Jay Manning and AJ Lester are exactly the same person: me :)
Jay Manning is the pseudonym I originally used for many years with Porn Free Power, and AJ Lester is my real name.
Either way, I’m the only person who has ever been associated with Porn Free Power, and everything else I’ve ever shared about myself is 100% genuine and factual.
If you want to know more, please read on for some background.
The Background and Why I Used a Pseudonym
When I first started Porn Free Power in 2014, I decided to use the pseudonym “Jay Manning” on my website and materials.
This was mainly to separate my Porn Free Power work from some other projects I’d been working on, but also partly because I was a bit self conscious about using my real name in connection with quitting porn at that time (maybe you can relate).
Now it’s been long enough and I’ve reached a point where I’m happy for people to know my real name, so I’m now using it for everything I do with Porn Free Power.
Besides the Name, Everything Else Has Always Been 100% Genuine
Even though I used a different name in the past, I’m still the exact same person as I’ve always described on my website and in my materials.
So all other details I’ve ever shared about my background, my personal story, my challenges with quitting porn and everything else are completely factual.
The only change is the name you see on my emails, website and resources.
Why I Decided to Use My Real Name
After all these years of helping people to overcome porn addiction, I’ve entered a new stage of what I want to achieve with Porn Free Power.
In particular, the process I’ve developed for quitting porn permanently now works so well that I really want to reach more people with it so I can have an even greater impact in future.
In doing this, it simplifies things a lot to just use my real name.
I also now provide other services besides help with porn addiction recovery (especially coaching people in relationships and communication), which I already deliver under my real name.
Because these other services also help people who are dealing with porn addiction, it actually makes more sense now for me to use the same name for everything I do so it’s all aligned.
And of course, I’ve also now reached a point where I’m no longer concerned about people knowing about my difficulties with quitting porn in the past :)
You Can Still Call Me What You Want
In practice, I know that addressing people by a particular name is very habitual and can be hard to change once it sticks.
So if we’re chatting by email or in person, I absolutely don’t care if you call me “AJ” or keep calling me “Jay”.
I’m still the same person either way and I’m going to keep working hard to give you all the help and support you need to quit porn for life.
Please just ask if you have any questions or concerns about the name change or anything else.
PS: If I missed something during the changeover and you still see the name “Jay Manning” anywhere on this website or in any materials, please do me a favour and let me know!
