Does sexual addiction actually exist?

Sexual addiction otherwise known as sex addiction or addiction to sex is a compulsive or repetitive preoccupation and participation in the engagement of sexual activity often to excess. This description relates to hypersexual disorder which is prevalent mainly in males and also experienced in females to a lesser extent.

Whether it’s called sexual addiction, sexual dependency or hyper-sexuality and nymphomania in females or satyriasis in males, they all boil down to the same thing which is addiction to the pleasure and satisfaction of sexual activity that provides gratification and release.

Often the individual who is experiencing addiction to sex is preoccupied excessively to the point of obsession with sexual thoughts and feelings and/or fantasies which intrude upon and interfere with their daily activities.

This addiction could also stop people having normal healthy relationships.

Many sufferers of sexual addiction often describe it has another form of obsessive-compulsive behaviour because the engagement in sexual activities, whether it be in reality or imagination is still the same which is of a repetitive and obsessive nature.

The abnormality often experienced is an intense and overwhelming sexual drive with the mind constantly dominated with thoughts of having sex or engaging in fetishes related to desire, pleasure and satisfaction to the exclusion of everything else.

Some people even deny there is a problem and just think that’s how they are possibly no different to others.

There is a strong link between the addiction to sex and the taking of risks otherwise known as risk-taking and sex danger.

Sometimes the need to engage in the risk or the danger which can carry serious consequences involving health complications, criminal and legal proceedings and damage to existing relationships such as emotional turmoil and distrust between loved ones.

Sometimes people with addiction to sexual activities may already have a healthy stable relationship but separate themselves and enter into another seedy world of direct activity, unfaithfulness or pure fantasy.
