"I became so obsessed with getting the attention of men,” recounts Beth, “that I would actually try to charm married men into thinking I was more wonderful than their wives. How sick is that?”
Susan’s husband introduced her to X-rated movies, butas we will soon seeit wasn’t long before she developed her own infatuation with the adult entertainment industry.
Lisa wasn’t promiscuous, but she so craved the attention of men that she would purposely wear revealing clotheseven in church.

To the people around her at church, Jane seemed like a typical Christian woman, but she assumed a different persona during her weekly trips to other cities.
The behavior of all of these women varied, but they each shared two things in common: they all claimed to be Christians and they all used sexual sin for the purpose of self-gratification.
While there are those women who are simply addicted to some type of sexual activity, most women involved in illicit sex use it as a means to attain some deeper form of satisfaction, such as the desire to feel loved, be noticed, or even be desired sexually. Many women start down the road simply looking for attention or fulfillment but end up addicted to some form of sexual behavior…
The truth is that Christian women are not only becoming increasingly involved in traditional forms of sexual sin such as fornication and adultery but are now branching out into new activities such as lesbianism and cyber-sex. For instance, consider the following statistics about the online activities of women:
•Women are twice as likely as men to visit chat rooms.
•One out of every six Christian women is addicted to pornography.
•One out of every three visitors to adult websites is female.
