What is Sex Addiction?

What is Sex Addiction?

Currently I am on an airplane going from my prior home in Milan, Italy on my way to my new home in sunny California, I am writing you today’s top secret edition of True Potential TV.

Have you ever been humiliated, rejected or embarrassed?  Do you fear others judgment or criticism?  Unless you are an alien from outer space, you and most earthlings have these universal raw spots and sensitivities.

And if you or your partner are coping with delicate sexual issues or taboo sexual behaviors you may either keep it secret, hidden or pretend these issues don’t really exist.

In today’s True Potential TV episode, I am uncovering one of the most unspoken, yet addicting sexual taboos around.  Curious?

After working with couples around the globe, I have come across a sexual epidemic impacting many couples all over the world.  This sexual epidemic is known as sex addiction.

As this is a very private topic, which typically doesn’t come up in casual dinner conversation, I am peeling the kimono back (Bata Bing, Bata boom) so you too can discover the honest truth about the biology, criteria, patterns, and habits of someone who is sexually acting out or dealing with sexual impulsive behaviors.

You will definitely not want to MISS this sexual rendezvous of discovery.

Excerpts from video blog:

What Is Sex Addiction?  Sexual addiction is best described as a progressive intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts. Like all addictions, it negatively impacts the addict and the family members as the disorder progresses and the addictive behaviors intensify.

The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity has defined sexual addiction as:

  • engaging in persistent and escalating patterns of sexual behavior acted out despite increasing negative consequences to self and others.
  • For example, someone with a sex addict will continue to engage in certain sexual behaviors despite facing financial problems, shattered relationships, potential health risks, or even arrest.

Symptoms of Addiction

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders, the symptoms of sex addiction are:

  • distress about a pattern of repeated sexual relationships involving a succession of lovers who are experienced by the individual only as things to be used.
  • compulsive searching for multiple partners
  • compulsive fixation on an unattainable partner
  • compulsive masturbation, compulsive love relationships and/or compulsive sexuality in a relationship.
  • extensive use of pornography, phone sex, cyber sex or other illegal activities like sex with a prostitute or fellow sex addicts.
