In cases I have seen, some common threads emerge and seem characteristic of men who have fallen into sexual impurity:

1. The macho image and a sense of dominance.

2. A perceived failure in one’s job or a blow to one’s ego or pride.

3. A feeling of being “above the rules.”

4. Going easy on one’s self…in many areas like diet or exercise.

5. Carelessly allowing one’s self to be in places or situations that boost temptation.

6. A roving and undisciplined eye.
