We constantly talk about how and why “mindfulness” and CONNECTING with your True, Authentic Self is SO critical to recovery and healthy living!  Yet, when it comes to stepping back to be an “observer” and “watcher” of our thoughts, feelings and emotions—WHY can it be SO HARD?!  It’s way easy to get pulled into GOING TO WAR and battling it out with our brains—seeing the brain (especially the ego-addict-Limbic System) as the ENEMY! There is a way to work WITH your brain and not against it—a way to get into a "flow" of self-connection. STOP battling with yourself and start connecting!Learn more about Mark and Steve's new online program—"Dare to Connect!"

A podcast listener asked about her husband's risky, bizarre, self-centered sexual behaviors; his Erectile Dysfunction; and how these are related to his porn/sex addiction.In this episode Mark and Steve talk raw and real about these issues. They relate this to their own experiences with addiction and the many clients they've worked with over the decades. They discuss:-  How porn/sex addiction radically alters the "Arousal Template" resulting in a dramatic impact on healthy sexuality. -  Unaltered by extreme outside influences, a healthy Arousal Template represents our "sexual authenticity." -  Is our Arousal Template formed by nature or nurture? -  How can changes in the Arousal Template lead to Erectile Dysfunction?-  Can one's Arousal Template be changed in positive ways? If so, HOW? Learn more about Mark and Steve's new online program—"Dare to Connect!" You have live access to Mark and Steve three times a week--addicts, spouses and couples!

In this episode, Mark and Steve respond to a listener who is engaged to a porn addict. She submitted a message through PBSEpodast.com describing her situation:  she and her fiance have been together for two years. He has regularly used pornography during that time and she has let him know she is NOT OK with it. He promised he was getting help to quit porn but she discovered he's been lying about that. She also discovered he's been untruthful about other aspects of his life outside of the porn. In addition, she recently discovered text communications between him and his closest friends where they all commented that her expectations are too high and she is crazy for making such a big deal about his porn use. She is suffering from Betrayal Trauma. What should she do? Should she move ahead with marriage or pull back? Mark and Steve get very RAW and REAL in addressing this situation!

In this episode, Mark and Steve address and excellent question submitted by a PBSE listener—In the book written by Gary Chapman it talks about the 5 Love Languages. My husband says his love language is physical touch. Are most sex addicts love language physical touch? As a spouse how do I honor my needs and authentically respect myself? {there are days I don't want to make eye  contact, much less touch him after the betrayal} How do I make sense of this?-  If a spouse is a codependent, unhealthy and/or in an unbalanced state, then physical touch/sex as a love language is a misnomer. -  Looking at love vs. need and choosing vs. requiring as it applies to sex and physical touch in a relationship. -  Compulsive behaviors, including porn addiction, rewire the brain, placing physical touch/sex on a PEDESTAL—not as an optional component of giving and expressing love but as THE way to connect. -  Truly connected sexual intimacy is NOT manufactured but is the culmination and celebration of working to build ALL of the areas of holistic intimacy in a relationship. -  A healthy guy will have an affinity for physical touch among many other forms of connection. It will NOT be the sole "need" but rather an "optional desire." -  Be willing to explore ways in which sex may have become an unhealthy need or demand and HOW you can begin to move the needle toward it becoming a healthy desire and one piece of your overall holistic intimacy puzzle.

A BIG part of beginning to heal a marriage marred by pornography addiction, is for the addict spouse to provide a SAFE space for the betrayed spouse to honestly and openly express her pain and speak her truth. But when she does, it's very common (for a host of reasons) for the addict spouse to immediately throw up a WALL of self-defense and resistance.In this episode, Mark and Steve talk raw and real about the walls they both piled up when their wives tried to be totally authentic and speak their truth. Mark and Steve talk about where these walls come from and why as addicts we tend to build them.And, most importantly, how can we begin to tear down these walls so we can open the path to Real Healing and enjoy True Connection?

In this episode, Mark and Steve respond to a recent email from a listener—“I’d like to know how is it that your wives were willing and able to stay in your marriages through all the porn and affairs? My son-in-law is an addict and my daughter can’t see how she can stay married to him. She’s willing to be friends for the sake of the kids but she doesn’t know how she can stay. He is not yet admitting he’s an addict. She’s never felt loved in their young 5-year marriage.”What is the answer to this dilemma?

In this episode, Mark and Steve openly address a common issue they faced in their own recoveries, and one they see often with their clients—"Can I ever go back to porn?"  What this means to most men in recovery is—"Can I ever just live like a 'normal' guy?" Do I have to do this "recovery stuff" the rest of my life?!  What about masturbation, provocative movies and entertainment, certain sexual practices? What are the boundaries and can these change after I have a period of sobriety? And VERY importantly--HOW does this whole train of thought and questions affect a spouse suffering from betrayal trauma? What boundaries can and should she expect and enforce?

In this episode, Mark and Steve address a PBSE listener's heart-felt dilemma. After discovering her spouse's addiction to porn and feeling the intense betrayal, she was justifiably angry, hurt and numb. Here's how she expressed it—"It breaks my heart that I have these feelings for someone I love so much. It makes me angry with myself and him. All the years of lies have just turned me somewhat cold. I don't want to be bitter. How can I get back to a place of empathy and compassion?"In this episode, Mark and Steve talk real about HOW to navigate the line between "loving" an addicted spouse and "trusting" him.

In this episode, Mark and Steve address a questions submitted by a listener—"Can you discuss the dynamic of being the spouse of an addict who is not a believer? In my marriage there has been sexual addiction and he is 2 1/2 years into recovery/sobriety but we are now dealing with the dynamic of a sexless marriage. How can we make the transition to a healthy sexual connection void of a spiritual connection?"First, we need to be clear about what "healthy sex" is and is not. (for a deeper dive on this, see PBSE episode #23: Healthy vs. Toxic Sex)-  Healthy sex begins with a strong emotional/spiritual connection. It's all about "what you bring with you."-  Seeking to understand and then to be understood.-  Focus/appreciation on your partner as a "whole" as opposed to selective "parts." -  Physical intimacy is a gauged physical expression of a point on the Connection Spectrum.Second, we also need to be clear about "Spirituality" vs. "Religiosity." -  Religion is an institution/organization of spiritual concepts, doctrines, structure, ordinances, core tenets, etc. Spirituality is the "relationship accompaniment" to religion. Religion gives me a definition of God; Spirituality is coming to know and communing with God. -  Healthy Sexual Intimacy is a coming together of physical bodies AND spiritual bodies. A key to a truly connection relationship is finding the "commonalities" and "intersection" of our individual spiritual beliefs/worlds. A true coming together.Find out more about Steve Moore at:  Ascension CounselingLearn more about Mark Kastleman at:  Reclaim Counseling ServicesHere's a great article on the "Brain Science" behind porn and sex addiction—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/brain-science-porn-sex-addictionHere's an article about healing Betrayal Trauma—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/healing-betrayal-trauma-videoWant to learn more about HOW to break free from porn?—https://www.reclaimcounselingservices.com/overcome-porn-sex-addictionWondering if your marriage can survive porn and sex addiction?

In this episode, Mark and Steve address some very poignant questions submitted by a listener:"What do you do when the proof is in the pudding that your partner is a sexual addict but they refuse to acknowledge it?I asked him for a separation at the beginning of Dec hoping that would shake him up a bit …  He has agreed to couples counseling but is "offended" at my suggestion that he has a sex addiction. There have been many discoveries over our 17 years. Is there a way to help him see or are we a lost cause?"-  We have NO control over (and must surrender) another's feelings, even our partner's.-  We tell the truth at any cost!-  The focus in true Intimacy is on Authenticity, NOT on preserving/protecting/enabling unacceptable behaviors. -  LOVE cannot be LOVE if it is robbed of truth!-  FEAR can derail authenticity.-  We CAN help a spouse "see" the reality of their addiction, BUT we cannot force them to recognize it. We can be consistent and bold with boundaries and consequences. We can "hold up a mirror." And, we can love him or her enough to let them be uncomfortable. -  How to use "outside voices" and "other messengers" to help an addict spouse come to a place of vulnerability, acceptance and accountability.

In this episode, Mark and Steve address a recent question by a listener—a very honest, legitimate, excellent question—"Hi there, my recovering spouse and I LOVE your podcasts.  it has brought us closer through sharing our thoughts on episodes. One thing I would love to hear your take on as a betrayed spouse is how on earth do you as an addict keep those images and thoughts of porn and past sexual encounters out of your head on a daily basis? I would think it would be really easy to "reminisce" and have no one be the wiser.

Seems like a cop-out not to have any women on here. Just 2 guys guessing what a betrayed woman is going though.
