How To Overcome Sexual Temptation


Recommended Posts

Since biblical times, sexual temptation has led to the downfall of many. Temptations are primarily meaningless and rule over your heart without reason. 

With the internet offering a great deal of anonymity to the users, it is no wonder that more people are victims of sexual temptation nowadays. What might seem like a harmless screen, in the beginning, may end up in a pornographic conquest. 

And remember, the more you engage, the more addicted and tempted you get. In extreme scenarios, people might even end up cheating on their partner without any intention of doing so- all because they could not resist getting sexually tempted. 

For thousands of years, adultery has led to rifts between people, and some have even waged wars and killed others because of it. 

In short, the failure to prevent yourself from getting sexually tempted can get you into a significant amount of trouble. But with the right efforts, you can both resist and control it. And I am here to tell you how!

#1 Avoid pornography: Pornography surely helps you if you believe in self-pleasuring but it can also create unrealistic visions of temptation. Like any other fiction, a major part of it is make-believe. 

But sometimes, your brain fails to process this fact and starts imagining it to be real. And then, you might want to replicate a situation that might cause a considerable amount of disruption in your life. So, I would strongly suggest that you be wary about the media you consume. 

#2 Think about the consequences: Do not forget that all your actions have consequences, and there’s no way to avoid them. So, when you feel tempted towards another woman, think about how your wife would think of it. 

Are you willing to give up on a loving family just because you were briefly tempted by another woman? I don’t think so! It is best that you calculate your moves and consider the bad and good. Everyone gets tempted; it’s only human. But again, to be human is to also know how and when to resist. 

#3 Don’t put yourself in risky situations: One of the best ways to overcome a sexually tempting situation is to not be in one. Try to keep yourself away from the lures and the traps. 

Be it images or people, when you see yourself getting involved unwantedly, it is best to maintain some distance. If you feel strangely attracted to another person, try avoiding situations where you both might end up in the same room.

Have you had to overcome sexual temptation? What steps did you take to get through?

I tell anyone that has issues that porn is one of the worst things you could make use of. Even if you are single. You end up making a habit of it and it can cost you an otherwise healthy relationship. Porn is something you should only enjoy now and then like alcohol, not a daily or even weekly basis. That is how addictions get formed.
