FROM VOICE FOR CHOICE TO LPNP
As individuals, we have the power to choose to remove porn from our lives. However, we need knowledge and support to make this choice for ourselves. Only then can we use our voice to help others make this choice for themselves.
The spirit of Voice For Choice remains in Love People Not Pixels. However, the transition was necessary in order to specify the importance of healthy human relationships over pornography, rather than simply the "power to choose".
We're just like you.
JOE | Events and Training
My adult life began at the dawn of the internet. They said then that it would change everything. They were right, in so many wonderful, terrible ways.
Having been a son, a husband and now a father who has sons, I've come to realize no one can do it alone. The great news is that we were never meant to.
I was called to fight human trafficking upon realization that Houston is the epicenter of sexual exploitation in America. I have come to realize that the proliferation of porn in our culture is the fuel that feeds this exploitation.
BEAU | Founder/Director
"My mess is my message and my test is my testimony."
I began Love People Not Pixels (LPNP) in 2016 as a response to the freedom, restoration and healing from sexual addiction that I experienced in my own life.
One of the goals of LPNP is to normalize conversations about the harms of viewing pornography in order to make the entire subject less shameful, less avoided and less secretive in families and relationships.
CHRISTIAN | Storyteller
My hometown of Houston, Texas is widely considered to be one of the world's largest hubs for human trafficking. I love my city, and it makes me sick to know that it harbors such evil. The stakes have never been higher, and there is no greater cause than this.
While the fight against sexual exploitation on this grand scale is complex, the simple truth is that much of the demand is fueled by the exponential growth of pornography.
If we can't stop the supply, we must stem the demand.
This issue is on my heart because of what I faced as a child, seeing porn for the first time at the age of 9. Due to this, I had a porn addiction until I was 22 years old. I was in a serious relationship for 3 years while watching porn. I felt ashamed and like I was living a double life. I didn’t feel like there was anyone I could talk to about the issue.
7 years later I am happily married and am now experiencing the freedom that comes from living without secrets, without porn, and through defending love.
