question "is pornography harmful?" This week focusses on the effect upon users of pornography.
Peter Watts is from Living Waters, a Christian ministry helping those affected by sexual issues. He argues that pornography is a form of false intimacy which negatively rewires the brain and damages relationships.
Steve Miller is an atheist with a background in psychology. He says that pornography in the context of consenting adults is not harmful and the church is too hung up on issues of sexuality.
TC Ryan, author of "Ashamed No More" joins the conversation. A former pastor, his secret addiction to porn brought an end to his ministry.
