Porn and The Pandemic – A book review.

There was the porn. Then the pandemic came, and it became the Porn Pandemic.

And Pornography is the addiction nobody will talk about. But fortunately, there are few amazing people like Joshua Shea, who not only want to talk about it, but also want to tackle the issue from the roots and enlighten the present generation.

Unfortunately, the global pandemic came. And people got sacked, took compulsory leave, got lonely and stuck in their homes.

And out of these people were recovering pornography addicts. So when recovering pornography addicts thought they were getting better in their lives, the pandemic came and boom! They end up spending 90% of their time in that bedroom or secret corner and thus, the temptation of a relapse (going back to the addiction) becomes stronger.

Joshua Shea (a porn addict in recovery, advocate, speaker and author of best selling books) discovered this issue and knew that something had to be done. He immediately set out to writing a book that captures the Pornography in pandemic and thus titled the book:

PORN AND THE PANDEMIC -How Three Months In 2020 Changed Everything.

The author looked at the elements in this pandemic (such as loneliness, isolation, and disconnection) and carefully explained how and why these elements have the potential to cause a relapse in recovering addicts and also bring in new people to the world of online pornography.

Interviews conducted also made me to realize that anyone can be on the road to online pornography addiction and might not even realize it!

I particularly became engaged with some interviews with porn addicts, cam models, therapists and how people share the devastating effects of pornography (particularly in this pandemic), in their lives.

As I was reading the experiences of porn addicts, I found out that teenagers, youths and young adults are the most set of people that is being drawn into the world of online pornography in this pandemic. So if you have teens or young adults around, this book provides statistics and extremely rare tips of the potential of the pandemic to draw their attention towards pornography.

The Author made use of statistics that picture the drama going on in online pornography since the beginning of lockdown.

What surprises me is that, major sites are really working on this pandemic. Can you imagine the biggest porn site in the world offering it’s premium contents for free?!

I give kudos and accolades to the author for making detailed research on the platforms that we least expect to have elements of pornography.

The author took major sites like YouTube and Snapchat and provided detailed analysis that I’m very happy to know about.

Until the reading of his book, I didn’t know that sites like YouTube possess many adult contents. And now, I will be extremely careful with these sites and how I use them.

Some therapists also gave their observations, views and extremely valuable tips that relates to online pornography in this pandemic.


I really love this book because, it provides insights for anyone and everyone.

I’m not a porn addict, but I’m really happy to come by this book because, to be honest, I have been seeing more of adult contents popping up in random sites since the pandemic.

But reading the experiences and discoveries of not only the author, but other porn addicts, has really hardened my mind towards online pornography.

You will find many shocking and drastic experiences of addicts in this book. Like a man who hooked up with a lady online, had sexual intercourse, and got the STD. Then something unexpected happened, he did something very hurtful and pitiful to his wife. I’m not going to tell you what he did, but trust me, that’s the hurtful thing that you can do to your loved ones if you have a pornography addiction and you don’t seek help fast.

I recommend this book to you. If you have a porn addiction or not, I will still recommend this book to you.

Remember, (for non-porn addicts) you might be on your way to online pornography addiction with the things you do, but you might not YET realize it. Don’t let your relationships with people and family be cut off because you ignored the early signs of online pornography.

The author of this book, Joshua Shea, was in a deep mess and cut off from family and friends because of his unattended porn addiction. Now, he’s an advocate and devoted person to enlightening people about the dangers and consequences of pornography.


If you are not a porn addict, you should grab a copy of this book so that you will have the information beforehand and will know how to stop that feeling in you and the drastic consequences before it becomes an addiction and worsen with the lockdown and pandemic.

But if you are a porn addict, You should know that you have to get yourself a copy. The intensity of the problem isn’t in watching pornography. It is in not seeking help and guidance, because if you don’t seek help, it can turn really ugly and unfortunate.

If you know of any friend that was battling with pornography addiction before the pandemic, you will really love to refer this book to the person. Because trust me, the person will need the support, help and statistics present in this book to scale through these tough times. You wouldn’t love to see your friend going back to the porn addiction, would you?

  1. It is great that you have addressed the issue on your blog. It is a much needed discussion and people including me try to just push it under the carpet as it does not impact us. But there are hundreds of thousands of young adults addicted to porn and the conversation has to begin somewhere.

    1. Yes. The issue is really needed. Especially during these times of global Pandemic.

      It’s a shameful addiction that’s why it’s the addiction nobody will talk about.

      But with you and I spreading the word and enlightenment, positivity change is inevitable 🙏😃✅

  2. Bravely and beautifully covering an important topic… I too am not a fan of porn… yet am aware from hearing from others that use it that it is very addictive. It’s also insidious and even kids can be bombarded with it, sometimes by accident. I once went to look up school calendars (when holidays are etc), and a porn site had titled their site as a school calendar site, which meant it came up in non-applicable search results; so they are actively targeting kids out there. Craziness. It’s a major problem and a cause of massive mind pollution at an earlier and earlier age, imho. It needs to be properly labelled and categorized, and certainly not exploiting kids by being allowed to play tricks on the unsuspecting innocent, at the very least. I suppose as a sometimes-riské-romance poetry writer I’m commenting on thin ice here, but I want to support this cause, so here I am giving a standing ovation. Great post Vincent. 👏👏👏

    1. Wow! I’m so mind blown 🤯 at this detailed explanation of this common and disturbing issue.

      Adults are going into recovery that’s why the porn sites are now targeting new innocent market audience, which unfortunately, kids fall into.

      😢😢that’s very sad. Can you imagine that! School calendar site?! It’s just pure craziness! Imagine. The kids won’t be prepared for this and won’t know what’s going to hit them 😢

      Thanks to your comment and observations, I think porn advocates should shift their focus to kids. Kids are mostly reserved and they won’t say a word until the addiction is fully blown.

      This is one of the most enlightening comments that I’ve seen on my blog.

      It contains so much insights that are so helpful!

      Thanks so much Lia. I’m also giving a standing ovation for your comment! It really deserves accolades 👏🏽

      1. Thank you so much for this amazing and encouraging reply Vincent. Indeed, it’s my belief that kids need to not be judged and shamed for what they view online but rather guided and educated and inspired to make the right choices and filter out toxic input! Thanks so much for providing this space for discussion and you again make some excellent points here. 🙏🙏👍🔆

  3. Good for you for bringing this topic up. Pornography has become a horrible problem in our society. What is so sad to me is that we are making dolls now in other countries and in the US that talk and are several thousand dollars. They are programmed to say pleasing things to men and of course they are made to specifications, right down to the size and shape of the nipple. They can’t make these sex dolls fast enough and they make children dolls as well. I found this out when doing research for my book. Some men live with these dolls and even take them out in wheelchairs. This is a serious problem. I hope that this book can help those suffering with this addiction. Again, good for you for bringing it up. Also bless all those who struggle with this problem who are working hard to change their lives. Have a blessed day and love to you and all your loved ones. 💕❤️🌺🌸

    1. Wow 😳 Dolls?!

      I didn’t even think about dolls. I guess there’s a lot of things to pornography than I even know.

      This is really getting out of control. These dolls will unarguably ruin many lives and happiness of many individuals.

      You have really enlightened us and brought us to another wonderful point of view about this matter.

      The very sad thing is, these dolls have a high probability of getting into the hands of kids, which can be very drastic and dangerous.

      Porn addicts or even non addicts really need help and enlightenment . And we are going to help them in whatever best way we can

      Thanks so much for this very wonderful and insightful comment. I so glad to know this.

      I will have a blessed day! And you too Joni.
      Wishing you all the best love in the world 🌎❤️

  4. Great post, very informative. I imagine that the pandemic has been rife with many addictions, not just this one. The devil never takes a vacation, as we know–but neither does our God! He is near to all who call for Him to help. Blessings, Brother.

    1. Thanks so much.

      Yes, the pandemic has been a major player in the rise of addictions. But just like you said, God isn’t resting. He’s looking for wonderful ways of drawing the addicts out of their misery and into the light!
