What are some the signs of sexual addiction?
Answer the six questions below truthfully. If your response is, “yes” to just one of these questions, you may find it helpful to explore further with one of our therapists. We have additional assessments to help you. A positive response to three or more means you should seriously consider contacting us right away.
1. Do you often find yourself preoccupied with sexual thoughts?
A person suffering from sexual addiction may feel as though sex is taking over their life. Perhaps they find themselves constantly looking at pornography or seeking partners for casual sex. These activities will take up more and more of a person's time until the behavior starts to impact their life negatively.
2. Do you hide some of your sexual behavior from others?
Sex addicts can often find themselves lying about sexual activities they have engaged in outside of their relationship. They will go to great lengths to hide their behavior from a spouse or significant other, even when they know that their activities put their loved one's health at risk.
3. Have you ever sought help for sexual behavior you did not like?
Sexual addiction is just that, compulsive sexual behaviors that a person cannot consistently control. Perhaps you have tried seeking help before but were unsuccessful. This does not mean you have to deal with your addiction alone. A certified sexual addiction therapist (CSAT) can help you regain control of your life.
4. Has anyone been hurt emotionally because of your sexual behavior?
The compulsive behavior often associated with sexual addiction can negatively affect the most intimate parts of a relationship. The effects of this behavior can compromise trust and profoundly hurt those the addict cares about most.
5. Do you feel controlled by your sexual desire?
When a person's sexual impulses start taking over, their life can start feeling unmanageable. If you feel as though you could accomplish more with your life if you had your desires under control, please do not hesitate in reaching out to us.
6. When you have sex, do you feel depressed afterward?
Sex addicts often use sex as a means of coping with problems in their lives, only to discover that they feel worse after the act. There can be a need for more variety and energy in their sexual activities to achieve their desired level of satisfaction. In some cases, a sex addict's self-worth becomes intertwined with their ability to find sufficient sexual satisfaction.
If more than three of these questions resonated with you then it is highly recommended that you reach out and speak with a sex addiction counselor. You can also take the Sexual Addiction Screening Test, a free online survey designed to help individuals tell the difference between addictive and non-addictive sexual behavior.
