Sexual Addiction And Treatment

When you hear the phrase sexual addiction, there is a certain stigma attached to it. For those whose minds are closed and judgmental, they think that people with this problem are doing it on purpose. Yes, being intimate with your loved one is beautiful and physically satisfying, but this is not the case with sex addicts. Some experts say that it is a progressive intimacy disorder. Others associate it with OCD or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Either way, the point is that sexual addiction is a disorder, a sickness, an illness and at most times, the addicts cannot control it. It is, therefore, a mental health concern.…
