Research: 1 min. read
Our vision at Proven is to see a revival of sexual integrity throughout the entire Bride of Christ. Everything we do works toward that end. Many (if not all) of our blog articles include research that shows why the need for such a revival is so immanent.
If you want to know the research about porn, we’ve put together an introductory list of articles and resources that will deepen your understanding of the reality and harmful effects of pornography. Check them out, and we hope that this information will continue to foster a deeper passion and ability to live a life of sexual integrity.
