Yes, thanks Father. Not a porn addict here and never seen the real interest in it. I lust as much as the next guy but I just find porn a bit far fetched, at least what I have caught of it. They all look too good, it's too dramatic an all that. It make sex into something animal like rather than divine and human. Not to be blasphemous but sexual intercourse is a divine act, a continuation of God's creation. "Be fruitful and multiply." But not just the command to continue the act of creation, but the union of two people becoming one in the bed, the union of love. There is something spiritual to it. What porn has done has make into a mere act to please the body and the baser appetites. Sex becomes something similar to animals mating, the baser animals, too. Because the birds, consider they often keep one partner for life and there is a sort of love between them. Even the father looks after the nest in some species. But in other animals the sexual act is just that. In spiders, for example, the female even eats the male many times after mating. In other animals the male simply leaves or even devours the young. And even the mothers do this sometimes! But humans, made in the image of God, they unite in the bed in love, the have reason and understand what love and so it is more than just some instinct like with birds or some appetite like with cats, where the tomcat in the mating season will come back with many wounds after fighting for his mate and then leaving her to have kittens. Porn, heterosexual porn, especially if it does become an addiction like it does for some makes one just as vile to nature, sometimes worse than sodomites.
So yes, I suppose a little compassion is in need like Father says. After all he hears confessions and hears the deepest wounds upon the human soul. Like my friend who was molested as a child had a bit of a problem with porn. He turned to sodomy even but now God has given him a wife to marry. He marries this summer. Every soul and every brain works differently. I do think people use some sort of "addiction" as an excuse sometimes, but I think porn or even work can become an addiction. Some workaholics do it because they grew up poor and now want to prove themselves. Silly and foolish, but hey, people are stupid.
