a person overtly indulging in sexual acts or fantasies is often very conscious of his excesses but it takes a professional to evaluate the symptoms and confirm the addiction. of course, not all the 'sexually overinclined' are addicted!

Could this idea of 'sex addiction' be missing something? For every person who thinks that they might have a 'sex addiction', there is a unique story about how they have come to this understanding. We are constantly making meaning out of the events and situations of our lives. A good therapist or counselor will help a person explore these meanings and come to a richer and more useful description of what might be troubling them and the way forward.
