Love for sex and an attraction to its manifestations is a character some of us harbor. Is that enough reason to accept being a sex addict?

And it can go the other way 2. Trying to avoid sexual contact is also thinking of sex and can be an addiction. Intimacy Anorexia is what it is called by some therapists.
M.T.Dremer, I agree addiction is a complicated subject. I was just about to ask: If every other issues you raised in questions are high, but the thought of it doesn't interfere in ones daily life, is that ok?
What is the others around you are not the type you can be open to in that respect and yet, you are stuck with them?
I don't understand what you are saying; but to clarify by others I mean friends. I understand you can't talk to family/parents about your sex life. Most likely you talk to friends about sex, but if you hide certain things from them can be a problem.
My understanding of "others" are people who are more than friends! May be like a partner! Guess I misunderstood you!
Ok I see!! My definition of others usually means friends.... but also can include partners. If you are hiding it from others aka friends/partners/lovers and you are ashamed there could be a problem!!!!
Ok? Please educate me! That's the reason I asked!
Link10103, why especially bachelors? Kind of selective in approach! I will think the issue of addiction, sex drive affects both bachelors and married folks alike!
I felt that for the nature of the question as I see it, it would be better put to use for a bachelor than a married person.
But you certainly aren't wrong.
