Sex addiction: Why you need to seek help

Sex addiction: Why you need to seek help | Sex Addiction News | Scoop.it

"Just like any other addiction, sexual addiction, if not caught early, will progress and turn chronic. "If it does, the addicts could get self-destructive behaviour, such as compulsive and chronic masturbation, compulsive use of pornography, and just constantly find ways to satisfy these desires and sometimes even suicidal tendencies" - See more at: http://www.newvision.co.ug/new_vision/news/1424455/sex-addiction-illness-didn#sthash.80Xe92bg.dpuf

New Research Suggests Porn is Not an Addiction but a Compulsion—Here's Why That Matters - Aleteia

New Research Suggests Porn is Not an Addiction but a Compulsion—Here's Why That Matters - Aleteia | Sex Addiction News | Scoop.it

A new study published in Biological Psychology provides provocative evidence in favor of dropping the addiction label because what’s going on inside the brains of so-called porn “addicts” is nothing like what you would expect from someone who has an addiction."

Paul_M's insight:

I have some problems with the way this test was conducted. In drug addicts, a picture of a drug is a reminder of a stimulus, not the stimulus itself, as a pornographic image is to a sex addict. It is believable that sex addicts would have less of an emotive response from an image, because the nature of sex addiction causes us to constantly look for stronger stimuli, like the drug addict needed a bigger fix.

The porn problem

The porn problem | Sex Addiction News | Scoop.it
For nearly four years, David’s days typically started and ended the same way. Around 6 a.m., he’d wake up, grab his phone or tablet from next to his bed and begin watching porn. Leaving little time to get ready and have breakfast, he’d head off to work around 8 a.m., where he would keep himself heavily caffeinated, anxiously waiting to leave. After work, he would head home, “literally running,” and sometimes skip dinner to spend the rest of the e

Eight years into her marriage, Rachel started to wonder if her husband had lost interest in sex. “He’d always go to bed later than me and often made excuses when I brought it up,” explains the 41-year-old. “So when he sat me down one day to tell me he was a sex addict, I actually laughed – although I soon stopped when he disclosed night upon night of watching pornography for hours on end and numerous short-lived affairs. My life fell apart.”

A letter to … my ex-husband, who preferred pornography to me

A letter to … my ex-husband, who preferred pornography to me | Sex Addiction News | Scoop.it

Porn ruined you. Ruined us. When people asked, shocked, how I could leave such a funny, clever man, father of my children – “a good earner” as my mother put it – what could I say? I said it was me. My fault. I’d changed. Only it wasn’t me. It was your love of porn that slowly diminished my love and respect for you and destroyed my self-confidence. I couldn’t tell them and I’ve never said it straight to you but you must know, you must remember those conversations. The rows.

Paul_M's insight:

A very open, caring, and insightful letter.
