Unpublishing Life After Lust

Dear Readers, 

After much thought and self-reflection, today I unpublished my book Life After Lust. There are many reasons for this. Mainly, this is not the story about myself, lust, or porn that I want out in the world. If you respond to this email, please do not ask me to explain my reasons. I may choose to blog about some of those reasons in the future. We’ll see. I may write another version or a different book. We’ll see.

Writing Life After Lust changed my life and I’ve seen the book change the lives of many others. Thank you all for reading! The people I’ve connected with because of my book and what I learned about myself in the process have made it all worth it.

I am also cancelling my email list. But if you want to follow this blog, I may share things here in the future. I imagine if I do, it will be less be about lust/sex addiction and more about IFS, healthy sexuality, and deeper healing of trauma. If that interests you, feel free to follow me here. I have let go of social media at this time, so the only place to hear from me publicly will be through this blog. I have stopped coaching, so the only way to work with me is if you live in California where I am a licensed therapist.

Lots of changes, I know! I wish you all the best in your journeys as you continue to heal and grow. May you be well, enjoy a sexually healthy life, and find the healing you deserve. In case I don’t see you…good afternoon, good evening, and good night.

In gratitude,

Forest Benedict, LMFT
