Do you believe there is a such thing as sex addiction? Do you think this actually exists?


When someone is caught cheating, violating the trust of their relationship, we come up with psychological terms such as sex addiction. It's not disrespect, dishonor, or labeled bad. It's not infidelity-it's addiction ask Tiger Woods or Charlie Sheen. An estimated 12 million people suffer from some form of sex addiction according to psychologists. The American Psychiatric Association first diagnosed sex addiction in 1987. So I ask you sex addiction, is this a load of b.s.? What happened to being labels: loose, promiscuous, hound dog or man that will sleep with anyone?Is this a true disease?

    There are character flaws and there are illnesses.

    Very true!

    Not everyone has that mental switch that says; "That's enough." whether it be food, alcohol, drugs, or sex.

    When they don't have it that's all they're thinking about. Clearly for these people there is something mentally off.

    "An addictive behavior is a behavior which is both rewarding and reinforcing. It may involve any activity, substance, object, or behavior (that becomes the major focus of a person's life..)"

    As per that definition almost anything could apply.
