  • Sex addiction
  • Sexual addiction is best described as a progressive intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts. Like all addictions, its negative impact on the addict and on family members increases as the disorder progresses.
  • Compulsive masturbation
    Use of pornography
    Phone or computer sex services.
    Addiction can involve illegal activities such as exhibitionism, voyeurism, obscene phone calls, child molestation or rape.
  • What Causes Sexual Addiction?
    People addicted to sex get a sense of euphoria. Addicts use sexual activity to seek pleasure, avoid unpleasant feelings or respond to outside stressors, such as work difficulties or interpersonal problems.
  • Symptoms of Sexual Addiction
    Spending considerable time in activities related to sex, e.g: spending hours online visiting pornographic Web sites.
    Neglecting obligations such as work, school or family in pursuit of sex.
    Feeling irritable when unable to engage in the desired behavior.
  • Research also has found that sex addicts often come from dysfunctional families . One study found that 82 percent of sex addicts reported being sexually abused as children. Sex addicts often describe their parents as rigid, distant and uncaring.
