Are nonparaphilic sexual addictions a variant of obsessive-compulsive disorder? A pilot study

Are nonparaphilic sexual addictions a variant of obsessive-compulsive disorder? A pilot study | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"Nonparaphilic sexual addictions (NPSAs)........have been proposed as an obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder. In the present study we examined the functional differences in repetitive sexual thoughts and compulsive behaviors between patients with OCD (n = 6) and with NPSAs (n = 6). Compared to patients with NPSAs, those with OCD reported significantly more fear and avoidance related to their sexual thoughts. Individuals with NPSAs reported higher levels of sexual arousal associated with their thoughts and a greater degree of sexual pleasure from performing compulsive behaviors.

Personality Disorder Comorbidity in Treatment-Seeking Men with Hypersexual Disorder

Personality Disorder Comorbidity in Treatment-Seeking Men with Hypersexual Disorder | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"This study examines the presence of confirmed personality disorder (PD) diagnoses among 132 men seeking treatment for Hypersexual Disorder, as diagnosed by the criteria proposed for DSM-5. The SCID-II Personality Questionnaire.......suggested potential disorders in 92% of the sample. However, only 17% of the sample met full criteria for a PD based on the SCID-II interview. Thus, whereas personality-based difficulty appears commonplace in these men, the broad, severe dysfunction required for a PD diagnosis does not. This prevalence is higher than expected for community samples, but lower than for either general clinic samples or that found in previous studies."
