A must have resource April 1 2011
By C. Miley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dirty Girls Come Clean is part testimonial, part resource and part informational. It is also 100% needed. It is the story of Crystal Renaud's personal journey through addiction to pornography and her recovery process. In fact, this book came about as a result of her search for resources to assist in the recovery journey, and not finding any that adequately addressed the specific issues and needs of women facing this particular addiction.

Part of the book adapts a technique used in many sexual addiction recovery programs called SCARS (Surrender, Confession, Accountability, Responsibility, Sharing). A chapter is devoted to each category, with explanations and testimonials from women at various stages of recovery included, which are detailed but never graphic. Practical action steps/questions are included at the end of each chapter, as well as additional available resources, making it useful for independent use as well as group settings.

This book was very well written and is so inspirational. It approaches porn addiction and its potentially associated behaviors (such as masturbation, sexting, sexual activity) as symptoms of a "core unhealed woundedness". The bottom line is that God never wastes an experience, even (maybe especially) the painful ones. Instead of hiding behind her shame and guilt, Renaud is using her experiences for God's glory and wants this book, as well as Dirty Girls Ministries, to be a tool of liberation from bondage. Her style is very conversational and user-friendly, making a taboo subject less threatening.

Dirty Girls Come Clean is a book of inspiration and hope. While I think it is destined to become 'the' go-to resources for women dealing with porn addiction, I also believe it is a must have resource for anyone who works with girls/women in any capacity. You just never know what that person is or will be going through, particularly in this sex saturated culture. It is unapologetically Christ centered, but would also be a useful resource for anyone struggling with this issue, regardless of religious affiliation (or lack thereof).

I can't recommend this book enough.

Dirty Girls Come Clean: Escaping the grip of sexual addiction Feb. 5 2014
By CJohns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Just the thought that young girls and women could be hooked on pornography is mind-blowing enough; but to actually read first person accounts of young girls and women speaking out about their own sexual addiction is an eye-opener. A well kept, dirty little secret is finally out of the bag. Women engage in, and even act upon their sexual fantasies just like men do. This is more than just girls gone wild.

Author Crystal Renaud, a former "bad girl" herself, details in her book, Dirty Girls Come Clean, how she became addicted to sex and pornography when she was just 10 years old. A "dirty" magazine accidentally left in the bathroom by her older brother fueled her adolescent curiosity about all things concerning sex. Renaud's heightened curiosity would draw her even more deeply into the darker world of pornography. She was not only obsessed, she was hooked.

"I soon (and rather quickly) discovered that pornography was everywhere. And it was easily accessible virtually anywhere I went. Leaving absolutely no stone unturned, I engaged in pornography on television, in movies, and eventually on the Internet," Renaud says.
Renaud, admittedly a Christian, would remain faithful to her addiction for nine years. Renaud's bottom hit the rock when she found herself in a cold, dingy hotel room awaiting a sexual encounter with a stranger she'd met over the Internet. You've got to read this book to find out what happened next.

The good news is that Renaud survived her youthful indiscretions and went on to become the founder of Dirty Girl Ministries Inc, which provides women with help, hope and healing from pornography and sexual addiction. Over 2,000 women from all walks of life have sought out DGM's sex addiction counseling and recovery services. It's estimated that Christian women make up about 25 per cent of sexually addicted women but 70 percent of them are ashamed to admit it. In Renaud's book, Dirty Girls Come Clean, former dirty girls find a safe place to bare their souls through their own testimonies of recovery. Dirty Girls Come Clean also outlines a tried and true road to recovery for those experiencing sexual addiction, and makes it uncompromisingly clear in that full recovery is only possible when Jesus Christ is at the center.

If you or someone you suspect is suffering from sexual addiction, help is available. Share this review or better yet, get a copy of Dirty Girls Come Clean for someone you love.

Honest Inventory April 1 2011
By N. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been addicted to porn for as long as I can remember, and I came across Dirty Girls Ministries about a year ago. I found this book refreshingly honest, with it's testimonies from Crystal Renaud and other women who have dealt with this addiction. I am still in the pre-process stage of dealing with this addiction. Over the past 5 years, I have had different periods of freedom. Probably for about 6-7 years, I had been free from pornography, but I was still masturbating. Almost 2 years ago, I spiraled down a dark path of depression, and started looking at porn again. I sought counseling, have friends who I confessed to and stayed accountable to, but I still remained solid in my addiction.

I don't understand it. Recently, like just this week, I was thinking about whether I trust God. Whether He's enough for me. The honest answer is "no." That response makes me uncomfortable, but also I realize how complacent I am in my addiction. Crystal's book helped me become slightly more free to be honest with God, myself, and others. I'm still deep in the addiction, but I hope I can begin to come out with God's help.

Great book Sept. 1 2011
By cllane2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
All too often, people see pornography as solely a male issue. While in years past, it may have been a male issue, with the rise of the latchkey kids (kids who are home alone after school until dinner time or later) and the rise of the internet, pornography is a growing issue for women. It is estimated that close to 50% of pornography users are now women.
Dirty Girls Come Clean was written by a woman who had been addicted to pornography starting when she was a preteen. Renauld wrote the book after dealing with her own struggle and gaining victory over pornography and helping others gain victory in their own struggles. In helping others, she could only find books that dealt with men's issues of pornography.
Dirty Girls Come Clean gives a recovery process for women who are struggling with an addiction to pornography including telling someone about the struggle and having someone keep them accountable.. But it also tells the story of several women's struggle with pornography. Not all of these women have conquered their addiction at the time of writing, but they have made progress in conquering their addiction.
I highly recommend this book for anyone struggling with an addiction to pornography, or anyone who in a position to counsel someone with an addiction.
