The NoFap Experiment: A Voyage Through Porn Addiction, Support and Recovery

The NoFap Experiment: A Voyage Through Porn Addiction, Support and Recovery | Hypersexual Disorder - Sex Addiction | Scoop.it


"A community support group on Reddit.com, known as NoFap, has begun to push back against their own addictions by voluntarily abstaining from porn use. These participants believe that their porn use has become a problem in their lives, and together, they're making an effort to regain a state of normality and overcome their addictions. Here, we'll explore the demographics of these users, the issues they've faced because of their addictions, and their experiences with giving up porn."

We often joke about being addicted to our phones, but it's a problem that actually affects thousands of people worldwide.

Hypersexual Behavior Inventory (HBI)

This link directs to a .pdf file of the Hypersexual Behavior Inventory, a 19-item self-report measure yielding 3 factors: Control, Coping, and Consequences. These three factors assess a respondent’s (1) control over sexual thoughts, urges, and behavior; (2) consequences associated with hypersexual behavior; and (3) the extent to which an individual uses sex to cope with uncomfortable or unpleasant affective experiences. The measure is reported to discriminate well between controls and hypersexual patient samples and was developed based on the DSM-V proposed classification criteria for Hypersexual Disorder.

 

This information first appeared in:

Reliability, validity, and psychometric development of the Hypersexual Behavior Inventory in an outpatient sample of men. Journal of Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, 18(1), 30–51 (2011).

 

Authors: Reid, R. C., Garos, S., & Carpenter, B. N.

Authors: Rory C. Reid, Sheila Garos and Bruce N. Carpenter

 

In thi sstudy, psychometric properties of the Hypersexual Behavior Inventory (HBI) are reported using treatment-seeking samples of hypersexual men. The psychometric properties of the HBI suggest it reflects the proposed DSM-V classification criteria for hypersexual disorder and has both the clinical and research utility to advance a more comprehensive understanding of hypersexuality.
