Popular British vlogger Oghosa Ovienrioba revealed to the world in a video posted to YouTube last year that she is a recovering porn addict — and now she’s hoping to help others embroiled in their own personal struggles against smut.
Ovienrioba, 22, said in the clip posted in February 2014 that she was abused at an early age and began watching porn regularly at age 15 or 16, which led to years of obsessively and secretly viewing smut, according to the Daily Mail.
In addition to discussing the abuse she faced during her younger years in a viral video last year, Ovienrioba, a Christian, said that she was extremely hesitant to share her experience with porn, but that she had two dreams that she felt were signs she was supposed to share what happened.
“God, I do not want to talk about this topic … I’m not doing it,” she recalled thinking after feeling compelled to share her story.
But she changed her mind after purportedly having a second dream imploring her to describe what happened.
“When I was about 15 or 16, I started watching porn much more regularly and this time it didn’t shock me as much,” Ovienrioba said. “The thing about porn is, it works on desensitizing.”
She said that, by the time she reached 21, she was watching porn every day, if not multiple times per day.
“When you see people, you don’t even see people anymore,” Ovienrioba said. “You see them as sex objects.”
….“Lots of people don’t think girls can suffer a porn addiction but it’s a problem for both sexes,” she said, according to the Daily Mail. “I hope I can help others out there — talking about your problem is the first step.”
She said that Christians should be careful about what they let into their hearts and minds, noting that she’s cautious about what she consumes.
