The Dr. Kevin Show – Joshua Shea

Aired Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 3:00 PM PST / 6:00 PM EST

Joshua Shea is a recovering pornography addict and the author of The Addiction Nobody Will Talk About: How I Let My Pornography Addiction Hurt People and Destroy Relationships, released in January 2018. His latest book, He’s a Porn Addict… Now What? was just released in December. Shea has appeared on over 100 podcasts, television and radio shows using his personal story to promote the ideas that porn addiction spans all demographics and those with a problem should seek help before it’s too late, as it became in his case.

Prior to admitting his addiction, Joshua was a prominent magazine publisher, award-winning journalist, film festival founder and politician in central Maine. As his 20-year addiction was reaching a critical level in late 2013, Joshua made the error of engaging a teenage girl in an online chatroom, for which he was arrested and served six months in jail.

In 2017, Joshua launched following several years of intensive therapy. He has also contributed articles about recovery to and Recovery Today magazine and has developed and presented a porn addiction lecture for churches, libraries and other groups. Sober since early 2014, Joshua still lives in Central Maine with his wife and two children.
