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.
