Are You a Sex Addict?
Sexologists are not in complete agreement as to what sex addiction is—or if it even exists. Many who adopt a diagnosis of “sex addiction” will state that, physiologically, the brain of a sex addict generates the same neurochemicals that drug and alcohol addiction produces—leading people to engage in excessive behavior. The effect of this is an inability to contain or control the addictive behavior, resulting in the destruction of normal life functioning. However, there are other sexologists who feel the term “addiction” is misleading.
