Sexual Addiction Needs Support

Sex addiction is no laughing matter and it needs to be taken as seriously as any other form of addiction. Sadly, there is not much public support for this malady. This is one of the main reason why sex addicts try to hide their problem and go on with their life as best as they can, depending heavily on their will power which always fails them in the end!

In the West where problems like dysfunctional families and loneliness are more common, there is more support for the condition with groups like Sex Addicts Anonymous offering support.

Assigning the tag of ‘disease’ to sex addiction might take the responsibility of his sexual excesses away from a person and this could be a dangerous trend especially in this internet era when sex is just a click away!

Calling any addiction a disease might make it seem “beyond control”. This is not true, as an individual is responsible for all the choices that he makes.

Let us remember that sex addiction has its roots in loneliness, emotional depravity and a deep need to be accepted, cared and loved. These are ‘real’ needs that have to be addressed if the addiction is to be overcome.

It may sound clichéd, but a little bit of love does, indeed, go a long way !

People who have sex addiction should get help soon. It can save their lives and their relationship with other people.

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.
