David & Valerie
David is a pastor who could not stop looking at pornography. He says, "I can't reason this away, that something so offensive to me is so attractive to me."
Tim & Stacey
Tim is a pastor who was arrested for engaging in public sexual activity with another man. He resigned from the church. His 30 year marriage was in jeopardy. As he would preach he would often think, "If you really knew me, you wouldn't like me." He also had a 20 year addiction to pornography. It started when he was sexually abused as a teenager.
Laird engages in cyber relationships. It started with chat sites but led to webcams. Curiosity led to compulsivity, logging on several times a week. He says, "To be in a web cam situation and to have this very demonstrative controlling environment which is a turn on to me, that's not something I would try -- or try to get away with -- with a real partner."
Internet Chat & Murder
46 year old Thomas was stuck in a dead end job and a unsatisfactory marriage. He found it was easier to talk to people on line than with people in his own life. "It was like a drug that I needed every day," he says. He created a profile of 18-year-old Tommy and connected with a 16 year-old called "tall hot blonde." But the lies don't end there and it escalated out of control.
