Self Assessment: Sex Addiction

This self-assessment is designed to help you identify key indicators of sex addiction and to raise your awareness of any negative, escalatory or cyclical patterns. It is not intended as a clinical diagnostic tool.

Do I have a Problem with Sex Addiction?

Sex addiction – sometimes described as hypersexuality, porn addiction or sexual compulsive disorder – is a common and very real disorder which can have a devastating impact on individuals, relationships and families.

For those of us grappling with sex addiction, it can feel like an instinctive and unstoppable impulse. Secrecy, shame and guilt can feel like insurmountable barriers to seeking help, and these feelings can be compounded if the addiction occurs alongside infidelity or confusion over sexuality or gender identity.

Because sex addiction can be relatively easy to hide from family and friends, it’s also an addiction which has the capacity to endure and escalate over a lengthy period of time.

As you read each of the following statements, take your time to think about each answer, then tick the box if you believe it applies to you. Only you will see the results of this test, so take the opportunity to be completely honest with yourself. Trying to minimise and deny behaviours or consequences is one of the symptoms of sex addiction.

If you’d rather undertake a free, confidential, tailored assessment over the phone — or would like to discuss your results — our team is available seven days a week on 1800 063 332 or contact us here.

All responses are protected by patient confidentiality. Your answers to individual questions will not be stored or saved.

Take A Self-Assessment

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be.

These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.

Our intake team is available to answer your questions.
