Sex Addiction

Like many things sex can become addictive. An addiction is the compulsive need for an activity, substance or feeling.

It can be difficult to differentiate between someone with a high normal sex drive or libido, and someone with a sex addiction. Addictive behaviours will usually be followed by a feeling of lack of satisfaction and regret, rather than one of fulfillment.

Someone can become addicted to sexual activity, masturbation or viewing pornography. Once the person can admit to themselves that they have a problem it is helpful to discuss the issue with a health practitioner who can suggest ways of managing the addiction.
