Welcome to Episode #80 of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. Today’s conversation is with Scott Cone, the founder of Sexcessful Men, a recovery coaching practice that helps Christian men who struggle with pornography, childhood sexual abuse, unwanted same-sex attraction, and other compulsive sexual behaviors.
Today we talk about unwanted sexual drivers. Our conversation takes us into the following:
Scott’s faith story and how he became a recovery coach.
Attachment styles as a foundation for sexual, financial, and “vision” forces.
What trauma is and how it impacts us emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.
How the arousal template is a battery of energy that drives our sexual preferences.
The commonalities between our sexual forces and our ambitions, money management habits, and more.
The Scriptural basis for these sexual energy pockets that originated in broken-heartedness.
How moments of distress in our present ignite unmanageable arousal from our traumatic past.
The similarities between our past traumas and our present searches for meeting our sexual needs (fetishes, scenarios, etc.).
How every “trigger tells a story” is worthy of being explored, rather than just repressed.
The power of fantasy exploration and understanding what fantasy is attempting to serve.
How pastors & leaders can lead themselves, their families, and their congregations better by exploring their own stories of sexual brokenness.
