“Sexual addiction can not be dealt with alone. I have not experienced, nor have I met anyone who has experienced sexual addiction recovery alone and maintained not only abstinence, but a life-style of sobriety. When you are not alone, then you are accountable.”

These are questions commonly asked about sex addiction and what can be done to help the sex addict.
What is Sex Addiction?
Sexual addiction is a defined as a method of medicating feelings and/or coping with stress to the degree that one’s sexual behavior becomes the major coping mechanism in their life. The individual often cannot stop the sexual behavior for any great length of time by themselves. The sex addict spends a lot of time in the pursuit of his or her sexual behaviors/fantasies or they have a binge of sexual behaviors. Check out my YouTube Video for more information on “Am I a Sex Addict?”
Why do people become sexually addicted?
According to AASAT there are six types of sex addicts. 1. Biological 2. Psychological 3. Spiritual 4. Trauma Based 5. Intimacy Anorexic 6. Mood Disorder

What’s the difference between sex addiction and high sex drive?
I have been asked this question on almost every national talk show or radio show I have been on over 20 years. A person with a high sex drive is satisfied with sex. It’s not about a fix for something; when their partner says “NO” it doesn’t make them go off the handle feeling as if their partner is totally rejecting them and that they have to leave the house or act out in some way. If you can relate to the latter, chances are there may be an addiction issue.
Can you be addicted to masturbation?
Yes. This is by far the most common sex addiction that I have treated in working with sex addiction. This usually is the first sexual behavior many will have on a repeated basis. This is usually how the sexual compulsion starts and this behavior, regardless of other acquired behaviors, usually stays active. This behavior usually starts early in adolescence while the brain is still developing.
What role does pornography play in sex addiction?
For many sex addicts, pornography combined with regular masturbation is the cornerstone. Many sex addicts have great difficulty getting sober from this combination of behaviors. The pornography with accompanying fantasy creates an unreal world that the sex addict visits throughout their adolescence and other developmental stages and creates an object relationship that conditions their emotional and sexual self to depend upon these objects and fantasies to meet their emotional and sexual needs hundreds of times before having sex with a real person.
THE FINAL FREEDOM
A roadmap to help you begin and navigate an incredible journey towards freedom.
Can someone be a sex addict and not be sexual (or intimate) with their spouse or committed relationship?
YES! We call this later stage of sex addiction- intimacy anorexia. In this stage of sex addiction, the addict prefers the fantasy world and fantasy sex with themselves or others instead of relational sex with their spouse or partner. The addict/anorexic avoids relational sex and hence this couple has sex infrequently and often only at the non-addicted partner’s request.
Is there any other way to help our children not become sexually addicted?
Yes! Even though many of our adult male clients report that their fathers were sex addicts (porn, affairs, prostitutes etc.), they also report getting little to no proper sexual information to balance their sexual perspective. We have created two DVDs addressing healthy sexuality for teens. Born for War teaches young men practical tools to defeat the sexual landmines their generation faces and offers scriptural truths to empower them to desire success in the war that is thrust upon them. Princes Take Longer Than Frogs helps single women ages 15-30 successfully navigate through the season of dating and how to distinguish between a Prince and a Frog.
What is it like to live with a sex addict from a partner’s perspective?
Partners or wives living with a sex addict typically report common feelings, such as aloneness, or the sense that the partner can’t open up and talk about his “real” self. Confusion comes as a result of doing certain behaviors that are still not enough and hopelessness that there isn’t enough. Anger from many unmet needs, are often common. Many of these issues are addressed in our books and DVDs.
Can women be sex addicted?
Yes! The number of women desiring treatment is growing significantly. The behaviors are the same as their male counterparts, including: masturbation, pornography, internet activity, anonymous encounters and affairs. Over twenty recovering female sex addicts contributed in writing She Has a Secret: Understanding Female Sexual Addiction. This book plus the Secret Solutions Workbook, with over 115 helpful techniques for recovery is just for her. If you would like to set up a counseling appointment to start your journey of recovery, call today. There is hope for female sex addicts for recovery.
Can partners get help even if the sex addict doesn’t?
Yes. Even if the addict stays in denial of their addiction, the partner can receive help and support for herself. The feelings of anger, loss, loneliness and many other feelings encountered over the years of living with this addiction will affect a person. These feelings need to be dealt with therapeutically whether they stay married to the addict or not. If you would like a more information on a counseling appointment, call (719) 278-3708. As a partner or wife, the addiction is in no way your doing; the addiction started many years before you even met your addict. This addiction would have grown and damaged anyone they would have related to, in any relationship. You can subscribe to our Partners Newsletter by visiting our Newsletter Page.
Is there recovery from sex addiction?
Yes, there is recovery for sex addiction. This recovery takes time and hard work especially in the first year but with guided help the sex addict can experience restoration in their emotional, relational, sexual, financial and even spiritual lives. I have seen marriages made better than they ever were and addicts live much happier lives than they ever thought possible. I have been in successful recovery for over twenty years and know help is available for those who choose to work for and maintain recovery. If you would like a more information on counseling , please call (719) 278-3708. Check out my YouTube Video for more information on Help for the Sex Addict.
