Terry Crews has confessed to a “dirty little secret.” In a series of Facebook videos this week, he explained that he was addicted to pornography and had to go to rehab for the problem. He said that his addiction started at age 12 and almost cost him his wife, Rebecca King-Crews. “For years, years, years, my dirty little secret was that I was addicted to pornography,” he stated in his first video, appropriately titled “Dirty Little Secrets.” "It really, really messed up my life in a lot of ways," Crews admitted. “I had the biggest sense of entitlement ever. I felt the world owed me something. I felt like my wife owed me sex.” Crews on TV revealed that he and his family are Christian:
He calls this a “worldwide problem.” “I know there are a lot of people who are going through this,” he concluded in his third video. “I love you guys and I’m here. Give me more of your questions … we gonna talk about this because the more we talk about it, the more we can beat it.”
He was also intervied by HuffPost Live to discuss the 90-day “sex fast” that he and his wife, Rebecca, completed to keep their 25-year marriage alive. “Ninety days, no sex. All relationship, all talk, all cuddle,” Crews explained. “I found at the end of that 90 days, I was more in love, more turned on. I knew who she was. It wasn’t like, ‘Let’s go out because I know I’m going to get some sex later.’ It was more, ‘Let’s go out because I wanna talk to you. I wanna know you.’” Crews, 47, said, “You cannot love someone and control them at the same time. All attempts to control your significant other are gonna lead in heartbreak because love is freedom. You know, if I kept my wife locked up in the basement, that ain’t love! If I restricted her in any way, it’s not love. But love is when she comes in the door because she wants to. Love is when she says, ‘Hey, let’s go out’ because she wants to be with me and it’s the same thing that I do with her.” “I’ve been in shape for a long time but there was a time when I wasn’t. To be honest, I got really, really depressed after football was over. I had to learn to acknowledge that I have sad days.”
To help other combat Pornography he has joined Fight the New Drug, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness on the harmful effects of pornography.
Dirty Little Secret
“I was addicted to pornography,” Crews revealed. “When you believe as a man that you are more valuable than your wife and kids, it allows something like pornography to be in your life because you feel like you deserve it. Pornography is using people. You’re treating people like objects. You’re treating people wrong. It’s like you’re not looking at people as human beings, you’re looking at them as objects to be used and that affects the way you talk to people. You think everyone can be used, everyone can be manipulated, everyone can be controlled. Once you get down to love, pornography cannot stay in that. Porn doesn’t exist in the world of love.”
