She Was an Addict Who Consumed More Than 400 Hours of Porn Until Something Happened That Caused Her to 'Never Touch Porn Again

"I don’t read sex scenes in books and I don’t listen to over-sexualized music."

Popular British vlogger Oghosa Ovienrioba revealed to the world in a video posted to YouTube last year that she is a recovering porn addict — and now she's hoping to help others embroiled in their own personal struggles against smut.

Ovienrioba, 22, said in the clip posted in February 2014 that she was abused at an early age and began watching porn regularly at age 15 or 16, which led to years of obsessively and secretly viewing smut, according to the Daily Mail.

In addition to discussing the abuse she faced during her younger years in a viral video last year, Ovienrioba, a Christian, said that she was extremely hesitant to share her experience with porn, but that she had two dreams that she felt were signs she was supposed to share what happened.

"God, I do not want to talk about this topic … I'm not doing it," she recalled thinking after feeling compelled to share her story.

But she changed her mind after purportedly having a second dream imploring her to describe what happened.

"When I was about 15 or 16, I started watching porn much more regularly and this time it didn't shock me as much," Ovienrioba said. "The thing about porn is, it works on desensitizing."

She said that, by the time she reached 21, she was watching porn every day, if not multiple times per day.

"When you see people, you don't even see people anymore," Ovienrioba said. "You see them as sex objects."

The Daily Mail summarized just how bad the scenario got: "At her worst point, Oghosa would masturbate between five and six times a day - and watched a total of over 400 hours of adult material."

Her life changed, though, when she became a Christian at the age of 21, a transformation that led her to leave smut behind for good.

"I was really done. And luckily, that was the point that I got saved and I remembered someone telling me that 'Jesus wants to have a personal relationship with you,'" she said. "Literally everything changed. From the day I was saved, I never touched porn again."

Ovienrioba said that she received a very positive response from the video, including comments from many women who admitted that they, too, struggle with pornography.

"Lots of people don’t think girls can suffer a porn addiction but it’s a problem for both sexes," she said, according to the Daily Mail. "I hope I can help others out there — talking about your problem is the first step."

She said that Christians should be careful about what they let into their hearts and minds, noting that she's cautious about what she consumes.

"I don’t read sex scenes in books and I don’t listen to over-sexualized music," she said. "There are some artists that just sing about sex and it’s best to avoid that. I also try to avoid inappropriate programs on TV late at night."
