Study Claims Most Christian Men Regularly View Pornography

A new survey from Proven Men Ministries claims that 77 percent of Christian men between the ages of 18 and 30 look at pornography at least monthly.


The study was conducted by Barna Group and sampled 388 self-identified Christian men. 


According to the study, 36 percent of men view pornography daily and another 32 percent admit to being addicted to pornography.


For middle-aged Christian men, the survey found that 77 percent look at pornography while at work and 64 percent are looking at pornography at least monthly.


Married men also reported that 55 percent look at pornography monthly and 35 percent of married men had an extramarital sexual affair.


"These statistics knock the wind right out of you. They also confirm what we already know; that there definitely is a problem with pornography and affairs among Christian men and that they are starving for the church to step forward with solutions," according to Joel Hesch, who sponsored the survey and is the founder of the biblically based Proven Men Ministries. 


He adds: "The purpose of the survey was not to point fingers, but to get a better grasp on the scope of the problem in light of ready access to pornography in this Internet era.
