For contributing to the exploitation of the most vulnerable victims, for betraying everyone who trusted me. For downloading child pornography. I'm serving years in prison, which is right; but how is it enough? Does it make real restitution to anyone I've hurt?
I got here by feeding a porn habit demanding constant new shocks. I thought I was alone, but now I know hundreds of men who followed the same path; and countless more who may never break the law but are trapped in addiction, harming others and themselves in subtler ways.
Because this is the miracle of my life: I'm freer and happier in prison than I ever was on the web. I have a purpose now, and a loving community supporting me in it, including victims of sexual crimes. And it's a miracle available to everyone.
That we can all break the silence of shame that allows this addiction to grow. That together we can find ways to prevent further victimizations through pornography. And that the story of my crimes and their consequences, my sickness and recovery, can help others break free.
This blog is not administered by Gerard Jones but consists mainly of excerpts from his book in progress, "The Porn Prison," all the proceeds of which which will go to victims of sex addiction and sexual exploitation.
