Let’s briefly take this ‘Sex-Addiction Evaluation Test’
1. Do you feel powerless over how you act sexually?
2.Are your sexual choices making your life unmanageable?
3. Do you feel shame, embarrassment or even self-loathing over your sexual acts?
4. Do you promise yourself you’ll change, but fail to keep those promise?
5. Are you so preoccupied with sex it becomes like a ritual to you?
If most of your answers are YES, then you need to consult a health care professional for proper evaluation.
Can Sex Addiction Be Treated?
Like any form of addiction. There is generally ‘no cure’, however the good news is that SEX ADDICTION CAN BE TREATED AND PREVENTED.
Treatment involves psychotherapy, behavioural therapy, group therapy, marriage or couple’s counselling, use drugs like anti-depressants, anti-androgens, and treatment of mental illness or other underlying cause of the addiction.
Edgar Allan Poe said this about addiction ”I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
