Jay Stringer delves into the topic of sexual brokenness and shares what he considers to be at the root of the issue. While a person’s problem may seem to be all about lust, Stringer believes it may actually be about anger or rejection. Stringer encourages those struggling with unwanted sexual behavior to invite others into their story.
Jay Stringer is a licensed mental health counselor, ordained minister, and nationally requested speaker on the subject of unwanted sexual behavior (i.e., extra-marital affairs, pornography, buying sex, and others). Based in Seattle, Jay has spent the last decade on the frontlines of demand for sexual exploitation and pornography. Jay Stringer’s first book, Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing, is based on a multiyear research project into the stories of 3,800 men and women to address the key drivers of unwanted sexual behavior, why people paradoxically stay in a place of shame, and the journey towards a new sexual story. Jay holds an MDiv and master’s in counseling psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and received post-graduate training under Dr. Patrick Carnes and Dr. Dan Allender while serving as a Senior Fellow at the Allender Center.
