Podcast Description:


On this episode of Mormon Sex Info, Matt Fullmer joins Natasha to share his experience going through “Sex Addiction Treatment,” coming from the Mormon Tradition. He shares his experiences with the treatment as the church ramped up its porn rhetoric, why the treatment didn’t work for him and why he’s now better off; realizing that this type of treatment is not clinically sound or effective.

Matt resides in Topeka, KS where he has a dental practice.
