What is Sexual Addiction?

A common myth is that sexual addiction is simply "too much sex." In general, sex addiction refers to a compulsion to perform sexual acts in order to achieve the same kind of "fix" that one seeks in using drugs or alcohol. A sexual addiction may manifest as a compulsion to masturbate, view pornography or seek sexually stimulating situations. Sexual addiction may require an individual to significantly alter activities in order to perform sexual acts multiple times a day. 

Signs & Symptoms of sexual addiction are varied,

but may include:

  • Continued, obsessive behaviors, despite interference with everyday life

  • Obsession with sexual thoughts and behaviors

  • Need to increase the intensity, frequency, or risk of sexual behaviors in order to achieve the same desired affects (tolerance)

  • Increased isolation

  • Failure to resist impulses

  • Withdrawal symptoms when behaviors are discontinued

  • Feelings of distress, anxiety, restlessness and, in rare cases, violence if unable to engage in sexual behavior
