Sam’s life is a story of struggling with a double dose of inner shame, colored by both his Chinese American and Christian upbringing. His path to recovery and healing ultimately is a success story for group and individual therapy, as well as a testimony to authentic intimacy with oneself and others.
If you are concerned that your own habits with sex or pornography have become problematic, there are some valuable messages for you. If your spouse or partner is struggling with sex addiction, you’ll definitely want to listen in as well.
