"Where we are the most wounded or the most deficient is often reflected in the nature of the content that we are drawn to. That's why so many people are looking for porn; because of mother wounds. It's often linked to the fundamental psychological roots of trauma, parent-child relationships, and our sense of self and identity." - Sathiya Sam

Power Quotes From The Show

Addiction = Lack of Connection?

"The opposite of addiction is not sobriety, it's connection. Porn addiction is an intimacy disorder. It has nothing to do with sex." - Sathiya Sam

Desexualizing The Brain

"It took me 5 years from that season before I finally experienced true freedom from pornography. There were still wounds in my heart and issues in my belief systems. The last 2 years of recovery is where I started to do the work; I worked through trauma and forgiveness, and I understood some of my past that contributed to my sexual development. And that's when I found real healing." - Sathiya Sam

Porn Is a Demonic Energy

"Pornography is wreaking havoc on our society, mostly because it's offering people something that's very close to the real thing. It feels similar, it looks similar, but it's actually vastly different. They say pornography is the 3 A's: affordable, accessible, and anonymous. And all those 3 things working together are pulling the wool over people's eyes."- Sathiya Sam
