Episode 22: Reclaiming our Marriage after Porn - Cannon's Part 3


Natasha Helfer Parker continues her interview with Scott and Mitzi Cannon. They discuss the painful process Scott went through preparing to disclose to his wife his history with pornography viewing, how that disclosure went, the painful struggles that ensued in their marriage as a result, and how they came through to the other side by deciding to negotiate their sexuality on their own terms as a couple - instead of through the Mormon messaging they had both grown up with.  They end with how this process has left their relationship on more solid ground, with higher sexual satisfaction and sustainability, and most importantly, within a more intimate realm.
