Sexual Addiction

Has sexual behaviors become the priority of your life? Do you find yourself spending more time with porn than you wanted? Do you get worried when someone is on your phone or computer because you're afraid they might see what you do in private? Do you keep finding yourself managing multiple romantic or sexual relationships? Do you find yourself doing compulsive behaviors that, if anyone where to discover or know about, you fear it would be the end of your life as you know it? Or despite getting caught, hurting your loved ones, or costing you a great price, do you find yourself going back to these compulsive sexual behaviors over and over again? If this has been your experience then you may be struggling with a sexual addiction. 

For sex addicts, sex becomes the priority for which they sacrifice a great deal for. Just as an alcoholic has an affair with the bottle, the sex addict's relationship is with sex and romance. Distorted fantasies and satisfying behaviors that are obsessive to the point of physical harm are used in an attempt to resolve difficult and painful emotions. Acting out through sexual behaviors has a physiological component. When addicts are lonely, stressed, or depressed, they access key neural pathways in their brain through mood-altering chemicals or behaviors which allows them to feel temporarily better. 

The problem is that this pattern of using sexual behavior to emotionally sooth oneself can lead to feelings of shame and depression. Over time, addiction to this behavior has a masking effect that numbs one to their feelings. And it can lead to isolation and a complete loss of control that, given enough time, and lead one to their "rock bottom."
