The Truth behind Sexual Addiction.

with 2 comments

The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsiveness has tried to define sex addiction. They see sexual addiction as “engaging in persistent and escalating patterns of sexual behavior acted out despite increasing negative consequences to self and others.”

Similar to drug or alcohol addicts, a sex addict will continue to engage in certain sexual behaviors despite facing potential health risks, financial problems, broken relationships or even arrest.

Dealing with this type of an addiction within the home can be very detrimental to its family members so it is crucial to realize that you have a problem, and do something to fix it.
