According to renowned expert Doug Weiss from his SexAddict.com website, here is a quick way to understand the subject: Sex addiction is the active using of a sexual behavior, whether it is masturbation, an internet porn addiction, fetishes and/or behavior with self or others in a compulsive life-destroying pattern. This is a real issue impacting millions of individuals, marriages, and families around the globe. The impact is felt in the life of the addict and his or her surrounding family members and friends. You and the one you love can recover from the damaging effects the addiction can have on your relationship. Whether you are an addict or the partner of an addict: you are not alone and there is hope!
It is often in response to unresolved conflict to traumatic events, but certainly has a biological component to it. For more information on the subject and how to deal with it, please contact us.
