WHAT IS SEXUAL ADDICTION?
Sexual addiction is any sexually-related, compulsive behavior which interferes with normal living and causes severe stress on family, friends, loved ones, and one's work environment. For more information or to complete brief anonymous Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) please visit www.recoveryzone.com.
Sexual Addiction is a compulsive behavior that dominates the person's life. Sexual addicts make sex a priority more important than family, friends, and work. Sex becomes the organizing principle of addict's lives. They are willing to sacrifice what they cherish most in order to preserve and continue their unhealthy behavior. Progression of time and/or type is frequently reported.
Definitions and behaviors of sexual addiction
Sexual addiction comes in many different forms. There is no single type of behavior or even amount of behavior that will indicate you are a sexual addict. The problem is much more complex than can be explained in a few words and if you have been living the life of a sex addict, you know how difficult it is to describe what you are experiencing.
Three basic things to consider when you define sexual addiction are:
Do I have a sense that I have lost control over whether or not I engage in my specific out-of-control sexual behavior?
Am I experiencing significant consequences because of my specific out-of-control sexual behavior?
Do I feel like I am constantly thinking about my specific out-of-control sexual behavior, even when I don't want to?
