Sexual addiction , also known as sex addiction , is a state characterized by compulsive participation or engagement in sexual activity , particularly sexual intercourse , despite negative consequences. Proponents of a diagnostic model for sexual addiction consider it to be one of several sex-related disorders within an umbrella concept known as hypersexual disorder. Related or synonymous models of pathological sexual behavior include hypersexuality nymphomania and satyriasis , erotomania , Don Juanism or Don Juanitaism , and paraphilia -related disorders. The concept of sexual addiction is contentious.
Recognizing the obvious signs of sex addiction can help identify if a patient has crossed the line from a healthy enjoyment of sex to an addiction that needs professional assistance. Indications of problematic sexual behavior include:. Sex addicts will continue to engage in sexual behavior despite financial problems, potential arrest, health risks, or broken relationships. The condition can destroy relationships and cause an individual to feel enslaved by their addiction to sexual thoughts and acts. Sex is part of a normal, healthy life; however, when sexual activities or thoughts become consuming or habit-forming, it crosses the line into addiction. Sexual addicts experience tremendous amounts of guilt and shame over their behavior because they feel they are not in control and live in constant fear of being discovered.
