016: Curiosity with our sexual brokenness is where we discover our life with Jay Stringer

Jay Stringer has spent the last decade working on the frontlines of the demand for pornography and sexual exploitation. Jay’s first book, Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing will be released in September. His book includes research on over 3,800 men and women struggling with unwanted sexual behavior, be that the use of pornography, an affair, or buying sex. Jay holds an MDiv and Master in Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology.

In this episode, Jay shares from his research an important connection between an individual stuck in unwanted sexual behavior and having a clear lack of purpose in their life. Join us this week as we discuss:


  • The language of addiction and placing blame
  • Growing up as the Pastor’s kid pre-cell phone days
  • Transitioning between the good and the best
  • Knowing the what and learning the why of healing sexual brokenness
  • Good as the enemy of best: knowing your ‘yes’
  • Pornography is a squatter and your body is a vacant house
  • Lacking purpose allures you to watching other people’s lives
  • What doesn’t kill you eventually will
  • Beauty as the antidote
  • The beauty behind the abstract experiences
  • Swim in the direction of the shark: facing unwanted sexual behavior as the path to our redemption and healing
  • Calling behavior into deeper meaning
  • Bringing to light the brokenness
