What is Sex Addiction ?
Sex addiction describes any sexual activity that feels ‘out of control’. A sex addict feels compelled to seek out and engage in sexual behaviour, in spite of the problems it may cause to his/her personal, social and work lives.
- Compulsive masturbation
- Compulsive use of pornography
- Having multiple, ongoing affairs
- Dangerous sexual practices
- Anonymous sex
- Telephone sex
- Chat room/online sex
The type of behaviour does not define addiction. The essential difference between the addict and the non-addict is that these behaviours feel out of control. An addict may spend an inordinate amount of time planning, engaging in and recovering from their chosen sexual activity. And in spite of the physical, emotional, relational or financial risk, they feel unable to stop their behaviour. Or at least, unable to stay stopped.
