Sex Addiction (otherwise known as Addiction involving sex) involves symptoms of unmanageable behaviour and seeking escape, reward and relief with sex. Typically there is a great deal of time, effort and resources put into obtaining and participating in the behaviours; there are significant consequences to these behaviours; and there is an inability to stop without help in spite of the desire to do so.
Behaviours may include:
• compulsively acting out with pornography and masturbation
• use of escorts
• having sex with others outside a committed relationship
• repetitive sexual activities that interferes with a person’s life so one’s health, relationships, work, activities and responsibilities may be impacted
• Inability to control sexual impulses or acting out
