What is sexual addiction?
Sex addiction, also known as sexual compulsivity, is any sexual behavior which has become out-of-control, resulting in shame, secrecy and despair for the individual and his or her family members.
People with sexually addictive/compulsive behavior often report that they have developed a double life, are isolated, and overwhelmed by anxiety or depression. The behavior often impacts the individual's relationships, family life and work or school.
Sexual addiction is often rooted in past trauma, neglect or abuse.
