“Porn is hijacking people’s lives, robbing futures, families and freedom. We educate on the damages of porn and journey people towards a life without it-a life of authentic connection & healthy relationships”
Ian Henderson, Founder & CEO
Established in 2013 in Manchester UK, by Ian Henderson, Naked Truth Project set out to open eyes & free lives from the damaging impact of pornography through awareness, education and recovery programmes.
Many of our team have their own stories and have seen first-hand the destruction that porn can cause in people’s lives, but we also know that in today’s culture, porn has become so normalised that many don’t realise the damage it’s doing until it feels too late.
You may have heard this analogy about the importance of prevention and restoration before. It goes something like this…
A man was fishing in the river when he noticed someone was drowning. He pulled them out and attempted to resuscitate them. Shortly afterwards, he noticed another person in the river and saved them too. He then noticed another, and another and another. Soon he was exhausted and realised he wouldn’t be able save all of the drowning people- there were too many .
Somebody needed to go upstream, and find out why people were falling into the river in the first place.
We’re equally passionate about prevention and restoration, so we’re in both places: upstream, educating about the harms of porn and warning people of the dangers ahead, and downstream, pulling people out of the deep waters of addiction, betrayal trauma and much more.
Now based in the UK, US, Europe and New Zealand, our team of communicators, educators and creatives work to inform and inspire conversation around the impacts of pornography whilst our team of professional counsellors and specialists provide practical support to porn users and partners.
