What is sex addiction?

Sex is a normal part of life, and when enjoyed in a healthy manner it can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Many individuals reach a point when their sexual activity crosses a line and becomes destructive to themselves and those around them. We regularly find that sex addicts struggle with underlying emotional or psychological problems. These often stem from early life abuse such as physical or sexual trauma or emotional neglect. These individuals may need sex addiction treatment to live a better life.

Sex addiction can become physically and mentally harmful. Sex addicts often engage in high-risk sexual behaviour such as: unprotected sex, soliciting sex workers, infidelity, having multiple sex partners etc. Often sex addicts are unable to control their urges and are preoccupied by sexual desires. A sex addict may use sexual activity to cope with anxiety, depression, and life stressors. One may be classified as a sex addict if repeated attempts to stop engaging in a certain type of sexual behaviour are unsuccessful. Sex addicts may have trouble keeping a job, experience marital issues, and even encounter legal problems.
