    His message was such a relief. To see it all play out in a presentation in a Ted talk...

    Your work will be recognized by the God and Angels. Lots fun to reborn as a porn quitter. I felt that journey will be harder for both my generation and future generations. I hope your work will bless us and wash our sins away.

    I learned from Gary at The Heartwood Institute in 2000-2001. Gary and I hit it off right away. I loved his unfiltered teaching methods. Gary spoke what he felt in the moment. He was always had a smile and liked to joke around. His passion for anatomy and physiology was contagious. He was a great guy. I remember Marnia showing up at heartwood and watching their relationship blossom. I could tel that she was a great influence on him right away. RIP Gary

    We deeply regret the loss of a great human being. His work has been very important and helped many people in the world. Thanks to his books and exhibitions we have a very large source of knowledge about the evil that lurks with the consumption of pornography. We pray to God to have mercy on him and to give him eternal rest. We are united in prayer, for him and his family. He will continue to shine through his works, he has left a legacy of virtue in humanity. May he rest in peace.

    Like most people I first became aware of Gary's work via his website. I was immediately struck by his clarity of expression, his thoroughness, and his steady good sense. This was eight years ago now but it was already obvious then that pornography was creating very real problems for many of its users, even if the idea that it could be addictive was still loudly rejected by people who should have known better.

    I was lucky enough to work with Gary on the book he wrote based on his research into the scientific literature of addiction in general and pornography addiction in particular. He was a marvellous author; always clear about what he wanted to do, and what he wanted the reader to take from the text. In all the years I knew him he always managed to make things clearer (even when I did my best to complicate things).

    I'd like to express my condolences with his friends and with his family. He did fine work, and he helped a lot of people, and that's a lot to say of anyone,

    Some things change one's life forever. Pornography addiction is one of them. Many men think that watching it compulsively, as many do, is just a normal part of ourselves, society has also embraced this idea, and nowadays not using it seems rather weird and foreign. Mr. Wilson taught us that it is okay to not take this path, be independent of pornography, and speak up for millions of us who have to deal with this problem. I did not know him personally, nor do I know the people in his surroundings, but I am pretty confident about the fact that he was a good man, an honest man. A man who decided to raise his voice in a world where men and women have to take the over-sexualization of society as a standard. Thank you very much for giving us hope

    Thanks you for your selfless investment in getting accurate information out about the science of the addictive nature of pornography. You will continue to impact generations to come. You have fought an invisible war and paid the ultimate price. I will not forget you.

    Gary,

    Without knowing me, you were the one who changed my life (you actually saved me from suicide). Thanks to you, I figured out what was wrong with me. Just like me, there are thousands or even millions of people that you impacted in a possitive way. I still can't believe you're gone, I wanted to have the honnor of meeting you one day.

    You're work will be considered a great contribution in the history of science/medicine. You left a mark in hummanity. I just wish you didn't have to go... it wasn't your time. Thank you for saving my life. I will always look up to you, you are the type of people that should be admired.

    Death is life...


    THANK YOU, Gary. I say it from the heart.

    Thank you for your tireless efforts to tell the truth about sex and porn addiction. When they make the movie about society's recognition of sex and porn addiction as public health hazards, your character will be the star.

    It is really unfortunate that I learnt the news of the death of this great person.. I am wordless, Gary was a wonderful person and a world-class academician in his field. He had inspired many including me and will continue to do so to countless people around the world. He might have physically left our world, but his legacy will live on...

    Thank you for everything you've changed in my and many others' lives Gary, rest in peace...

    It is with great sadness and sorrow that I have received the news of the passing of Dr. Gary Wilson. My deepest condolences to his wife, Marnia and his son during this difficult time.
    My first acquaintance with Dr. Gary Wilson was when I watched his video "The Great Porn Experiment" on YouTube. I liked his message because it was distinct in its content and did not match the mainstream ideas on this topic, which motivated me to read his book. As a mother of four, I immediately realized that I had found a valuable treasure. Trying to convince a young man to abstain from watching porn because it is not good for him is a very difficult task, and Your Brain on Porn provided me with the information and vocabulary that enabled me to talk about this topic in a simple and clear way that is at the same time scientific and objective. I believed then that this book should be read by all parents and educators, and this motivated me to translate the book to Arabic. The memory of Dr. Gary Wilson will live through his works and words, and I hope that my humble effort has contributed to spreading his knowledge and conveying his message.

    ببالغ الحزن والأسى تلقيت نبأ وفاة الدكتور غاري ويلسون. تعازينا الحارة لزوجته السيدة مارنيا وولده في هذا الوقت العصيب.
    كانت بداية معرفتي بالدكتور غاري ويلسون عندما شاهدت الفيديو من مؤتمر تيد "التجربة الكبرى مع الإباحية الجنسية" على اليوتيوب. أعجبت بأفكاره لأنها كانت متميزة في مضمونها ولا تساير النمط السائد حول هذا الموضوع مما حفزني لقراءة كتابه. كأم لأربعة أبناء أدركت على الفور أني قد وجدت كنزا قيما. إن محاولة إقناع الشاب اليافع بعدم مشاهدة الأفلام الإباحية لأنها ضارة له هي مهمة صعبة جدا، وكتاب دماغك تحت تأثير الإباحية أمدني بالمعلومات والمفردات التي مكنتني من الحديث في هذا الموضوع بشكل بسيط وواضح وفي نفس الوقت علمي وموضوعي. ارتأيت عندها أن هذا الكتاب يجب أن يقرأه كل والد ومربي، وكان هذا هو الدافع والمحفز لي على ترجمة الكتاب للعربية. ذكرى الدكتور غاري ويلسون ستحيا من خلال أعماله وكتاباته، وأسأل الله أن يكون جهدي المتواضع قد ساهم في نشر علمه وإيصال رسالته.

    I was in complete denial about my porn addiction for years. After struggling with addiction with drugs, alcohol and other obvious types of vices. I had the anti-porn people down as stuffy, dogmatic gatekeepers of sex itself and I carried a lot of negative preconceptions about them.

    Gary's book changed all of that in one read. His science-based approach to the dangers of porn addiction helped me immediately see why my motivation had recently been shot, my romantic/intimate relationships more sterile and why I was full of so much self-loathing.

    This is the very short story of course. Like many other men, I can't possible say in a few paragraphs how much this great man's work changed my life for the better. I'm incredibly saddened by his premature passing, but find deep inspiration from him knowing that you CAN make a difference if you fight the good fight with truth, passion and communicative writing.

    Sending my best wishes and love to his family members and close friends. Gary has left behind a true legacy and I have no doubt that it will continue to change people's lives emotionally, physically and spiritually.
