What is sex addiction?
Sex addiction, also known as compulsive sexual behaviour, hyper sexuality, or sexual compulsivity, is a behavioural addiction characterised by an excessive and uncontrollable preoccupation with sexual thoughts, urges, or behaviours. This pattern of behaviour often leads to negative consequences in various aspects of an individual's life, including their mental health, relationships, work, and overall well-being.
Individuals with sex addiction may engage in a range of behaviours, such as:
- Compulsive masturbation or pornography consumption.
- Multiple sexual partners or extramarital affairs.
- Persistent use of sex chat rooms or online dating apps for sexual purposes.
- Engaging in risky sexual behaviours, such as unprotected sex or sex with strangers.
- Using sex as a means of coping with stress, anxiety, depression, or other emotional difficulties.
- An inability to control or reduce sexual behaviours despite a desire to do so.
- Neglecting important personal or professional responsibilities due to sexual preoccupations or activities.
Like other behavioural addictions, sex addiction can be progressive, with the individual needing more frequent or extreme sexual experiences to achieve the same level of satisfaction or excitement. They may also experience withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, anxiety, or restlessness, when they attempt to reduce or stop their sexual behaviours.
Some factors that contribute to the development of sex addiction include genetic predisposition, environmental influences, and psychological factors, such as past trauma, low self-esteem, or intimacy issues. Sex addiction can lead to various negative consequences, including relationship problems, sexually transmitted infections, unintended pregnancies, and mental health issues.
