Flee From Sexual Sin
To sum it up, I would without hesitation say that dealing with sexual lust is different than dealing with other types of sin.
With sexual sin, it is not recommended to stand there and fight the sin, but rather to flee from it.
Like it is written concerning Potiphar’s wife in Genesis 39:12 she caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me.” But he left his garment in her hand, and fled and got out of the house. (Joseph was wise enough not just to stay there to talk to reason with her attempt of seduction, and fight his feelings as a red-blooded man, but instead, it to have the wisdom to RUN, that applies to all sexual temptations outside of marriage). ~ Bill Greguska
Run Away From The Temptation!
Rather Than Fighting It With Your Self-Determination!
Praying ahead of time and having someone as an accountability partner to keep you on the straight and narrow are not an option, they are necessary.
When tempted, get out of the situation that you are in physically which will help you regain control of yourself with the Holy Spirits power.
Since men have a more significant battle with pornography than women, because our eyes are a source of sexual gratification, I would like to share some insight from an excellent book called “Every Man’s Battle.” On page 72 where it says. “If a woman’s blouse falls open, you can not say, “Hey, that is in my sightline, I get to have that.” No, you have to look away.
Otherwise, you’re a thief. You need to leave that valuable creation of God in the hands of God and her husband or her future husband. Bouncing your eyes off of that scantily dressed woman or merely fleeing the situation if possible are the two best solutions.
Focus on the Family
Yes, it is true that pornography has a long history that has gotten extremely popular especially since the internet, but even so, just because everyone is jumping off a bridge, does not make it right. Porn is not something that God has provided for us, but instead, it is something that Satan uses to steal, kill and destroy the lives of so many men and women in our society.
To talk with someone who cares and would like to help you, call Focus on the Family 1-800-A-FAMILY.

- Job 31:1 I have made a covenant with my eyes; How then could I gaze at a virgin?

- 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

Why Is Pornography Like A Barbed Fishing Hook?
Why are having controls so critical? First, the average age of a child’s first exposure to pornography is 11. So if that’s the average, some kids see it much earlier. And research is just beginning to give us the full, frightening picture of what porn does to a brain, and to life.
Much like substance abuse, it alters the mind, creating a need for a level of stimulation that healthy, marital sex life doesn’t always provide. It sets our children up to have a distorted view of sex and suffer from a desire that can’t be satisfied.
Why are so many moms and dads turn a blind eye to this problem? Is it because they don’t think it’s a problem? Is it because of their porn use? Maybe they feel hypocritical setting up boundaries for their kids that they can’t respect. If this is you, we want you to know that it’s not too late to protect your children, and there is hope for you too! Also, maybe parents are afraid to set boundaries and rather be their friends instead of their parents?
