Psychological Therapy for Sex Addiction Problems

Sex Addiction has entered into the common language of society today and up until recently has not been taken very seriously, although some high profile celebrities have recently “confessed” to being sex addicts. (Charlie Sheen, Tiger Woods, Michael Douglas amongst others) – You can read about Addiction in general here.

Sex addiction can place an enormous amount of strain & stress on a relationship but do not think that it is a problem confined to the bedroom.

Sex addicts typically find themselves watching more and more pornography, perhaps paying for sex, or indulging in ever more risky sexual activities.

Sex addiction displays the classic characteristics of any addiction whether that is alcohol addiction, drug addiction or any other and this is probably due to the fact that when we have sex our bodies release massive amounts of Endorphins (pleasure chemicals) into our bloodstream which create feelings of Euphoria.

Sex Addicts spend more and more time seeking this chemical reaction, often neglecting the other things that they should be doing with their time.

What are the symptoms of sex addiction?

Sex Addicts often demonstrate single-mindedness in the pursuit of sexual activities and the following symptoms or behaviours could indicate Sex Addiction:-

  • Paying for Sex
  • Multiple sexual partners in secret
  • Sex with strangers on a regular basis
  • Swinging
  • Spending lots of money on sex phone lines
  • Masturbating excessively
  • Routinely choosing sex over other important activities
  • Needing the buzz of sex more and more

Is Sex Addiction Common?

Judging by the amount of publicity that sex addiction now seems to be attracting it seems likely that this is a bigger problem than once thought. Although figures of 5% of people has been bandied around, it is likely that the figures is higher and that it just doesn’t get reported as much due to the nature of sexuality and morality in our society.

Men and Women, it seems, are both affected in equal proportions and the growth of the internet has allowed private indulgence in sexual addiction (Pornography in particular) to grow beyond all measures.

Internet sites for meeting like minded sex addicts are easily accessible from the privacy of your own computer terminal!

Therapy for Sex Addiction

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has been shown to be effective for this and related issues.

Our CBT programme will help you to develop a fundamental understanding of your own particular belief systems and thinking styles that have supported your view of this problem.

Once you have gained this deep level of understanding, you will then learn the tools and techniques that will allow you to take control of your thinking and to then be bale to take control of the problem.

Is Addiction Real?

Many scientists now question whether or not an ‘Addiction’ is a ‘real’ phenomenon created by a ‘hook’ or is actually more to do with what a person ‘believes’. Some research suggests that addiction is related to the degree of social connection that a person has or has not.
