-Sexual addiction is a disorder of unhealthy sexual urges and desires distinguished by compulsive sexual thoughts and actions. With so many magazines featuring attractive women on their front cover, it is no wonder that sex addiction is ablaze in many men. Akin to many addictions, sexual addiction has many negative bearings on the lives of the family members. As the disorder develops, it slowly begins to cause major destruction of the addicts’ life. For many sexual addicts, their sexual obsession can cause them to be involved in many illegal activities some of which include rape, obscenity and child molestation. Sometimes their addiction can take an extremely severe form, and their activities become the basis of their imprisonment.
Nearly all sexual addicts suffer from the same emotional predicaments like depression, low self-esteem, desolation, and some are even at the lowest depths of despair. Many suffer from medical problems like HIV, gonorrhea, and genital herpes. Sexual addiction even puts the addict under a great financial burden. Hiring prostitutes does not come cheap, as well as purchasing porn materials or getting prosecuted over sexual harassment.
If you are one of the sex addicts and are searching for a way out of your conundrum then most importantly, you need to learn to accept your addiction and not justify your immoral deeds. You need to get counseling and join a sex addiction treatment program immediately. Consulting a doctor might be a good idea as on his recommendation you can take antidepressants, which are medications with the purpose of dealing with sexual obsessions.
