Question: 

My husband recently admitted to having a sex addiction after a few weeks of attending EMSO to heal from an emotional affair. I have sent him numerous photos of myself for his private use and even have a boudoir session booked a few months from now as part of a Christmas gift. These were sent and booked before this new discovery. With this in mind, do you feel it’s healthy for him to have these photos of me? Is it considered safe for him to use photos of me in my absence instead of pornography or should he just try to abstain from masturbation during the recovery process?
