Pornography is not just a man's issue.  25% of Christian women are ^addicted to pornography and sadly, 70% of these women will never confide in someone ^about their problems.

There has been an explosion of ministries battling ^pornography's destructive and tragic effects.  Porn is highly addictive and ^requires plenty of tools to break its strangling hold.  However, these ministries ^and tools are more accessible to men than women.  Women turn to pornography ^for different reasons than men but once addicted feel the same alienation and shame.  ^Women desperately need a place of confession, accountability, and healing separate ^from men.

In Dirty Girls Come Clean, Crystal Renaud, founder of ^Dirty Girls Ministries and an AACC certified counselor - whose own addiction started ^at age 10 - provides steps to recovery uniquely tailored for the female addict.  ^Beginning with surrender, moving to confession, embracing accountability, owning ^responsibility, to finally sharing with others, the reader will be taken on a journey ^that can guide her from a state of woundedness to one of healing.

CRYSTAL RENAUD is Founder and Executive Director of Dirty Girls ^Ministries, a not-for-profit ministry helping women struggling with pornography ^and sexual addiction. Founded by Crystal in February 2009, the desire of Dirty ^Girls Ministries is to break through the stigmatic barriers that are keeping ^women in bondage to this addiction. Crystal has used the experience gained from ^her own 8-year pornography addiction to counsel hundreds of women as well as writes ^and speaks in various venues on the topic. Crystal is single and resides in the ^Kansas City area.

Crystal is the real deal."


Mary ^Southerland

"Dirty Girls ^Come Clean is a fresh dose of authenticity and transparency that gives a voice to ^the woman in bondage.  Sexual addiction has a name; it has a face; it has a ^soul.

You are not alone.


The sexual addictions of pornography and masturbation are not just men's issues. They're women's issues, too. Research shows that 25% of Christian women are addicted to pornography. But 70% of these women will never admit their struggle.


In Dirty Girls Come Clean, Crystal Renaud aims to change these statistics and help you gain freedom from sexual addiction.


Why This Book?


So often, ministries and tools for overcoming these sexual addictions are more accessible to men than they are to women. Even if these ministries and tools were accessible to women, they may not be as effective in giving freedom because women turn to pornography for different reasons than men do.


Women need a resource crafted specifically for them.


A Trusted Source


Crystal, founder of Dirty Girls Ministries and AACC certified counselor, comes clean first. Her story of addiction to pornography began when she was 10 years old and continued and intensified for eight years.


During this time of sexual addiction, Crystal deceived and withdrew. She came to know shame intimately, and she thought she was alone in her struggle.


After coming clean about her sexual addiction, Crystal also includes stories of other women who have come clean about theirs.


A Plan for Freedom


Crystal is determined to help women come clean and, by God's grace and power, get free.


Addressing both the sexual addictions themselves as well as underlying issues that cause them, Crystal provides a plan for freedom using the acronym SCARS.

S-Surrender: Trusting the Healer C-Confession: Out of the Darkness A-Accountability: Restoring Our Character R-Responsibility: Owning My Part of the Story S-Sharing: God Never Wastes an Experience
In addition to her plan for freedom from sexual addiction, Crystal provides other resources such as: personal inventories, the twelve steps of sexaholics anonymous, online accountability programs, other books, and links to recovery groups.


Join Crystal and many others who have claimed freedom from sexual addiction. Now is your time to come clean and be free.


"With the recent release of Crystal's book Dirty Girls Come Clean women now have the tools they need to fight a battle that many assume only ensnares men.


I can only imagine what kind of hope and encouragement this book is going to offer women who have believed for years, decades, that they were the only ones struggling and there was no hope for them."


-Book review by Marsha Fisher on porntopurity.com


An Excerpt from the First Chapter:


This book is for you, the woman who feels alone in addiction to pornography. I don't believe in coincidences. This book is in your hands because God wants to speak some truth to you, and, for whatever reason, He's chosen to use this book to do so.


The dark cloud of this addiction is far-reaching. Pornography addiction knows no path other than one of destruction, isolation, and suffocation. Pornography addiction knows no creed. Pornography addiction knows no gender.


We are all sexual beings. If not, you and I would not be living on this earth. So to believe that pornography can only be a man's problem is not only false, but it is an ignorant lie that comes from the enemy.


The enemy, Satan, deceived Even in the garden of Eden by convincing her that if she ate the forbidden fruit, she would be like God. She in turn offered Adam the fruit, he took some, and as a result of their disobedience, they were expelled from the beautiful garden where they had enjoyed perfect fellowship with God. Satan's goal was to destroy. And the enemy has been trying to destroy women ever since.


From the first bite of forbidden fruit to pornography addiction, the enemy will use whatever he can to deceive us and keep us ineffective for use in the kingdom of God.


May you find comfort in knowing that not only are you not alone in your struggle, but there is hope for breaking the stronghold of this addiction.


And that hope comes from Jesus.


I write this book from a Christian point of view because it is my personal belief that Jesus is the reason I stand free from pornography today. But as I said, pornography addiction knows no creed. Pornography affects everyone. So it is my hope that the steps provided throughout this book will be beneficial to all women, from all walks of life.


You were created for so much more than this life you've been living. Life is to be lived abundantly. It is time to come on out from behind the bushes.


Life is waiting.
