Understanding Sex Addiction

It shares many of the characteristics of other addictions in that a sex addict has no control over his or her compulsive behaviour, often resulting in even day-to-day life becoming virtually unmanageable.

One of the traits of sex addiction is its progressive nature. More often than not, there is a distinct increase in both frequency and variety, which can have extreme consequences.

When we talk about sex addiction, many people assume this is simply related to how many sexual encounters someone has over a given period of time. In truth, a sex addict does not
even need to have sex with anyone in order to be addicted.

The advent and rapid growth of Internet pornography has created a whole new set of problems. A pornography addict may spend many hours every day browsing the web, downloading images, creating their own pornography library and even sharing material with other like-minded users.

As with so many other addictions, the consequences of sexual addiction can be absolutely devastating, not only for those addicted, but for those around them. It can result in the addict not only feeling isolated, but experiencing extreme anxiety, depression and even suicidal tendencies.

Sex addiction may or may not include the following:
  • Anonymous sexual activity
  • Voyeurism
  • An addiction to pornography
  • Compulsive masturbation
  • Chronic affairs
