Porn Nation Uncovers the Sexualization of America
Date:5/5/2008

Recovering sex addict Michael Leahy tells his personal story and seeks to put a warning label on the industry

CHICAGO, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It is accessible from anywhere. It has permeated our world, our campuses, our places of work, and even our homes. An estimated 40 million American adults regularly visit pornographic websites, and at $13.3 billion, the 2006 revenues of sex and the porn industry in the U.S. were bigger than the revenues of the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball combined.

Author Michael Leahy spent the greater part of his life quietly addicted to pornography and sex. He only came to terms with the magnitude of his choices after destroying his 15-year marriage and losing his two boys. Michael sought treatment, rebuilt his life, and now he's committed everything to helping others who struggle to get free from the web of pornography. But this is bigger than just one man, millions of people struggle. It is also the story of the rampant sexualization of our culture, our children, our workplaces, churches and more. Young and old are impacted. It is the story of our country, our America -- our very own Porn Nation.

But how did it come to this? How has porn become so ubiquitous and commonplace that it passes almost unnoticed in homes across the country? Michael Leahy answers these questions in Porn Nation (Northfield Publishing, 256 pp., $18.99), the moving narrative of one man's journey to sex addiction and back. The story begins with Michael's first exposure to porn as a child, and follows his life as salacious images and experiences become his uncontrollable secret. Readers will also hear from Michael's ex-wife Patty, who contributed her journal entries from some of Michael's darkest moments. After losing his job, his family, and all that was important to him because of his insatiable addiction, Michael finally started down the long road to recovery.

That road has led him to speaking at college cam
